Resurrection America by Jeff Gunhus is one of those thought provoking books that will stick in your mind, driving you to think…What IF?
Cover by Extended Imagery
We have been invaded. Be afraid…be very afraid.
At first, I was a bit confused, because I didn’t read the blurb, just saw Jeff Gunhus and knew I wanted to read it. This is horror of the human kind.
Resurrection America by Jeff Gunhus begins when Rick goes to the mine to check on Manny, who was unresponsive on the radio. He ran into an electrified fence that wasn’t supposed to be there. Something smells rotten to me!
Rick carries a lot of baggage from his time spent as a marine in Iraq. His feelings of guilt weigh him down and his emotions create tough times and difficult relationships.He will need all his skills as sheriff.
Resurrection America is one of those books that rings so true, it will stick with me for a long time and it terrifies me of what a government, who is supposed to take care of its people, is capable of doing.
Keefer…well, right now the jury is still out. Is he a good guy? A bad guy? Is he a rogue? A terrorist?
I read the part about the mine shaft and my jaw dropped open as I thought WTF, Jeff! The evil and horror oozes off my Kindle and I thought I’d have to wipe it to down to continue reading.
Funny how someone is quick to sacrifice a life…as long as it isn’t his.
The future is in technology. What if one person had control of all of it? We have seen proof of the danger involved, in our current lives. Jeff hit so many buttons, so much that could come true…couldn’t it?…with the levels of greed, secrecy, conspiracy and megalomania going on today. We should be leery, fearful and INFORMED. Seek out the truth for yourself. Be vigilant.
We definitely live in interesting times.
The ending…WOW, Jeff. You have a way of surprising me, right to the very end.
So thought provoking, I will be thinking of this for a very long time.
