About the Author
Paul K. Lovett is a seasoned Hollywood screenwriter with the emotional scars, caffeine addiction and chiropractic bills to prove it. He is best known for the feature film Four Brothers, starring Mark Wahlberg. Paul has penned over thirty scripts in every genre for most of the major studios, including Universal, Sony, Paramount, Fox, Disney, Dreamworks and HBO. The Evolution of Robert Carr was born out of a desire for genuine self-expression, resurrected from the smashed and trampled piñata pieces that once comprised Paul's creative integrity. He lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and daughter.

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.
