Joss Sheldon’s Individutopia is hinged on Margaret Thatcher’s famous words, “There is no such thing as society.” Sheldon takes a futuristic look at what life will look like in 2084, about 65 tears from now.
Renee is a 24-year old Londoner is extremely self-indulged. Her entire life is surrounded by her own improved image, and she even wakes up to the sound recording of her own voice. She is oblivious to the existence of others and sees everyone else as her competition.
Her entire days are spent in pursuit of short- term jobs and she does not see how she can ever pay off her debt. She has avatars and other tech devises to help her function and was even raised by a robot after being abandoned by her mother.
She represents everyone else who strives to get ahead in the city. Every time, she leaves her pod, she is even further in debt. She moves in a stark world where there is little contact with others, but this is the only life she knows until something happens.
She wanders outside the city limits and gets lost. She sees trees and hears birds for the first time and yes, even meets other human beings. This all so foreign to her but will she like it? Will she stay and learn that maybe there is a society? Can she even cope with this strange, new world?
Read Joss Sheldon’s Individutopia and see how things turn out for our Renee. This book will make you see parts of your own life and certainly make you think, think, think!
