Imagine a world where everyone knows everything about everybody. Where 'sharing' is valued above all, and privacy is considered a dangerous perversion.
Trafford wouldn't call himself a rebel, but he's daring to be different, to stand out from the crowd. In his own small ways, he wants to push against the system. But in this world, uniformity is everything. And even tiny defiances won't go unnoticed.
Ben Elton's dark, savagely comic novel imagines a post-apocalyptic society where religious intolerance combines with a sex-obsessed, utterly egocentric culture. In this world, nakedness is modesty, independent thought subversive, and ignorance is wisdom.
A chilling vision of what's to come? Or something rather closer to home?
What a great book!
What a great book! Had a bit of trouble opening it at first, but the deleted and reinstalled ibooks
Thought provoking and entertains. It leaves you with the the fundamental questions of faith, why do you believe in an unprovable god?, which is blithely answered as ' because I have faith'. Conversely it is evident that man's attempt at self determination, inherently selfish and self centred isn't the panacea either. Set in the near future when the world has been decimated by floods and disease, reportedly visited upon man by God. Ironically today's concerns about cyber bullying and that private life is constantly invaded by CCTV, governments and the Facebook generation, are turned on its head as privacy and modesty are now seen as perverse and ungodly. Cleverly written and a page turner. Nice final twist but ended too quickly for my liking.....
