John Landis, an avid reader of Hemingway and Jack London, has completed his first book "Big Brother Revisited": a gripping and potent exploration of political science, philosophy, and independence.
Landis says about his work: "As a self-described science and technology nut, I have combined my passion for all things scientific and my love of fiction into a writing style that is uniquely my own."
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, John Landis’s poignant tale reminds us that when the government rules unwisely, it's up to the people to change it for the better...
After falling deeply indebted to China, the United States government realizes it must do something to regain its glory. In an ironic twist of events, the only way for America to remain a global superpower is to ally themselves with poorer countries, thus creating a New World Order. America halts its development while other nations catch up. In addition to other invasive new laws, the men of America are forced to have vasectomies, thus allowing the government to define how many children a family is allowed to have.
Jeremy Barnes is a Child of the New Millennium. He has spent his entire life under this New World Order. Despite being a part of the system, Jeremy is dissatisfied with the status quo and often finds himself on the wrong side of the law. He does his best to blend in until the fate of his personal life is no longer within his control and is left in the powerful hands of an oppressive government.
