an Independent - with Democratic leanings - on the political
spectrum, I was highly skeptical of this libertarian fantasy novel but
decided to read it on a friend's recommendation. Going out of my comfort
zone here was certainly rewarded with this amusing and thought-provoking
M. Crawford: "A
genre unto itself. Unlike most libertarian-leaning dystopian
fiction, this book is actually fun to read....After I read this, I
couldn't help wondering why the likes of George Orwell and Ayn Rand had
to be so grim (more...)."
Action! Political philosophy! Full Asylum is the story of the
transformation of an office geek into a James Bond-like character as he
tries to stay one step ahead of a government that's taking away
liberties in the name of social good....Enjoyable and thought-provoking (more...)."
and Fun. This
novel reads like it was set in Dilbert's cubicle, with George Burns,
Gracie Allen, and some combination of the Monty Python Cast and the Marx
Brothers in the cast (more...)."
Christine Morabito, President, Greater
Boston Tea Party: "Atlas
Shrugged with professional wrestlers. A whimsical window into the world of Big
Government, spy movies, and cavity searches."
"Was it good? No,
it was outstanding....I’m a sucker for eccentric characters, and
there are some real gems in this book, particularly Brownie, the old
hippie with a surprising love for dangerous technological tinkering...I
think every single conservative and libertarian out there with a shred
of humor would love this book....I’m not kidding – get it (more...)."
"A great read (more...)."
"A fun new addition to my library, it combines
action, humor, and the real issues of 2012. This timely piece is a fun
read for anyone looking for an interesting perspective on the serious
problems we face today, while also getting away a bit from the reality
of it all (more...)."
"a fun read, but also a thoughtful piece that will
have the reader laughing and crying at the same time. (more...)."
