The battle rages between the high-technology weapons on one side, and militia foot-soldiers on the other, devastating the cities, and overrunning the countryside.

I really liked the beginning of this book, but I felt it petered off in the end. ( )

I liked this book not so much for the action but for the heroes it portrayed, and some of the random ideas he throws out comparing the US to Rome. You might not agree with him (I'm not sure I do) but they were thought-provoking.

A number of people have written about how the US might follow the Roman Republic to a loss of democracy and turn into an empire. This is Orson Scott Card's view on how it could happen--on the beginning of the transition, anyway. It's hard to explain without giving spoilers, but let's just say that the heroes in this book wind up getting used to promote the remarkable ascendancy of someone who just might turn out to be a Caesar--and at the end of the book, we're still not sure if that's a good thing or not. The book starts out with a truly great, moral hero, a man you really admire, and then follows things from someone who was basically his sidekick, but who has to step up when things go horribly wrong.

Card tried, I think, to be somewhat balanced in this book, portraying both the left and right as threats to democracy. I'm not sure his portrayal succeeds here. Well, it succeeds at being balanced, but maybe not plausible. It makes for a pretty good story, anyway. This didn't detract much from the story. After all, you usually don't care *that* much where the bad guys came from; you mostly care where the good guys are going to. ( )

Empire — Battle rages with high-technology weapons versus militia foot-soldiers, devastating the cities, and overrunning the countryside. But the vast majority, who only want the killing to stop and the nation to return to more peaceful days, have technology, weapons and strategic geniuses of their own.

Orson Scott Cardot eddig is sokan támadták társadalmi és politikai nézetei miatt, erre írt egy könyvet ami a közeljövőben bekövetkező amerikai polgárháborúról szól. Hát, nem lett népszerűbb.

Ha a kérdés az, hogy valószínű-e egy ilyen polgárháború, akkor azt gondolom, hogy nem. Persze mindig azt érzi az ember, hogy most aztán tényleg szörnyű állapotokban van a társadalom, de sokszor volt ennél nagyobb széthúzás is, aztán mégis csak egy polgárháború volt az USA-ban. Az, hogy az alapötlet valószerűtlen, nem jelenti azt, hogy rossz a könyv persze. Ráadásul Card a könyvet 2006-ba írta, és a 2016-os választást megnézve nehéz azt mondani, hogy teljesen hülyeség amit az egyre nagyobb széthúzásról ír. Rengetegen vádolják elfogultsággal, és bár nyilván nem egyformán ír a két oldalról, valójában a könyv sokkal kevésbé elfogultabb mint amire számítottam.

A regény két igen eltérő stílust próbál ötvözni. Egyrészt van egy elgondolkodtatóbb része, politikai utalásokkal Amerikára és a Római Birodalomra, másrészt van két igen hosszú akciójelenet benne, ahol mintha kalandregényt olvasnánk. Nekem a két különböző rész nem állt össze, főleg a második akció bemutatása volt elég felesleges, sokkal szívesebben vettem volna, ha az elgondolkodtató rész hosszabb. A könyv karakterei is igen egydimenziósak voltak. ( )

I was a bit hesitant to begin this story, because of a number of negative reviews.. but I've been a fan of OSC for a long time.
While I don't think this was OSC's best work, I very much enjoyed it.
The key criticisms I'd read, said that the book was too political, and was just the author's way of expressing his views. Yes, it addressed a lot of political issues, but all the summaries and blurbs about the book made it clear that would be the case. Was it the author's way of expressing his views? Perhaps. If so, the views he expressed certainly don't belong to him alone. And there was nothing in the book that said "this is what will happen, if people don't mend their evil ways". It was portrayed as fiction, and it presents a near future scenario.
Certainly worth the time to read this. ( )
