    American War PDF EPUB ç Hardcover american free, American War KindleI struggle on this one between 3 and 4 stars On one hand it is action packed and a pretty horrifying dystopian novel On the other my suspension of disbelief was severely challenged by the timeline and the realignment of world power don't worry no spoilers The protagonist Sarat is an interesting and tragic figure but she was hard to have sympathy for at times Some of her actions were predictable not to say almost caricatural while her actions do seem realistically driven by her suffering The thing that bugged me about the book was the almost complete absence of black characters other than the protagonist and descriptions of racism Sure there is a lot about North Blue vs South Red but all the principle characters soldiers rebels survivors are white No Hispanics or Blacks I would also like to have had justification to how all the land from Texas

    American War PDF EPUB ç Hardcover american free, American War KindleI didn't understand the point of this Something huge is missing in this novel There is a hole in the center Omar El Akkad tells a story of a new American Civil War taking place around the year 2075 To paint this setting he borrows heavily from the American Civil War of 1862 1865 and he replicates and augments the Old South's long abiding sense of injustice the Lost Cause and lost way of life loyalty to family and one's people before all else real Southern values etc But we know what that is all a code for SLAVERY rich southern whites' fight to keep the institution o

    American War PDF EPUB ç Hardcover american free, American War Kindle35ish stars This is not your typical dystopia I feel like that word dystopia has developed something of a negative connotation in literature recently because of the inundation of books especially YA ones that fit into the sub genre American War is science fiction in the same way that The Road or The Handmaid's Tale are science fiction which is to say speculative than science And while this book may not be on the same level as those two it's really not that far from itThe author presents a fairly well realized future in which the US is entrenched in a second civil war While the catalyst for entering war the banning of fossil fuels this time instead of slavery isn't necessarily convincing for me the actual events of the war seem plausible EDIT 91 Upon rumination I feel there's a lot missing from the explanation and the events of the war and with the future society in general It s

    American War PDF EPUB ç Hardcover american free, American War KindleThis is a novel that hearkens back to the great days of serious and very dark future history the kind that used be common in SF before it got taken over with fluffy if dark YA that is usually a lot simple and caricature than seriousSo now we're back to the good and serious SF no light tones here and we fast forward to a history of America where its dominance in the world has sunk with a lot of its land where ecological changes have turned the deserts into blasted lands where politics has been turned upside everywhere else thanks to the tail end of the oil energy crisis and where plagues and war has ravaged America's soil A lot can happen in 7

    American War PDF EPUB ç Hardcover american free, American War KindleWhen you wade into the ever agitated waters of social media you realize just how uickly the currents of infectious bile are flowing Follow the tributaries of today’s political combat a few decades into the future and you might arrive at something as terrifying as Omar El Akkad’s debut novel “American War” Across these scarred pages rages the clash that many of us are anxiously speculating about in the Trump era a nation riven by irreconcilable ideologies alienated by entrenched suspicions But in El Akkad’s dystopian vision those differences have led once again to secession and internecine warfareThe mainspring of this imagined future clash is not race and slavery but science and the environment We learn that as climate change ravaged the Earth intelligent societies abandoned fossil fuels but the South clung to its peculiar institution and kept pumping excavating and burning As El Akkad tells it that act of rebe
