      This is my favorite of Lund s it s an older one, and may be out of print, but it s worth the effort to find it Growing up, when one of us would start re reading this book, it would end up getting passed around the entire family The only time I ever remember my mom staying up late to read, it was this book Eric Lloyd and his family have survived a nuclear holocaust, along with several other members of their small village Then the invaders come uniformed men in trucks who scoop them all up and tak [...]

      OK I am going for 3 1 2 Once I got into this book I was fascinated by it and was compelled to keep reading to see what new twist Eric, Travis, Nicole and the Major were going to take This book is based on an interesting idea that after a massive war and chaos, the ruling government resorts to forced compliance, disguised as freedom The most interesting thing of all to me ,is that it was written by Gerald Lund in 1983.I hope we are far away from the end of government as we know it Still, there is [...]

      I really want to love Gerald Lund s writing, but I just don t This book reads like a clean Vin Diesel movie The plotline is that predictable and the dialoge falls that flat I read it because a friend passed it to me and told me I would love it And then she kept asking me every time I saw her if I had read it or not There is nothing remotely literary about this book Nothing magic or compelling other than another dystopian storyline And it needed a good edit There are typos than I normally find i [...]

      Second time I ve read this book I needed an uplifting overthrow the big bad control freak gov t book after reading Mocking Jay A work less known by Gerald Lund it is definately a glory Set in a futuristic post nuclear WWIII a technology advanced civilization forces survivors to undergo a surgical implantation of a device that uses pain signals to force a person to submit to being good Sounds great right, a city where there is no bad behavior, except the people incontrol are not implanted and are [...]

    5. Kristopher Swinson on said:

      Finally, some fantastic fiction The development is morally responsible 166, 329 , and I certainly appreciated that he didn t even reproduce the only profanity referenced in the book 242 Lund makes it apparent, yet universally palatable, that religion is what makes good guys good 33, 127, 298, for example Family values are strongly implicit, as well as placed in an appropriate perspective birthrate s connection with true happiness 67, 86, 104 when aggression is permissible 179 and even that stalw [...]

      Morals There is no magic something that I detest with a passion , there is not rude or crass language, there is a romance but no sexual innuendo, and though there is action it s written well so there is little or no violence Style The main characters are honorable, moral, and worthy of emulation The villains, though not spine chilling, are evil and have evil motives There is a slight imbalance of dialog and action, but that is the only thing that I would have changed Value The book is thought pr [...]

    7. Cooper on said:

      I really liked this book I would recommend this book to anyone who loves futuristic utopia type books, and if you are looking for a good clean book this would be a great book to read I liked this book because the point of view was the one when the author knows everyone s thoughts, actions, and feelings It was really fun to read because during the book he would switch to different characters It didn t follow the same character the whole time and I really liked that One time in the book two of the [...]

      Our one successful office book club book The club unofficially ended when I was the only person to finish the book You d think library workers would read a lot , but alas we re in college I know Lund from his work in the Work the Glory series I ve never read them, but they looked imposing on my aunt s bookshelf Unfortunately I m very late on this review, so I can t remember my exact reasons for the 3 stars The plot dipped into the predictable at times, but I liked the subtle undertone of agency [...]

    9. Trillian on said:

      The Alliance is an engaging read It has developed characters, vivid scenes, fast pacing and well crafted backdrops The story deals with the moral issue of coercion versus freedom The dialogue can be cloying at times, but then, sappy sweet characters are refreshing compared to the cliche of cold, embittered characters that typically populate sci fi books It s not hard to read and children as young as 11 or so can enjoy it Plus, it has a cool cover.

    10. Bryson on said:

      WOW WOW WOW WOW AND DOUBLE WOW This book is absolutely amazing Definately one of my all time favorites It s written by Gerald Lund author of The Work and the Glory It s great It s in the future and a community that s chipped in so they can only do perfect things as in no crime, no hatred no ect or they get shocked It s overcoming this awful lifestile and gaining free agency AWESOME BOOK

    11. Jenny on said:

      Enjoyed this dystopian book written over 3 decades agoill great The topics of freedom, behavior conditioning, and government control are all central in this book The main character was easily likeable and I was rooting for him the whole time The last third was very action packed and exciting and then ended a bit abruptly for me.

    12. Maria on said:

      I was excited for this one, but what a clunker I love sci fi end of days books and this one had a great premise Lund s hokey dialogue and never ending back and forth between characters finally did me in I ll read 1984 to get the bad taste of The Alliance out of my mouth.

    13. Rachael Andersen on said:

      This is personally one of my favorite books I find this better than any of the controlling government books Very well written, and a great read if you are wanting to read a book This book keeps you on edge the whole time.

    14. Kaylee // Ourbookworlds on said:

      I overall really enjoyed the book and I m glad i read it One of the big problems i had with it though is With distopias you have so much world building and character development and i think trying to cram that all into one book made it a little bit overwhelming.

    15. Erin on said:

      I reread this book for about the 20th time I love it It is a super fun read and I would totally recommend it.

    16. Rachel on said:

      I m not usually one to jump into science fiction, but this one was really really good

    17. Rachel Ray on said:

      this is about as good as a book can get, I love it and will read it again and again its really truly a great book.

    18. Drew Graham on said:

      First things first, I am blown away by the number of positive, nay, GLOWING reviews of this book on here Are Mormon readers or, readers of Mormon fiction really that easy to impress AnywayThere was some kind of apocalypse A small group of God fearing survivors have banded together to create a small farming community in what used to be Star Valley, Wyoming When armed strangers in high tech vehicles and flashy blue and orange uniforms arrive unannounced and uninvited to the valley, the villagers a [...]

      This is the first book that I ever read that I think would actually be classified as a distopian plot I have fond memories of reading it as a child It had a bright orange cover and I can t even tell you how many times I read it Way too many to count It was my favorite I was really excited to get to read it again as an adult I m pretty sure I liked it as much as an adult as I did as a child.I like everything about this book I really like the characters I like Eric and his village I like the way t [...]

      The Alliance By Gerald N LundBook Review 8329 pages The Alliance by Gerald N Lund is extremely well written with many very interesting characters The characters are different from other books I ve read mostly because their world is very different then ours The main character, Eric Lloyd, fights very hard for what he believes in It takes a lot of courage to be different and stand out, and those are signs of a true hero, which Eric is Eric believes that freedom is very important, and tries to help [...]

    21. Amanda on said:

      A solid dystopian novel I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys F451, 1984, etc It feels a little dated with the names, pacing, and style, but I ve always loved a good Gerald N Lund read and this was a solid one for sure.

    22. David Slatten on said:

      Pretty good book It took me a bit to get into it but once I did, I was fairly riveted Interesting plot and believable characters that I grew close to I wouldn t call it one of Gerald Lund s best books but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

    23. Danielle Davis on said:

      It was fantastic I haven t read it in a while, but definitely one of my favorites

    24. Randee Wells on said:

      Easily one of my top 5 favorite books of all time Kept me intrigued and wanting So much integrity and adventure in one story

    25. Elaine Dransfield on said:

      Another dystonia story Frightening way to obtain controlling power Take away our right to choose.

    26. ReaderTurnedWriter on said:

      This is one of the best dystopian novels I ve read I especially loved the ending I also loved how big a part family played in it, especially with Eric and his sisters.
