Makes you wonder about anyone in the presidency, especially this last, soon to be over, leaving us this mess, one. Gives a good education of other lifestyles and why we should be tolerant if not LOVING others unlike ourselves.

I need my own copy!
Well, there's $15.95 plus shipping and handling I'll never get back.

Initially, I was very excited to get my hands on this book. Reviews lauded this novel as the next 1984...and while I was of the mind that Wales could never be George Orwell, I eagerly dove into One Nation Under God expecting to be, at the very least, moderately stimulated and moved.

Unlike Wales I won't drag this on and challenge your intelligence. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. Wales portrayed the Christian Right
I liked this book very much. It sucked me in and I couldn't stop reading it.

(7-26-2009) WOW!!! What a read. I wasn't sure what I was getting into reading this book. From the moment I started reading it until I finished it a few minutes ago, I could hardly put it down. I had to force myself to do other things, including sleep. I think this book is so good at pointing out how important acceptance is. I know people that are non-believers or non-traditionalists will love the book but can't help but wonder about the others. Unfortunately, those that NEED to see the message o ...more
This was an interesting skew on the current political realm gone to the extreme. In 2004, this would have been absolutely chilling, however, time has a way of making all distopian novels dated. It is an interesting read right before the current election, since once again many righteous beliefs are once again stirred up.
