The Revolution Blues

Drama / Thriller

Blurb

Rachel Porcher has sterling credentials and a prestigious job at the White House—and yet she’s increasingly convinced she may be more machine than human. Examining the age-old question of what makes us human—refracted through the lens of the digital age—a wide cast of characters revolve, collide, and interweave around the nucleus of Rachel Porcher. Set in dystopia America a decade hence, the lives of Americans have been decimated by corporate greed, automation, ineffective policy, and globalization; all three branches of the U.S. government have been crippled and corrupted; and the Silicon Valley technology bubble has popped, leaving only two rival technology titans, FrienDexx and Brickster, stronger than ever, aggressively expanding to all corners of modern life, including the defense industry. Against this backdrop, follow the members of an as-yet uncorrupted DARPA program tasked with creating the first Sentient Machines, an enigmatic domestic anti-technology terrorist group’s attempt to topple the broken government and the corporate parasites it hosts, and the CEO of FrienDexx’s desperate attempts to obtain the ability to create his own Sentient Machines.

Epigraph

Well I’m a barrel of laughs with my carbine on.

I keep ’em hoppin’ till my ammunition’s gone.

But I’m still not happy,

I feel like there’s something wrong.

I’ve got the revolution blues.

I see bloody fountains,

and ten million dune buggies

comin’ down the mountain.

— Neil Young, “The Revolution Blues”

ObsidianAsh: YA/NA.Contemporary. Neglected Rich Girl meets Bad Playboy Guy. Heroine has a few secrets in her past and one of those secrets want her back. One of the better writers I've read on here. It could use a little bit more in-depth of the characters backstorys but otherwise it was good.

pencil: So is it need or is it love and will it be okay and is there more? In hospitals this kind of love is not on. It might go on but it is almost sacrilege and it is almost indecent. The way forward is to think in terms of ethics but as there is no need we just applaud.

caitlynvice1: Loved this. Nice job. Enjoyed the mix of supernaturals and that it didn't make me think of other Alpha books, its a bit different then the rest. You should look into having it published.

amphodithnkomo: I loved every minute of the book. I won't lie-there were times I was upset with our heroine but I guess when you're in love you act stupid but overall I was pleased with the writing skill and the plot.
