Indian Country
« on: January 01, 2018, 01:11:09 PM »
 Just finished reading it. I almost always read history books but you guys said it was a good read. Well It was exciting and fast paced right to the end. I have one complaint though. At times he doesn't tell you how they went from one place to the other. It just starts in a new paragraph.
 I enjoyed it enough that moments ago I ordered "Peoples Republic". Got to see the end.

I believe you'll enjoy "People's Republic".  I'm hoping that Schlicter will come out with another novel during this coming year.

 I finished Peoples Republic that and Indian Country are great reads but should have been one book.

 Speaking of books I just found my lost copy of "Senatorial Privilege The Chappaquiddick cover up" By Leo Damore. Have any of you read it.  I bought my copy at an estate sale 11yrs ago. What a dirt bag Ted Kennedy was.
Amazon has them for $1.99.
I guess now that Ted is dead it is easier to get.

"Peoples Republic" was written first as a stand alone novel.  Because of the popularity of the character and the background, Schlicter wrote "Indian Country".  I guess if they both sell well; he'll make it into a series.  It seems that modern authors rarely write stand alone novels anymore, they've all gone the trilogy or series route.  I'm guessing it's mostly for financial reasons.

 INDIAN COUNTRY that way you will understand why he is so aggressive.

I concur with Jojo, because it sets up the scenario for "People's Republic."  I hope you enjoy the humor in the stories.  And some of the pronouns in the novels came up at work today, and I couldn't help but reflect upon the novels.

Well, I just finished Schlichter's Indian Country. On a 1-5 scale with "5" being exceptional, I would rate the book a "3.5". For you readers who rated it VG or exceptional no offense should be taken. Just different strokes for different folks.

The book is a modern day High Noon or Magnificent Seven or Seven Samurai ala modern day warfare and politics. The plot-line is a bit unbelievable.

The United States splits in half. One half is Red States (Conservative) and the other half is Blue States (Progressive). I could see this happening after a civil war maybe - But not by a popular vote, as it apparently happened in the book.

Now, once I got past the plot-line, I enjoyed the book.

I loved Schlichter humor and delivery through the hero of the book, Kelly Turnbell.

Turnbell's personality was a mixture of Pike (Robert Crais), and Hawk & Spencer (Robert Parker). A witty, sarcastic, and pure testosterone character.   

Schlichter does a very good job of detailing how a insurgency program is run so, it acts as a good baseline for understanding guerilla tactics - Ala Admiral Yamamoto's superposed statement, "You cannot invade mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass." This quote has not been substantiated but is in essence a true statment. 

If you can borrow the book, borrow it...If your library has it, sign it out...If you find it at a used book store, buy it...However, there are better books out there of the same genera that are worth the full price of $15-.

Now I will start on Peoples Republic.    :cheers:
