This is an unusual book in that it's written in the first person, auto-biography style. And yet it's set in the future.
It depicts a Britain where ... well, you'll have to read the book to find out. Needless to say, what seemed to be a good idea at the time, proved to be less than perfect, and things are going on in the background of which normal people are unaware.
Most of the action takes place in flash-back, which sounds confusing, and yet, somehow, it isn't confusing at all.
Characters appear, and then a flashback explains how they first met and how they fit into the current picture.
Be aware, though, if you are at all squeamish or weak of stomach, that some of the descriptions are, well, graphic to say the least.
As I read this book, it became more and more 'unputdownable' if that's a word. The story picked me up and carried me along in the action.
I think this book should be a warning to politicians and the public, present and future, that if a win-win policy seems too good to be true, it probably is!

This tale is an incredible feat of imagination, revealing the full potential of a society whose carers have been "turned" with the fear of their children becoming statistics in a world of horror and pain. This dark and frequently horrific book is compelling and is guaranteed to stay with you long after you finish it

This book is totally captivating. I am only half way through but can't put it down.
You get totally pulled into the characters and how the story unfolds itself.
Loving it. Would highly recommend
