    1. The Third by Abel Keough Adult Apocalyptic Fiction The covers of this book are too far apart Ambrose BierceThus begins my review of a book that took too much and gave too little.The Third takes place in the year 2065, a futuristic apocalyptic world where citizens are only allowed 2 children The concept is so overdone already for a great book on the same plot, try Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix In this version, Ransome Lawe has just found out his wife has become pregnant with their [...]


    2. Overall Review Reminiscent of George Orwell s 1984 , Abel Keogh has captured a viable, thought provoking, and grippingly scary future in The Third It is the year 2065 in Washington State, USA The government has almost total control over the people no cars are allowed donkeys with carts or public trams instead , no air conditioning heating, the power is closely regulated and if you use too much, it s shut off , water is rationed, food is rationed to the point of a constant gnawing hunger, and abo [...]



    3. staffersmusings 2Know what I liked about The Third There are no right answers In Abel Keogh s novel of the near future, the world has responded to the threat of global warming by instituting strict population limits and rationing resources I was very hesitant to read the novel because the global warming issue has become so politicized in recent years that I fear any novel built around the concept will demagogue for one side or the other I shouldn t have worried.The story centers on Ransom Lawe a [...]


    4. I have read a few YA Dystopian novels lately that I have enjoyed but this is the first Adult Dystopian for me and I loved it The world that The Third was set in was scary in the sense that I can see how it could one day be real I do not think it is a stretch to think that one day our population will outgrow our resources Things like mandatory recycling of goods are already happening in some various cities or states in the US like Pittsburg, San Diego, Seattle, New York, Philadelphia, Connecticut [...]


    5. I wanted to like The Third than I actually did The plot was a good one but the execution was lacking for me I never connected with the characters or felt invested in them Both Ransom and Teya made so many rash, impulsive decisions that they were often the source of their own troubles Ransom didn t bother me too much but Teya s character was all over the place I couldn t pin down who she was as a person so I couldn t relate to her in any way Her reaction to Ransom at the end of the book when he [...]


    6. Abel Keogh had me hooked by the first few pages when he describes in harrowing detail how the main character, Ransom Lawe, rescues a baby from an evil Census Bureau Sentinel Abel s description and vivid emotional detail kept me turning pages to find out what would happen next.I love books with a theme that at first glance seems like something that couldn t happen, but upon closer examination show that some parts of our world are mere steps away from scary fiction.Abel is a talented writer and yo [...]


    7. I read The Third in pre release format on my Kindle and was extremely pleased with the content, writing style and overall message Keogh s The Third reminded me of George Orwell s classical novel, 1984 The world he paints, not that far into the future, is dysmal, confining, and completly in control of the government right down to the food we eat and the time we spend each day I am a new fan of Abel Keogh I look forward to the sequel.


    8. Wow This book is fast paced and keeps your heart pumping You have to read this one Abel is a great writer He does a fantasticjob of keeping the suspense up I will be reviewing this book on my blogMay 14th Come by to see what else i really liked about this book.


    9. This is the second time I have read The Third, and the story was just as intense a read as it was the first time I opened the pages This is a futuristic story that is non stop, gripping the edge of your seat action and emotion, and it makes the reader ponder how they would handle having their freedom of choice taken away when it came to their basic human rights It is as if the author is predicting the future of our nation through a fictional work that is believable and possible than we want to [...]


    10. Every now and then I pick up a book by a Mormon author hoping that maybe, just maybe, this one will be readable Occasionally my hopes are fulfilled and the book is enjoyable 97% of the time they are not.This book Solidly in the 97%.In the first place, it just came across as passive aggressively preachy Like it was written in response to the people who in real life think people have too many kids And considering that all one has to do is take a look around to see that those people are very much [...]


    11. The US in 2065 is a very different place Strict regulations govern where you live, what you do, how much you consume, and how many children you can have All in the name of saving the planet Ransom and Teya have respectable jobs, and two kids, the legal limit When Teya reveals she s pregnant, Ransom must find a way to save his family from the overzealous government and their rules Can he do it without ripping apart the life they lead This was a very adult dystopian in all its gritty details The w [...]


    12. This dystopian book was engaging and describes a world very different from the one we live in now, yet it connects readers to it through universal struggles that humans experience The author vividly paints a picture of how society could be fifty years in the future and it s grim and harsh There is a law in place that prohibits families from having than two children The main character Ransom Lawe finds himself questioning the rules of society when his wife becomes pregnant with their 3rd child H [...]


    13. I read this book up to the beginning of chapter 9 I think the author writes well I even felt some level of commitment to finish the book, so I even began scanning the book to finish faster However, I finally decided I was just not enjoying it I think I am just tired of dystopian fiction and so I couldn t get into it Nothing personal to the book.


