Like the earlier works "Good Intentions" provides a clear prediction of where our ever expanding government is leading our society. It is not a pretty picture and, as outrageous as some of the things mentioned in the book may sound, it has a definite ring of truth. Any clear thinking American should consider this as a call to action.
Back to my question, what's not to like?
The problem is "1984" and "Atlas Shrugged" carried the same message and that message was pretty much ignored or minimized by the mass of people. I fear that "Good Intentions" will suffer the same fate; Zeidman may simply be a modern version of Cassandra.
Another consideration is that "Good Intentions" is a great literary work that provides a dark but somewhat realistic view of the future. What it does not do is provide a plan for how we can avoid the kind of society described. And, to be honest, the picture is a bit exaggerated presenting a one sided argument ignoring many of the realities of modern society. Of course a strong case can be made for just presenting one side since the `other side' is well engrained in our everyday political discourse, especially by politicians pushing a `progressive agenda.Read more ›
Once you start reading "Good Intentions", you won't be able to put it down. I read it on my Kindle while flying across the country. There were times I laughed out loud at some of the crazy rules and technology developments in this new world, and other times I felt my skin crawl when I realized that some of the events in the book have already started to happen. The best books evoke a range of emotions and connection with the characters, and this book does all of that and more. This is the best political book I've read in years. Buy it, read it, and tell your friends!
This is the not the first book that I have read from author Bob Zeidman but this was certainly different.
this book provides a very thought provoking, and somewhat frightening, loko at what could happen to our society if this insistence on "Political Correctness" carries on at the same alarming rate that it is now.
What seems to be a good thing takes a dark turn with this satire filled book which reminded me a great deal of the movie Demolition Man in places.
Clever and well thought out, I am not sure I would use the term enjoyed for it but I would recommend it for people who might enjoy a different take on dystopian fiction. For me this was worse than any of the post apocalyptic stories I have read because this book hits really close to home!
A well deserved 4 stars from me V""V
