A disappointing depressing story that was not well written or well edited The best I can say is that it had a happy ending which I desperately needed after struggling through the forty days Summary à PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Preston Fleming

Read on my Kindle e reader When I was in college I read Solzhenitsyn’s ONE DAY IN THE LIFE OF IVAN DENISOVITCH and excerpts from GULAG ARCHIPELAGO and came away thinking of the Gulag as a uniuely Soviet phenomenon just as the Nazi death camps could only have happened under Hitler Then I read about the labor camps in China under Mao in Cambodia under Pol Pot and in North Korea under the Kims as well as others in South Africa Yugoslavia and elsewhere Later when I traveled in the Third World I recognized that the kind of tyrant who creates forced labor camps can pop up nearly anywhere Years later I read Sinclair Lewis’s novel IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE about a fictional American dictatorship in the 1930s That in turn brought me to THE PLOT TO SEIZE THE WHITE HOUSE non fiction about the 1933 Business Plot to overthrow FDR More recently I have been asking myself this if the Great Depression brought America to the brink of dictatorship might today’s Great Recession do something similar This summer I came across FORTY DAYS AT KAMAS a novel that asks what if American tyranny replaced American democracy What struck me first about KAMAS was that it is based on a true story from GULAG ARCHIPELAGO that I remember having read in college But in KAMAS the setting characters and political backdrop are authentically American and chillingly realistic Though the author does not describe in detail the events that bring the President for Life and his Unionist Party to power his America of 2024 is a totalitarian one party state where political dissidents are sent to forced labor camps to work and die as slaves of the state Most of the action takes place in and around a corrective labor camp in Kamas Utah The novel’s protagonist Paul Wagner lands at Kamas on the eve of an unprecedented prisoner revolt that leads to a forty day siege by government forces What Wagner does not know is that his eleven year old daughter has become separated from her mother and sister and has arrived in Utah on the same train as her prisoner father There she is put to work as a domestic servant to the wife of the camp’s Deputy Commandant where she observes at close hand just what kind of people her overlords have come to be Eventually Wagner nears of his daughter's presence and must choose between his family and his commitment to the revolt Though dark and at times difficult to read due to the relentless suspense I found KAMAS to be a hopeful and uplifting story that affirms positive American values and shows how even the most oppressive tyranny cannot easily extinguish the American love of freedom Paul Wagner is vividly and believably drawn as a devoted father and responsible business owner though not without flaws The minor characters are sufficiently three dimensional to drive the plot though in some cases are not as fully developed as I would have liked But to me one of the most valuable and insightful aspects of KAMAS was how it showed largely through discussions overheard by Wagner’s daughter what motivates the camp officials and their visiting bosses in their effort to exert total control over the camp and society at large KAMAS is difficult to pigeonhole because it is uite unlike other dystopian novels I have read First it comes across as a serious piece of fiction than a genre thriller Second it holds up a mirror to our current political landscape in a way that helped me to see how the US might today be headed down the road toward dictatorship And finally it is written in a low key realistic style with close attention to facts and details that made it easy for me to suspend disbelief and enter into the story This is not a sensational page turner to be read merely for titillation though it works uite well as a thriller and kept me awake past midnight reading straight through to the end I recommend KAMAS highly for thriller readers with a taste for political intrigue and conspiracy But I also recommend it for readers of non fiction who might benefit from a richly imagined vision what a future dystopian America might look like In the coming weeks I plan to read KAMAS’s seuel STAR CHAMBER BROTHEROOD to see what Preston Fleming’s America might look like in 2029 If the seuel is crafted as masterfully as KAMAS I expect Preston Fleming's books will draw a good deal attention from readers like me I give FORTY DAYS AT KAMAS my highest rating
