5.0 von 5 Sternen Can the people running Governments Really be this Evil? 15. September 2011
Von Stephen C. Lovely - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This short story made my head spin. It takes place some time in the future, when economic and social conditions in the USA and Great Britain have deteriorated a great deal from the current time. There were some truly nasty things implied (or at least that I inferred) about the powers and people running the two respective governments. There was a quick reference to Hitler, which I believe was there to get you in the right frame of mind to see what the author was implying. Last but not least there was the most heinous use of a kindle that I can image, or at least that's what I inferred. This is a story with layers and implications to keep you thinking far after the time you have finished the story. I wish it was longer, and I really don't like what I think was about to happen when the story ended, but then I think that is the whole point of the story.

If you like a good conspiracy, read this one.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Unfinished story 5. Februar 2013
Von nitsua27 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I didn't care for the profanity, but got into the story line early. I enjoyed the adventure, but just as I was getting into it, it ended. This is more of a "suck you in book with no ending". This is why I gave it a low rating.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well written enjoyable and suspenseful tale 25. Februar 2013
Von Israel Drazin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed this free amazon kindle tale so much that I ordered another free short story by Declan Conner. It is good to lay aside non-fiction and philosophical books that fill most of my day and turn to a well-written suspenseful short story written with humor. This story tells of a time in the near future when England's election for prime minister results in the election of a leader who is anti-USA. He has joined with Afghanistan, the Taliban, Pakistan, and other nations to despoil Afghanistan and use the money attained to help pay England's debts and rebuild his debt-ridden country. The US is greatly in debt itself and it seems that "lunatics are running the asylum." What will the US president do to save her country?

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good Short Story 10. Dezember 2012
Von Christine Parker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is one of those books that makes to think, could this really happen? It is sort of scary if it would actually take place. It is well written and leaves you with a cliff hanger but not for a sequel, a more of food for thought cliff hanger.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting premise, but with rough edges 3. Juni 2013
Von morehumanthanhuman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a story, set in the near future, about plots at the top levels of government to keep the U.S. and British forces in Afghanistan. While we should all, at this point, be aware that our leaders don't always do their due dilligence or tell the truth before putting troops at risk (see the excellent 500 Days: Secrets and Lies in the Terror Wars or Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War if you need more proof of this), there were several elements of this story that I felt strained the suspension of disbelief necessary to be involved in a fictional story.

The action of the story begins when an election in Britain places the U.S./British alliance in jeopardy. The story begins from the POV of the president's economic advisor, but quickly changes to a more omniscient POV. While I have no trouble believing that a U.S. president would behave poorly, the behavior attributed to the president in this story really defies belief, as does how she presents herself (Who would lead in with a "As Hitler would say . . ."? Nobody, but nobody, besides National Socialists just quotes Hitler like that). There are actions attributed to various players that just don't ring true and the final outcome of the story also seems a bit far-fetched.

Aside from the believability issues, there are some technical issues in the story that are distracting. Punctuation is very touch-and-go. Many terms that are usually capitalized are in lower case. It is a relatively minor issue, but I found it just another distraction in a tale that was already fighting an uphill battle for plausibility in my mind.
