Review: American War

American War by Omar El Akkad
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

More speculative fiction than strictly dystopian or science fiction, American War is set before, during, and after the second American Civil War. Global warming, opposing ideologies, energy technology – all have driven secession and war. Visceral and scary, this tale of a future civil war fought over fossil fuel use is all too believable.
