The all seeing eye
Knows all that we do
But, there is no outcry
For it hears all our words, too
I read this book right after finishing "The Overton Window" - which scared the crap out of me. I wasn't sure I wanted to continue the story after finishing the first one, but I'm glad I did. "The Eye of Moloch" is better written, a faster read, more deeply scary, and ultimately more hopeful (I sure needed that!).

Do I recommend this? Well, yes & no, but you're the only one to decide which side of the advice you should follow.

Are you easily scared by current events? Do you believe in deep cons

It's a novel that will keep you thinking long after you've finished reading it.

As with Glenn Beck's other fiction books there are two ways of viewing The Eye of Moloch.

One way is simply that it is fiction, the other is, as Glenn calls it "faction".

First from the fiction perspective, it is a fast paced thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It's essentially set in the present, but in a somewhat dystopian view of the present. The government has eyes and ears everywhere. Evil men run a shadow government that controls everything. We see the mighty clash of ideolog
The Founders Keepers, introduced in The Overton Window, are back in action. Will they prevail in exposing the plans for the destruction of America as we know it? Or will their plans go up in smoke? Well if I wanted to write a spoiler I would tell you, and I don't do that, so I guess you will just have to read the book to find out. Overall well written it seemed a bit thinner than its predecessor. Also a bit of a problem was just jumping into where the previous book left off. I don't like it much ...more
The sequel to "Overton Window" delivers on chills and thrills and a few eyebrow-raising escapes. The latest installment (I feel a third book coming on...) of "faction" leaves one a little stunned though. Remember when you watched the old James Bond films, and you thought it was so cool that he had all the gadgets and gizmos? The contemporary Bond films (The Daniel Craig films excepted) fell flat after a while because it was no longer unbelievable that a person had those gadgets and gizmos--indee ...more
This was an intense conspiracy book. Beck does a good job of avoiding directly pointing fingers at Obama and the US government, and instead uses George Soros wannabees, big mega-billionaires that have their fingers in everything - government, education, politics, history, commerce, business, etc. A couple of months ago the premise of the government in collusion with the giant money guys spying on EVERYONE via emails, internet, credit card purchases, drones, schools,libraries, etc. etc. wo ...more
Glenn Beck's new thriller, "The Eye of Moloch", started off really well and remained exciting all the way through. The authors hit their stride with this one. I was OK with "The Overton Window" but this one is better.

The Story: In Overton Window (as I recall) Molly Ross was leading a band called the Founder's Keepers, a group of patriots who have discovered a shadow government of individuals manipulating the system in order to replace it with something more suitable to them. "The Eye of Moloch"

Every now and again I look through bookselling websites to see the latest releases as well as upcoming releases. I enjoy reading the minute information shared about what the novel is about, and if possible, some reviews. There can be with some novels a chasm between those who loved the story and on the other end those who hated it. Now, it isn’t like that with all novels, even with some being written by t

Glenn, Glenn, Glenn. I love you dearly, I really do, but you write terrible fiction books! This book is worse than the Overton Window which wasn't great either, but you could at least follow the plot. This one seemed to be more interested in following the "george soros" character. I didn't really feel like you explained much about the Eye of Moloch, although I knew what it was from following your show. The flow from chapter to chapter was jumpy and the entire book seemed like it had been written ...more

Listened to on CD. This is the sequel to Overton Window. I haven't read Overton for several years and this picks up right where it leaves off. I was a little lost in the beginning, but got up a few chapters in with a recap. It was a little slow to start but actually picks up and has a great climax and end. If you liked Overton, you will like this.

This is the sequel to the Overton Window. The story picks up the trail of Molly Ross. She is a young patriot who exposed an undercover war for the fate of America. She has been labeled a traitor and is being hunted down. During the chase to capture her, she is blinded. Her lack of sight hinders her leadership of her small band of patriots. With out much outside support she and her group take a stand against the financial warlords attempting to control the fate of the US. This is not the best thr ...more

I read this without reading The Overton Window.

American patriots struggle to survive while attempting to non-violently fight the loss of freedom.

I didn't feel like I missed anything by not reading the first book. The writing largely avoids repetitions and wandering details. I appreciate that a story which presents the Christian faith as a good thing also shows life as it is - kindness, honor, crudity, and violence alike - without devolving into sentiment, platitudes, or sermons. I especially lik
Really enjoyed this book once I got a little bit into it. At the beginning I had a hard time getting back into it and some parts seemed a little confusing with the way you were thrown right back into the action not quiet where it left off in the last book, but once I got past that I really liked it. The ending seemed a bit rushed and with as much as the characters seemed to be running from "the man", the ending didn't convey the same feeling. It was almost like they weren't worried at all about ...more
I enjoyed this book much more than Beck's introduction book, The Overton Window. This is a sequel and is much more interesting and has a much better plot and story line. Both of Beck's books are full of political information and situations that could at some point be quite relavent to our country's situation and future. Lots of "futuristic" stuff, but Glenn does a very good job of documenting his books which leads one to start believing there is something more to these books than just interestin ...more

I was hoping to give this a higher rating given that I love just about anything from Beck.

