    One thought on “The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma

    1. Mike (the Paladin)

      WellI thought the concept sounded vaguely interesting. The entire topic is rife with political possibilities and I went into it wondering "which side" the book would come down on. I'll give it this, as much of that as there is it's done in a "different way".Did you ever see that commercial a few years ago that got so much attention. It shows the climate police arresting people for not having the right car (and implies for other environmental failings). Well that would be tame in this world. What [...]

      ARC provided courtesy of NetGalley.Imagine a world where homicidal hippies escalated the culture war to all-out war against the establishment and that those same fanatical hippies actually won and gained control over all of the Americas, now known as the Green States of America. This is the setting of Brian Herbert’s ecotopian, The Green Book of Chairman Rahma.The Green States of America is rife with hypocrisy originating from the Chairman himself who wears peace symbols but who thinks nothing [...]

      I'm glad my updates about this book didn't take. I was a little upset and spewing some vitriol. But the truth of the matter is that I didn't like it. Not one bit. The writing was ugh. I can't even find word for it. It was dull. The book was full of never ending descriptions unnecessary to the story. That's all in addition to the preaching the author does about his opposition to environmental concerns. He likens environmentalists and their method of governing to communist China and the evils they [...]

      Review by ChelseaI want to say it was an interesting analysis of an oppressive society. I want to say it was unique for exploring environmentalist extremism. But I've also gotta cop to some truth. I never would have picked this book up if it wasn't a free ARC (advanced reading copy) to review. And I was willing to look beyond the disengaging title and really like this book. Seriously, I'll quote myself: "the title is a bit goofy, but it's got a cool description and it's from Tor, so I'll give it [...]

      Possible spoilers ahead.The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma was my first book by Brian Herbert and will likely be my last. The book begins interestingly, if not a little silly and weird. In the close future, an army of environmentalists overthrow the government and form a dictatorship that prioritizes its citizens behind nature. This book explores a few decent themes along the lines of classism, sexism, environmentalism, liberalism, etc. It just doesn't explore them well. The characters are [...]

    6. Bubba Yarkfowitz

      Really - I wanted to like this. It had a lot of pull. Sci-fi, Brian Herbert, Green Revolution, morebut honestly, it ended up feeling like a lot of preaching, climate guilt-tripping. It certainly spoke to my generation with references to revolutionary-era Berkeley and the free thinking mindset that grew from that time but I guess I just wasn't ready for climatological bible-thumping. Ah well

    7. Brianne Reeves

      The plot of this book is so slow, and doesn't progress. The narration is repetitive and the characters are flat. The last forty pages pick up pace, but are so rushed that they aren't impactful at all.

    8. Dave

      I thought the premise of this book sounded interesting but after wading through 165 pages of the 412 page book I became impatient that nothing exciting or interesting seemed to be developing. Gave up reading this one.

      **I received a beautiful copy of this book compliments of the author, VJ Books, and the First Reads Program**Joss Stuart is a hardworking and loyal government employee who faithfully serves the future Green States of America. He completes his assignments thoroughly and follows the Little Green Book closely. In return, he leads a comfortable, almost civilized, life. This changes, however, when he unintentionally becomes a threat to the government. Will he sacrifice himself for the good of his co [...]

      Most of the story is a horrifying vision of what it would be like if the radical environmentalists "conquered" America. The result is indeed happy from the extreme green point of view: most of America has been reverted to something close to natural and most of the population has moved into modern compact cities with minimal impact on nature.However, to do this requires a ruthless leader with pure vision and a supporting political structure that combines the worst of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao. The [...]

      The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma by Brian Herbert is set in 2061 where the most radical environmentalists have conquered the corporations and taken control of the western hemisphere. These are activists who believe that planet Earth is more important than people. As a result, people are confined to reservations and the remainder of the land is greenformed to back to its pristine origins. If you imagine this can not end well, you might be right. This novel is noteworthy from a writing poin [...]

    12. Fred P

      This is a very fun read. The author keeps you guessing as to who is on the moral high ground as environmentalists battle against corporate interests. In the Green States of the Americas, it is not enough to recycle, sometimes you have to be recycled! Building on the discovery of Dark Energy, scientists in the Green revolution have created a technology that dissolves human creations and reseeds the results with natural life. A long-term project to restore the continent to a pristine, natural stat [...]

