How to make a prequel book off a movie script yet to be released.....this is why we don’t do that. There is no character dev whatsoever . It jumps around way to much. I’m not even going to try the next book. Movie looks interesting enough though.

The Founding Fathers tried to protect us from the threat they knew, the tyranny that overcame ancient democracy. Today, our political order faces new threats, not unlike the totalitarianism of the 20th century. We are no wiser than the Europeans who saw democracy yield to fascism, Nazism, or communism. Our one advantage is that we might learn from their experience.

It’s disgusting comparing today’s political party to nazis. Author is completely blind to his own parties agendas and actions.

Ok book until I realized it wasn't going anywhere in the last 3-4 hours when it went from being a gamer fantasy to .... a virgins rendition of their fantasy sex life.
The last 4 hours had nothing to do with anything other than sexual relationships .... I guess if you are into that then great. Story line pretty much dropped off a cliff at that point
