American War by Omar El Akkad

Global warming has changed the face of the planet. America is ripping itself apart in its second civil war. This is the setting for Omar El Akkad’s dystopian imaging of the late 21st century. El Akkad forces readers to imagine what it might be like to live in a place torn apart by war. Or more specifically, and probably El Akkad’s goal, is to have the reader imagine his or her home and family destroyed by war.

This book is unsettling in its ability to make one imagine living in a place where random and unpredictable violence is an everyday part of life.  If you like Cormac McCarthy novels, check out American War by Omar El Akkad.
