go here Now a plan emerges. She has one chance. I'm not going to give away too much here but it is a pretty exciting story. I thought "The Overton Window" got too bogged down in explaining politics. Those problems have been fixed in this novel. Religious people seem real. The bad guys seem bad but not crazy, nor too wordy.
This is a violent book. Bad things happen in it. It's messy but it has a purpose. I don't recall any cursing but there must have been some. I just don't recall. I liked the ending. I'd read this book again. Sep 24, Jill rated it liked it Shelves: I read this without reading The Overton Window.
American patriots struggle to survive while attempting to non-violently fight the loss of freedom. I didn't feel like I missed anything by not reading the first book. The writing largely avoids repetitions and wandering details. I appreciate that a story which presents the Christian faith as a good thing also shows life as it is - kindness, honor, crudity, and violence alike - without devolving into sentiment, platitudes, or sermons. I especially lik I read this without reading The Overton Window. I especially liked that there was a list of sources at the end of the book so the reader can research whether the fictional story has a factual basis.
This book contains smoking and swearing. Jun 10, Eric rated it really liked it. Really enjoyed this book once I got a little bit into it. At the beginning I had a hard time getting back into it and some parts seemed a little confusing with the way you were thrown right back into the action not quiet where it left off in the last book, but once I got past that I really liked it. The ending seemed a bit rushed and with as much as the characters seemed to be running from "the man", the ending didn't convey the same feeling.
It was almost like they weren't worried at all about Really enjoyed this book once I got a little bit into it.
It was almost like they weren't worried at all about being caught even though they really should have been with all that had happened in the rest of the book. That just seemed very odd to me. Overall a really good book and good continuation of the series. Looking forward to the next in the series.

As the fight grows more desperate, it is possible to read between the lines and see what is actually happening today and those behind the destruction of America into a socialist state.

This is the sequel to the Overton Window. The story picks up the trail of Molly Ross. She is a young patriot who exposed an undercover war for the fate of America. She has been labeled a traitor and is being hunted down.
During the chase to capture her, she is blinded.
Her lack of sight hinders her leadership of her small band of patriots. With out much outside support she and her group take a stand against the financial warlords attempting to control the fate of the US.

Nov 13, Larry rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this book much more than Beck's introduction book, The Overton Window. This is a sequel and is much more interesting and has a much better plot and story line. Both of Beck's books are full of political information and situations that could at some point be quite relavent to our country's situation and future.

Mar 07, James rated it really liked it. Listened to on CD. This is the sequel to Overton Window. I haven't read Overton for several years and this picks up right where it leaves off. I was a little lost in the beginning, but got up a few chapters in with a recap.

