What I can tell you, is that this story is one of the most impactful, insightful and wonderous stories I have ever read. After finishing, I sat alone for hours contemplating what I had read. Mr. Lovett has defined our modern society to a T.
This is a scathing condemnation on our society from politics, revolutionaries, evangelical churches, the military and government alphabet agencies. The national media also comes under scrutiny as a voluntary tool of government propaganda.
The total inequality between the rich and the impoverished is highlighted as being the source for government exploitation and political expediency.
This seems to be a modern day equivalent to Atlas Shrugged. I am greatly impressed with this piece of work as social commentary. Just wait until you meet Dex!
If you don't like books that make you think, this one will also fill the bill in that respect, as it's also a great story. It's difficult to read without seeing the references to our current society. The ending is such a surprise, I don't want to give it away.
Try this one out. I'm sure it will make an impact.
I would say that the author and I agree politically. However, even to me, it seemed a bit preachy with an obvious liberal bias -- regardless of the fact that it's all true! I couldn't stop wondering how someone who didn't agree with the politics of the author would have reacted to the book.
One of the biggest issues I had with the book was the poor editing. I don't know if the author had an editor at all, as there were issues that never should have made it to press -- starting on, I believe page two! "They only thing they were doing faster..." was an obvious typo, but there were instances of just poor grammar/diction. "The ruckus engine" instead of raucous. "...a mute point" rather than moot point. Someone should have known better-type issues. There were more of both types.
But the book was good, and I did enjoy it. It explored a subject that is quite current and should be explored. It opened up a world that is quite different from our own but similar as well. I liked many of the characters. I wish we'd gotten to know the grandfather a bit more.
Don't get me wrong. This was a good book, probably worthy of at least another half star (I wish I could give those). It just had some issues.
