    Hypocritical Trash

    A story about a man who feels trapped in the city, feeling surrounded by mindless sheep who give thought only to the actions of each day, never noticing they are in a cage of their own making. So with an Ayn-Randian sense of moral and intellectual superiority the man sets out to walk from Brooklyn to Ithaca...with a couple bottled waters and a handful of energy bars.
    What? Here's a man so filled with his sense of superiority he abandons his home to live a life of solitude, yet he spends not one moment thinking of the requirements for his trip. What he does think of is how the folks around him have abandoned their freedom in exchange for a kind of hive living. What he doesn't think of is how the bottled water and energy bars HE IS DEPENDING ON FOR SURVIVAL are products of that very civilization.
    So this rugged individualist heads off to the wilds, intent on living by his own means...and finds his survival absolutely dependent on the aid he gets from people along the way. These are people who somehow recognize that he is an intellectually superior being, separate from the crowd, even though he's to stupid to carry a jacket in winter.
    It gets worse, as our hero ends up getting his life saved one more time—this time at a facility maintained by the very government he's been railing at as a useless weight on the citizens. The hypocrisy continues as a "triple agent" Russian/American spy lambastes a crowd with the idea that all governments are bad and everyone should "just say 'no'" and go farm their own food—nevermind that he's spent his entire life working to further the needs of the governments he's deriding.
    If this book were a satire or even written with a hint of irony there would be some redeeming value, but the authors seem blissfully ignorant of their intellectual paucity.
    Giving it two stars, because I did finish it, if only to see if the protagonist would ever open his eyes. He doesn't.

    I agree with Hypocritical  Trash.  The main character should have died way before he did.  What survival instincts he had did not make up for the ones he didn't have.  The basics.  His journey seemed to take forever just getting out of the city.  To me, this is because the author had to tell every road name that he took.  Having never been there, this just made it boring to me.  Just get him out of the city already!

    Unusual

    The beginning was very interesting, but the story took a puzzling turn. I did not care for the book at all. Very preachy.
