REVIEW × MZINES.CO.UK Ò Neil Jopson

It has been decades since the successful Revolution installed communist governments in Britain and Europe A cold war exists between the commun. This propaganda pamphlet because that s what it is rather than bearing any resemblance to a novel is based on a what if situation The premise is that a revolution took place in Britain at the same time as it did in Russia in 1917 but the events that are described are supposed to have happened in 1989 by way of a 1953 PrologueThe problem is that it doesn t work in any way not even as anti Communist propaganda What Jopson does is take totally unconnected incidents from history adds a few snide comments about the changing of place names creates characters who have seen through the propaganda surrounding the population but at the same time working for that propaganda machine but want to subvert it from within throws in a evil assassin and for good measure an honest but soon to be disillusioned army intelligence officer All stereotypes and not very interesting ones at thatThe only good thing to say about this book is that it s mercifully short only 64 pages long I don t know if Jopson s idea is to emulate Dickens and produce his opus in small chunks perhaps eventually arriving at a conclusion but if so he s going the wrong way about itInstead of setting the scene introducing a plot and developing character he falls into the trap of just throwing in comments that reflect his own ideology and anti communist prejudices It s a diatribe pretending to be a serious approach to how history might have been differentIf he was serious in writing something that might be in any way interesting he would have to edit even this short pamphlet omitting his disgust at the changing of names of railway stations personal prejudices etc but then he would probably be down to ten pages Perhaps the best advice to give Jopson would be that he should read a few novels to see that the skill in presenting a work that people might want to read is by not just throwing comments into a mix without any contextAlthough I know this goes against the general tone expected of a review but sometimes things are so bad it s impossible to gloss around the conclusion This is a total mess

This is the first installment in Soviet Britain and I received an advanced readers copy in exchange for an honest reviewFrom the synopsis It has been decades since the successful Revolution installed communist governments in Britain and Europe A cold war exists between the communist nations and the capitalist states led by the North American Alliance Unknown to Karl and his friends there are people who want to force a change in the world order and they do not care who they hurt in order to get what they wantIn the first installment we are immediately thrown into the action as a horrible crime takes place leaving Karl and his friends in a very peculiar situation I do not want to add as I would prefer not to hide the review because of spoilers Throughout their fight for survival and escape we get to find out about the alternate history in which the author is setting his story These snippets sometimes leaves us out of the action a bit long at times but are necessary to not leave the reader hanging and rest assured not everything is explained there is a lot to find out for oneself which I like Another nice touch is that the novel is set in and around south London in areas I know uite wellThis is very much a scene setter with a healthy amount of action thrown in I have since read part 2 and 3 in this series and this installment makes a great introduction to them and trust me the story gets even betterIf you like alternate histories in the 20th century and fast paced action I d encourage you to check out Soviet Britain Blood Parade
