Chosen for my book club because I trudged through "Wolf Hall" (didn't think I would ever get to the end) because it covers a much shorter period of time, I had enjoyed watching "The Tudors" so much and wanted a different perspective on events and personalities, and this book moved at a much more enjoyable clip.
This is a thorough, fascinating history of SWAT and the drug war. I had been reading a lot about the militarization of law enforcement in our cities and towns by DHS, but this book illustrates current conditions in fully sourced detail and in-your-face terms. It is easy to read and difficult to put down if you are interested in this subject matter. It uncovered a multitude of stones and left me with am understanding of the depth of the problem, a curiosity and concern for the status of law enforcement in my home town, and a desire to get involved in rectifying this trend. This book is not an attack on law enforcement, nor is it political propaganda. It is a presentation of the evolution of policies that have incentivized both law enforcement and the public to seek and applaud the militarization of our police, loaded with facts, examples, and references. I highly recommend this book to admirers of the television series "24" and its hero, Jack Bauer. I thoroughly enjoyed that series from start to finish, never once faulting Jack for his methods of saving the day. That's the beauty of television. This is real life. Freedom loving Americans need to read this book.
Taken is one of those books I feel like I've been waiting forever to read. But once I started reading it, I felt like I'd just started it and it was already ending. I have been dying to know, what happens to the boys during the Heist? Where do they go? How does the population survive? Since the first time I saw the premise of this book, it has probably hooked me better than any other book I've ever read a premise for simply because boys disappearing right in front of everyone?? That's a scary thought.
Gray has an older brother, Blaine who is taken in the beginning of the story. I've never had a book made me swallow the lump in my throat by the third chapter, but when Gray talked about how lonely he was, I was about to bawl! He's this big strong boy that hunts and takes care of himself, but inside, he's this scared kid. He's lost everyone he loves and he has no one to talk to about his feelings. It is really sad.
The world is very Hunger Games like. Except the men aren't men. They are boys. Otherwise it kind of reminds me of a town in a western movie. There is no technology and rudimentary medical supplies. They have no electricity or running water. No indoor plumbing. But except for the Heist, people seem satisfied with their lives, not living in poverty.
Then there is the Wall. It's as if it's a living breathing thing. It Walls the people of Claysoot in and the rest of whatever else is out there, out. Brave or scared individuals have climbed the tree that reaches the top of the wall and tried to look past the wall. All that's visible is black nothingness. Anyone that goes over the wall, their body turns up the next day, charred and burned. Some boys do this to escape the Heist.
I am stopping my review here. I haven't told you anything past the summary because I'm not going to spoil anything for you. But that is just one quarter of the book. It took me only a couple of hours to read this book, I couldn't put it down. Plus, I had to know what was going on. I LOVE Gray Weathersby. He is impulsive and rash, but he has so much fire and life to him, he's such a great character. He wants to save everyone and I love him for that! The writing is easy and as you might have guessed, fast paced. There is a lot of character growth and a lot of action. Things that could have been over explained were thankfully only gone over once. Everything was explained just enough, but not in too much detail, to make it interesting but not cumbersome. And no cliffhangers or insta love!
I'm ready for the next book, please! Can I be a Beta reader? Please!!!
Great start to a new dystopian series! Recommended for lovers of dystopians with some romance, maybe a bit of sci-fi and great characters.
Let me know if you read it and what you thought!
I received an E-Arc of this novel from HarperTeen through Edelweiss for review. The opinions expressed are my own. I was not compensated for my review.
Being on the The Plan I've learned that it's not about calorie counting, which is a huge shock to me (i was a counting calorie weigh everything person and even had a BodyBugg from the Biggest Loser tv show to help), but eating foods your body can digest. I was told by a doctor to cut out all acidic foods (coffee, wine, chocolate, chile', etc), and that didn't work. I was still getting sick daily.
Being on The Plan I've found out I can actually have all those things including Half&Half & sugar w/my coffee, as many chocolate almonds I want, REAL butter with anything & still lose weight. There's no carb/fat/protein counting. And I can eat unlimited Unsalted Kettle Chips (2-8oz a day) & still lost weight. Kind of crazy but true. I've cut out all salt (and some other stuff I found I was "reactive" to), unless it's sea salt. Thus far I've dropped 2 dress sizes without any exercise and I'm not sick daily! That's huge for me...as I was getting afraid to eat anything at all. Unfortunately it's not helped my fibromyalgia in any way, but hey at least one health problem is in check.
I'm so grateful for this book!
