A national guard unit is formed in a maximum security prison. The unit sees combat. Very interesting story.

penny walrath

Super good read!the ending was disappointing, but this books sure gives us something to really think about.


Donna Marie Ruru

I totally loved this book it is a pity that it was fictitious, i would've liked to see the prison system adopt the authors vision of rehabilitation of criminals in my life time. Fantastic concept that might work some day


Jim Verdugo

I quit after about 50 pages. An interesting concept based on pie in the sky human behavior. As for reading about army stuff, I am an old Navy Air man. More books like Red October would hit the spot.JL


Jack Burston

The story is not believable. A 22-year old convict General? I quit ready after that.


Bob Wastle

Somewhat disjointed, but a compelling read.


Grace

I enjoyed this book and it did suggest some interesting prospects, but I did find multiple grammar mistakes without looking.


norman lee

A good read,the author knows the prison & military systems,


Jan Adams

Good read, and food for thought


web

a very well writen book and good story


Mike Fogg

I liked this book. It was a little far fetched, but its fiction so I guess it OK. Other than the editing, it was a really good read.


Herman Brits

This book was excellent!


lloyd bonner

awesome story. couldnt put it down.


Timothy French

Pure bafflegab. Please stop referring to the U.S. as "America".


Harry Nielsen

The story line got to unbelievable and the nonsensical demonizing of Moslems ruins the book.


Tony Barker

Good book but last few pages missing


peter moran

Not a bad read,gives food for thought about the prison system as a whole


Rob Gill

This was a great read and would sort out allot of prisons overcrowding


david knapp

A good read that took a concept and ran with it well giving good lateral thought to the matter. Reasoned arguments were used as a basis to extend the concept to make this an enjoyable and thought provoking read. I enjoyed it and who's to say it could not become a true!


bede

I liked the author's insights. The plot and the characters sure did make me read on. Worthy of sharing to my friends and colleagues!


Peter Abraham

Nice original plot - a sort of practical utopia!


Bryan

Excellent book well worth reading and i agree with the authors comments about the penal system.


David

A lot military details weren't right (see other comments), the military conflicts are so unrealistic it is beyond belief, what is written about Islam is just about as unaccurate and simplistic as it gets and the carreer of the main character Adam is so wild that even the author's trick in the last chapter doesn't save it. Sound like a bad book? Well, it isn't. It is written fairly, the "tools" of a writer (e.g. building the arc suspense) are being used OK. But that is not what makes the book worthwhile; what does is that it contains some very interesting and clever thoughts and ideas about what's wrong with the penal system and what could be done to fix it, not just in the U.S., but anywhere in the world. I don't think that everything could be done in the "real" world the way the author writes it, but if even a fraction was done it would make the system better, lowering the recividism rate. And more: this book about penal reform, while highly political, is neither the usual left-wing do-gooder drivel nor right-wing criminally insane "shoot'em up" bull. It is plain middle-of-the-road common sense. Do read, just ignore the bits the author messed up.


Gerry Martin

Too far fetcher. Age for rank etc. Not very convincing for an ex military reader.


Ravi

All Muslims are not killers and I am a Christian.


Erika Barkhuizen

Loved it. Got taken in with the plot. Decided to never read the last chapter because it spoiled the warm feeling I had whilst reading it


Andre Whelpton

Excellent reading, enjoyed it thoroughly


John

Not in the slightest interesting, best left to collect dust


Doug Clark

A very interesting concept. Making a super-hero of the main character gives a lot of scope to the development of the story.


Anna Kovacic

So far it's very interesting read. Thank you.


cntrywmn2000

Interesting - a good read.


johnn

an excellent book thoroughly enjoyed it


shadow754

I to, enjoyed this book, it is fiction after all, so attention to detail is not that important. I would certainly recommend it.


kent

I enjoyed this book, it is not poorly written, as the other review suggest. It has a little bit of a slow start, and is not a highly suspenseful book. It is a very enjoyable book, with plenty of qualities that make it definitely worth the time.


jack

It is an interesting plot. However, it is very badly written. Also, the author does not seem to have much knowledge of the military. In the units first action in Columbia, he has a soldier coming to the rescue of Adams grabbing an "M-16 and a belt of ammo." The M-16 does not fire a belt, it fires a clip. Also, the military is not going to use a semi auto AR 15. This is the civilian version of the M 16. Glad I did not pay any money for this story.
