Book Description

‘Even though Mere Anarchy is fiction, it carries a
horrible, addictive reality that forces you to turn the
next page . . . even though you really don’t want to’.

2016: Britain is bankrupt. There is no more credit at any
price and the IMF has given the Chancellor two stark
options: Huge tax rises or huge spending cuts. Or both.

The Prime Minister is summoned to a late night meeting
with the big money. They tell him that if he tries to dig
himself out of the hole by raising taxes they will leave.
All of them. They give him only one option.
An immediate 25% cut in public spending.

Two months later he announces the greatest social
earthquake Britain has seen since the Black Death.

All benefits are cancelled with immediate effect
– Jobseeker’s Allowance, Sick Pay, Child Benefit,
Housing Benefit, Tax Credits . . .

Can the Government keep the lid on? Or will the streets
descend into anarchy? How far will those in power be

I have read this book numerous times. Is it possible??? As with all of Mark Frankland's books, an absolute page turner. Characters, reflecting real life, none are perfect, all have their varying degrees of good and bad, and most importantly, interesting. Mere Anarchy deals with the still very current issue of countries running out of money and what could happen in the UK if this happens. As a lifetime tax payer, I want to cheer reading this book, although I suspect this is not the reaction the author is looking for. Get ready for some twists and turns. I have already recommended this book to all my friends and now highly recommend to you.

In "Mere Anarchy", Mark Frankland crafts a socially-aware believable thriller set in a very pertinent dystopian Great Britain. His style is that of the "man in the street". It's not highbrow literature, but it is compulsively readable. And it is very worth reading. I enjoyed it immensely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary - but good 11 May 2014
By Galros
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book terrifying - mainly cos i can see it happening! The writing is good, character development is better in some areas than in others, but really - the book captured me because of the subject matter. Well worth a read.

Although don't read it just before bedtime!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars very good but... 6 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is truly a wonderful book, I couldn't stop reading and I will think about it for a long time to come. It only saddens me that such a good writer would fail to proofread their book for typos which increased in frequency as the book progressed.
