The Freedom Building is a work of thriller fiction set in contemporary times and was penned by author Martin Kendall. Taking a sharp look at the political, cultural and media-driven nature of modern times, this novel takes us on a surreal journey to view the modern-day West through fresh eyes. Its protagonist is John Gowan, an architect who awakens in the hospital with amnesia about his past life. When he learns that he has designed a highly important building, John seeks the truth, but darkness blocks him from remembering. What follows is a psychological thrill ride through the pressures of contemporary living as a secret reveals itself to the protagonist along the way.
Author Martin Kendall hits on every salient and terrifying point about modern life during this wild ride of a thriller novel, and it is those nods to our own reality which make the book all the more riveting for it. Intellectual and astute on many levels beyond the story itself, this is a book that keeps you thinking long after you put it down. Story-wise, John’s journey to remember things is well crafted and paced excellently for the psychological elements to really take hold, and the dialogue and narration really characterize his failing mental state very well. One of the things that were most memorable for me, however, was the symbolism that takes place everywhere, from the building itself to the media machine and the other factors of oppression. Overall, The Freedom Building is a truly superb read and comes highly recommended indeed.
