    1. Hm, I don't really know how to feel about this.I really like the premise for this book, but for some reason it was just hard to follow for me.Other than being a little hard to follow, I didn't have any problems with this book and I actually quite like how the society was structured.I'm not sure if it was just me, but the story just seemed a little slow and flat; admittedly, I wasn't very engaged, but it does address a lot of the issues that are becoming more prominent today, especially with the [...]

    2. from : "14,014. The number of Prohibited Words had grown every year under the determined leadership of Collis Lafferty, Commissioner of the Civility Commission (CivCom). Lafferty was driven to expunge all offense from civilized society.No one had the right to offend another.A small group of cyber hacktivists, X, are the last remaining civil dissidents. When their leader Sid the Squid, the world’s most famous hacker and CivCom’s most vocal critic, is arrested, X is on the brink of unraveling. [...]

    3. I won this near future, dystopian fiction through First Reads on , as I do so many of the books I review here. The Civility Code by Michael W. Anderson is the first book of a trilogy.The premise of the series is that offensive language has become a criminal offense, they added an amendment to the Constitution to this affect (Basically you are legally bound to be politically correct). To enforce this new law, a Civility Commission has been created. The commission investigates incidents of offensi [...]

    4. Freedom of speech. It's something we have grown accustomed to and almost taken for granted. And especially now, in a day and age where almost everything can be twisted around to offend someone. But can you imagine a world where these words are prohibited? Everything is gender neutralized and the use of these words is a violation of a code, or against the law. This is the world that Anderson has constructed in The Civility Coded I think this is the "closest to actually happening" sci-fi/futuristi [...]

    5. It is a well written book with a very plausible concept. Not really a new concept mind you, authoritarian governments abound in dystopian fiction but this one strikes pretty close to home with it's essentially current-day setting. My guess is that it was pushed forward a few years to allow for the technology in the book to be close enough to real but just beyond what we have now.The premise that we watch what we say so as not to offend anyone becomes government jurisdiction and that it becomes s [...]

    6. In the US in 2016, we are pushing the boundaries of what it means to have free speech. At the same time, we are raising a generation of young adults who don't know how to handle face-to-face confrontations. It is very easy to imagine that in 33 years, we could could be living in the world that Michael W. Anderson has created for his Civilogy. The Civility Code (Civilogy, #1) was an exciting, thought-provoking, and unnervingly prophetic read. His characters are well-developed, their experiences d [...]

    7. I loved MWA's first book Provoke not the Children, hence I was excited to see what he came up with this time around. To be honest, it started slower than I expected, perhaps it has to do with all cyberspace peculiarities But soon it progressed into a book I didn't want to put down. I have a 18 month year old crawling and running around the house and a full-time job, but I was carving out some time here and there so I could see the developments and finish the book as soon as possible And now that [...]

    8. Every once in a while you read a science fiction book and think, "That is not too far away" and by too far away, I mean less then a decade. The Civility Code is one of those books, and as read it, you can really feel for the characters. Without giving too much content away, this book is about what happens when political correctness meets free speech and wins by creating new laws. It is very believable and current, Once I started I had too keep reading, the only downside was this was Volume 1, br [...]

    9. I must admit, I put this book aside after the first few chapters because I couldn't figure out what was going on (especially with all of the zes and zirs), but when I decided to give it another try, I could NOT put it down. Wow! It's sad to say we are so far down this road already, especially with political correctness, that there is more truth to this story than fiction. The Civility Code is a timely and well-written sci-fi dystopian novel and it really takes off after the first couple of chapt [...]

    10. As a beta reader, I had anxiously waited for this book to finalize and be released. The concept is timely and thought provoking, yet very entertaining. The characters feel real and remind me of people I have known. It had been just long enough since my beta read that I once again did not want to put the book down. I am anxiously waiting for book 2."I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review."
