Rather odd. Still not sure what to think of it.

Had trouble reading this book because of the terrible language. Would not recommend it at all!

Excellent! It moves at a nice speed and has a really good storyline. Awesome! The religious oppression was most compelling. AHS/JD

This book is insanely hard to summarize! I’m going to do my best and hopefully you will get the jist of it.Adrian Havoc lives in a world much like our own. Actually it is our world, or could possibly be our world sometime in the future. Somewhere, somehow something went wrong and now half of the country is toxic due to the fallout. The government controls every aspect of society. You do what they say, when they say, no matter what. You believe in God, period, under no circumstance do you question religion. The northern part of The United Christian States is full of unbelievers and crazies from the blast. And if that isn’t bad enough the end of the world is coming soon, the Shift will be here any day.Okay so seriously this book kinda scared the shit out of me, but in a good way. Perhaps not so much the book itself, but what the book implies. Because if anything, it is totally possible if not probable that this could happen. It’s definitely one of those thought provoking novels. I think I would have like to seen more detail in the overall storyline. In terms of reality, how likely is it that a teenage boy could break into a government establishment and not be detected and detained. Not very likely. I think that’s really my only complaint about the novel, the climax was mediocre , I think it could have been much more, but even so, the actual climax was interesting. In terms of religion I didn’t think this book was at all anti-religion, but simply expresses disdain of anti-establishment. Overall, a very interesting read. ( )

What would the world be like, if a specific religious group ran the nation? If you want to know read Shift. It is a world that has gone terribly wrong. Adrian and his family are paying a very high price being a part of this kind of society. It is very difficult for him to accept this life and especially since his Dad has supposedly died on the Moon. Adrian feels he is responsibly for watching out for his sister Shriek who is psychic and has difficulty relating to others. His mother is trying her best to keep her family going. He finally makes a decision to find out what else is out in the world. Adrian winds up on a mission to free a penguin and finds himself part of the Resistance. Will the Resistance be able to stop the Apocalypse the government is trying to bring about or will there be a new beginning?

This novel is a too scary possibility. The writer is pretty matter of fact about this new society and that is what makes this work frightening. The characters are interestingly written and likable. I admire Adrian's willingness to question the regime and fight back in his own way. ( )
