    WellI thought the concept sounded vaguely interesting The entire topic is rife with political possibilities and I went into it wondering which side the book would come down on I'll give it this as much of that as there is it's done in a different wayDid you ever see that commercial a few years ago that got so much attention It shows the climate police arresting people for not having the right car and implies for other environmental failings Well that would be tame in this world What we have here is the radicaleven rabid environmentalist's wet dream The old hippies and new hippies for that matter are happyand somehow the new Green Government is working hand in hand with anarchistsThis makes no sense to me reallyI mean anarchist government???? That's like anarchist organizations a sort of contradiction in terms Oh well That's dealt with a little when you're into the bookSo humans are locked away on reservations cities are being disintegrated just read the book for how and re greenedAnd so far as I'm concerned the reader is being slowly bored to death There are stereotypes from all sides here from the rabid environmentalist who wants humans done away with completely to the evil industrialist who of course wants to wipe out nature much like the evil scientist who wants to destroy the world for his own gain The author dumps these into a literary slow cooker and gives us one of the silliest endings it's been my experience to readLook if you like the book enjoy I can't recommend it

    ARC provided courtesy of NetGalleyImagine a world where homicidal hippies escalated the culture war to all out war against the establishment and that those same fanatical hippies actually won and gained control over all of the Americas now known as the Green States of America This is the setting of Brian Herbert’s ecotopian The Green Book of Chairman RahmaThe Green States of America is rife with hypocrisy originating from the Chairman himself who wears peace symbols but who thinks nothing of putting to death tens of millions of people for crimes against the environment which he considers worse than rape or murder of a human Ineuity is another characteristic of this ecotopia and is evenly distributed on both sides of the revolution most notably in the form of misogyny which is alive and thriving in the Green States of America where they only way for a woman to get ahead is on her back or on her kneesHerbert takes inspiration from modern history and the counterculture to masterfully craft a world that is enough like our own that we are aghast at the mutilation of our collective experience of a free and democratic society into something that is akin to the Cold War Era of absolutist dictatorships cultural indoctrination propaganda and excesses all fueled by a relentless cult of personalityHerbert skillfully weaves a character driven thriller that is a real page turner by balancing world building with the exploration of the larger themes of who we are and what is our place in the world There is however a hiccup with the pacing of the book in the final third of the novel The uneven pacing of the last part of the book is frustrating to the extent that while some story lines are left unfinished; others make leaps at a disorienting pace that leaves some of the major plot developments fractured in a way that is inconsistent with the intricate and methodical care Hebert applied to construct the rest of the novelAt the time of this review it is unclear whether The Little Green Book of Chariman Rahma is a standalone endeavor or the first installment in a new series Speaking for myself I hope to read about the Greenies Corporates and assorted sycophants and dissidents of the Green States of America in future installments of what I hope will become a new seriesOn the left and right zealots live in echo chambers seeking only to converse with people who believe as they do Mord Pelley

    Possible spoilers aheadThe Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma was my first book by Brian Herbert and will likely be my last The book begins interestingly if not a little silly and weird In the close future an army of environmentalists overthrow the government and form a dictatorship that prioritizes its citizens behind nature This book explores a few decent themes along the lines of classism sexism environmentalism liberalism etc It just doesn't explore them well The characters are mostly terribly uninteresting and the focus of a lot of chapters was on unnecessary characters like Dylan Bane or Artie the Hubot Dylan is a former scientist who denounced the Green States of America and wants to use guerrilla warfare to destroy the fascists who killed his family Artie is Chairman Rahma's right hand man bot who just wants his master to make the right choices Literally nothing important happens with either of these characters by the end of the book As the book continues we are introduced to the absolutely ridiculous Gilda the resurrected glidewolf and Joss a man who basically becomes Tree sus Christ Honestly how this book was published with its last hundred pages not burned and re written boggles my mind uite possibly one of the worst books I've read I think it's one to skip over

