Election 2064 by Scott McDermott is a fascinating look into the future of American politics. This book follows several characters as they navigate a political landscape that, though rather grim, isn’t vastly different from today’s. It certainly is a lot more treacherous, however. From noble politicians with lofty ideas for fixing a broken country, to super-rich sponsors with their own agendas in mind, Election 2064 follows them all for a full and unbridled perspective. The political minefield includes terrorist attacks, assassination attempts, and well timed entries into the presidential race. In this installment (book 1) no one person emerges as the front runner; rather we are told the story from the beginning of each presidential race.

With exciting plot twists and a story that weaves together effortlessly, Election 2064 shows us, with a frightening parallel to current reality, just how things could go in a divided nation. It is quite interesting, definitely not another political bore. It is action packed and certainly well written. The personalities are vivid, the stories exciting, compelling and steeped in reality. This was an easy and enjoyable read. I especially liked the vivid descriptions of the day's technology. They helped to cement the era in my mind and create a realistic view of the world in fifty or so years down the road. It does end with a bit of a cliff hanger so reading book two is a definite must. However, I certainly did not feel short changed by the story. It was complete enough to stand alone and was a delightful read. I look forward to the release of book two in the series.

You won't be able to put this book down!

From twist & turns that will have you flipping back the pages to weaving political issues of today into 2064 society and describing an election not seen since the birth of our nation, this book doesn't leave much to be desired. There's no doubt, if you read this book, you will be await Book Two with great anticipation.

What a great read! With twists and turns in the plot, unexpected action and real characters this new novel by McDermott reminded me very much of a Clive Cussler read. Well done and well worth the buy.

Really enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next installment to come out! Politics and futuristic/sci-fi books are not normally my favorite genres to read, but this story was engaging and kept me hooked with lots of action and quite a few surprising twists. Highly recommended!
