Publisher's Summary

Britain, 2050. The socioeconomic crisis is over, and consumerism is thriving. Ownership of land is the preserve of a tiny elite, and the rest of the population is divided into High, Mid and Low Spenders. When citizens stop spending, they lose their Right to Reside and must retire to a Dignitorium, where they are rewarded for their lifelong contribution to society with nine wonderful months before being peacefully euthanised. 

Alice’s husband, Philip, has gone missing, along with all his money. Desperate, and on the verge of losing her own Right to Reside, she turns to older sister, Sofia, who abandoned the family many years ago to marry an Owner. Sofia never disguised her hatred and contempt for her, but she may be the last chance Alice has....

Mind Blowing!

This is a brilliant novel and superbly narrated by Amaka Okafor. I'm a fan of dystopia, sci-fi, thrillers and Tunde Farrand's Wolf Country I feel is a classic in this genre.

The story is set in London 2050 where the new social order has eradicated poverty, and citizens, dependent on status, enjoy a comfortable or luxurious lifestyle. However, as the story unfolds through our protagonist Alice we learn more about the dark reality of the 'new system'. Gripping, frightening and thought-provoking as this novel touches on many of the social issues that face us now with terrifying future 'solutions'.

Overall, the novel felt to me very much in the spirit of Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go, Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror and Huxley's Brave New World.

Fabulous premise, scary dystopia

I devoured this book right up to the final few chapters and an ending which felt disjointed from the rest of the book and just didn’t work for me. BUT up to that point I was engrossed. As with all great dystopias, the passage to this awful societal system was all too credible. The depressing eye through which old age ‘in the past’ was shown, was a little bit too near to the truth - brilliant. Even if you feel as I do about the ending, the book is definitely worth a read/ listen.

Where we could be headed without state regulation

Taking place in a Totalitarian society based on free market consumerism, the protagonist being someone indoctrinated into it. The end results of totalitarian systems have much in common, it seems. I think it is a thought provoking book. As an avid reader I believe this one will remain with me....

Great idea, weak ending

A rich, imaginative dystopia and a compelling story that sort of tails of at the end.

Well read and worth a read, but needs a follow up to give it some proper pay off.

disappointing

starts well an interesting view of a near future dystopia.
sometimes very near?
but the ending became rather predictable and the "bad guys" were only bad.
even the monsters don't believe that they're all bad?
so a good start but fell apart halfway through.
