Don't worry, you are going to love the entire book.

Matt has gone to great lengths, and in a very natural way in the story, to show that there are good people working within the system as well.

The rogue players are the really bad guys in this book...and they are abetted by the politicians who are seeking to turn every event towards their good instead of towards the good of the people they were elected to serve...thus they too become domestic enemies. In addition, there's the "go along to get along" crowd, who also end up being pawns of the rogues and pols.

The book is so good at showing the dangerous trends and how they could be used by those seeking to play both ends off against each other for their own benefit.

In the end...all tyrants do this type of thing.

EFOD gives us a clear message that... 1) There are those who will take advantage of the pols and the apathetic...and 2) There are those who fight to retain their liberty at all costs, in the face of all of the others.

GREAT JOB MATT!

I've got mine and am lending it out as quick as I can and to as many people as I can...who are going to buy it and do the same.

I thought we should try and keep the discussion on one thread.

therut is just excited about Travis McGee's new book she is reading and is looking to discuss it here on FR.

Read on. There's a link to the site using the book cover in the posts.

It's a great read, and I believe any one who cherishes their liberty and their RTKABA will love it...particularly given your FMCDH trailer on your posts.

Congratulations to Matt on what will surely become a best seller. I read the excerpts on the Internet and in the process rode the roller coaster of emotions from being downright ticked at the current state of affairs in this country to elation that at least one person other than myself can see what just might happen.

Again Congratulations Matt, I hope you make a million ... Dollars that is!

Thanks for that kind word, but I'll just nudge things back over to talking about Matt here.

He's written a blockbuster thriller about the 2nd amendment and our current times and I recommend it to anyone.

Best Fregards.

Thanks...I believe Matt is going to have thousands of folks like therut pretty soon...and I hope I am underestimating it.

His book deserves as wide an exposure as it can get. The more people who read it, enjoy it...and then think about it, the better IMHO.

Best Fregards.

Jeff

Don't tell any guys, but there's lot of "chick stuff" in the book. Just ask Donna. (I have 8 sisters, 7 older sisters, so I had a great education in female psychology growing up.)

Well I did it...
I started reading in short spurts way ahead of my planned reading schedule. (My "honey do" list is unfinished)

Now, I'm worried.......
Think I'll take down my FR profile page, change my user I.D. frequently, start paying cash for everything, change cars annually, go to gun shows in disguise, create an alternate I.D.and make NO NEW FRIENDS!

Already looks like a fast and interesting read...
I'll be really pi$$ed if the "end" is revealed in the forum before I get finished.

I don't plan to change my ID. The more of "us" there are, and the more "they" know about us, the better. It might just keep "them" from doing something really stupid, like banning all semis. As much as anything else, this book is a shot across their bow, a stark warning.

Great book. I got in last Saturday, picked it up, and already finished it.

Any sequel in the works?

Without giving out spoilers, the main character who made it returns to the USA and everything gets a lot worse. A lot of the action will take place in New Mexico during a time of struggle Kosovo style.
