The premise of a modern day civil war is a scary, and not too implausible, scenario, given the current political climate. Richardson draws readers in with detailed descriptions of battle action in several U. S. cities. Much of the action takes place in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex which makes the book all the more realistic and frightening to North Texas readers.
Even though The Twenty-Nine would have benefitted from a little more proofing and editing, it is a provocative read that will have readers speculating long after the last page is read.

One major player's mother's health issues even become a political platform for the author to make sure everyone knows that Republican=ignorant and heartless.
The story starts well and kept me reading. But once we went back in time and met one of the major players and his family, I was appalled by the writing. In one paragraph, there was an adjective before every single noun. Do I really care what side the guy parts his hair on? Is everyone's eye color important to the plot? The carpet color - really?
The crude references to anything of a sexual nature seemed forced and sophomoric. Mr. Richardson is a teacher and some have speculated that this book should be listed as YA writing. Perhaps he thought that's how his students would have preferred the story.
All told, the story is intriguing. Being a DFW resident and a former Gulf Coast resident, the scenes taking place in those locales were well done and accurate geographically. The concept is one most Americans have considered as a possibility. The problem was the execution. The book literally jumped from disquiet over the recent election to secession in one chapter break.
I finished it (skimmed a LOT) because I had to - it was a book club selection. The biggest problem is it was MY choice for the club. I think I better bring a really, really good snack.
