Beware Sleeping Dragons
« on: June 03, 2016, 01:42:40 am »

A book by TJ Reeder.

http://www.amazon.com/Beware-Sleeping-Dragons-TJ-Reeder/dp/1523671831/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1464934785&sr=8-9&keywords=Sleeping+dragon

What would happen if someone at any level of the government made the wrong No-Knock raid? What if it turned out to be a wrong address? It happened in real life before, it's probably happening as you read this. A lot of people, usually go to bed with a gun nearby, die because no one announced that the cops were the cops and the homeowners are usually out-numbered. What if it happened to your wife and you gotten a multi-million dollar "settlement"? One man did something, shall we say, something constructive, or I should rather say destructive about it. Taking a war to those who holds the Constitution in not favorable terms.

When I started the book, it's told in a first (very first) person narrative. At first I thought it was in the form of a journalistic style. Much like "I did this, then I did that, with several variations. If you decide to try the book, stick with it, it'll get better once you get used to the "flow".

I do admit that the writing style is not for everyone. It is a change of pace from what most people are used to.

You may be aware of some holes in the story as you read. I don't think they're all that big and there aren't that many of them. Not enough to detract from the story. As a matter of fact, all the "actions" as it were, are pretty realistic in my views. This is not an action movie book.

As I said, it's not for everyone but if you prefer your freedom novels with a dose of reality, then this may be a book for you.

Generally, it's not a great book, but it is a good book to pick through.

I had gotten the cheaper kindle copy so I might've felt better not having spent a lot for a copy.

Bill

The story doesn't really hit its stride until a few chapters in, so the preview may not be enough.
