Gotta say I loved this. At times I found it convoluted and had to be careful, as it was easy to lose some the thread of some of the topics, but I did really enjoy this book. I love the whole conspiracy theory genre and this book delivered beautifully!

I also enjoyed that a very wide array of topics were covered. It was eye opening to me to see that indeed other people were asking some of the same questions that I asked myself! Do I totally buy the whole conspiracy thing? No. But I also don't not buy into it. I guess I feel that when you don't give a straight from the hip answer I feel there's something more that you know, but don't want to share. At the same time I wonder about people who make decisions based on what's best for me... Is it really?

Having said all that I highly recommend this book. It's fun and you might just find out some things you didn't know!

Wow. Just wow. I have to say that I did enjoy this... It was action packed and full of plot twists and turns. It didn't let up for a minute. Sometimes it even seemed to move a little too fast, (if that's possible!)

The main character is a tortured soul who really doesn't seem to believe in much of anything. But after being drawn into a web of intrigue he is able to find some peace that seems to be eluding him. At times it got a little confusing, there were so many players and everyone was after the same thing. I was also a little disappointed that certain topics that were brought up weren't explored more deeply. But that was just because I was interested in how he would tie some elements into the plot. At times I found it a little over the top with all the different plots and sub plots, but again, that's just me.

A really good seamless job of drawing many different elements into the tale, and making you realize that it's not all that far fetched we could end up in a world like the one in this book.

Great book for some thrills and chills.

...Messages by John Michael Hileman.  Loving it!  But just read something that I'm thinking is a nod to David Lynch and his amazing series Twin Peaks.  Or maybe not, who know???
