Communism achieved one thing: to not be judged like the nazis and jet they killed more people and produce more horror that socialist party.
This book unveils this truth like few ever will, and few will want to believe that such evil was committed in the name of socialism and Communism, it is too inconvenient a truth for the leftist of the world, their main excuse is that they never had true communism, well thank F... for that, I can not imagine more horror than was produce trying to achieve it.
Usually, a book like this one takes me a bit more than a week to finish but it took two months, the horror was so devastating and consistent I could not take it; it is of such profundity that you feel sick in your heart that humans did this to other humans is believable but not comprehensible.
Please read it and learn the truth of what Communism has recreated several times, eliminating millions of PEOPLE in the name of progress the left and its inteligencia has allowed this to happen all over the world but have never truly criticized this history and always defend it because they see them selfs as superior to the humanity they want to control at any cost.

Yes, it close to the TV plot, but some of the elements are different the humour is not as important in the book and the social aspects of the characters are more evident in the book; as usual a book gives you more background, and it explains some of the events better, plus at I can create my cast and not worry about BBC quotas of inclusion and let the characters be what they are in the book.

Entertaining conspiracy with usual King flavour

Very entertaining with the usual children at peril and supernatural forces taking shape in the middle of nowhere.
Good plot, cold war memories made topical and some likeable characters.
This is the book that will make a good movie.

Interesting, topical but not useful as intended

The information is all very interesting and very up to date but implementing these ideas in your everyday life would require knowing an awful lot of the stranger you encounter, making them no longer strangers.
Like some of the assumptions of interrogations and the different motivations or psychology each person brings to the table questioning a family man, or a terrorist can not be the same even among terrorist, motivations may change depending on the belief of the individual or the psychopathy.
In the first case at the start of the book, two individuals encounter each other with rigid points of view and of all the factors race was the least problematic; training, mental disposition and miss information had more of an entangling for the individuals they both were following a path that had very narrow outcomes if one had given a little bit the problem would have been defused. The end would have been nothing but a stop.
A good explanation of how we get things wrong with strangers but not an answer as to how it can be resolved.

A movie script sold as a book.

Not a great plot but entertaining enough, maybe the movie will be better.
Some gore and violence with bunch of adults no one would care because they are not nice people or people you would enjoy as company.

And a madness that it is explained with logic

We live on a time that is ready to explode, uncertainty everywhere, political instability with Trump in one corner and Putin on the other, miss information is the name of the game and the crowds would rather belive a fantastic conspiracy than the reality of facts those are boring and not what they want to hear.

Enter the western left with an entire stew of illogical ideas for the masses, while terrorist and fundamentalists debate and ponder ways to destroy our civilisation we argue their right to do it from the most narrow of perspectives and illogical guilt for not being the down out, because being white is been guilty and if you are a man of that race even worse (no I am not white European) of course I will be accused of collaboration.

We spent year defending women's rights and had advancements that we all appreciate, but it is no advancement to become man-haters or relinquished your rights to gender self-defined people, that is a snake eating its tail. What is wrong with respecting each other without the need for obliterating someone.
Douglas Murray explains these much better than I and exposes the stupidity and the danger that all these exaggerations produce in our societies.
It is an organised look at the madness of that wants to destroy the western world.

Gender-neutral pronouns are very confusing when speaking of singular as a plural especially when the character is a digital creation or an it, yes it is sexualized as a female for a storyline in a game if it had been a transgender character it would be more understandable; any way it ruined the flow of the story for a stupid reason.

To be a mother in the worst moment, you must believe you must have a desperate hope. To start a book at the end of a world with a birth is just as hopeful, but to carry it out is a similar achievement, with prose that is beautiful and poetic, delicate and sad like loving a human that is your creation.
A beautiful little gem that stays with you and impacts more than the word count could tell.
