The Generation - Holly Cave

In 2052 London, Genetics decide everything. A scan just after your birth decides your life as it tells you exactly what you'll grow up to be. A terrorist attack might finally uncover something big, very big.


I liked the setting: London and the invisible, but ever so present State, controlling everyone. The questions it rises: to what extend predict our genes who we are going to be, is an interesting one. Near the end of the story, there are some shocking revelations and it all worked together quite nice.


My biggest problem with the story was that it took quite some time for me to actually get into the story. The story isn't that long and when I was reading I was enjoying myself. But, whenever I had to stop reading it was too easy. (And I had trouble starting again). Perhaps this is because in the beginning quite a lot happens all at once and it was a bit confusing at times.


In all, an interesting novel which raises some interesting questions (I won't go too much into detail since I don't want to spoil anything). You'll have to get through the start but then you'll enjoy the rest of the story.


Thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
