      John Rachel has a B A in Philosophy, has traveled extensively, is a songwriter, music producer, novelist, and a bi polar humanist He has spent his entire life trying to resolve the intrinsic clash between the metaphysical purity of Buddhism and the overwhelming appeal of narcissism Prompted by the trauma of graduating high school and having to leave his beloved city of Detroit to attend university, the development of his social skills and world view were arrested at age 18 This affliction figures prominently in all of his creative work.Since 2008, when he first embarked on his career as a novelist, he has had eight fiction and three non fiction books published These range from three satires and a coming of age trilogy, to a political drama and now a crime thriller The three non fiction works were also political, his attempt to address the crisis of democracy and pandemic corruption in the governing institutions of America, plus offer a radical step by step plan for reversing the U.S obsession with war and militarism.With the publication of his most recent novel Petrocelli, a gruesome story about human trafficking for prostitution, he has three novels in the pipeline Love Connection, a drug trafficking thriller set in Japan Sex, Lies and Coffee Beans, a spoof on the self help crazes of the 80s and 90s and finally, The Last Giraffe, an anthropological drama and love story involving both the worship and devouring of giraffes It deliciously unfolds in 19th Century sub Saharan Africa.Also, while recently traveling in the Philippines and Myanmar, he completed a book which appears to defy easy categorization, titled What Do Mermaids Eat A number of prominent publishers have declared that they will do everything in their power to make sure these new books never see the light of day.The author s last permanent residence in America was Portland, Oregon where he had a state of the art ProTools recording studio, music production house, a radio promotion and music publishing company He recorded and produced several artists in the Pacific Northwest, releasing and promoting their music on radio across America and overseas.John Rachel now lives in a quiet, traditional, rural Japanese community, where he sets his non existent watch by the thrice daily ringing of sonorous temple bells, at a local Shinto shrine.

    1. Good Satire is like cleaning out your mind, organizing your thoughts and then adding dance music and a laugh track to them! It says what we think, sees what we see and unlike the Emperor with his new clothes, it tells thing like they are, albeit just a little skewed, with a whole lot of attitude!John Rachel’s BLINDERS KEEPERS is good satire told by a great storyteller who is an equal opportunity satirist! Follow young Noah, who is not the sharpest pencil in the box, not the most ambitious guy [...]


    2. This is my latest novel. With humility and total objectivity, I think it is the greatest book written since Franz Kafka started doing standup comedy. I will be shocked if it doesn't replace the Bible as the best selling novel in history. Of course, it has fewer characters than the Bible and does not feature God, who I wanted to include but couldn't because His lawyers refused to give me rights to His story. But this should be a plus, considering what an unwieldy mess the Holy Book is. Talk about [...]


    3. Title: Blinders KeepersAuthor: John RachelPublisher: Literary Vagabond BookReviewed By: Arlena DeanRating: FiveReview:"Blinders Keepers" by John RachelMy ThoughtsWow, this author never disappointshe knows how to keep your attention as he did with this satire read. There was a good opening, plot, with hilarious humor[laugh out loud], metaphors, insanity, adventure,surprises, political atmosphere of the white house we are given this satire of this 'young man [Noah]with one idealistic mindset of it [...]


    4. The dystopian picaresque novel is alive and well! Blinders Keepers is a fugitive quest set in the near future in an America none of us would want. In its futurist setting, it aligns with 1984, Brave New World, and The Handmaid's Tale, all cautionary stories about how bad things might get if we don't wake up and smell the decaf.Wrongly accused of perpetrating a terrorist act, young protagonist Noah Tass embarks on a cross-country journey -- first to get out of boring Dodge, then to simply dodge j [...]


    5. Although never explicitly stated, Blinders Keepers is set in contemporary times, call it the very near future. It’s satirical and definitely has its moments. For example, the sitting President of the US can string together clichés while saying nothing as well as any politician you’ve ever seen. Or the description of an odor as “unlike anything Noah had ever encountered, having never exhumed a person from a grave or stuck his head inside the bloated anus of a cow that had been rotting in t [...]


    6. This book is exceptionally well written. Superbly interesting with twists and humor that makes you think about the commonly accepted realities of our lives. John Rachel pounds out such amazing analogies and ridiculous realism, it is easy to get lost in his satirical world. Extremely funny, wonderful plot, wonderful comments on life. You will laugh and cringe all in the same note. The absurdities are told in such hilarious detail that I couldn't help but laugh out loud and draw stares from strang [...]


