100%: The Story of a Patriot


Read by Lee Smalley

(4.2 stars; 25 reviews)

"100%:The Story of a Patriot" dramatically recounts the adventures of a poor uneducated young man who lives by his wits and guile, as he becomes politicized during his involvement in the sometimes violent struggle between American “patriots” and “Reds”. The author wrote in the Appendix, which is not included in this recording: "Everything that has social significance is truth.... Practically all the characters in "100%" are real persons." This exciting, polemical novel was published in 1920. Sinclair (1878-1968) wrote nearly 100 novels, many based on industrial abuse. One of his best known, "The Jungle", was influential in initiating the regulation of food safety in the United States. He won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1943. (Lee Smalley)

Ah

(5 stars)

The last election made a point that I shouldn't watch television, or DVD'S, and YouTube. That was back in September of last year, and my time is filled with reading books, and listening to audio books. Then I send off emails to the Governor of the State I live in about how I want some marijuana. The Mayor of the Town I live in how the Police are Pig's, and Thug's. I am just not satisfied.

interesting

(4 stars)

This was not masterful as the jungle but was based on real people which, for me, makes he story. If it was made up I could have gone for more twists and turns but as it was turned out to be a pretty interesting tale. It was well read. I'd like to check out the postscript.

(5 stars)

One could imagine this story slightly updated for 2019. very relevant eloquently red characters were believable and situations. I would recommend this to be read or listen to by everyone everywhere. teenagers should listen to this and get a good grasp on where we might be going today as a country in the USA!

Is this for real?

(5 stars)

Upton Sinclair is one of my favourite authors , having been introduced to him over forty years ago by Thomas Mc Bride.Is this for real? Or,more likely, is this a satirical tale? Regardless,it is an enchanting tale and the reader is flawless. I recommend this heartily.

Great story & Read wonderfully

(4 stars)

This wzs a great story. Not as good as other works - but definitely worth the listen!

(4.5 stars)

The plot with its espionage, violence, torture and political machinations has resonance to the present--how little things have changed!

(5 stars)

Yet another engaging novel by Upton Sinclair. Well read. Thank-you.
