President Woodrow Wilson once wrote, "Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture ing], are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." Wilson]

Started of as a reasonably promising conspiracy thriller, but then the writer got more involved in expounding the detail of the conspiracy, at the expense of plot, and his attempts to use a wide range of vocabulary, not necessarily accurately, became distracting.
How could you not love a book that includes references from other great works, such as 1984 and Of Mice and Men? I also appreciated that the story did not get muddled up with a romance that most fiction feels the need to put into every chapter.
The writing style is pedantic and stilted. The story might be good but I skipped vast portions of it - especially all of the quoted speeches from presidents' past and even the preamble to the constitution. At 99 cents for kindle it is too much.
Intriguing story concept and some good writing. Not quite a 'page turner', but definitely an enjoyable read! And I must admit that it feels good to read a book in one week after spending so long on Les Mis!!
I think I liked it, but it did get bogged down at times. The beginning caught me, but it got a little long.