It was a little slow to start but actually picks up and has a great climax and end. If you liked Overton, you will like this. Aug 01, Rebecca Dean rated it it was amazing. Fabulous sequel to The Overton Window. Same characters and new ones introduced. A quick read, I finished this book very quickly, couldn't wait to see what is up for this wonderful nation of ours. I hope people start paying attention really soon. Thank you, Glenn, you did it again!!! Aug 10, Carolyn Wagner rated it really liked it.
My opinion of Glenn Beck varies depending on the day, but I do enjoy his fiction books. This is a good little series if you enjoy thrillers and conspiracy theories with a basis in fact. He includes a section at the end of the book with footnotes of sorts of his sources for many of the more "that couldn't happen here" things in the book that could, indeed, happen. You do need to read this mini-series in order or you will be lost. Good sequel to The Overton Window. While it is a work of fiction, it is structured around many factual scenarios and circumstances.
It is useful to ponder the consequences of government overreach and corruption. Aug 25, Kong Kong rated it it was ok. Hard to keep characters in mind. Not much action or suspense to draw you to the next chapter. Quality of writing was mostly okay. The ending was a complete letdown. Felt like it must have been rushed.
Glenn Beck's heart-pounding sequel to his #1 bestselling novel The Overton Window The last battle for freedom is under way. An unlikely band of ordinary. Editorial Reviews. About the Author. Glenn Beck, the nationally syndicated radio host and dynipalo.tk: The Eye of Moloch eBook: Glenn Beck: Kindle Store.
Will likely not purchase the remaining book in the series. A fitting conclusion, albeit, the door is open, so-to-speak, for yet a third installment to the Overton Window story. Much more in the genre of "thriller" is The Eye of Moloch than was The Overton Window as the latter story really set the conspiracy theory base for the whole story. New character introductions and development are key in this installment, especially if there is to be a third, which I certainly hope there will be. The stage is set, at least I believe it is, to find some way now to activate a vigorous patriotic movement and move our great country back toward the constitutional republic our Founding Fathers gave us.
I truly hope that Glenn Beck and his 'associate writers' have a third Overton Window story in the works. Good thriller. And eerily analogous to current events today. Thing is, you know this book has been in the works for at least the past year or two. Either Beck is some sort of seer or he is so informed and in tune to the workings of this government and what they will attempt to do it's scary. I go with the latter. Beck knows what our government is capable of, and the manipulative people behind the scenes who want to transform the United States.
Who'd have thought many of the elements in this "fac Good thriller. Who'd have thought many of the elements in this "faction" sequel would actually come to fruition in real life these last several months? Just pick a current scandal today there are many and you've hit upon one of the ingredients that constitute the Eye of Moloch. This book is relatively fast-paced and consistently engaging.
We see several of the same characters as before plus many new ones. The writing is good and the storyline is interesting. I was shocked at some of the turn of events, as in I didn't see them coming. I won't give them away here. There's a few things that I wanted to see more of or had a hard time completely digesting. The character and relationship development of and between Molly and Noah was lacking.
Well, more so with Molly. I realize this book is more plot driven than character driven so that wasn't the point. But I found myself craving more "Molly and Noah time", delving into what they conversed about while together and what they were thinking, and we didn't get that. I also couldn't wrap my head around year-old Molly Ross being the leader of this movement, now that her mother was killed at the end of the first book. I didn't feel the political power and influence she was supposed to have had. And the fact that she was physically blinded by an accident at the beginning of the novel, but still somehow remains at the forefront of everything kinda had me scratching my head.
How can one just find her way back through tunnels and into the chair in front of the web cam AND find the right buttons to broadcast her message to the world Noah on the other hand is one of my favorite characters and I was glad to see him rise in the ranks. He has always had the smarts, talent, and know-how to be a natural leader The speech he gives at his father's memorial service is priceless. I hope to see a third installment This sequel to "The Overton Window" is, as promised by the author, better than its predecessor. The good guy characters are more likeable even though they are the same as in the previous book.
Molly Ross, for example, who was a cypher in "Overton," comes a little more alive here. Not very much, but anything is a great improvement. I suppose it helps that Beck and his team that produced this novel, had to work harder with a character who became blind at the end of the previous book.
It also helps This sequel to "The Overton Window" is, as promised by the author, better than its predecessor. It also helps that she is no longer trying to fool anyone about who she is, and most importantly she is no longer fooling the reader. The title refers to the mythical god's eye that sees all, and to the attempt by governments in our own age to develop the capacity to spy on everyone all the time. As with "Overton," if you do not wish to believe that anything in this novel could really happen, then do not read the material at the end that tells of the real life events that inspired much of the book.
