The Quest for Truth is book two in the Paranoia trilogy by Jonathan-David Jackson. Oscar Well, having narrowly survived the hostile Red Fist takeover of his town and state through shear luck and paranoid overreaction, is hiding out with his new best friend, Hodge, and his new girlfriend, Penelope. But they cannot hide forever. Red Fist is searching for them. In fact, they could be watching right now.

The Quest for Truth was every bit as funny as its predecessor. I had many laugh out loud moments and quite a few snorts. However, the story lagged just a bit here and there. In the main, this seemed to me to be because a bit too much time was spent on the protagonist waffling between hiding and fighting. Doubtless this is realistic, but it's not terribly fun reading. Overall, still a good read though, and I look forward to the third book.

Goodreads Librari...: How do I add a book to a series? 4 27 Aug 08, 2014 12:27PM  
Jonathan-David Jackson was born in Gastonia, North Carolina, at 3 in the morning on May 14, 1987. At first, he could not walk, talk, or indeed use the toilet. After a year of intensive training in NC, he moved his family to Kingsport, Tennessee, where he finally overcame those early disabilities.
