The Machine Society : Rich or Poor. They Want You to be a Prisoner Paperback / softback

Description

Mike Brooks' debut novel is an adventure story set in a dystopian future in which our taste for branding, consumerism and artificial reality is boundless.

In /The Machine Society/, he weaves together psychological insight, philosophical reflection and spiritual inquiry to give us a novel that is both a deep satire on modern life and a rich metaphor for our longing to find inner peace.

Dean Rogers lives in the Perimeter of New London, holding down a soul-destroying job, surrounded by people who have lost the will to communicate.

He is afraid his debts will spiral out of control, resulting in him being cast out of the city, outside of the Security Wall.

Meanwhile, in the Better Life Complex, New London's rich elite live in plastic luxury, unaware of the sinister secrets that underpin their world. /The Machine Society/ is an original and intelligent sci-fi thriller, and a heartfelt rally cry for the soul's liberation.
