The Great Scare – Book Review

It would seem that even in the future governments are all about themselves and nothing about the people they represent.  And so this book begins with a concept that is so alarming and acceptable that one finds it easy to think it could happen.  With the twisted morals of politicians and the reporting antics of the media, civilization is destroyed.  Those left are forced to live underground, connected by a maze of tunnels throughout the country.

James and Lee, librarians from the underground city of Peopleville, are thought to know all there is to know about everything that is going on in their community because of their job/position.  When treasured objects start coming up missing they are the first that are called upon to solve the mystery.

So what do we know?  A woman’s prized possession, a family’s cat, an old man’s voice box, the pastor’s 1611 King James Bible (more than 300 years old), a family, Christmas decorations (yes, 300 years in the future), all missing.

And then, of course, there was the time machine…

All in all… well, I read the book.  I found it to have elements of deja vu… perhaps like I’d read it before with different characters…Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, The Pied Piper of Hamlen, Alice in Wonderland…

However, there was some truth to the story.  We must stop allowing ourselves to be led by everyone and everything around us.  Just saying!

Blessings to you and yours!
