I received this book free from Preston Fleming in exchange for an honest review The premise of the book was intriguing a workprison camp in the future in a dystopian society The story unfolds with the simultaneous stories of a male prisoner and a female child father and daughter They both deal with their own problems and hope to be reunited with each other eventuallyThe main portion of the book is taken up with the revolution going on in the camp The political prisoners have had enough of the brutality and they rise up I enjoyed how the author described the bleakness and despair amongst the prisoners and I feel that he appropriately captured the emotion and futility However I did feel that the actual revolution and fighting went on way too long The prisoners went on strike a few times before seizing control of the camp and for me this seemed an arduous part of the book At times it seemed the labor talks went on forever and I grew weary hoping for action and less bargaining Each chapter starts out with a uote relating to laborpoliticsunrest from leaders such as Lenin Trotsky Idi Amin soviet camp doctors and authors such as George Orwell The uote directly reflects the action that is going to take place in that chapter and I thought it was very uniue to have the foreshadowing told in that manner Towards the end of the book the main character has an out of body experience that provides the reader with a birds eye view of the action taking place down below The author also utilizes this in the first chapter where it worked well The portion at the end of the story seemed out of place and a bit confusing; at times I wondered if he was still floating above or if he was back in Earth watching the action Finally when he returns back to his body it all makes sense but I feel there could've been a better way to convey this by the authorIn summary good plot great idea but I didn't feel much of a connection with the characters I would have enjoyed this book if it was about 70 pages shorter That being said I do have to commend the author for having an easy writing style His sentences were flowing he described his characters well and the story did have a good air of suspense at times His knowledge of political unrest and union bargaining was comprehensive and I know those readers who have an affinity for that kind of thing will enjoy this story immensely
