5.0 out of 5 starsA Excellent Story About How the Simple Act of Reading Books Can Lead to a Revolution
Reviewed in the United States on January 27, 2020
I always enjoy dystopian books where our protagonist not only fight the powers to be, but do so in simple ways, as in this book by delivering old paperback books to the populace. This helps people think for themselves by creating independent minds. It also shows us that while e-books may currently have its advantages, having books in the printed form also has its advantages because its more difficult for the government to rewrite these books and alter their messages.

This was a short story that has been ruined by padding with endless repetition of detail that adds nothing to the story. Literally 1/3 of the book says Marsmen love hard boiled detective paperbacks, by listing every author and main character the writer could find in a books in print or library catalog search. The main characters keep rethinking the same ideas. Then in the last 50 pages the story is re-summarized and concluded. It was so bad that I couldn't believe a publisher would have paid to print it on its own. I'm guessing that this was done as a "write 300,000 words" assignment using 1984 as the backdrop to say that as paper publishing is replaced by electronic there will be no way to tell real from fabricated and mind control will dominate the world.