However, this book was slow in the beginning and would slow down in other parts. What did not help was that fact that it came out a number of years after THE OVERTON WINDOW, so I had a vague, if really no, recollection of the events in that OVERTON book, which left me confused at times.

Despite the flaws, some of my own doing, the message is perfect. This 'series' of a near future America is both shocking

Fabulous sequel to The Overton Window. Same characters and new ones introduced.

A quick read, I finished this book very quickly, couldn't wait to see what is up for this wonderful nation of ours. I hope people start paying attention really soon.

Thank you, Glenn, you did it again!!!
This book was significantly better than its predecessor, The Overton Window. The characters were more fleshed out and the plot flowed better. It's a novel of the extremely near future and I fear that it may quickly become dated as a result. That is assuming that the events do not come to pass. Some of the events and things in the book may seem far-fetched, but there is an afterword that lists what already exists and what was taken from the headlines (or the well-hidden back pages). The afterword ...more
Pretty fun political thriller from Glenn Beck, whose work is my guilty pleasure. He is not the best writer of fiction (to say the least), but this story was interesting and fast-paced. What Glenn Beck is great at doing is connecting seemingly disparate events and individuals into a paranoid mosaic, then making it seem like their synergy is completely obvious. The scary thing is, sometimes he's right! In any event, this was the second book in this series, and I'll certainly read the third. I have ...more
Good thriller. And eerily analogous to current events today. Thing is, you know this book has been in the works for at least the past year or two. Either Beck is some sort of seer or he is so informed and in tune to the workings of this government and what they will attempt to do it's scary. I go with the latter. Beck knows what our government is capable of, and the manipulative people behind the scenes who want to transform the United States. Who'd have thought many of the elements in this "fac ...more
Less a novel for entertainment as it is libertarian propaganda, Eye of Moloch is Glenn Beck's latest underwhelming attempt at "faction" as he likes to call it. Imagine Al Gore writing a thriller about the fight against global warming. If you're a die-hard liberal you might like that sort of thing... otherwise, it's gonna make you throw up in your mouth a little.

The novel started off promisingly enough, with a violent ambush scene and the heroes being threatened by a rather nasty white supremacis

Very well done. It started off a little slow for me, though. I wanted Beck to just get to the story. It just seemed it was a bit overwritten, if you know what I mean. There could have been less filler and more meat. Don't get me wrong. I still believe this was a great read and even though it's fiction it's all based on fact. Almost ripped from the headlines. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who loves some good fiction. I give it a solid 4 stars!

The sequel to the Overton Window was good. It seemed to move at a faster pace, while remaining just as alarming and scary. I was a little disappointed with the ending, but not surprised. In order to make it realistic, there really wasn't another way it could have gone. An eerie reminder for all of us to be aware and intelligent about not only what is going on in the world around us, but why.
Christian Orr
Action-packed, engrossing, thought-provoking, timely, and frighteningly true-to-life for a fiction piece--a must read for anyone who still believes in American free-market freedoms and civil liberties. Love this line on p.223: "And once you've seen the devil, son, trust me, it really helps if you believe in God." Hope there's gonna be a third book in the series so there's a chance to see Arthur Doyle finally get what he deserves!
Debbie Williams
This is an interestin gbook in that it addresses the current world events. The theory is that all corruption is linked to the government and set up by them. It is scary to think that it could actually have more truth to it than anybody would like to admit. Complicated plot at the beginning. It jumped around so much it was hard to tell who was white and who was black (as in ideas, not race). The intent was to save the American freedoms fought for by our founding fathers and restore Christian idea ...more
Who told this man he could write?

"The short skinny one in the lead he recognized, and if there'd been any remaining whim of a peaceful conclusion to this unholy summit, with this man's arrival that glimmer was gone."

ach! 400+ pages of that level of writing...
This and The Overton Window are both... I dunno... just kinda there. It's a decent enough book, with enough doses of reality to scare you, but... it just feels like it's trying so hard to be Tom Clancy, but misses wide.

If you're a Glenn Beck fan, you'll read it. If you're not a fan, you won't (because you've already read "Overton" and mocked him for it). But I doubt anybody will pick it up 5-10 years from now and say, "wow - that was an amazing book" or "it was ahead of its time" or even "its he
I didn't like this book so much until I got to the end. I hated the dragged out plot. I hated Molly's circumstances. It took me forever to finish this book. But there were some highlights to this book that kept me in the game. The introductions of Virginia Ward and old man Doyle. I am looking forward to the next book to see where Mr Doyle and Noah go next on their collision coarse. I like where Virginia ends up as well. I'm trying not to spoil the book here but let's just say, it was worth muddl ...more
