Product description


With style and voice and a wicked grip that never lets the three-way plot spiral out of control...Painted in shades of Fahrenheit 451, of Children of Men, Soylent Green and Brave New World.

-- "NPR"

A furious, confrontational book that's extremely smart...Its energy is infectious, and its ideas are fiercely provocative.

-- "SciFiNow"

A story about the value of one human life...North is an original and even dazzling writer, and fans of her work will enjoy this grim tale of capitalism taken to a terrifying extreme.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

A terrifying setting that feels rooted to the present day.... Imbued with a menace that feels both recognizable and urgent, and the decisions the characters make as a result feel uncomfortably real.

-- "RT Book Reviews"

Aa vicious, engrossing portrait of unregulated capitalism carried to its logical conclusion...84K is absorbing and timely; a book to wrestle and argue with but, first and foremost, to read.

-- "New York Times Book Review"

An eerily plausible dystopian masterpiece, as harrowing as it is brilliant.

-- "Emily St. John Mandel, New York Times bestselling author "

An extraordinary novel that stands with the best of dystopian fiction, from Riddley Walker to Nineteen Eighty-Four to The Chrysalids, with dashes of The Handmaid's Tale.

-- "Cory Doctorow, New York Times bestselling author"

Another captivating novel from one of the most intriguing and genre-bending novelists currently working in the intersection between thriller and science fiction.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"
