COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Dark and unfortunately appropriate for our time submitted by lballard on June 15, 2018, 12:42pm This dystopian novel shows what would happen if the worst of our culture came into power. It’s hard reading it with the echoes of some current politicians statements in the air. Still, it’s painfully well written.

Pretty good submitted by zmclaugh on July 26, 2018, 12:44pm I like a lot of the concept of this book and the overall plot. I find it very believable, unfortunately. I do, however, find that it definitely drags in spots, which takes away from my overall enjoyment.

Excellent submitted by KOH on August 27, 2018, 3:12pm Really well written story of a dark dystopia which feels timeless. Or maybe too timely.
