Wow I would hate to live in that future, it's crazy because you have to get permission for going to a different state. The book I am not sure if I like it or not, it's definitely different, and the pledge of allegiance is very strange. So far I am not sure if I like any of the characters at all. Jackson the main guy character is ok, but so far he isn't really blowing me away. And the President of the United States is really creepy and I bet he's tyrant ( sorry if it's spelled wrong) as well. And I am not sure how I feel about Jackson's wife Courtney, I am not really liking her so far, so hopefully that will change.
I did feel bad for Jackson for something that he had to do, but he really had no choice in the matter.
