Started really well and has an interesting concept for a story. Perhaps a bit illogical, but it’s fiction so you let these things go. The character building is good. The world is semi-real (the author explains at the end of the book). Where it fell down for me is the first half of the book flowed well, but it felt somewhat disconnected from the second half. I was left wondering if the author had an extended break during the writing of this book.
3 stars. It’s a fairly quick read. I enjoyed it.

Eugenic Britain imagined.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 April 2018
This was a cracking read with an fascinating premise on how the application of a state sponsored eugenics programme might play out in a dystopian not-too-distant future. The plot moves along fast from start to finish, the characters drawn into a tense drama with shady government officials, right wing extremists and a social divide reminiscent of existing and past apartheids and socioeconomic separation of different classes of citizen. But when this is all staged in a typical English seaside town rather than in some developing country it makes it all the more sinister. One thing I do know is that it is crying out for a sequel.
Interesting take on dystopia futureReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 February 2018
I bought this book because I like a good muse about the future and where we're heading both as a nation and the world. The idea of men being sterilised is a new one for me so I read this story with interest. It definitely helped to read the explanations at the end which answered the questions I had in my head and also showed the author up to be rather clever in the way he constructed the story. The only aspect I didn't enjoy was the swearing but aside from that, it was well worth it.
