I love this book. I just finished it for the third time and it only took me 2 days. Juberry gave me this novel as a birthday gift and I'm glad I have my own copy now.
The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic America and follows Eric Lloyd in the discovery of a 'Utopian' civilization where crime, anger, and hate have been eliminated. The Alliance, as it is called, implants everyone with a computer chip that regulates their emotions. Appalled at this practice, Eric vows to destroy the Alliance and set the people free.
This novel is a great science fiction read - lots of action and entertaining plot twists. Lund does a fantastic job portraying the horror of this civilization and the reader is instantly supporting the main character. The characters are good, but they don't really stand out in my memory as being exceptionally unique. But they serve their purpose to tell the story.
It's a little hard to find this book because Gerald N. Lund is only well-known in a specific niche. But if you can find it, I highly recommend you read The Alliance.
