Scary Faith!

Blind Faith - C.J. Lyons, Ben Elton

I love the way Ben Elton writes. He is always very entertaining and there is a constant element of sarcasm and irony. Blind Faith didn't appeal to me as much as some of his other novels, moreso for the subject matter, but I found that the writing style was so good that I couldn't put the book down. I enjoyed the message behind the story and I liked the unpredictable ending. The only thing I didn't like was the waffling on of some of the characters, but that was the point. Blind Faith is about a society that is made to believe what they are told and it is heresy to think for yourself. Nothing is private and if you are caught keeping any kind of secret, your life is in jeopardy. I give this story 3 and a half stars.
