Editorial Reviews

Review

"JoshuaHarding's Red Lakes depicts our world set in the future, aftera nuclear war has devastated humanity. Set in what was once Russia and Ukraine,the NSSR (New Soviet Socialist Republic) maintains absolute power over itscitizens by controlling what they eat. The people are kept fat, lethargic, and ill by feeding them only foods from the approved "Holy Menu" as conveyed by the Savior Rahnuld--burgers, fries, and cola. Reminiscent of Soviet Russia, people inform on each other to Main Authoritative Komitet (MAKs) to keep themselves safe, lest they be the ones tortured for being suspected of consuming vegetables or turning against the regime. There is a black market for fresh vegetables, and the rebels fighting the NSSR are known as Vegeterrorists. The Premier, MigLenin, is a clone of the founder of the state, and the story follows the life of Sergei Aleksandrevich as he discovers he is also an enhanced clone of the founder to be trained as MigLenin's successor. As he is kidnapped, separated from his pregnant wife, and groomed for his new path in life, he faces the decision to either become the future Premier or join theVegeterrorists in changing the future.
 
"This novel was a well-written, fascinating read. Red Lakes may be set in the future, but it bears a striking resemblance to the current social and political environment. In a world in which it is easier to find processed junk food than fresh, organic produce, and where the government creates laws around reproduction, Sergei must make a choice: to maintain the status quo, or fight for a better system. Each twist brings the reader deeper into the novel, and pushes the reader to find out what decision Sergei will make. It is not a light, easy read, but it is brilliantly written and hard to put down." -- AuthorsTalkAboutIt.com.
