Liberators

Posted by heyrandy on January 2, 2016

Liberators, John Wesley,Rawles. 2014.

He has done it. A new tale of a plucky band of the well-armed expel first the French then the Chinese. This time the action takes place in British Columbia. It is the Canadians’ turn to be brave, resourceful, and victorious. Fans of Rawles will like the book. I give it a C. Post-apocalyptic novels usually follow the same formula: crash, improvising survivors, victory. This is the case with Rawles’ latest. The details are there┬áto give technical information to the readers. I did not find anything new.

One thing that I did find odd was Rawles’ description of the French occupiers as “Frogs.” He did not refer to the Chinese as anything other the Chinese.

The book does end on a positive note. Twenty-two years after the crash, a war story is corrected with a bloody nose. Last time it was ice cream. I guess the Canadians are different.

Rawles has a new book out. It is about a plucky band who are building a libertarian-cum- state in the no man’s between Sudan and Kenya. Review to soon follow.
