Let's just say... the gov't overreached, and got smacked for it. If I go into any more detail, I'll spoil the plot. I very much enjoyed this book!!!
Please give it a read; I'm guessing that if you like certain things, then you will love this book, too.
First, I encountered several textual errors, at least in my copy which could be an anomaly.
Stylistically, I think there was some unneeded re-casting of real-world entities (i.e. "FOX/ROX News," "Huckabee/ Huxtable"). At times, the political rhetoric came across a little too heavy and forced.Throughout the book we are also given detailed insight into the background and personality of various dramatis personae whom we never meet again, so much that at length I began to skim these descriptions. The dialogue felt unnatural a few times as well, to be honest.
However, I could sense the tension in the storyline and it prompted me to think of how such moves would indeed be dealt with and handled in the current day.
In all seriousness, this world function excellently as a cinematic piece or an audio drama but the book series, again, has an intriguing premise and
generally sufficient execution.
