Ian Thompsonabout this book: Set in the future in a land now ruled by Health and Safety overlords, this is satirical look at what would happen if out governments continue to coddle us and strip us of personal responsibility. The year is 2060 and the majority of the populace of the UK live under vast domes where all risk has been eliminated. Those left to fend for themselves survive in pockets surrounding the domes, called The Outreaches.
Abraham Pope loves his risk-free life under the dome.
One morning, Pope turns up for work at the Ministry of Legislation and is surprised to find his co-workers queued up outside (in neat order of course). Upon entering, he spies the reason – a leak. Charged with the job of fixing the drip, while conforming to every health and safety directive, Pope has to turn to The Outreaches to find a plumber.
Phil Lud answers his call, and the chaos begins.
All, however, is not as it seems within the dome's confines, and both Pope and Lud are drawn into a conspiracy that lurks in its shadows. Can Pope and Lud get the leak fixed? Will Pope survive once he falls into the clutches of the ruthless Mr Hendrickx?
All in all, this was a fun book to write because of the humour, and it was a rewarding book to write because of the social message. My first revue on Amazon summed it up perfectly.
"This political satire about a Totalistic, Utopian society where there is no need to think or take any personal responsibility in the "safer" world hits a home run in both entertainment value and as a profound statement on current societal issues."
