I need a book to pull me in and keep me in its clutches.

By the time that book is finished, you should not be the same person you were when you read the first word.2022 definitely did not meet that expectation.

This near-futuristic story hits a little uncomfortably close to home, and the ortrayal of a globe in which verybody is issued something called an RFID chip -- required for any attempt at accessing the Internet -- leads to the creation of a near -Orwellian state.Couple this drastic scenario with a plot by a megalomaniacial environmentalist intent on unleashing a virulent chemical weapon as a last ditch attemp to protect a handful of off-the-grid villages, and you have the elements that make up the unsettling plotline of this ambitious work of fiction based on current events.The story revolves around a young ma named Julia who sets out to avenge the mysterious death of her rother and ends up volunteering to join one of the back-to-nature villages where she must, among other deprivations, do without makeup or coffee, or even her name, for the duration of her stay -- which could be several years.Other characters weave in and out of the backstory, including a professional killer who has the unlikely name of Hope -- and a strongly committed enforcer of the IPAA named Sue, who reveals a chilling capability that is wired into her organization 's infrastructure. " When ( the Internet user connected) it fired up a script that activated a user 's camera, took a picture, and then sent it with the IP address and other information directly to ( IIPA officials.) " As if this unprecedented invasion of privacy was n't ad enough, the IIPA decides to look more closely into the affairs of the non-profit organization called The Pleasant Belief Foundation -- the group organizing these villages -- for probable violations of the Act. They send a man to pose as a convert to gain inside access, and an uncertain fate befalls him.

I even believed that there would be undreds of people unable to sign up to go live in one of the remote “ villages ” that was being constructed under the guise of saving the planet.

There is the obligatory population killing virus, and double crosses galore ( and a few surprises), but I enjoyed reading about how the world is being affected, conveyed through normal plot advancement.

The uthor takes this subject very seriously, and even provides a few appendixes at the nd of the autobiography, explaining his thought process.Overall, the message comes through loud and clear without being too preachy.

Overall I feel this ook is a compellin read.

The tale is intriguing which adds to the worthwhile-ness of the read.

I like near-future ecofiction and I like playing around in fiction with utopias, dystopias, and planned communities.

How can you plan for these communities to last through what you expect will be a grim future?

It depicts is a future we want to avoid, made more frightening because it is populated by people who are so ordinary and banal.
