The premise of the book is clever and very, very contemporary. It is set in the world the week after next, when the world and its population are controlled by the system.
It concentrates on one family, and their accidental effects on others inside the system, and how the world we recognise collides with the world being created.
Trying not to write a spoiler, it is a gentle rebuke to all of us who enjoy social networks rather than society and socialising, online shopping to the High Street, and who retreat to the immediate buzz of technology instead of the more human excitements of engagement and involvement!
