I received this book as a review copy, and stated my policy that I would not be able to review it unless it had more than 3-1/2 stars, or had some significant literary merit, or offered a unique viewpoint of benefit to the 6 or 7 billion of us on Planet Earth. In accord with those reservations, I offer this review. I didn't much like the beginning - kind of slow, kind of implausible, kind of wooden characters, uncertain point of view...John Galt pops up years later, he's been cropdusting or something, he's married now, he's still a little out of touch with reality. But who isn't? I kept reading through the middle, didn't like that much either - kind of a kabuki theater of the absurd, Officer Monday out on a mission to clean up the neighborhood, strange characters appearing out of the mist...yes, some are easily recognizable as present day actors, Michael should expect some legal difficulties. Why can't we have a modern literature like the old literature with memorable characters like Yossarian, Count Alucard, Morticia Addams? I didn't like the end, either.
In short, a thought provoking book, that might make you feel a little uncomfortable, and might become influential. When Michael comes through town, I'll go get a signed copy. You should too.
His observations of what has transpired in America over the recent past is very telling of a nation in hurt and perhaps even mortal peril. Please read this work and learn from a reasoned and well educated writer and American.
