5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and entertaining, 29 July 2014

This review is from: The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy (Kindle Edition)
I got a copy of this, after reading and enjoying The Orphan Trilogy.

When you hear conspiracy theory, many people dismiss it as a crackpot idea. Lance and James address this at the start of the book, get a sample downloaded and you will see, this book is a world away from crackpot.

The many conspiracy theories in the book were thought provoking, and in the context of the story, completely believable.

What this companion book does, is add fact to the fiction of The Orphan Trilogy and the world of Nine.
It makes you think about the world we live in now, and much of the world history, that we have told is untrue, or pure fiction.
The balanced and sometimes amusing way that the Morcan's have presented their information, gives fact to the fiction.
I would not say that reading the book before The Orphan Trilogy, would be spoilers, but for entertainment, read the trilogy first, then get this book. It will surprise and educate you on the amazing, scary, mysterious world we live in.

What is my personal opinion on this book?
I read it twice in the period of a week on my kindle app, there is a great deal of highlighting and notes on it now. That shows that it made me think and question, which I always love in any book.

The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy
by James Morcan

Non-Fiction.
This book delves into some theories on controversial subjects and some very famous urban legends and (conspiracy) theories. A lot of the topics are brought at some point in one or all of The Orphan Series (books).

They bring up world wide topics such as big bankers,(US) Presidents, The British Royal Family, Pharmaceutical companies, the Vatican, the FBI, the CIA, the Military, CEO’s of huge profiting corporations like Facebook, Shell, Google, BP and Microsoft.

They also bring up "secret societies", and conspiracy theories on some famous people. Some of the concepts and ideas are mere fiction while most of the book is proven fact. I found the book very interesting and it left me wondering how much is going on in the world today that society knows little to nothing about. I highly recommend to all.

4.0 out of 5 stars A much needed book!, 29 Sep 2014
This review is from: The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy (Kindle Edition)
The Orphan Conspiracies is a very well written and easily readable book which details a range of conspiracy theories, such as Area 51, the suppression of Tesla's technological inventions, False Flags and mind control projects like MK-Ultra.

I believe this is a much needed book, as it bridges the gap between authors like John Pilger and David Icke, who are of opposite extremes. There are few books in between these types of authors to give the average reader an overview of what's going on behind the propaganda.

Having said that, the authors of The Orphan Conspiracies go to lengths to separate themselves from what they call the Tinfoil Hat brigade, and I'm somebody who belongs to that group from their perspective! I found it odd that things like chemtrails are dismissed by the authors as to belonging to that 'crazy faction', when there is plenty of seriously researched evidence for their existence. The Illuminati are also dismissed by the authors, when there's much evidence that they orchestrated the French Revolution and have/had ties to many secret organisations like the Rosicrucians and Freemasons. Also, this book mentions Bohemian Grove, and yet fails to say anything about Alex Jones's video documentation from infiltrating the group. And I'm surprised there's no mention of the direct 9/11 conspiracy, seeing as it's the mother of False Flags.

For me, the distinction between Tinfoil Hatters and more reserved conspiracy believers, comes down to not the conspiracy issue itself (whatever that may be) but to the amount of evidence that exists and how reliable that information is.
So, if like me, you have studied conspiracies for many years, you will find little that is new here and will be wishing more was said about certain things. But there are enough details amongst the book to keep one interested and entertained.
If you're new to conspiracy theories, or have read little about them, then I would definitely recommend this book as a brilliant starting point. The authors don't insist that they know any answers, but are rather just putting out the information for the reader to decide for themselves.
Regardless of whether there's any truth to the more 'crazy' conspiracy theories, at the heart of this book, the authors are mostly interested in the very real conspiracy that nobody can deny: that 1% of the population are the financial ruling elite, that wars are created for profit and more, and that we, the people, need to come together to make the world a more just place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh boy, conspiracy theories!, 5 Sep 2014

This review is from: The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed reading The Orphan Conspiracies - I would recommend it as a reference book for all writers of thrillers or mysteries and maybe some other genres. It's a glorious mine of possibilities for underlying sub-plotting. I gave it 4 stars, but would have given it 4.5 if allowed. The half point off 5 is only due to knowing about a couple of the conspiracies through my professional life and knowing some of the basic facts are impossible or plain wrong, and that was just a tad disappointing. But remember that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. If you have any interest in conspiracy theories, you will too!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Read!, 9 Oct 2014
This review is from: The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy (Kindle Edition)
This is a very interesting book, it covers and explains the main conspiracy theories. Many of them are still debated today, such as the existence of Area 51 and the 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. This is an introductory book to The Orphan Trilogy. Read it...and you will start to see things in a different light and perspective!
