Inception: A Dystopian Thriller

(2 customer reviews)


For fans of Margaret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale

It was a normal election year. There were two top candidates, and the American people left with a choice to make: stay with the incumbent or elect the challenger, Alfred Millstone.

Charlie Cooper proudly voted for Millstone. The man had answers to all of the country’s problems, so when his choice wins, he’s thrilled, until the new president reveals his evil side as soon as he’s sworn into office. 

Millstone’s dictator-like decrees soon fly in the face of the freedom Charlie and his girlfriend, Annie, have always taken for granted. Nobody is safe from the watchful eye of Millstone’s officials. Outrageous rules are implemented, and people’s constitutional rights are violated. Those who do not follow the new rules and laws are labeled as “Defiants” and are put on disciplinary levels. Each level has stricter consequences, including criminal sentences leading up to execution.

With the Millstone administration’s power growing rapidly, freedom becomes a relic of the past. Charlie desperately struggles to save his family from a dark and deadly future he never imagined could be possible in the land of the free.

    This story really gets you thinking how quick life can change when power is used against people. The story was fast paced and intriguing to find out what happens next! The narrator was soo good and versatile.

    The story starts simple enough, then after the election and the changes that ensued I was left thinking, this story is a bit crazy and wasn’t sure to carry on. As the new changes take place and the more I carried on listening I feel the story started to come together and I was thinking, “what else is going to happen”. By the end of the story I am left thinking, wow, this is a very good and well written novel and I can’t wait for the next book.
    Definitely worth reading.
    This review is based on an audiobook free from audiobook unleashed and I wanted to give an honest review.
