    One thought on “Chasing Liberty”

    1. "Chasing Liberty" is a realistic, engrossing and incredibly well-told novel set in a future society that has wiped out all traces of family, freedom, heritage, and Christianity. Babies are conceived unnaturally in scientifically precise breeding facilities, and once born never know whom their parents are. Children are raised in institutions, separate from adults, brainwashed with lies their care-takers tell them. Each person's future is decided by an all-controlling government. The words "God" a [...]

    2. Under the rule of the Regimen in futuristic Aldonia, life and love are separated. God and family are eradicated. Freedom and privacy are non-existent. Or are they?While the Regimen Custodia Terra has preserved Mother Earth, saving it from the pox of humanity, it has rationed life and personal freedom, creating a morally-bankrupt but compliant society. For Liberty, born of a breeder and raised in age-appropriate governmental facilities, even that cannot extinguish the spark of life within her. By [...]

    3. 4.5 stars for a story so compelling, I had to finish it even though it was not a pleasant experience. I've never liked the dystopian genre, but this one is so suspenseful and feels so real, it was like watching a bad accident happening. I couldn't NOT watch, though my heart was in my throat. If you like dystopian, you'll love this book, but be forewarned it ends on a cliffhanger so you'll want to read the next one. I love how family and faith are so pivotal in this story and how horrible life be [...]

    4. Chasing LibertyBy Theresa LindenWhen each of us imagines a flourishing future society, I think it's safe to say that each of us may imagine something slightly different from the other. The reason for the differences in our visions could stem from the fact that each of us values particular parts of society over others. In Chasing Liberty, Theresa Linden shares a dystopian possibility of a future society with her readers that takes us knee-deep into adventure.Chasing Liberty is told from the point [...]

    5. This dystopian Catholic YA novel by Theresa Linden is the first book in her Liberty series for older teens. This novel provides a fascinating look into a future world where religion has been eliminated. What I love about this book is the concept that God would still reach us and communicate with us even if we had never been told about Him.The main character, Liberty, has grown up in a world void of families and faith. But she has been guided through her life by an inner voice she refers to as he [...]

    7. 4.5 of 5 HeartsIf you are looking for a dystopia book that you can get lost in from the beginning, look no further. This book captivated me from the moment I started reading it. It's a fast-paced rollercoaster ride that leaves the reader on their toes as the story unfolds.Liberty had me holding my breath one moment and growling at her not to do what she was about to do the next. There are so many twist and turns that the author has us going down as Liberty and Redrick defy the controlling govern [...]

    8. Chasing Liberty is set at some point in the future, after "The Regimen," (a cradle to grave series of it takes a village style programs on steroids) has taken control of America and the world. The Regimen's goal is to protect the earth, wildlife and nature. This is done at the expense of humanity. Human beings have been deemed a detriment to the god of earth. Humans have no rights, and their procreation is strictly forbidden unless authorized by the Regimen. Each human being is created by new go [...]

    9. Chasing Liberty by Theresa Linden is a futuristic look at what our culture might become if we keep on the same trajectory as we are presently heading. Though I dearly hopes we have enough sense and compassion to avoid such a catastrophe, I can connect the dots which drew the picture Linden is pointing to. As in the books, 1984 and Brave New World, where the authors pointed to an extreme version of the worst elements in society, the danger is real, even if only in part. Such authors speak to us t [...]

    10. I love how Linden handles the suspense in this one. She knows how to end a chapter, that's for sure. She also has a good hand with the dramatic irony, which uses the two points of view (first-person Liberty vs. 3rd person subjective with the bad guy) to play off of each other, one cranking up the tension on the other in one scene, and then vice-versa in the next. Another thing the author handled well was Liberty's motivation for putting into action the final sequences, hurtling the characters in [...]

    11. Without a doubt, Ms. Linden is a gifted storyteller. It happens that I read her YA contemporary--Roland West, Loner--a few months ago and loved it. Chasing Liberty is a dystopian and therefore different from the other book but also quite enjoyable. The premise is one close to my heart, and I look forward to reading the next volume in the Liberty series. The main character is twenty, and this clean story is appropriate and should prove entertaining for both teens and adults.

    12. This is a great book! Open up your mind and jump in. I believe it crosses genres and generations and is very thought provoking. The characters are well developed as even minor characters are given a face and a voice. I love the detail and how seeming contradictions tend to just fit together when you see ideals from a different perspective.

    13. I think this book was FANTASTIC!! This dystopia is quite believable. it's not too far off of what is currently going on in society. The breakdown of families, the forced sterilization, the "you only live once" attitude. it's quite the edge of the seat type of book. I'm excited to read the next book in the series. I only hope that it comes out sooner than later.

    14. In the last few weeks I have read two of the novels and 3 published short stories by Theresa Linden. I have been greatly impressed by her writing and world building. In fact her writing reminds me of two of my all-time favourite authors, Madeleine L'Engle and Lois Lowry, both of whom won two Newberry awards, and I believe Linden's could as well. If we were to do a direct comparison between L'Engle and Linden then the Chasing Liberty Series would be the Kairos series and the West Brothers would b [...]

    15. Chasing Liberty, by Theresa Linden, is the first in a dystopian trilogy of books centered around a young woman. Liberty resides in futuristic Aldonia; a city where authentic freedom, familial love and objective truth have been squashed by government forces aimed at controlling the population. Without the freedom to grow up in a family with a mother and father, Liberty tries to make her own way in a society that allows little choice.As Liberty approaches adulthood, she is told by the government w [...]

    16. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this dystopian novel of a world that could actually come into being, all the elements already existing in our current civilisation. An engaging, serious story, interspersed with humour and irony. I loved the ending! This work can stand alone but I'm looking forward to reading the other novels in the series!

    17. Great dystopian story, but more believable than other best sellers. Love the Christian angle too. Liberty and Dedrick are well-formed characters, which I really like and sympathize with. The other characters are not cut-outs, either. Can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy.

    18. 4 1/2 stars! I really enjoyed this book. There was action and suspense. Liberty is searching for more to life than what the Regimen has for her and not conforming to how other people live their lives. I can't wait to read the rest of the series and see if she can conquer her mistake.
