  • A view to the future

    An interesting view of how the world will be in the future. Similar genre to 1984 by George Orwell.

  • Time Traveller

    Considering this book was published in 2016, pre the cataclysm that was, indeed still is, Covid, it was prescient. People can’t travel, the gap between the haves and have nots had grown, but as the economy of the world faltered and collapsed because of the huge burden of debt, it all but disappeared. Everyone was have nots. With the threat of collapse of economies because of Covid, it paints a frightening picture of the future. Yet for all this it is a story of one family. A family with jealousies, falling outs and resentments. Spread over four generations it is also a story of the ties that bind, and that blood, indeed, is thicker than water. I loved it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Heavy going!

    The Mandibles are a previously wealthy family trying to cope with the crash of the American economy in the future. Shriver details the minor changes as well as the more obvious ones and creates a very believable and scary new world. This audio book failed to consistently hold my attention but I enjoyed the narration. I found the content quite heavy with all the economic and financial dialogue.

    Thanks for your feedback!
