For me, it highlighted the problems of poverty and how the downtrodden will rise up eventually, and that it only takes 'someone with charisma' to lead the way to a better life and so bring downfall to those who have always taken advantage and thought themselves more worthy. Of course, we have all heard the phrase, 'absolute power corrupts absolutely', and history shows us this has happened time and time again, although in this book, I'm certain that the weaknesses of the 'leader' weren't just a result of the newly-found power.
I am not sure if this story was in response to the idea that poverty in certain countries is viewed a sin, and a person's own fault, rather than the biased systems in place. Whatever the reason for the tale, I could certainly relate to the fact that only 1% are lucky enough to live the way they wish, and that medicine (one example) is only available for those who can pay. And whether or not whoever takes over may be just as bad?
I thought the characters an excellent mix, which were developed brilliantly to suit the tale.
A revolutionary, controversial, worthwhile and thought provoking read.
I liked this book, but for me it wasn't a quick read.
There is an outbreak of a deadly virus can lead to an epidemic, people are worried. A drug company comes up with a cure for the infected and a vaccine to prevent this deadly disease. But it comes with a high price tag, one that only the rich can afford.
Soon a group of citizens decide to steal the drug in order to help the poor people. Will they be able to pull this off, and how far will they go to gain control of this drug.
At times a bit graphic, but this scenario in my opinion could become reality. With rising cost of health care and medications Fall of The Citizens left me chilled to the bone. A fantastic psychological thriller.
Fall of the Citizens, although not perfect, is a good story. Packed with action, it is quick paced and offers a few interesting twists.
However, there were a few passages that were in my opinion cringe worthy. From a feminist point of view, this is not perfect. It remains, however, no matter what, an highly entertaining story.
Fall of the Citizens follows an organization named the Citizens in what could be called a good old battle of the classes with an interesting twist. The story starts in a country is shaken by an Ebola epidemic where americans are left with very few choices: to die or to pay 60k$ for the vaccine that will both cure them and protect them against future infection. That vaccine has been developed by Wellco and they retains a monopoly of its production and distribution.
Wellco is also in charge of those who are already infected and unable to afford treatment: they are packed into a building called Quarantine and all information is kept secret (for the sake of "patient confidentiality").
This situation lead to the formation of a group, the Citizens, who basically wish to distribute the vaccine free of charge and to overthrow capitalism while they're at it.
However, the Citizens aren't exactly your neighborly bunch of tree huggers. No, no.
They have chainsaws and they're not afraid of using them.
It sounds awesome, I know, because it is!
All in all, Fall of the Citizens is an interesting read, full of bumps, that will keep you glued to your chair for hours. I tend to be a slow reader and yet, it took me only a few days to get through that one. The story is compelling and that's the book's greatest strength. It is not perfect but it is entertaining enough. Give it a try, you won't regret it!
The story would be good, but not told as it is being told now. While I do believe pharmaceutical companies would attempt this, and get away with it, I think the whole idea could have been put forth in a nicer and more entertaining manner. And the pharmaceutical company is the only believable thing in this book.
So, I give 2 stars for effort and that is all.

This is a great story that really kept my interest. A group of misled people, led by a thug named Max, take over Detroit. The plot is suspenseful, and the ending is satisfying. Read morePublished 18 months ago by No Zombies
Plot ok, but development of plot was...meh. Could have expounded on more characters or plot events. Not a fan of use of language either, it felt a bit too much like street language... Read morePublished 19 months ago by Dodgepodge
