Book Review: “Clandestine” by Stella Faulkes

Book Review: “Clandestine” by Stella Faulkes

Conspiracy theorists will love this book! There are lots of acronyms in play here and twists and turns galore. Basically, the story is about a plot within a U.S. organization, CLU, and the CIA, to bring down the Venezualan government. Koshka is the head of CLU and she assigns this mission to Andy, a seasoned professional at creating discord in a country’s population. Andy and his contact in Venezuala, Joyia, have to sneak into the country and set up a base of operations. Then they need to stir up the students and the working class citizens. What they don’t know is that someone has put a hit out on Andy and the assassin will stop at nothing to take him down.

What I really liked about the book was the diversity of the characters and the way that the author developed them. The complexity of the conspiracy was also intriguing.

Who would enjoy this book: conspiracy theorists, action enthusiasts

What age group is this for: adults, maybe mature teens due to some graphic violence

Alinefromabook recommendation: Neutral – It wasn’t exceptional but it was not bad either.

Happy Reading!

Book Review:”Stupidparty Math v. Myth: Unmasking the Destructive Forces Eroding American Democracy” by Patrick Andendall

Book Review:”Stupidparty Math v. Myth: Unmasking the Destructive Forces Eroding American Democracy” by Patrick Andendall

Political party bashing at its best! If you want a breakdown of all that is wrong with the Republican Party, than this is the book for you. Patrick Andendall is a disillusioned Republican who has written this book as a way of exposing all the ways that the Republicans are showing their stupidity. While I do not consider myself a Republican, and have many criticisms of the party, I nevertheless found this book to be a bit much. For one, I have never been a fan of name calling, though it seems to be the norm in politics, so the constant repetition of Stupidparty began to wear on my nerves after a while. That being said, the author has thoroughly researched his topic and has broken his argument down into well-organized topics. There are lots and lots of quotes, cartoons, and graphics to further support his arguments. I appreciate the work that went into this, and would have to say that I think the author is right in his views, but this is definitely a book for someone who is more of a political junkie than I am.

Happy Reading!
