P M Thomasabout this book: "Humanity Lost" a poignant and straight to the point title that reflects the story at hand.
It is a beautiful, powerful and romantic love story about the greatest gifts of all: "humanity" and "love" and what it means to hold it so dear and never let anyone steal it from you, no matter the cost and no matter the peril. And when you love someone and cherish what makes you human, you won't give that away for anything or anyone and will stop at nothing to spend your life with that special someone.
It is a story about freewill, a thing often taken for granted in the modern and past worlds, and how if you take that fully away from society we become nothing more than living carbon based machines working without a keen purpose, just existing and reproducing to serve efficiency. Making love not out of deep passionate emotions that must be expressed between two souls in love but to fill a primitive sexual need. To live without warmth, love and emotions, we might as well be robots.
The computers installed in every home in the future to maintain the lives of the occupants is a metaphor that if we keep being dependent on technology one day it's going to control our lives.
A unique thing about this book is that it is a different kind of dystopian future, instead of bleak cities with oppressive forces, it is a haven, a bright positive utopia with a police force no different from ours. Scratch the surface and look behind the curtain to the utopia and it's peaceful image is an illusion controlled by a tyrannical government known only as The System that monitor the lives of the citizens and make certain everyone is under suppression by a chemical agent holding back human nature deemed flawed and dangerous in their eyes. Any sign of humanity and the civilian is taken away to a rehabilitation centre to have their uniqueness removed and become just like the masses, a human without an identity, a human without humanity.
If you're a fan of science fiction or love a good romance story "Humanity Lost" is the book for you
I hope you enjoy it and feel enriched by the powerful, beautiful emotions.
