"Guantanamo Redux" uses the techniques of speculative fiction and science fiction to create a dystopian vision of the near future in America. Here, most any kind of dissent is criminalized and individuals are routinely charged with terrorism offences. The L. A. Mercy Killer is incarcerated in the Bay of Frisco, a center for domestic terrorists, after the third terror has destroyed much of Los Angeles. Special Agent Orwell and Judge Dan believe the girl whose face you can't see was deeply involved in not only the Mercy Killer's crime, but, also, the massive terror attack on Los Angeles. In Part II of the novella, a flashback, we retrace the steps of the girl whose face you can't see prior to the third terror. Who is she and what does she represent? Did she know the L.A. Mercy Killer? Was she responsible for his crime and for her own? The conclusion of the novella is a chilling expose of how conformity and authoritarianism threaten freedom, imagination, language, life and limb. The L.A. Mercy Killer stands in the long tradition of dissidents who rage against the security state.… (mais)

I just couldn't get into this book. I persevered for about a third and it wasn't doing anything for me. Maybe it was the mood I was in -- who knows. Just wasn't for me. ( )

Couldn't make heads nor tails from this one.

Sure, it's well written but I was unable to find the subject (if there was one) appealing.

The only saving grace: it is short so I was spared longs hours of not understanding what in heck was all that about. ( )

A kaleidoscopic romp, through drug fuddled eyes. It took me a while to get used to the style as sometimes too descriptive, but once I got over that I enjoyed the read. ( )

I cannot really say much about this book as I found it rather too cumbersome to pursue. Why use one word when you can use ten? Take this sentence: "He was a white-haired gentleman around 69." Or this: "As the judge plucked the light from the animal’s jaws, as he handled the broadsides of the blade of it, he did so with remarkable agility, as one doing tricks with coins".
This seems to be a cross between a nightmare and a kafkaesque future but after 25 or so pages I was just too tired to find out. Some might enjoy the narrative style but I did not. ( )

I received this book as a Librarything giveaway.
I can't say I really enjoyed this book. It was obscure in it's premise and language. It was lacking in any background to give the reader a chance to get a clear direction of where it was headed, for me, at least. I try to give everything I read the best chance to capture and transport me but the only transport I got was to Guantanamo. Unfortunately. I wouldn't recommend it. ( )
