Absolutely breathtaking. I’ve never read a book like this before, I loved it! I couldn’t put it down after I read the first page. It’s a short read and enjoyable. It reminds me of a dark Russian novel with subtle philosophical messages. – Amazon Review
A young man without meaning in life decides to take his life. Before he commits the act, an opportunity surfaces that delays his fate. Struggling with the disillusionment of reality, Harlan expects to discover something through a charismatic communist sympathizer convinced, by Harlan, to run for public office.
As the years go by, they form a formidable alliance and allow nothing, including ethics, to stand in their way to acquire power. The power hierarchy is profound, with many interlacing strata the two men need to ascend, all to ameliorate the oppressed with a cooperative association of Peoplekin. Their Machiavellian tactics provide a semblance of hope to the American people who are more than willing to give up their freedoms for a simple life.
A traumatic event emancipates one of the men from their austere disposition, which compels forgiveness and the restoration of individual sovereignty.
About the Author:
Much of Ambrose’s experience derives from his protracted mission set overseas that permeates his writings to reach new intellectual depths, not at all common in modern authors. The solemn and profound honesty in Social Expectations begs readers to consider what they know about life as his writing provokes a dark and sullen theme of honor, defeat, and death.
