CLR Book Club – Week 9 – It Can’t Happen Here -Sinclair Lewis February 28, 2017

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Anyone made it to Chapter Two, and what are the thoughts on the book so far? I’m enjoying it, though it is much of its time. That said some uncomfortable resonances with the contemporary.

Up to chapter 23. Windrip’s regime is now actively rounding up and imprisoning real and imagined opponents. Grim.

It’s weird how the tone changes so rapidly. Or perhaps that’s the point, that at first it seems satirical and only satirical – the ‘can’t happen here bit’ and then… It’s not a bad book is it?
