Many people seek to destroy the way of life of everyone else to make up for the inadequate sense of righteousness in their own lives. People prefer their delusion of security and the belief that they would always be safe no matter how unhinged portions of the world might become around them. In the end, atrocities of small scale could quickly advance to greater ones. This is seen in the novel Terror Strikes by Joseph M. Lenard.
The book investigates different acts of terrorism on American soil through the eyes of Marten, the main character. He is both a journalist and a writer; he uses a story within a story, which results in a unique and enjoyable writing style. He writes about the terrorist attacks happening in America, how various groups are carrying out the attacks, and how the government handles the issue. The book highlights several issues, including religious conflicts. In this book, the conflict due to religious differences arises when Muslims fight against Christians and also against their Muslim counterparts. The journalist, in his research, learns more than he thought he would. Will he be able to save America?
This book contains two hundred and fifty-four pages. It is divided into eighteen parts. Some parts of the book are written from the third-person point of view, while others are written from the first-person point of view. The author uses both the past and present tenses throughout the book. This book has several themes, including war and conflict, terrorism, and religion. Although it contains several themes, the theme of war and conflict dominates it.
There are several things that I liked about the book. However, in this review, I'll only mention a few that I liked the most. First, the author's writing style is very admirable. I liked how he uses a simple vocabulary that makes it easy to understand the book with no struggle at all. I also liked how the author brought up the book within a book style of writing without bringing any confusion into the book, as the part of the book written by Marten had a different font to avoid confusion. Since I didn't find any grammatical errors while reading, this book was exceptionally well-edited.
There is nothing I disliked about this book. I, therefore, rate it four out of four stars. I recommend it to an audience that enjoys historical fiction novels. Those who like investigative stories will also enjoy reading this book.