Come to think of it, you might also want to avoid newspapers since the mainstream press has lately taken notice of the surveilance society in which we now live. Also better developed here than in the prequel are the heroes, Noah Gardner and Hollis. Hollis was very real and likeable in the first novel, but we only got a glimpse of him. We never knew that his first name is Thomas or that he generally goes by Thom.
Here he becomes a major character and is likely to be the favorite of many readers. I thought that the contents of the letter from Noah's mother to his father did not rise to its importance as a turning point in the plot. The old videos of his mother that Noah later discovers make a bit more plausible impact. This sequel also works because there is more action than in the first book. Jan 03, Jody rated it liked it.
There are many who will dismiss this book simply because it is associated with Glenn's name. There are others who will dismiss it simply because it is fiction and so can't be true. Still others will see it only as right-wing conspiracy theory. But remember: much truth is dismissed for many reasons. We live in a land with an ever-increasing government, and and ever-decreasing freedoms. Not only because of political corruption, which is rampant, but because of general apathy on the part of the citi There are many who will dismiss this book simply because it is associated with Glenn's name.
Not only because of political corruption, which is rampant, but because of general apathy on the part of the citizenry. Many people simply don't care what happens as long as they can keep believing it isn't happening. All evil needs to succeed is for good men to do nothing. Today, we live fully in the sentiment that "I can't make a difference. One reason we all believe it is that our government is so big, and so corrupt, that anyone who truly speaks out is quickly labeled and forgotten.
And those who try to do something are put down even faster. A revolution is coming. But what sort of revolution has yet to be decided. And what side the American people are on may end up shocking the world. We are already seen as spoiled, self-indulgent, fat, and lazy. Perhaps we deserve what we get. This book was significantly better than its predecessor, The Overton Window. The characters were more fleshed out and the plot flowed better. It's a novel of the extremely near future and I fear that it may quickly become dated as a result.
That is assuming that the events do not come to pass. Some of the events and things in the book may seem far-fetched, but there is an afterword that lists what already exists and what was taken from the headlines or the well-hidden back pages. The afterword This book was significantly better than its predecessor, The Overton Window. The afterword is too extensive for comfort. Whether or not one likes this book will no doubt depend on how one feels about what is happening to the United States.
If one believes, as I do, that this nation is on its knees, gasping out its dying breath, you will respond to the message even if it depresses you at times. If you are in that group that believes that things have never been better and the nation is finally getting its legs under it, then you will find the book to be an seemingly endless string of mad conspiracy theories.
If you are in the former group, I recommend the book highly as there is an underlying positive message. If you are in the latter group, don't read the book. It is better for everyone if you remain blissfully ignorant for as long as possible. Less a novel for entertainment as it is libertarian propaganda, Eye of Moloch is Glenn Beck's latest underwhelming attempt at "faction" as he likes to call it. Imagine Al Gore writing a thriller about the fight against global warming. If you're a die-hard liberal you might like that sort of thing The novel started off promisingly enough, with a violent ambush scene and the heroes being threatened by a rather nasty white supremacis Less a novel for entertainment as it is libertarian propaganda, Eye of Moloch is Glenn Beck's latest underwhelming attempt at "faction" as he likes to call it.
The novel started off promisingly enough, with a violent ambush scene and the heroes being threatened by a rather nasty white supremacist group. My eyebrows were raised, as the violence and foul language were out of place in a Beck book. Pretty soon the plot changed to a more PG-rated romp of good constitutionalists versus evil progressives. Also odd that Beck would name this book The Eye of Moloch, as it is never referenced in the novel, and only hardcore Beck devotees or biblical scholars would even know what the hell that means. The ghost writer, Jack Henderson, is regarded as a talented man.
My guess is that kowtowing to Beck and Co. Apr 07, Mike Emett rated it liked it. I was hoping to give this a higher rating given that I love just about anything from Beck.
However, this book was slow in the beginning and would slow down in other parts. Despite the flaws, some of my own doing, the message is perfect. This 'series' of a near future America is both shocking I was hoping to give this a higher rating given that I love just about anything from Beck. And in many ways it has to be unfulfilling. The committed Beck fans probably wonder at some level when the apocalyptic scenario for which they bought all those gold coins and survival seeds will actually happen.
The die-hards can get a vicarious thrill seeing what it would be like if the media and the government actively conspired against the Constitution and the people who love it.
