Review

"As America's debt level continues to rise, Indivisible is a fictional story that could one day turn real." -Glen Tate author of the '299 Days' series

From the Author

Thank you so much for checking out my little novella of doom. Warning: If you cling to romanticized notions about America's political system and institutions you may find this book offensive.

More About the Author

Troy Grice has been an avid reader of dystopian novels and science fiction since his teens. He describes his own stories as "abrasive satire" and "counter-propaganda." His fiction questions authority, attacks establishment corruption, and decries the semi-lucid who enable it. He believes that true journalism is extinct and that the novelists, musicians, and bloggers comprise the last Fourth Estate.

When he's not working or writing, he enjoys making noise on his Gibson Les Paul, and spending time with his family in the foothills near Evergreen, Colorado.

Indivisible is something of a prequel to the author's outrageous first book Goldstein. It initially follows several characters as they experience an economic crash in the United States caused by excessive government spending and borrowing. Eventually, the story settles on a lead character in the person of Vaughn Clayton. He is recently unemployed and living in snowy Colorado with a wife and young child at home.

Law and order quickly breaks down as the value of the dollar crumbles. Store shelves are bare and fuel is prohibitively expensive when available. An underground economy starts to emerge, but government intervention quickly outlaws its activity. The greenbacks keep rolling off the presses and the entire free trade system implodes.

This is the backdrop for an excellent thriller and I eagerly await Mr. Grice's next book.

Note - I suppose I'm getting used to reading self-published books because the spelling and grammatical errors don't phase me a bit. There were a few times when I had to re-read a sentence, but it certainly wasn't difficult considering what a page-turner this book is. Beggars can't be choosers, and if one limits oneself to only reading polished works by major publishers, one would be missing out on a lot.

I'm happy to report that Grice's Indivisible is a book that, you should be warned, you'll likely read through in one sitting. Screw sleep.

The book centers on the coming financial collapse and four characters around that. One is a regular guy with nothing special about him. He's not in the patriot movement at all, not a survivalist or weapons expert, and has only a regular guy's worries about his wife and child. Another is a disturbed veteran soldier and his comrade in arms, whose beyond disturbed and into the psychotic. Finally, there's the lawman, an Under Sheriff who takes himself and his badge a little too seriously and his estranged wife, a Deputy of the U.S. Treasury.

The story weaves around these characters as the financial collapse hits America and the people slowly realize the end is nigh. Most of the action takes place around Denver, Colorado as the soldiers are brought home to quell the "rebellion" and bring order - usually amounting to the slaughter of civilians and mass desertions of both professional soldiers and National Guard.

Mostly, though, the story revolves around the everyman and his quest to get his family through the collapse intact. He is both helped and hindered along the way by the others in the story. He works to get through what he must do amidst gasoline shortages, food shortages, parasitic government employees, etc.

In the end, this is a great book and very well worth reading.

Wow! An excellent read I finished in 2 days. Can't wait for the sequel, but I will.

The story unfolds rapidly with building excitement, suspense & drama. Essentially the Fed's print too many dollars, cause hyperinflation, then shortages, civil unrest & an ugly martial law. Great writing though, as the novel follows several different characters working through the mess: soldier, sheriff, gov't exec, suburban couple, etc.

Can't remember the last time I read a novel & was sorry to see it end. You won't be disappointed.

I read a lot of post-apocalyptic type books and this was one of the best. It starts out very Tom Clancy like with the international political intrigue and continues to weave a very interesting and well thought out story from there. I thought that the description of the eventual economic collapse was detailed, well researched and very plausible.

In response to the negative ratings, the book did not come across as a rant at all and I think the only one star ratings are from people who sharply disagree with the author's politics. That is not a valid way to critique a book.

The story sounded true and I would recommend it to everyone. No, I will recommend it to everyone. Is there a sequel?

I didn't really know what to expect when I began reading this exceptional tale. Several panoramas opened up and began to converge together in complex fashion, much like happens in some of the best movies you've ever viewed. The tension and suspense built up steadily to an incredible finish, and lose ends were sewn up to satisfaction. I was left with the feeling I'd just witnessed something momentous (and also frightening beyond description). I truly enjoyed the story, and I hope with everything I have inside of me that it never comes to pass; because it seems like something which could happen all too easily, especially with the way things are headed lately. A must-read for sure.

If you want to read a book that will make you appreciate what you have, and that will make you sit back and consider how fortunate you are to have the freedoms that are left, then this is the one for you. I read this book cover-to-cover in one sitting because it was so engrossing. The story pulls you through the disintegration of the United States, eventually plotting citizen against government, and even government factions against each other (state vs fed, etc). The tale is told through the eyes of 4 main characters that converge in the mountains near Denver, CO. The writer has quite a wry sense of humor and definitely knows the jargon of the genre ... definitely recommended!
