Overview

George Orwell's chilling classic 1984 alerted his generation to a vision of a futuristic world under Stalinistic Communism. Many called his masterpiece a wake-up call to the human horrors of the Soviet system of government. Orwell's classic political novel tore down the curtain, revealing the lies and false promises of Communism's so-called worker's paradise. The Silence of Them is also the story of a society gone horribly wrong and one man's struggle to understand why. Historian John Lewis challenges the political intellect of his readers to recognize the human costs of the fracturing of nations and the growing political and economic status of the trans-national corporations who answer to no one. Lewis takes today's headlines and projects them into the near future with terrifying results. The Silence of Them becomes a powerful cautionary tale of what if? A harrowing story of one man's experience as he finds himself caught in a tragic political cauldron. In this unusually-written but compelling saga, a brilliant New Age society with the best of intentions achieves the worst of all results. If you live to read a thousand books, you will never forget this one. Ron Giordano Los Angeles Times
