I liked how three woman characters evolved gaining respect and power. I liked the lessons regarding responsibility. I liked how one especially evil person met his/her end. I liked the message of forgiveness and healing.
I don't have a book in mind but I do have a movie in mind. The movie is called Idiocracy.
In the movie an average IQ solider is sent to the future and he ends up being the smartest person in the world because the more intelligent people practiced birth control and the idiots overpopulated and took over the world.
In this book all the idiots are also in charge running things.
He did an over all good job.
This was a long multi-volume book that required several sittings.
This is a satirical novel that I think some commentators took too seriously. It is also a fable as well as a modern day retelling of the civil war.
Starting with a blotched assassination and through a comedy of errors of political and military bumblings, sensational one sided news coverage (done for ratings and not accuracy) and the influence of big business and special interests; the U.S. is plunged into a civil war. The lame duck president's term is extended by congress and he is made out to be a dictator.
Things escalate with power hungry inept grandiose politicians and military leaders. Big business wanting to make war time profits fuel the fires and the news agencies wanting high ratings worsen the chaos with untrue sensationalized news reports.
When the president finally starts acting like the dictator he is accused of being stability finally occurs. One mislead idealistic female militia member finally gets enlightened and becomes a true heroine. Another female soldier who has more smarts leadership abilities and common sense than any of the military leaders comes to the attention of the president and is put in charge of a special department with power, which also helps to bring an end to the conflict. One intelligent talented female reporter finally gains the standing she needs to report the news in a way that is more objective. I thought it was interesting that three woman who were under valued low clogs in the begging of the book ended up being very influential showing more common sense, bravery, and influence than the original men who were in charge.
