Nine-Tenths Cover

"Nine-Tenths is more than just a thriller. It's a sobering and all-too-real look at the end of a road we've already begun to travel, and I applaud the author for a job well done in presenting it. Easily one of the top five independent novels I've read, and highly recommended." - Stephen England

"I just finished Nine-Tenths by Meira Pentermann and LOVED IT. The author did an excellent job of capturing the bureaucratic, collectivist mentality of people who are in positions of authority in a totalitarian regime. It was a mélange of Atlas Shrugged, Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty-Four." - Robert W. McGee

"I have read a lot of books about dystopian societies. They can really be hit or miss. This one was a hit. Not many of these type of books focus on families fighting their way through these oppressive worlds. Usually everyone is evil except that one person struggling to get free but not with this one. That's one thing I really enjoyed about this book. Leonard, his wife Alina and their daughter Natalia all band together to cross all barriers to get to a better place."  - Erin, The Ultimate Book Nook

"Great book about one family's need for freedom. Nine-Tenths is full of the kinds of tropes that you would expect of a book that explores a repressive society. Paranoia, fear, betrayal, a sense that the world is rotting from the inside, and that idea that is the most depressing of all; that Big Brother is watching every stinking move you make. And while there are those creepy, drama-filled scenes, the book doesn't descend into such a bleak place that you want to quit reading. There isn't a sense of hopelessness that can sometimes characterize this genre of fiction." - D. Ray Daniels

"An aspect I liked about Nine-tenths is a difference in world view from prior dystopian novels. Most seem to work on the Marxist assumption that history is a tidal wave of inevitable social and cultural forces overpowering and overturning people and institutions. It holds the assumption that a single man is powerless. I can't abide that. Maybe that's why I don't like most of dystopian literature. It assumes that on the path to totalitarianism no one is 'standing athwart history yelling Stop'."  - Howard McEwen, Bellevue, KY

"Nine-Tenths is a dystopian tale in sci-fi wrapping paper. Ostensibly a time-travel story, only the very beginning and end of the book actually deal much with science fiction. The meat of the book is what happens in an alternate time-line where the United States has been transformed into a totalitarian state. Like the great dystopian works of 1984 and Brave New World, Nine-Tenths draws a frightening picture of a society that is all too plausible."Brian Garst, The Conservative Compendium





Leonard Tramer and his family live in Colorado, trapped behind the walls of a totalitarian state. Dedicated to one another and determined to find the free world, they plan an escape which defies the odds and deceives their tyrannical government.

Emerging at a time when personal liberties and Internet privacy are slowly eroding, Nine Tenths offers a window into a dysfunctional society, while celebrating the resiliency of the human spirit and the natural urge to resist oppression.
