The Patriot’s Grill is a thriller sci-fi story. It begins in the future, dating to the year 2099 where America has a dystopian dictatorship, and democracy is a far-fetched concept. Joe Carlton, a bartender working at a Grill restaurant, has been at his job for over 20 years. Although it isn’t his ideal life situation, he still considers it better than the industrialized lifestyle outside his environment. Pollution is everywhere. An older man walks into the bar and begins talking to him about a world where freedom and democracy existed. Things change from there.
I found the story to be written very well. The concept of political status and how we can view this outcome from our lifestyles was insightful to read. The American freedom is the memory Joe has to pass on, which becomes the story’s concept.
The political thriller doesn’t just represent a story but a movement. If we live and stay the way we are, we will subsequently live in such a world where pollution and dictatorship will be our future. The pace of the story was steady and kept me intrigued till the end.
I recommend this story to anyone who likes to read sci-fi fiction and dystopian material.Tweet
