it was amazing
bookshelves: jp-books

This book out of the series is probably the most boring. There's lots of political maneuvering and one big battle right at the end that really doesn't amount to much. However this book really speaks volumes to what's going on today, right now. This book was written back in the 1980s and it's almost a prediction for what Dump is doing. There are protestors being beaten and shot and then blamed for "starting riots", there's the military trying to gain control of the government and then there's Trunicht.
So if you like Dump Truffle, you'll hate this book as it specifically calls out crap like that.

21.13% "This is the part where Reuenthal goes on about how he hates ALL women because he remembers when he was JUST BORN that his mom tried to gouge out his eye. Even though some of the nursemaids saved his fucking life. This is pretty weak as an excuse."

21.51% "I think what's sort of good is that Mittermeier is like WTF towards Reuentahl, him being happily married. Though THAT relationship is a bit messed up. (He was the master of the house and she was from some other part of the family)\n\nIt's still the "This person of this gender did a thing and now ALL persons of that gender are evil" which makes no logical sense since it's men that are trying to get at him too"

52.45% ""Human beings can live just fine without any State, but States can't exist if there are no human beings." -Yang Wenli

Basically Yang put people's lives over the needs of the government and now they are pissed at him. He destroyed some high grade military hardware to end the battle quickly and save lives."

This book is true to life."

60.38% "The news reported it as "An internal squabble between members of the Edwards Committee led to bloodshed."

This is the same thing they use against BLM and other groups. Cops start shit then say it was the protestors that started it."
