Book Description

John's Town knows no greed, violence, or poverty. It is a Utopian world in which all live peace and happiness; the perfect society mankind has aspired to for generations. Yet Aire has always been suspicious of the smiling faces around her, certain there are dark secrets behind every set of laughing eyes, behind every perfectly painted door.

When the military begins to "recruit" people in the masses after an unexplainable virus hits the city, Aire decides to flee for help. There’s just one problem; no one leaves John’s Town alive


Beware the blue lion...

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing in a world of badly written fiction September 3, 2012
By Kara
Format:Kindle Edition
In a world where popular literature consists of Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey, I was pleased to pick up this well-written book on my Kindle and enjoy a plot with some depth. G-157 was a quick, engaging read with an intriguing plot and an epic conclusion. It flowed freely and captured my interest with a couple of cool stylistic additions (note the "Population" count at the beginning of each chapter) as well as a gritty style. Be warned that there are some graphic descriptions of physical and sexual violence, but the dystopian nature of the story commanded an honest look at the ills of society.

Summary: G-157 is a sharply written social commentary on government and society that still manages to sweep the reader into the charm of what a utopian world COULD be.

4.0 out of 5 stars When knowledge becomes dangerous! September 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book. I think the author did a good job of making it somewhat realistic. It is, after all, fiction & we are dealing with human beings. However, I believe, if we're not careful, in reality, something like this story could be considered. It made me think about people with money. Don't get me wrong, I wish I had more!! But having lots of it means we lose some fears. It allows some people to think they're not only powerful but that their opinions mean more than others. Less powerful people can be convinced with money to agree with the more affluent. Therefore, if someone is convinced they have the answer to world peace & the means to conduct live experiments, what's to prevent fact vs. fiction unless we have morals. People usually don't have morals w/o some sort of religious beliefs which would prevent the thoughtless action in this story. Do we really want to eradicate all religious tendencies from our world today? Do we really want to make it possible for something like this to take place in our futures?

3.0 out of 5 stars Really good story...but unfortunately... September 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I could have really liked this story - alot. Should definitely have had 5 stars...except for the dozens, if not more, of misspelled words. One simple proofing could have changed so much. It's like the author didn't care...and I guess that made me not care either. How unfortunate .

5.0 out of 5 stars A little something for everyone September 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
G-157 is very well-written. The first several chapters cleverly give you the back story while keeping your interest with the main character. It is a real page turner.

The author is thoughtful in how the groundwork is laid for John's Town, making it not only plausible, but gets the reader to think it's possible in this day.

The twists and turns are surprising and graphic. Where many writers may shy away from some of the grit, G-157 captures it, and really gets you emotionally involved with the characters and town.

The story has a little something for everyone; rebellion, teen angst, conspiracy, love, science fiction and a brilliant social commentary.

I am definitely looking forward to K.M. Malloy's next project.
