It's the year 2103. Fifty-three years after the second American Civil War, the landscape of a once great nation is in shambles. The United States is no more and is now broken into three separate countries; The American Union, The Confederate States of America, and the California Republic. The American Union is in a constant state of Martial Law due to rioting by a group of protestors known as "Outliers". They fight against the oppressive laws decreed by President Caleb Fulton, but all is not what it seems. The man they know as President Fulton is an actor named Stephen O'Neil who is being held captive by an administration that has been in power for more than 20 years.
After their plan to have the protestors killed in a tragedy dubbed "The Chicago Massacre", the American Union's capital is in upheaval and reeling over the deaths as more troops hit the ground to secure order. But the massacre is nothing more than a giant act of smoke and mirrors. There is an agenda at play that once it has begun, will have a devastating effect on the entire world.
Told from multiple points of view, in brief glimpses of a character's life, 2103 is a story about corruption, greed, and the human will to survive. For those who love dystopian, speculative fiction. Take a journey into the "land of the free and the home of the brave" after everything falls apart.

2103 Reminded Me Why I Do Not Listen To This Genre
The description sounded like a really cool book, the United States broken up into three separate countries and the struggles and triumphs that are caused because of it.
However, now I remember why I don't choose to read/listen to sci-fi books. I was lost the entire time. It sounded a bit like The Walking Dead (which I have not seen any episodes of)
If SyFy is your thing, please don't allow this review to dissuade you from purchasing with a credit for paying for a download. I will point out that it is very short, less than three hours.
The narrator was very good and had the topic, subject matter been different I think I would be more enthused about it. He did a great job depicting the mostly male cast very well.
No: I can't think of anything to warn about
