Centrust Shift: The Book or The Party?

My friend Mark Satin has an excellent
review
of what is undoubtedly the first ‘radical middle’ political
novel: The
Shift
.

John
English?s first novel The
Shift
(2005) may be the poorest written novel I?ve ever read
from cover to cover… So why did I finish the 316 page book? in two days
flat?

If you believe that
our Earth and its inhabitants are in trouble; if you believe that the trouble
extends to (and in part emanates from) our souls; if you believe that creating a
better world means listening to and learning from everyone, and addressing our
fundamental problems in creative new ways; then this book expresses many of your
dreams.

It’s not Oliver Twist, but its
probably no worse than Atlas Shrugged, and (IMHO) makes a much more valid
point.
