America Dies - When Based Upon Lies by Moswee M. Peach is a non-fictional political commentary based on the United States of America's current government. The author criticizes the policies of President Trump and describes the various controversies against him. He talks about the recent impeachment trial, his policies regarding the current pandemic, his behavior towards Russia, and so on. The author is particularly vocal about the alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential elections. Also, in the end, the author has compiled a set of actions that can be taken by the President if he wants to remodel the United States democracy into a dictatorship, which is quite intriguing but unnerving.
The best part of this book is unmistakably the dialogue. The author puts a lot of confidence and raw emotion behind his words, which can be felt in every sentence. Readers can genuinely understand the frustration he feels from the current government. He thinks that a change is necessary to make the U.S. a great nation again. Also, the frequent presence of light humor makes the dialogue engaging.
I have a couple of things to complain about in this book. Firstly, there is sometimes no connection between the chapters. Each chapter deals with different issues. Some issues are connected, but often they do not occur concurrently. For example, Chapters 7, 8, 15, and 22 are about Russia, but they are spread all over the book. Chapters 17 and 19 deal with the COVID 19 pandemic, but though chapter 18 has a few pandemic related thoughts, it is mostly about President Trump's habit of lying. The author should have addressed one topic at a time for a more apparent transition from one issue to another.
Secondly, I felt some chapters ended so abruptly that it remained lacking. For example, chapter 13 is a one-page chapter that speaks about an attorney. The chapter felt quite incomplete as a clear explanation was missing. The author should have made his point clearer by taking some more space.
I also found a few typos in this book. There are also some minor instances of borderline profanity. However, I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. Because, despite the complaints about the structure of the book, the content is informative and impressive. This book is a must-read for anyone who is voting in the United States presidential elections in 2020. The author puts forward his honest opinions about the government that has failed to rise to his expectations in the last four years. I recommend this book to all American citizens who plan to vote in U.S.A.'s upcoming presidential elections in 2020.
