    Total Trash - Poor writing

    For the record - the only reason to read "The Turner Diaries" is as an historical insight into Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing.

    This is nothing but a fantassy of a ranting racist biggot. Everything is a Jewish conspiracy in the government! What a bunch of crap!

    So is there any reason to read this? Yes, because if one does not know what poison there is, one can not develope an antidote!

    Very Poor.

    This book is sadly nothing more than race hatred bigotry. I can think of nothing in it that justifies the horrid act described within. Bombings, shootings, executions of wayward members of the 'Organization'. No intelligent adult could take the premise seriously. We are all one race, a human race.

    Don't bother

    As stated in another review, this book is very poorly written. I get the whole social commentary thing, but in the end it's just a bunch of bigoted, race hatred, wrapped in an antigovernment wrapper. There are no new ideas and no original concepts. 20 pages in you have already read the chapter that more than likely inspired the Oklahoma City bombing; you might as well stop there. Reading this book made me feel dirty and ashamed that there really are people out there who feel this way. Don't be fooled by the "us against the system" Vanier, it's just a very flimsy veil covering up what is essentially a book about race hatred.

    My Opinion of The Turner Diaries

    Let me make one point clear before I continue: this is not the most well written work of fiction by any stretch of the imagination. I consider it to have been an amateur project, which, upon completion was published by its author's own company, National Vanguard Books. However, I do see it as important reading, in that it is perhaps one of the most historically relevant social commentaries of our time. Although way off in it's prediction in 1978 of an all-out race war in the U.S. by 1991, some of the scenarios depicted in this story have come to pass, scenarios which I need not mention to one in tune enough to be reading this revue. The erosion of individual rights in favor of 'group rights', the moral and mental flabbiness of society, the continual demonization of those Americans of European ancestry, these are to name but a few. More intelligent adults should read this book than do. The fact that a group of desperate individuals have been inspired in the past to commit heinous acts of violence makes this all the more important a title for informed citizens to put on their reading lists. Then, after finishing that, going on to Jack London's 'Iron Heel' for comparison and correlation. Same idea: an apocalyptic upheaval, which starts locally and assumes global proportions, ultimately leading to a complete reordering of the world power structure. Both books disturbing and lurid in their descriptiveness. I think London was a better writer, though. I give this four stars, which I think is about fair for a trashy novel that's made such an impact upon recent history.

    I read this book because of its significance in the world of extremist hate groups and other whackadoodles.
    It lacks any worthwhile elements. The book ripped off a vision of the world from the CHinese cultural revolution, except instead of capitalists, Jews became the targets.
    What is scarey is that people either believe and/or inspired by such a piece of garbage. There is no "Cohen Act" and never will be a "Cohen Act."
    If government invades our peersonal liberties, it is at the local and state level, and the federal goernment is our sole saviour. Ask anyone who has been through a divorce.

    Read this book, and juxtapose it with 'The Iron Heel' by London. Extremists are bad no matter their political offiliation.
