Jubilee: a year of emancipation and restoration provided by ancient Hebrew law to be kept every 50 years by the emancipation of Hebrew slaves, restoration of alienated lands to their former owners, and omission of all cultivation of the land. The story Jubilee takes a similar idea to what is really keeping the world enslaved - debt.
Jubilee reminded me of a lot of other stories throughout it. At times it was similar to Mr. Robot and Fight Club (end-game of both stories). And at other times it had the technical expertise that it reminded me of some of the best fiction thrillers and non-fiction technical books I've read. If he continues to write stories like Jubilee, Joseph Preach is an author to look out for.
The technology expertise was definitely there. I didn't feel like I was being talked down to either which made this a fun and enjoyable book without getting extremely bogged down in the details. Preacher had a way of writing about difficult and technical things where the reader could just enjoy it, instead of having to go Google it.
The story had a really nice feel and flow to it. It really flew by and I couldn't stop reading it. I think it took me less than two days to finish this book. And those were work days. I listened almost every moment I was awake. I love when a book can totally capture my attention like that.
I sincerely hope that this isn't it for Preacher. I hope that he has more technothrillers about similar ideas bouncing around in his head because I really want more books like this in my life.
I thought that the narration done by Tim Campbell really helped to set the tone of Jubilee. He allowed Preacher's ideas to just flow and made a book I couldn't put down even harder to set down.
I was given a free copy of this audiobook which has not affected my review in any way.
