BOOK REVIEW – A LITTLE REBELLION NOW AND THEN: A Tale of Two Eras by Scott Skipper @SSkipperAuthor

BOOK REVIEW

A LITTLE REBELLION NOW AND THEN: A Tale of Two Eras

By Scott Skipper

**I rate books with cups of coffee in place of the regular stars**

I love reading a book that captures my attention from the very beginning and never lets me go! A LITTLE REBELLION NOW AND THEN by Scott Skipper is just that type of book!

Author Scott Skipper gives us a look at the lives of his characters at a date presumed to be present day by this reviewer, or is it some date in the future? He also flashes back to their lives in the 1970s.

The flashbacks into the characters’ lives allowed me to develop a feeling of intimacy with them straight away! I felt like I had spent more than a little bit of time with them during the 70s even though there is no way that could have happened. After all, I was just a child during the 70s!

The writing is very crisp and flows beautifully! The characters are incredibly interesting and also very mysterious, which kept me totally engaged in the book!

This is the first book I’ve read by Scott Skipper, but I will be rearranging my TBR piles so that I have several more of his novels very close to the top!

I can honestly give A LITTLE REBELLION NOW AND THEN: A Tale of Two Eras by Scott Skipper a steaming hot five cups of Room With Books coffee, and I definitely recommend you run out and get your copy today!

ABOUT THE BOOK

When a leftwing activist from the Nixon era morphs into a conservative writer of political incorrectness, can she ever escape the evil eye of the establishment? Political winds may shift but some things never change. If you pull on the dragon’s tail, you’d best be ready to take some heat. Kate is no stranger to a jail cell, but she thought she got past that four decades ago. Then again, in a world run amuck with knife brandishing jihadists spilling from their sharia zones, maybe a jail cell is the safest place to be.

Is it true that the more things change, the more they stay the same? For Kate it seems that way, but perhaps there is a new and more ominous threat, jihad. Her computer is hacked, there are mysterious voices on her phone, her condo is bugged, why would someone spy on a sweet old lady from Ohio who writes snarky novels about the government? Kate fought to get the bureaucratic monkey off her back at both ends of her life. She just can’t get on the good side of the establishment. In fact, she has a gift for drawing harassment upon herself. Her feud with the Feds spanned four decades from the sixties to the days of TSA, NSA and Homeland Security. Her persecution soars to precipitous heights. What is a grandmother to do when somebody is after her head? Well, WTF…

WHAT I’M DOING NOW! #RATERSNOTHATERS #RRBC

During a recent chatroom meeting at RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB, a certain someone (Amie O’Brien) yelled out “RATERS NOT HATERS”, and I hope you all know how hard it is to yell anything during a chatroom meeting!

Have you ever known someone that gets an idea in their heads (Nonnie Jules) and just won’t let it go? This idea rattled around a few days then RATERS NOT HATERS was born!

Well, I bet all y’all can’t guess what is being added to my resume?! If you guessed Co-Host of RATERS NOT HATERS you’d be right!

BEGINNING ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23rd at NOON CT, you are all invited to join us as we rate the books that we all want to read. We are some of our top readers in the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB and we post reviews on a pretty regular basis, so, who better to give our opinions?

With the internet trolls on the lose, you just can’t believe many of the reviews you read these days. I mean, these trolls are on a mission to seek and destroy the greatest of written works, just because they can. They’re not even real reviewers so we’ll just call them haters.

Enter our super trio of Reviewers! We will share the good and sometimes even our constructively informative views of a book, in hopes that it will help the author become better. No worries, though, we’re not here to tear anyone’s work down. Remember, we’re RATERS NOT HATERS!

Sound like a fun show? Have you ever (virtually) met Joy, Shirley and me? Well, you can bet your bottom dollar it will be!
