John Smith by Roland Hughes Review

Dystopian, Science Fiction
This is a post-polar-shift novel. You will challenge every assumption you have ever had, from crude oil to religion, while reading it. Fans of Babylon 5, Star Trek TNG, Battle Star Galactica (the new one) and classic science fiction writing will greatly enjoy the bountiful Easter Egg hunt. Consider for one second the possibility, then hang onto your mind with both hands while you take the ride. It’s okay to think about this book every time you fill up. Just look around you and notice the others thinking the same thing.

My Review
This story freaked me out a little bit. It reminded me of "Cell" by Stephen King where the technology causes you trouble. What if this book were true and all the what ifs in it were also true? The world as we know it would be extremely different. I often think about the Mayan calendar and wondered why they picked what they did. I was also nervous about my computer crashing on 1/1/2000. 
This was definitely a thought provoking book for me and I will be wondering about some what ifs for awhile.  
I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
