Gopherville had never seen anything like it, but then, the way Bartholomew handles this political satire, I suppose no where else has either. This is a rollicking, laugh-filled expose of the nature of Homeland Security and particularly biting commentary in the light of recent news. I use the term security as lightly as does author Bartholomew. He's never let me down and with this re-release, I was glued to the page start to finish.

If you have a sneaking suspicion that not all is as it seems when it comes to either those one-stop towns that dot the landscape between the shores; when it comes to official news releases on any subject; the guys in the black suits; or on those shabby, "between the cracks" folks, this is your book. If you have trouble remembering which color alert code is in effect today, this novella won't help. It will give you quite a few good laughs, but it won't help make you feel more secure. It would make an absolutely phenomenal film, and I hope it gets optioned immediately, while it's still fresh! Thanks again, Steve!

We call Steve Bartholomew "Bart" in these parts. Bart's book is a satire, and a good one. First, there's an entertaining, page-turning story to keep us involved. He's playful, funny, and even a little naughty here and there...all the while making serious points about The Patriot Act, Homeland Security, and The War on Terrorism.

You'll love his anti-hero alter-ego, Bradshaw:

"Now, anyone meeting Bradshaw for the first time might have leaped to a number of mistaken conclusions. One of them might have been that he was anti-technology...Another wrong impression might have been that Bradsaw was poor...Another mistaken impression a stranger might have was that Bradshaw was ignorant and uneducated. That idea would be extremely wrong. Yet another possible impression might be that Bradshaw was crazy as a looon. In this, our theoretical stranger might possibly be correct" (Pp. 13-16)

And, you'll love the ending, taken, as it happens, from one of my favorite childhood stories. Sorry, can't tell you. I'm sworn to secrecy. You wouldn't want me to be in violation of the Patriot Act, now, would you?

This is a delightful read--I found myself thinking about the characters and eager to get back to the book. It moves quickly, the characters resemble folks probably all of us know, and the situations are ones that I feel parallel current events.

It is not controversial, somewhat validating (I've often wondered about things like that..) --Enjoy!
