Book Review-Populace-A M Wilson

Tuesday, April 3, 2018


What a strange book this is. I think it is kind of about what could happen in the future if the world keeps going the way it is. There is a distinct division between the rich and the poor. Both are controlled by the use of various drugs and robots who keep everyone in line. Some people are clones---all are just living an existence that well-----

Meanwhile there is a machine that once detonated will change the current world back 10,000 years or so in a few seconds-----The rulers all want this machine-----

Can Tom survive outside the New United States? Can he and his few friends survive the rulers--all out to change or kill them--

Read this novel to find out.


About the Book: (from Amazon)

America 2151. New York. Washington. Chicago. Los Angeles. All wiped out from nuclear blasts.

The New United States of America is centered in Omaha, where the Leviathan Corporation provides a muted, controlled existence for its populace. Synthetic drugs keep them sane. The people are safe — for now — from the threats on the outside.

Summoned to the president’s office, unlikely hero Thomas Ignatius Stout receives an extraordinary mission: Hunt down and return, dead or alive, the vicious killer responsible for destroying the lives of millions and millions of Americans, Joe Ikowski, who remains a thorn in the government's side. Tom accepts his burden and leads an expedition past Omaha's protective barrier and into the great unknown.

That’s when Tom’s journey really begins.

Taking him from Kentucky to Arizona to Mexicali and the Rocky Mountains, Tom finds far more than he is searching for — and starts to learn the deeply complicated, disturbing truths of his own identity and a world in which he had only before scratched the surface.

In this poignant page-turner, a novel that blends elements of science fiction, political thrillers and an Orwellian-style future, rising novelist AM Wilson takes readers on a wild ride inside what could become the future of the United States, if we ruin ourselves from the inside. It’s a novel that will make you think, no matter what you think of America.

America does have to be cautious as does the world. Twelve year old children are having children, respect isn't so well known, women are working to support their man's habits. Only some care about the way the world is. Few recycle and reuse, or care about what we are leaving for our future generations. Anyway about the book, It sounds mysterious, scientific and futuristic for those who like that stuff it will be a good read.

This reminds me a little of Divergent and the Hunger Games.... which I really like. It does sound different, but I think I would probably like it.

This looks like an interesting story and a bit scary.

The story sounds fascinating. Apocalyptic or dystopian themes are always interesting if sometimes frightening to read. Especially in the world we live in today.
