Larken Rose writes from a premise that many modern Westerners have not yet considered - that being the ideal that we really are born free. Due to an educational system and culture which immerse us in what acceptable and expected behavior mean, we seldom break out from this very limited way of thinking and seeing. Without help, it is nearly impossible.
With the help provided in Larken Rose's book THE IRON WEB, many more people are opening their eyes and minds to the reality of those deceptions, controls and schemes that surround them. This is a GREAT thing. Add to that the fact of the book's interesting story line and excellent editing and you have a GREAT read at a very reasonable price.
I'll be reading more of Larken Rose's work and soon.
However, I still am giving this book a 5 star rating for two main reasons. First, despite the writing, the story itself is still a gripping thrill-ride that keeps you hooked until the end (which comes all too quickly, as the book is rather short). Second, the book's uncompromising pro-freedom perspective is amazingly refreshing. I hope to see similar works in the future, from this and other writers.
The author has realistic perspective from all characters. The author brings events and decisions into the story that made me care about what happens to the characters, both the good guys and the bad guys. Its written in raw layman speak: there's no layer of political correctness or terminology that you have to decipher.
The primary moral of the story is: You own yourself. You have the moral high ground to defend your property, no matter who wrote the laws.
Disclaimer: In practical, even if you have the moral high ground, defending yourself versus government may very well get you thrown in a cage or killed. So it very well might not be in your best interest to defend yourself for the time being.
All that said, I hope those buying Iron Web purely for an entertaining novel will enjoy its perspective and I hope the ending speech communicates the author's message as I believe it to be important and valuable. However, even those who find the closing tedious should still get the central message of Larken Rose and I hope that message will sink in deeply.
We need for people to more accurately perceive the government. Iron Web might do the job but even if it fails in this vital mission, it should keep your attention.
Good job, Larken!
I don't read much fiction, but bought The Iron Web out of curiosity, after viewing several of Larken Rose's YouTube videos and I am very happy that I did.
The paperback book arrived and I began reading it on the commuter train and could not put it down. I went to bed reading it the first night and woke up and read more on the morning after that, as well as on the train to work.
I then bought the Kindle version to read on my computer during down time at work. This book was the focus of my life for the past three days. I finished reading it today and I intend to buy several copies to share with my friends and family members.
Thank you Larken Rose!
