National Parks by Rolf Margenau is a satire on the current as well as a possible progressively worse future political climate in the United States. National Parks is alternatively funny and sarcastic, with the grim underlying reality of the current state of politics. The novel is set in a semi-dystopian world where the government has run out of funds and is now privatizing the national parks in the country and literally selling them to the highest bidder. The story follows the main characters across continents, but the underlying essence of the book revolves around the theme of how the U.S. government could be heading towards unknown disasters due to debt and a global crisis.
National Parks by Rolf Margenau is a thought-provoking novel, although a lot of it is disguised under light-hearted humor. Still, Rolf’s passion for the subject comes through and definitely provides food for thought. Along with a corrupt U.S. government, the book also showcases America’s national parks and the beauty of nature. This is a fairly short read and I liked the fact that this book comes off as written from the heart with a genuine feeling and passion for the subject on the author’s part. The writing and the plot together make this a worthwhile read.
