Gangster Town: The First 2 Chapters from Book 3 in the American Blackout Thriller Series

The action continues in Fred Tribuzzo’s action-packed adventure

Cricket was half awake, and her dream continued to play outside her bedroom window. Her father’s profile, head down, as he was thinking or getting ready to give an answer to her question soon morphed into her great-uncle Tommy, a young soldier returning from World War Two. Other faces appeared, dissolved, people she had known, loved, and lost.

She was filling her lungs with her first conscious breath when the face outside the window turned into a white leopard. The big, wide face peered at her peacefully, eyes warm on the surface yet streaming the vastness of nature.

She quickly lifted herself up on one arm, disturbing her husband’s sleep. The animal had to be on its hind legs.

Dystopian Movies Head-to-Head: 4 Reasons Why ‘Equals’ Beats ‘Equilibrium’

On the surface, Equals and Equilibrium have the same premise. Humanity had a horrible war. Emotion itself was blamed, so it is outlawed. In Equilibrium, everyone takes mandatory medication to suppress emotion but is otherwise normal. In Equals, it is implied they do something at birth to suppress emotions, though the process fails periodically. In both societies, there is a totalitarian system that seeks to find the deviants and gets in the way of a couple falling in love. While Equilibrium is a bigger budget film with far more action, I think Equals beats it in a variety of ways.
