American War by Omar El Akkad
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was powerful and massively frightening, as a Southerner, I can totally see this occuring and it scares me to death. A tale of the second civil war in America that in all honesty feels almost timeless, it could almost have easily been the first civil war.
Horrible times, lawlessness, death and disease at every corner and so tangibly possible it hurts to read it. Powerful storytelling and characters and as a lifelong Mississippian, ripped out my heart in places, but that is a good thing.
Read this book.