    7. As I stated before finishing this book, brillant. Faciinating to read. Packed to the hilt with similies, maetaphors, humor, satire, insanity, cruelity, parody, sex, power, and the plain truth of our world situation.The author recapitualtes a cartoon scene from within the beginning of the story giving it an entirely different ending. A surprise reversal that mirrors how our present desolate state of affairs can change. This book sure tickled my funny bone, the final scene is indelibly stamped in [...]


    8. Satire at its best. The intertwining of Noah's adventures along with the political atmosphere of the white house has an intriguing pull that makes you just want to keep reading. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and found myself reading sections to my husband and friends. It led to some great discussions. Will definitely be reading more by this author.


    9. Blinders Keepers On More Levels Than You Can CountTwo horsemen War and Death ride. They might as well with the world especially the US leadership, economy, you-name-it, going to hell in a handbasket. In Missouri there was nothing with that nothingness being captured so much so I thought this book couldn't possibly be for me, but it all exploded in a blink and the Two sprung forth through the flame. Famine and Conquest could not help but follow and weren’t going to miss it. The lamb indeed foll [...]


    10. I was offered a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. I had fun reading this book. I was torn between a 3 and a 4 star rating. I think a book that makes a statement about the government and its awful way of handling itself combined with terrorism, violence, broken economy all wrapped up in a nice coat of satire makes for an interesting read. While I liked the overall writing style and the feel of the story there are some rough parts. There are parts of the story where the flow [...]


    11. “Blinders Keepers” is an example of how to successfully mix political observations, humor, and creativity. Noah Tass is bored with Missouri, for good reason, and takes off on a self-discovery mission he believes will mostly consist of motorcycle rallies. Luckily for us, though not so lucky for Noah, the bus he takes out of town explodes the moment he steps off of it. The blame lands on Noah, sending him on the run from authorities to discover an underground counter-culture that is the resist [...]


    12. I received this book for free, in exchange for an honest review.I almost gave 'Blinders Keepers' a 3, but there are aspects of this book that deserve to be read. The story is gripping from the start- in fact some of the best passages in the book come before the plot even happens, as John Rachel builds Noah a believable life and set of friends. Noah is a good protagonist, dazed and unaware of his surroundings a lot of the time and as things start going wrong for him there are some genuinely laugh [...]


    13. OK, this is a very difficult book for me to rate. To boil it down: this is a book with something important to say, but sometimes it's too busy making wise-cracks about American society to say it. I do love satire, and Blinder-Keepers is a fine piece of satire. However, at times the satire is a disservice to the story; that is, sometimes the book is too clever for the good of its own plot. At times it is an absorbing, page-turning read, and at others, well, I'm not sure how to phrase it. It's not [...]


    14. ***THE GREAT MODERN NOVEL IS ALIVE & WELL!***As the author wrote:With humility and total objectivity, I think it is the greatest book written since Franz Kafka started doing standup comedy. I will be shocked if it doesn't replace the Bible as the best selling novel in history. Of course, it has fewer characters than the Bible and does not feature God, who I wanted to include but couldn't because His lawyers refused to give me rights to His story. But this should be a plus, considering what a [...]


    15. That’s The Ameri-can Way People4.5 StarsI was so close to giving this one five stars that I am still questioning my decision as I type this. If not for a few more technical than anything else nitpicks that would pull take me out of the story just long enough for me to notice, I would definite give this novel the full five stars.This book turned out to be one of the most pleasant surprises that I have had in my recent readings. The writing is crisp and very witty. The author seemed to easily pa [...]


    16. Blinders Keepers is an interesting book. Somewhere between Idiocracy and a good Christopher Moore book, we're taken on an unforgettable joyride all over the country, which just happens to be falling apart. The main character, a guy named Noah, is on the run for a crime he didn't commit and it seems as if every intelligence agency in the country is after him. The supporting cast is full of crazy characters that we couldn't make up if we tried but would probably love to have in our lives. The book [...]


    17. I think I skipped every-other word just to get through this book.Not sure I could even tell you what it is about. It made little or no sense and was completely unbelievable.Save your money and time.If I could get a refund I would.


    18. Overly forced pop culture references everywhere. Plot holes, not to mention parts of the plot just being unrealistic. Very cliched phrasing.


    19. A well written, well thought out satire which had me by turns laughing and shaking my head.*I recieved this book for free through First Reads*