    14. 2.5 starsAlthough the premise was great and the world Keogh created was interesting, I couldn t get into this book as much as I wanted to Teya and Ransom were so impulsive somehow not realizing that what they do has a direct impact on others especially in regard to their 2 young children I would have liked the book if the main characters were actually likeable and or relateable.


    15. This was not one of the worst books I have ever read, but definitely one of the worst of the year I wanted to like it, it started off awesome and had moments of promise, but it just got worse and worse until it finally ended Not a big fan of the writing, Ransom this Ransom that Seems Keogh is afraid of pronouns Idea was good, delivery not so much.


    16. This book is based on an interesting premise how society and government shape population and fertility policy to grapple with the environmental impact of over population, but it felt rushed and was fairly predictable.


    17. Okay, so I didn t read the entire book In fact, one chapter was enough.As an aspiring writer, I was disgusted to see a work in print that had broken so many writing rules.Maybe it was just jealousy, but either way, I won t be reopening it any time soon


    18. Weak Interesting premise, but never fully developed I never cared for the protagonist, because he was a sullen jerk The villians seemed toothless, and the only interesting twist was anti climtic.


    19. Horrible book I couldn t stand the wife Teya I just wanted to smack her The husband Ransom never listened either Waste of money.


    20. The Third is a compelling story of a family that is easy to relate to Ransom and Teya Lawe are the struggling parents of two precious boys who are working hard to make ends meet and provide for their family in a world that s over populated and increasingly running short on resources Joining them as they desperately try to find a way to keep their third and illegal child this story sucks you right in Great read Can t wait for the sequel


    21. Riveting, frightening and thrilling story of life in a possible future world where it is against the law to have a third child.


    22. This is a dystopian future story that tries really hard to have a deep meaning but really leaves too many loose threads to feel like a complete novel.One of the conceits of dystopian futures is that you have to agree to stop asking questions For instance, what events transpired to allow the world in 1984 to exist It makes no sense I know that I m probably inviting a lot of arguments with this since a lot of people think we are headed there right now My argument is that those concerns and worries [...]


    23. 3.5 stars The most gripping aspects of this story was how it presents a future that is entirely possible, and most likely probable.The year is 2065, and the world is a very different place from today Instead of a future with kids playing at the park on their hoverboards or travel through teleportation which I was really hoping someone would invent , our societies have destroyed the planet, and the consequences are harsh People are barely scraping by, living off rations, limited supplies of water [...]


    24. Picked it up to skim it and read 50 pages, that s how smoothly it reads Still thinking about this one, but that s a good thing Might have to think about it some before I can write a good review, but here s a quick summary.Ransom Lawe lives in a green city 50 or so years in the future The city reminds me a little of the flourescent lights in Joe s office on Joe vs the Volcano sorry I mentioned Joe vs the Volcano in a review of your book, Abel the city sucks the life out of people by taking away [...]


    25. Ransom works as a recycler in a town and future where population control is an everyday reality What does that mean Limiting women to only having two children What happens if the women get pregnant with a third Well, not pretty The novel starts out with Ransom saving a women s baby from being killed by an evil sentinel on the tram This heroic act backfires, but by the end of the novel, his good deed does not go unpunished However it turns quickly to bad And that is what Ransom has to deal with w [...]


    26. Ransom Lawe works at the recycling plant Back in the day the position would have been called a garbage man, but times have changed and so has the job In this time, everything is recycled, even houses and trees In this not so distant future time, there are no cars and water and food are rationed Women are allowed to only have two children If they have a third, they must have a credit for it, or the Census Bureau Sentinals will come take the female to the infirmary and take care of the problem His [...]


    27. As you all know, I normally only read YA novels, but I was intrigued by this title and storyline I am so glad that I decided to give this book a try, I ended up loving it This book has a frustrating storyline, but is beautifully written.The book takes place in the year 2065 Things have changed a lot from now til then The government has taken over regulating everything from food to all power sources They blame everything on the people and say that the earth was never taken care of especially with [...]


    28. In the near future, saving the environment at all costs is the concern of the totalitarian government Everything must be recycled, the amount of food the public can buy is limited, and the number of children a couple can have is two Each person has one credit they can use to have a child Should they choose not to have a child, they may sell this credit to a couple who wish to have a third Ransom Lawe s wife is pregnant with their third child He must find a way to purchase a credit, or should he [...]


    29. As an editor, I ve had the opportunity to work on a lot of books Some of them have stuck with me over time, but none has impacted me the same way as The Third by Abel Keogh Our main character is Ransom Lawe, a man living in the northwest about fifty years into the future The world is running out of natural resources and the people of Earth depend on recycling for their survival Another law has been enacted, that of allowing only two children per family If a woman becomes pregnant after having he [...]
