Great disutopian novel

For those who enjoy considering alternate realities and disuptopian thrillers here is a book for you. The characters are fun, the ideas intriguing, and the concepts are scarily a real possibility. Though written in the 70s, this novel is still relevant.

Great vision of a libertarian revolution.

An interesting take on how agorism could work. The parallels to the current US economic situation and "deep state" are a little chilling. All wrapped in a Heinlein style adventure with a very mature teenage boy as the main protagonist.

Enjoyable story

Recommended to me by a member of an Anarcho-capitalist FB group. Entertaining and suspenseful yarn on the financial collapse of the US and the exploits of its teenage hero Elliot who must find his family. Short, with plenty of attention to detail, but pace never drags. Excellent narrator, changes his voice perfectly for each character.

outline

This is an outline partially flushed out, rather than a completed work. Several interesting concepts, but poorly described.

And the narration is truly atrocious.

A Libertarian Dystopian Dream Come True.

What did you love best about Alongside Night - The Movie Edition?

The book is very intriguing and is the anti-Red Revolution.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Alongside Night - The Movie Edition?

I loved the scene where the characters are at a drug store and are able to buy all illicit drugs off of the shelves with no regulation and simple disclaimers. Fantastic!

What does Alex Noble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A decent rendition, but I found, at times a bit rushed.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Close. Two sittings.

Any additional comments?

It appeared the narrator was a tad rushed at times, but overall I would highly recommend this book.
