The story follows Grant Matson, an attorney in Olympia, WA who works to oppose the increasingly liberal state government of WA. He begins to realize the fragility of our economic system and what the repercussions would be if the house of cards collapsed. He begins to take steps to be able to protect his family (whether they want him to or not) in case his worries become reality - which it does.
Note: Glen Tate (not his real name) has confirmed several times that many of the characters in the books are base on real people and their actions in a "what if" situation. Grant IS Glen....and the story is a good one. As educated and well spoken as Glen Tate is, though, I'm somewhat surprised the writing style is more simplistic and lacks the smooth writing style I would expect. Still well worth the read!
Here's the sad truth:
Nothing draws me into the main character. Why do I care about what happens to him? Bottom line: I don't, because there's no substance to latch on to.
The other thing that made the book entirely unreadable to me was the flow. Every sentence is a fragment. A sentence longer than a handful of words is uncommon. The sad thing is that there are some very, very good sentences in there. The good ones almost make trudging through the bad worth it. Almost. Another thing is that everything happening is TOLD to me, I don't get any descriptions or imagery of ANY kind whatsoever. I'm told how he thinks and feels, and it almost feels insulting. I want to be able to see how a character feels by his actions, his body language, his facial expressions, what he says vs what he means, etc. I don't want to feel like I'm reading an outline of plot points in a movie script, but that's what this feels like: a shell of a story waiting for the fine details to be filled in.
I love the idea, I love setting (grew up in Washington), absolutely hate the execution. Couldn't even get past the first chapter.
This makes David Crawford's "Collision Course" seem good and THAT's saying something.
