Publisher's Summary

The sequel to Agenda 21, from number-one New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck.

"I knew those men were our enemies, but they, like everyone else in the Republic, were nothing more than servants. Rule followers. They had no choice. But I did. I had a choice and I made it. I knew then and there that, no matter what happened, I would never go back. Never."

It was once named America, but now it is just "the Republic". Following the worldwide implementation of a UN-led program called Agenda 21, the once-proud people of America have become obedient residents who live in barren, brutal Compounds and serve the autocratic, merciless Authorities.

Citizens mainly keep their heads down and their mouths shut - but Emmeline is different. When the Authorities took her mother away, she started questioning the world around her. What happened to her mom? Why is everyone confined to grim living spaces and made to eat the same food cubes every day? Why was her own baby taken from her to be raised in the Children's Village? And are the rumors that somewhere out beyond the fence live those who got away during the Relocations - the so-called shadow people - really true?

When Emmeline's questions lead to the realization that she will never see her child again, she decides to escape the Compound with her partner David and their baby Elsa. Fleeing the armed enforcers of the Earth Protection Agency, and facing the unknown for the first time in their lives, Emmeline and David run into the shadows in the desperate hope of finding something they'd only heard stories about from those who'd lived before the Relocations: freedom.

critical thinking type of book

The agenda 21 sequel was a great book that spoke about an idea about a future where the government controlled people and use the environment as an excuse. It shed light on an issue that could become bigger in the future. I recommend this book for anyone who is interested in politics, fiction, and likes to think critically.

Entertaining, but not fantastic!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It's a god book. Entertaining and as much as I believe some area want to push the UN Agenda 21 program. I think the U.S. will collapse long before they could ever round up people (voluntarily at least) in this country.While entertaining, not very likely tHe US population would stand for it....although look at all the idiots still standing behind the incompetent Obama and his administration of lies, executive orders and tantrums....so maybe there is about 50% of this country stupid enough to go live in a commune (for the greater good) a line that makes me want to puke!"Praise be the republic"

Who was your favorite character and why?

Emmeline of course!

Which scene was your favorite?

When Steven got shot finally!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really. The narration was really good though! In fact it probably was more enjoyable in audio format than in print thanks to the narrators.

Any additional comments?

Good book, entertaining but not a Great book.I think the first Agenda 21 book was better.

Half the narration was good.

The female narrator, who performed about half the book, was a ho-hum performer. I had trouble getting past her to enjoy the story.

Excellent Series

I must say that it took me less than a week to listen to both books. Growing up I didn't take an interest in history nor politics. I am now in my 40's and more awake and alert today by our crumbling nation and quite disgusted. this country was founded on GOD and freedom, while we all sit and watch our freedoms being taken away a little at a time. Thank you Glenn Beck for educating the American people. I will read more of your books in the near future.

Annoying

I liked the 1st book, but this one became so annoying as the main character constantly called the shots over her husband and depicted him as a weak man with little intelligence. As if we don't get this message about men constantly in mainstream entertainment. She's the hero, provider, fighter, etc. while he does nothing? Give me a break. I'm a woman and to me it sounds a lot like feminist propaganda and I'm completely turned off by it. I'm surprised Glenn Beck's name is on this.

Great story following the 1st book.

I loved it. I found that finishing the journey that started in the 1st book was a wonderful experience. I am glad that this issue has came to light and things good things are be done to stop the Agenda feom taking hold in our towns and local levels.

political gimmick

There was so much potential with the setting and the author completely failed to capitalize on any of it. The characters were zero dimensional.

Disappointment

What would have made Agenda 21: Into the Shadows better?

Nothing - it was a bad book

What do you think your next listen will be?

Likely... Liberal Fascism

What three words best describe Jeremy Lowell and January LaVoy ’s performance?

Meh - I've come to appreciate Jeremy Lowell as he narrates many of Beck's other works - the story did not provide the voice actors opportunity to excel.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Nope.

Any additional comments?

I've listened to a number of Beck's books and this is the first REAL disappointment. I wish I hadn't spent the time listening to this...

It was a mix between Hunger Games and Divergent with poor ties to freedom...
