25 Perfect Days: A Dystopian Novel Kindle Edition
A Dystopian Nightmare Full of Horror and Heartache
A totalitarian state doesn't just happen overnight. It's a slow, dangerous slide. 25 Perfect Days chronicles the path into a hellish future of food shortages, contaminated water, sweeping incarceration, an ultra-radical religion, and the extreme measures taken to reduce the population. Through twenty-five interlinked stories, each written from a different character's point of view, 25 Perfect Days captures the sacrifice, courage, and love needed to survive and eventually overcome this dystopian nightmare.
This couldn't happen. Could it?
What editorial reviewers are saying:
"Don't let the title fool you: the 25 PERFECT DAYS of the title are perfectly disturbing, a walk through a possible future as bleak as George Orwell's 1984. Scary, realistic, and satisfying."-- Jodi McMaster for IndieReader
"..one of the better science fiction books I've read in a long time...This is a novel that deserves much more acclaim." -- Josef Hernandez for Minneapolis Books Examiner
"If you love dystopian stories with a wide scope of realistic social and moral issues, you'd probably enjoy 25 Perfect Days." -- Fantascize
"25 Perfect Days will hit a nerve. You WILL recognize some of these fictionalized events as part of the world's daily reality, past, present and probably future." -- Dii
"From pacing to word choice to character development to layering I loved everything about the writing style. Smooth reading with vivid descriptions from start to finish." -- para
"Keep 'em coming Mark Tullius! Each book is better than the last!" -- haven
"Welcome to a world where everyone is programmed to do what others tell them to and where those that disagree will not see the light of another day...a story that will keep you wondering: Fact or Fiction? Real or Imaginary? Could you live through these 25 Perfect Days?" – Samfreene

This is a grim, dark, puzzling book. One of the bleakest and most hopeless things I've read.
I love it!
As the name tells you, the twenty-five short stories cover 25 days in the life, which don't begin to approach perfect. The stories tie together, but subtly. I'll read the book again, partly because of its writing, partly so I can sort out the characters. Pay attention to them, because some appear again, from one to several stories after you meet them.
A church called The Way is at the top of the food chain and rules through armed thugs. People meet their maker for bizarre reasons, "making weight," for example. Yes, just as an athlete who is considered too heavy to play in our own world is cut from the team. No one is safe. Why? Either the terminations are capricious, or they are cleaning out those who don't embrace The Way. I think both.
My favorite part of 25 Perfect Days was how the author did not spoon feed the reader everything he/she needs to know. Many things are left up to the reader to infer, and fill in the blanks on his or her own. Some authors go so far out of their way to leave nothing to the reader's imagination that it was a refreshing change.
My least favorite part of 25 Perfect Days was the difficulty at times in keeping the cast of characters straight. Part of that stems from the larger number of characters, and also due to any character not appearing on more than a few pages at a time in a story. However, the author includes a list of the characters at the end of the book; bookmark this section right away, but beware of spoilers when looking at it!
I would recommend 25 Perfect Days to anyone wanting to read a near-future dystopian novel...limit yourself to just one story per day fro 25 days, give yourself time to absorb and think about each story.
one is deeply engaged from the first notes of the shudderingly good 'five minutes alone'. \m/
it's a cliche come true, an unrelenting page turner. a book that will make you think and feel. and one you will never forget.
And if you like the way this written I suggest you read Complicity by the late Iain Banks.