    I received a beautiful copy of this book compliments of the author VJ Books and the Goodreads First Reads ProgramJoss Stuart is a hardworking and loyal government employee who faithfully serves the future Green States of America He completes his assignments thoroughly and follows the Little Green Book closely In return he leads a comfortable almost civilized life This changes however when he unintentionally becomes a threat to the government Will he sacrifice himself for the good of his country or unleash his survival instincts for control of his life? view spoilerI loved the complexity and irony of this novel’s backstory Its meticulous development and extreme inversion of future American culture were amazing For those reasons I plowed through the first half of this 400 page book with great anticipation When the midpoint transition finally occurred I froze mouth agape and eyes widened for at least ten minutes until I could shake off my disbelief The main character accidentally acuires superpowers? Really? Where is the radioactive spider? I am sure that its genetic blueprints are next to the glidewolf’s Is Uncle Trig destined to die like Uncle Ben? Is Kupi really Mary Jane in combat boots? For the love of all things literary do not even tell me that webs are involved They are? I uickly set the book aside before I could do anything rash like frisbee it through the windowWhen a new day dawned and my anger subsided—somewhat I considered the story from a different perspective Perhaps Herbert was experimenting with welding unusual genres into an unconventional aircraft of fantasy There was colorful text and the first half of the novel proved that he possessed imagination and skill Curious I continuedMuch to my relief the story pulled up from its nosedive and leveled off There were bouts of turbulence such as the lack of seismic detection in a world that could wield dark energy and the rushed Evana relationship but the pagan folklore integration was a stabilizing mechanism that permitted a safe landing Would I fly again? I am not so sure hide spoiler

    I'm glad my updates about this book didn't take I was a little upset and spewing some vitriol But the truth of the matter is that I didn't like it Not one bit The writing was ugh I can't even find word for it It was dull The book was full of never ending descriptions unnecessary to the story That's all in addition to the preaching the author does about his opposition to environmental concerns He likens environmentalists and their method of governing to communist China and the evils they perpetrated and presumably still do against their people It was necessary to the story to paint this kind of a picture But the extent to which Herbert criticized the whole environmental movement is disrespectful and unnecessary And there's the imprecise use of language On page 124 about 1 hour 4 minutes into the audio version that I listened to he writes In his mid twenties he removed his polished green helmet As just one example he uses this common way of expressing how old a character is But I always have a big problem with this As it reads the sentence explains that this is what a character was doing in his twenties or at whatever age he may be It doesn't say anything about the actual character other than at that particular specified unit of time It's a shitty way to state a character's age There are better techniues to explain this smoothly and seamlessly And like I said it's just one example of the clunky writing that Herbert uses consistently throughout the bookIt was a chore to get through this book even though I was listening to it I didn't even begin to care about these characters and only kept listening to make sure I had the correct ending in my mind And the end was predictable Every little bit I guess it ended for the best but it felt forced and abruptI wouldn't really recommend this book to anyone because I think there have to be other authors that have treated this kind of story thoughtfully and with openness Now to go seek some out

    Review by ChelseaI want to say it was an interesting analysis of an oppressive society I want to say it was uniue for exploring environmentalist extremism But I've also gotta cop to some truth I never would have picked this book up if it wasn't a free ARC advanced reading copy to review And I was willing to look beyond the disengaging title and really like this book Seriously I'll uote myself the title is a bit goofy but it's got a cool description and it's from Tor so I'll give it a try And for three months I tried but the pacing is like molasses the descriptions were repetitive I was rooting for the bad guy to hurry up and kill one of the main characters and I didn't care if the lot of them died in a fire Oh and I could only get a third of the way through it after three months then read The Girl with All the Gifts and The Broken Eye not a short book in the space of two weeks And while we're being honest I hated the title The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma Even after you find out what the little green book is and who Chairman Rahma is even when it makes sense it doesn't make it better Also it kept making me crave ramen Continue reading at Whedonopoliscom

    Why were ornithopters in this book? Why did the homicidal hippie dictator fail to scare the reader? Why did a giant flying wolf stuff people and robots into its giant marsupial pouch? Why did the main character get superpowers? Why did the autocrat have so much sex creepy old perv? Why was the text printed in annoying green ink? Why were human eyeballs in robots? Why were there only three mega nations on the planet mid 21st century? What message was the author trying to send about environmentalism? Why was publication green lighted? Why did I read this book? Why am I asking so many uestions? There are no answers

    Really I wanted to like this It had a lot of pull Sci fi Brian Herbert Green Revolution but honestly it ended up feeling like a lot of preaching climate guilt tripping It certainly spoke to my generation with references to revolutionary era Berkeley and the free thinking mindset that grew from that time but I guess I just wasn't ready for climatological bible thumping Ah well
