    This author and his book are what is wonderful about indie authors I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book I was also enlightened in my realization that the Orwellian theme of the book could happen in our country.There are a number of good reviews that will lay out the characters and storyline so there is no reason for me to rehash those great reviews However, I do want to chime in with a few comments about the

    Having read Sinclair Lewis s IT CAN T HAPPEN HERE as a young man, I found FORTY DAYS AT KAMAS gripping from beginning to end Lewis wrote during the 1930s, when America suffered from the Depression and Europe turned to Fascism and Communism Today, America s economic and social problems bring back the specter of a government takeover by a would be President for Life If you have ever been afraid of how America could be taken over

    I received a free copy of this eBook for review, from the author Beginning with the good The writing is well paced, many of the characters are well developed and generally well realized, a lot of attention had been paid to getting details right, and other than its length I hold any book over 80k words to a higher standard I never felt strongly compelled to quit reading it If you like the idea of reading 130k words that effectively start

    I really enjoyed this story based in the future Some will find problems with how the story breaks down and call it a bunch of mularky, but I can see our country heading down this path It follows a man from Pittsburgh already has to be good , who loses his business through the nationalization act Gets arrested as he is trying to leave the country with his family and ends up in a prision camp in Utah The whole book takes place in only a 6 month time frame

    A great read and a page turner I spent two nights reading until 3 AM unable to put it down The action is brisk and unpredictable The characters are engaging and the scenario is frighteningly conceivable I am looking forward to reading the remainder of the trilogy.

    A disappointing, depressing story that was not well written or well edited The best I can say is that it had a happy ending which I desperately needed after struggling through the forty days.

  10. says:

    This is among the best books that I have read in 2017 The plot s pace is consistent, not overwhelming the author s prose is highly readable and descriptive Forty Days at Kamas is a book that makes the reader think deeply about their own experiences with bureaucracy, persecution, and the philosophical will to focus on what in their life is truly prescious their freedom.
