Wow. This book was devastating. It’s almost exactly like my Liberty Box trilogy–eerily so–except that it’s real life, and it doesn’t end happy, not truly. I’m all about happy endings, so I kept hanging on, hoping for that (particularly because the title, and the fact that the book exists, gives away the fact that he makes it out). But it’s still worth reading/listening to because it’s so eye-opening. The dystopian genre is so popular in fiction, that it’s startling to realize that a real dystopian regime (at least one) exists right now.
My rating: *****
