5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 29 April 2014
By Cody Nicholson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book. It outlined a lot of my interests in one book. It cover politics, teenage life, and the military. I can't wait for the next installment!

3.0 out of 5 stars Undecided 27 April 2014
By Dolores, a teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am in a quandary about how to rate this book. It took a whole week to finish it because I would get so mad at one (or another) of the characters and have to put it down. But then when it came to "do I pick it back up or do I move on?", I always chose to continue reading.

In the beginning, I was dismayed that all of the adults were morons and the teenagers were the only ones with any sense. But as the story progressed, the teenagers proceeded to make one ridiculous choice after another. Sorry to be so vague, but I try not to put spoilers in my reviews.

While I didn't "enjoy" it, I wasn't able to walk away from it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, exciting YA novel with flaws 30 Mar 2014
By audrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Danny Wright is a high school senior in the Idaho National Guard. He's a football player with a girlfriend and a group of friends he hangs out with a lot. He lives with his mother, who has an anxiety disorder. When the Idaho governor refuses to obey a controversial new federal law, Danny's Guard unit is sent to quell protesters in Boise. Things get out of hand and civilians are shot and killed, the president makes threats, and the state closes its borders, followed by federal troops setting up barriers at the border as well. Danny's senior year has gotten much more complicated!

I read to several teenagers, and we've had a difficult time finding good books that will keep their interest. I was thrilled when we ran across this book, which is exciting and realistic, and immediately caught the kids' interest. The author did a great job of laying out this interesting scenario, and the characters are complex and nuanced -- no one is pure evil or good, and everyone is flawed in some way. [Spoiler alert: HOWEVER, late in the book Danny kills a federal soldier, and we all thought the book went downhill fast, as we careened toward the inevitable cliffhanger, with his friends (and girlfriend) taking up arms.]

In addition to the violence, there is a lot of drinking and sexual activity. With the increasingly outrageous behavior towards the end of the book, the kids sort of lost interest, and with all the booze and sex, I am not inclined to try to change their minds. We won't be reading book 2, but I would try other books by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 15 Mar 2014
By suskenanna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I just finished Divided We Fall-I really enjoyed it and will be waiting anxiously for the second book in the series. One of the best books I have read lately. This book may be classed as a young adult book but I am a mature adult and I loved it. I highly recommend the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine teen near-future adventure 5 Mar 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not a teen boy, but I found this story very gripping and believable. It is set in a very near future, and the details of our media-obsessed world are very well rendered. The author doesn't choose sides, but makes the main character's ambivalence, as a very new member of the national guard, between his loyalty to his state and governor and his loyalty to the nation and the president very palpable. I look forward to the sequels.
