The Disclosure Files, Volume 1
By: Guy Lozier
This book is a bit conspiracy theory, sci-fi, historical fiction, with a little of true facts thrown in. I had hoped for more factual history, but when I let go of my
original expectations it became an adventure for me. I kept listening to see where this would end.
The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Michael Kinzie's voice was pleasant to listen to.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
A jumbled mess
While the idea of mixing genres might have sounded appealing at first, it quickly dissipates as this book descends into a spiral of nonsense. First of all, the purported Custer story accounts for perhaps less than a quarter of the time (the only reason I even chose it). The bulk of the book is spent either on a science fiction thread, which is not as cute as it thinks, or a conspiracy thread, which is not as clever or sardonic as it thinks. Which leads to a bizarre apologia of Custer as a victim of political mind control, which is untenable at best, even for a work of historical fiction. But what's worse, even though I'm almost certain it wasn't the intention of the author, it essentially gives a back of the hand to the Lakota, Arapaho and Cheyenne, who presumably could never have defeated the 7th Cavalry but for the evil machinations of Ulysses Grant. I'll give it two stars because sci-fi fans might like parts, and conspiracy folks will enjoy some of it, and a decent bit of the true history is essentially on point. It's just not that cohesive a piece though.
