Book Description

Aug. 25 2009
In the second decade of the twenty-first century the world is struck by two catastrophes, a new mini-ice age and, nearly simultaneously, a plague to dwarf all previous experiences. Rising out of the disaster is the character known to history as “Bandit Six” an American Army officer caught up in the struggle to rebuild the world and prevent the fall of his homeland—despite the best efforts of politicians both elected and military. The Last Centurion is a memoir of one possible future, a world that is a darkling mirror of our own. Written “blog-style,” it pulls no punches in its descriptions of junk science, bad strategy and organic farming not to mention all three at once.

1.0 out of 5 stars This author has written some great SF in the past Aug. 15 2014

Just a ultra right wing political treatise from a Tea Partyite...not at all what I expected. This author has written some great SF in the past. Sadly this book does not live up to expectations.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Last Ringo Novel I ever buy! Sept. 8 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Great science fiction invites the reader to think about the great moral and ethical quandaries of our time in the context of a mythical, futuristic or apocalyptic backdrop.

The Last Centurion is not great science fiction... nor is it middling action adventure... it is a bad episode of fox and friends masquerading as a novel, a pathetic collection of Hannity rants wrapped up in the addled bumbling of Limbaugh and the america right or wrong frothing of Dobbs... it is laughably stupid.

Here is the formula for the novel, and I am sorry I am not kidding:

1)Take any political issue...
2)Ask yourself what Rush/Hannity/O'Reilly/Dobbs would say...
3)That answer saves people from the plague!

Then:

1) Take the same political issue
2) Ask yourself what Clinton, Obama, or any educated person would say
3) That answer kills millions of stupid liberal elites from the plague

Sprinkle in a heavy dose of sexist male chauvinism, poorly concealed racism, open ethnocentrism and ignorant bigotry and repeat.

For example:
Health care - private for profit health care saves people from the plague... socialized medicine kills people from the plague

Christian charity saves people from the plague... Government incompetence kills people from the plague

Immigration - illegal chinese and mexican immigrants bring the plague to america... an america that should have known better and is being punished for not building fences

Sexual orientation - homosexuality kills people from the plague... good christian morals saves people from the plague

Farming - organic farming kills lazy stupid hippies...

4.0 out of 5 stars Right wing? Maybe, but many truths as well. March 24 2010
By McBrian
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. Maybe I am a right wing red neck, but John Ringo makes so many points that are bang on that it really highlights how divorced from reality many outspoken left wing commentators are. The blog style narrative is fun once you get used to it. Anyway, I bought the book and liked it so much I bought the audiobook as well.
