Audience Reviews for The White King

  • Feb 05, 2017
    We see a new world order that brings its society back to the soil, damning technology, applauding the simple life. This totalitarian world parallels Hitler's pride, where the community stands for hours in grocery lines, eat bread and watered soup if they don't have connections with the higher ups, and wear their only 2 or 3 outfits if they haven't contributed to the recent revolution. Twelve-year-old Djata, who tells the story, gets a glimpse of a technically advanced wealthy world full of crowded highways and gleaming skyscrapers, where food and wealth are in abundance. I find it interesting where the technical world is put in a higher light. What a switch!
