HUGEOrange Publication Review

The Battles has a unique twist on how to create a better world, for the individual and humanity as a whole. It’s based on the work of Wallace D. Wattles, an American author who wrote books on self-improvement, creating wealth and New Thought ideas of the time (early 1900s).  Christiane Agricola has woven an allegorical story of how mankind can stop destroying their own bodies and the planet. Big Magnus, a sorcerer, has decided to produce a reality show contest, with the winner granted a meaningful reward. Contestants are chosen and the game begins, shown on TV to a population of unmotivated and lazy citizens of the world.

The Big Five, a group of five powerful families, controls the world and keeps it ignorant and dependent. They have bamboozled people into seeing only paradise and plentiful, nourishing food when the reality is the world has deteriorated into slums and available food is addictive and heavily sugared.  The contestants, each with a different outlook on life, are led through six trials to determine the winner.  Each step results in a gradual awakening of how to live well and be a hero to the earth.

This is an interesting (and timely) book and fun to read. Highly recommended for those searching for inspiration on changing their own lives for the better and saving our planet.
