I've been a big Chuck P fan for quite some time now. I even caught him live at the Triple Rock for the "Snuff" tour. His last few books haven't grabbed me like "Rant," "Lullaby" or "Survivor" did.

"Adjustment Day" is different. An interesting take on dystopia, fueled by the concept that there is a cyclical population bulge of males that is alleviated by war. This time, instead of another war, the young men and blue collar folks of country rise up and decapitate the intelligentsia and the leadership elites from their positions of power. Then black and white ethno-states and "Gaysia" are created and a new ruling class is created from the young men and blue collar rebel leaders. Hijinks ensue and it takes a while to sort out who is important to the reader but a worthwhile novel.
