I haven’t posted a book review in quite a while, so thought it was time.
First I must confess, I don’t read a lot of books by James Patterson having OD on them years ago. However, after watching an interview on Stephen Colbert, my curiosity got the better of me and I downloaded a sample. I almost always download a free sample before handing over my hard-earned cash.
What a nail-biting surprise.
Not the cover, anyone can recognize the book, guess the author to be James Patterson and that you’re getting a political thriller. But everything else was a pleasant surprise.
Don’t click away just because you may not be a Clinton fan.
Keep reading. The only bits of Bill Clinton I recognized in the book is authenticity for Presidential details and procedures.
I did not find this to be a partisan story but an American story, and a story of survival. So, set aside your skepticism, sit back and enjoy the ride.
The tale woven by Mr. Patterson is filled with suspense as he shows the frailties, limitations, and vulnerabilities of a country. He explores how much we’ve come to rely on technology and how difficult, if not impossible, life would become without it.
What would happen if, in one keyboard stroke, all internet services vanished?
Can you even begin to envision what would happen to your life?
- ATMs – banks can’t verify your account
- Retirement – what retirement account
- Medical – hospital records gone, automated machines such as oxygen, medicine, and robotic surgeries grind to a halt.
- Airports – no navigation systems, ground or air
- Water – filtration plants stop, no clean water
- Electrical – grids across the nation go dark
- Cell – towers no longer transmit
And the list goes on. Our country would be thrown back to the dark ages. This is the premise of Mr. Patterson’s book. About not only what could happen to our lives but also what steps the government would need to take to keep us safe.
I give The President is Missing 5 Stars!
