The M-16 Agenda by James Wilcox
Reviewed by Alex Canton-Dutari
As I am not a US citizen and do not reside in such country I do not feel qualified to say much about the political descriptions depicted in this interesting novel.
Nevertheless, I was impressed by the author's use of first and third person assigned to the main presidential contender's personal stories. This technique is not always successful. It was in this case.
On the other hand, the way politics is handled depicts a similar world pattern -- I recognized several dynamics familiar in my country. Therefore, the story is scarily believable.
As Mr. Wilcox is a teacher, I feel confident that the passion underneath his words, especially in the M-16 Agenda, stems from his knowledge of what may be facts. In this case, the genre of this novel could be "creative non-fiction."
The plot is of actual interest, and I am sure that there will be many readers who will react to the political theme rather than the prose, which adds a perk to the author's creativity.
To make the reading perfect, I would suggest another editing process for some minor slips in grammar, punctuation and word meanings -- "emancipated" instead of .
