In part two of the book, a "normal" who married a depriver is on a quest to find out who killed his wife. Again, this strikes me as straight out of the Fugitive.
The derivative nature of this book notwithstanding, it's not a bad read. The pace moves quickly and some of the characters are moderately interesting. Makes a good book to read on a plane.
While Cassie's brother is in captivity, he learns that the government is on the verge of discovering them and outing them to the general public. The extremists, led by Governor Tynsdale, want federal laws mandating that Deprivers register and wear gloves at all times. When Nicholas breaks free of his confinement he meets Cassie and their underground group at their New Jersey house. They and other deprivers fly to Holland to announce their existence before the government can put their own spin on SDS.
DEPRIVERS is a raw, compelling and thought-provoking work of science fiction that leaves readers very unsettled because they project the official treatment of Deprivers onto what has happened to groups in post 9/11 society. The audience will believe that the government will stereotype all Deprivers into one group, spun as dangerous and thus rationalize second class citizenship. There are many heroes in this book who use whatever weapons at hand to diffuse tensions and hostilities between Deprivers and normals.

Steven-Elliot Altman's Deprivers is as frightening as the Hot Zone and reminiscent of the Aids scare of the 80's. Read morePublished on December 15, 2003 by R. Andrew Heidel
