Overview

Agenda 21 by Glenn Beck, Harriet Parke

A new postapocalyptic thriller from #1 bestselling author Glenn Beck.

HOW MUCH WOULD YOU RISK TO BE FREE?

Emmeline and her family live in a place that just a generation ago was called America. Now, it’s simply known as “the Republic.” There is no president. No Congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom.

There are only the Authorities.

This bleak and barren existence is all that eighteen-year-old Emmeline has ever known. She dutifully walks her energy board daily and accepts all male pairings assigned to her by the Authorities. Like most citizens, she keeps her head down and her eyes closed.

Until the day they come for the one she loves most.

Agenda 21 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 175 reviews.

This is a fictional story based on a very real threat, Agenda 21. You can read about Agenda 21 on the U.N. website. Anyone who has given a low numeric rating review with no verbiage isn't worth considering and the person who slanders the content and author is afraid that you will learn the truth. It's a very good book, it reads fast and even though it is a work of fiction, the story is quite plausible. Literarily speaking, the writing is a little choppy at times with a slight documentary feel. Still, the story is powerful and you will find yourself breezing through chapter after chapter. It's difficult to put down once you start reading. Get the book. You won't regret it. Loan it to others to read and they will thank you and ignore the shills who call this a "paranoid fantasy"

Backers of Agenda 21 will crawl out of the woodwork to discredit this book. They want everyone to stay asleep so there is no backlash to their agenda. Agenda 21 should be read and passed around to everyone you know. If it is allowed to go unchallenged, Agenda 21 will destroy the entire world.

The majority of reviews I've seen for this book fall in one of the following categories: "I hate Glenn Beck", "Glenn Beck stole this book from the author" or "The ideas in this book could never happen". I don't care about any of that as this is a BOOK review and I thought it was one of the best books I've read this year. This was a fast paced easy read and that would probably be my only mark down on this book as I wanted more of it when I got to the end. I'm holding out hope that Harriet Parke follows this up with another to continue the story. While this does deal with the extremes of actual documented ideas presented by the United Nations Agenda 21, I could easily see how this could come about. A few changes to laws here, a few more changes there and before you know it, all the power has been given away. And I can easily see people going along with an idea that is presented to them that they won't have to worry about making ends meet or getting ahead as long as they feel comfortable that their needs will be met and they won't have to work as hard as they currently do. I'm sure a large number would go right along with it before they realized what they'd done. As the book states, the ideas presented are at the extreme ends of what could happen, but who wants to read a book where things are only mildly messed up? How entertaining would that have been? A great novel that would make a great series that also holds the potential of educating the public on a potentially dangerous idea held within the United Nations, presented in an entertaining way. I highly recommend you read it.

I had read the original Agenda 21 documents from the UN, and the Brundtland Report, so I was intrigued how someone could use fiction to show the consequences. Parke and Beck seem to have done a good job creating a post-constitutional society. It was interesting to see reviews for this book before it was even released. I do not believe they received advanced copies as their reviews were no where near the target. They seemed to focus on supporting the principles of Agenda 21 and not actually reviewing the work in question. The main character Emmeline, too young to remember the constitutional government of the United States, was dependent on her mother's teachings. She leads a very sad life as all the "citizens" do with few freedoms, little more than human machines to be maintained to keep the energy flowing for the Authorities. No religion, no real "marriage", and everything equal and fair. Not to ruin for those that have not read, the clues left for her about their family were very intriguing. I shared her anger, as her family history was taken from her. The novel was very well done, and I believe accurate if Agenda 21 taken to it's ultimate ends simply by taking the designers at their own words.

I got about halfway through this book and had to put it down because my heart was pounding. Then I had to pick it right back up to finish it because I was so enthralled. Obviously, if Agenda 21 is implamented it wont be EXACTLY like this...but it will still be too close to this. I wish I could loan this to every one of my friends and family.

Wow. Thats all i can say. It was very eye opening. Scary. Very scary that the world could end end up like this. Will very likely end up like this. And very soon too. I wish more people would read stuff like this and really understood what was happening these days. Its just crazy. By the way, whatever happened to freedom?

I bought this yesterday and read it in one evening. It is a well written dystopian future novel. Marketed as adult fiction but more in the vein of recent teen fiction with a teenage female protagonist. Certainly suitable for teenagers. As to whether or not it is an accurate representation of the intentions behind Agenda 21, all I can say is if the ideas presented in Agenda 21 and similar proposals were taken to their logical conclusions, the world would look much like what is depicted in Agenda 21. A self-contained story but definitely leaves the door open for a sequel. Although Glenn Beck's name is first on the cover, he really functioned more as an "editor" for the story. This is not the first time that he has paired with little-known authors and put his name on the cover. I'm really not crazy about that but, let's face it, Glen Beck's name "sells" books. I hope that once he gets series (like this one could be) established that he turns the marque over to the primary authors. He recently renamed his network "The Blaze TV" and said that it was because it wasn't about him, that there were a lot of people going into making The Blaze TV work.

Not bad, easy read, finished in a couple of hours. Interesting story line, but maybe just a bit over the top. But would recommend this book.

It was a fantastic book. It made me think of the things that are happening today that could cause this type of life in the future. I already see things like building condo in the city - walk to everything, don't drive your car. Oh, I could go on and on.... I read the book in one day, couldn't put it down.

Being a fan of 1984, Brave New World, Atlas Shrugged, etc., I loved this book! A fictionalized portrayal of Agenda 21 taken to an extreme. But totally possible. For example, there is a pledge of allegiance to the planet Earth that already exists, so even the bizarre earth/nature pledges in the book aren't too far fetched.

I thought it was a provocative book....it is written in story fashion but is backed up by reality in this world. It is, as Glenn Beck says, an adult Hunger Games. Agenda 21 is the exact opposite of what America stands (stood?) for.....liberty and freedom. Citizens need to be aware of what is happening in such a quiet way before it is too late.

Read. This. Book. NOW. This book was a very good work of fiction that evokes many emotions. It was an even scarier book when I found out about the real Agenda 21. Please read this book, regardless of your political views. It may be co-written by Glenn Beck, but politics isn't the biggest issue in this book. The sanity of america is. We all have the same future and this book shares what it might look like.

While many argue that the UN's Agenda 21 does not give indication that any portion of this story has a place in reality, I say do some research! Agenda 21 in itself is not so radical, it is the documentation of summits held on the requirements for implementation that should have every freedom-loving American shaking in their boots! When you look at government job listings and see openings for relocation and detainment specialists, and hear first person stories of military being questioned on their willingness to fire on American civilians, you have to ask if the potential exists! The only thing left to do is disarm the pubkic!

Agenda 21 is wickedly cool book! It was breathily shocking how the author(s) can make you feel as if this could happen here in America. The trouble with most books plot does not some real, however Agenda 21 is as real as it gets. I can whole hardly recommend this book.

This book really opened my eyes. With everything currently going on in the world it makes reading this book a raw experience. It does not take a political genius to figure out that if humanity does not do something to stop something like Agenda 21 from happening, then we are truly in trouble. I have read so many books about what our future could be like. Everyone has their own idea. Well, guess what folks? Agenda 21 IS real and as they said in this story, it started out slowly at first. We are being kept in the dark because the media only tells us what THEY want us to hear. Do your own research!!!!!!!