      I was fortunate to receive this book as an advance copy through a Good Reads giveaway. I was keen to read it as I have always been a fan of both his father's and Brian's. It is an excellent read which kept me engaged almost to end. Without being negative or giving out any spoilers, I enjoyed roaming through this different take on a dystopian future in which the Environmentalists/Greenies/Anarchists win and end up running the rest of the America's while the rest of the world continues the current [...]

      The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahmaby Brian HerbertThe world has been saved, a wild revolution, formed by environmentalists, has seized control of the United States. It's a bright new green green world.or so it seems.A world dominated by the Dictator Chairman Rahma, on the surface seems idyllic, but great dictators who rule with complete and absolute authority, will be challenged. In a world ruled by complete censorship and an iron will there is an increasing amount of descent. In this case [...]

      This book was 1984/Animal Farm/Atlas Shrugged/Brave New World meets Dune meets the Al Gore enviro-nuts. In a dystopian future the had left greens take over the Americas and institute a police state reminiscent of of Stalin and the gulag. Chairman Rahma is a Stalin/Mao hybrid who kills millions in the name of peace and ecology. In the name of ecology, whole families are killed for having plastic shopping bags.Meanwhile a member of the green army suffers an accident that fuses him with dark enregy [...]

      ARC provided courtesy of Tor.Starting off with a very interesting premise, a green dystopia, Brian Herbert paints a tragic picture of environmentalism run rampant. Though he starts off well, he takes too long to paint his picture, leaving the book with an odd sense of pacing that seems to flounder somewhat in the middle. The ending attempts to pick up speed, and introduces several interesting twists, but overall this book felt like nothing but setup for the real story, hinted at in the final pag [...]

    19. Alexandria

      This book started off really well with great details and an interesting storyline and then in the last 20 pages it seems like Herbert just wanted to be done with the book so he quickly kills off most of characters in such a rush. And I don't understand the point of General Bane's story at all. Aside from building voleers and then rebuilding them he doesn't do much for the entire story, and because of a hole accidentally left in the ground there's nearly nothing left of his army of machines and p [...]

      This had an interesting perspective. It did make me think a bit about those in power, be they governments or religions. Unfortunately it was too slow paced and somewhat boring. It is obviously intended to be part of a detailed future world and series of books. I understand the aim of a writer is to sell stories and there is no better way to sell a lot of books than to make it into a series, but if you don't make the first book a story all its own, it fails to hook me into reading more. Work hard [...]

    21. Julia

      I wanted to like this book. I am a huge fan of Brian Herbert's Dune books and I thought the concept for The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma was certainly fascinating. However, the book never lived up to its potential. It was dull, characters were uninteresting, and plot devices were overly predictable. That being said, I found the world created for the novel to be interesting. Good concept, bad execution.

    22. Ernest Spoon

      Well, what can I sayInteresting if muddled novel that started out promising, kind of lost its way and ended with everybody, nearly everybody, getting run over by a bus.For such a slim volume there were too many subplots that got started going somewhere and ended tied up with a world-wide, man-made catastrophe-- an ironic ending as Chairman Rahma's revolution was to save the Earth from a man-made ecological catastrophe.

    23. Laura Roslin

      The book fell flat. I gave up on it 3/4 of the way. The idea, concept & title are interesting, but the actual book doesn't deliver.I only read this far because I hoped that it would get better. It didn't.

    24. Cody

      As the other reviewers stated, this book is bad. All around bad. Given a heavy editing job it could've been good, but in it's current form it was hard to complete. I'm also hoping there isn't a sequel, though it ended in a way that leaves that as an option.

    25. Michael

      I wanted to like this more than I did. The idea and plot are interesting and move along well, but it all comes to a rather hackneyed last minute conclusion which I don't really buy. Overall, it just seems like he ran out of steam.

    26. Susan

      I have never not finished a book. Until this one. I couldn't force myself through it. Made it to 1/4 of the way through before giving up. Life is too short to read boring books for leisure.
