“What if major events in modern history were planned decades ago?”
Newspaper reporter John Teddy’s miserable life is turned upside down when he uncovers a voice from the past—a voice that suspiciously knows far too much about the would-be future. John’s natural curiosity to understand the hidden message takes him to places he never imagined seeing, and ongoing conspiracies he never thought existed. The more John gets involved, the more he is led towards mysteries that are beyond his understanding. The circle of people involved grows bigger stretching from west to east; each step forward is like a step backward.
The tagline alone had me interested in The Clout of Gen. Once I started reading, it was the writing that kept me coming back for more. This is a great conspiracy story that spans a pretty epic timeline.
In addition to the grand scale of the plot, I really enjoyed John Teddy as a central character, leading us through the story. He’s all kinds of determined to get to the bottom of everything that’s been going on, even though he’s in fairly dire straights at the beginning of the book. I also really enjoyed the dynamic of his relationship with Hitari.
The biggest downside of this book is the cover. It unfortunately looks pretty home made and might keep people away from this otherwise great book. But if you’re willing to look passed that, I promise you’ll be in for a great reading experience.
A fantastic read from a fresh new author in the literary world.
