Orwell told the perfect story of an oppressive dystopia. What he didn’t do, however, was tell us how this dystopia came about in the first place. “2084” answers this question.
“Lenses”, computerized contacts produced by a corporation called Newsight, are worn by everyone on the planet. The world is enamored with their seemingly endless capabilities. But a teenage boy named Vincent Smith has reservations. His father is in the Senate, and Newsight has been pushing for a bill that would lift all data regulations imposed on their devices. Fatrem, Newsight’s CEO, claims to want the data in order to stop the Order, a terrorist organization whose attacks have been mounting in frequency, but his true motives aren’t so clear. From a girl at his school whose father is a Newsight developer, Vincent learns about the bread crumbs in Newsight’s computer code. The corporation has a closer relationship to the Order than anyone may have guessed, and the Lenses have been doing more than just running simulations. Caught in the middle of a world blinded by its own desire for progress, Vincent and Jessica finally discover the truth, but it might already be too late.
Couldn't put it down
As a big fan of "1984", I have high standards for any sort of spinoff, but this story was much more than that. Though there were some connections to "1984", they were always originally and creatively done. If you like Orwell, this is a good read for you.
