Wow! I went into this book with low expectations. Really would you expect ANYTHING good from a Fiction book written by Glenn Beck? I only picked it up because I like the title as I had read other items on the concept of the Overton Window.

This story follows Noah Gardner, the heir apparent of a super powerful "Marketing firm" used by the global elite to swing thing in their direction and his short lived love affair with the new mail girl, a "patriot" in some sort of Tea Party movement.

Molly the patriot girl has an elaborate story, and a family, and a love interest who appears to be this universe's Alex Jones. They convenience Noah to break into his father's business to get more data on a coming false flag.

Or did they? Was it all a trick, are these patriot wack jobs trying to frame him?

While from a guy who invited the idea of a "9/12" group about "how we all loved America right after 9/11" I had heard Beck had been trying to steal some of the audience of Alex Jones, but I didn't realize how far down the rabbit hole he had gone.

But the deception in this book is on all sides. The sexual tension is much more than I would expect from a Mormon, and all in all I cannot recommend this enough, regardless of where you are on the political spectrum, but certainly if you have had any ongoing with the "patriot" movement in your life, you'll get a kick out of this, and I suspect the lefty hippies will too.

This was better than I thought it would be. It was a little heavy-handed at times, and there were a few things I was confused about. But overall a good thriller. I especially loved the concept of the Overton Window, which is basically ( I hope I don't slaughter this too bad) the window of truths the general population are willing to accept at any given time. Depending on who you are and your motivations, the goal is to push the boundaries of this window. I liked how the book itself (as with most any other) is a type of Overton Window in that it pushes us a little further to expand this window. I know this is a thriller, but I think that's why I love the Dystopian genre so much. If we can (in at least part of our minds) accept a fictional, crazy future, we will be better prepared to handle a reality that will probably be far less extreme. ( )

Uma conspiração contra os EUA vem sendo preparada há cem anos, e agora está prestes a ser colocada em prática. Alguém será capaz de impedi-la? E se as pessoas descobrissem que tudo em que elas acreditam não passa de uma grande farsa? Que as roupas que vestem todos os dias pela manhã, assim como os carros que dirigem não são escolhas suas? Que o governante eleito na última eleição para comandar a cidade e o país também não depende delas? ( )

Easy read, plausible, and based on actual documents or suggested by evidence.

Suffice to say that, the subtitle notwithstanding, there is nothing even remotely thrilling about this didactic, discursive — sporadically incoherent — novel. The image of a train wreck comes quickly to mind, though this book actually has more the character — and all of the excitement — of a lurching, low-speed derailment halfway out of the station.
 
Anyone who has tuned in to Beck's show knows that he is sometimes joined on-screen by best-selling thriller writers such as Vince Flynn and James Rollins. In his foreword, Beck notes his love of the genre and acknowledges that "the goal of most thrillers is to entertain." Sadly, he seems to have learned little from his thriller-writing friends.
