America's Last Daysby Douglas MacKinnon
Is the United States of America the nation our Founding Fathers intended it to be? Or has the government lost sight of our ideals? To some of the most powerful men and women in the country--including a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and a former Director of the FBI--the answer is growing increasingly obvious, and so is the only possible solution: The time has come to revolt. Their daring plans will not only drive a government to its knees, they will change the course of history.

AMERICA'S LAST DAYS has an excellent plot idea, that of highly qualified government employees combining their efforts to bring America to her knees because of their dislike for the liberal changes that have been made over the last several decades. The characters are well defined and believable, the writing style is easy to read but the working of the plot falls far short of anything that could hold my interest. I read the book only because it cost me about seven dollars and also in hopes of eventually finding the plot moving along. But for 61 chapters, the characters kept saying what they were going to do and never got around to doing it until chapter 62 on page 315. Then the story ended with chapter 68 on page 338. So if you feel drawn to reading this novel, I suggest reading chapters 1 through 3, then skipping to chapter 62. You won't miss out on a thing since everything in between is redundant, standard government style writing even to the point of referring to the characters by their last names.
I put the book down after it took three sentences for a character to loosen his tie and undo the top button of his shirt. The narrative and dialogue doesn't flow and descriptions are tedious. I don't like a book to be a chore to read.
