“The Western Front” kicks off a series of dystopic books by Archer Garrett. In this book, Archer Garrett does a great job of laying out the America in free-fall scenario. Naturally with the ongoing economic crisis and the deepening political divide, this kind of book is becoming more popular. This one is better than most. The settings are vividly drawn and the characters are highly relatable.
This book does suffer from the same malady that plagues many small press and independently published works, not enough editing. Nonetheless the strength of Garrett’s storytelling more than overcomes this. I give “The Western Front” a high grade and am moving right into the sequel, “Kratocracy.” Highly recommended.
