Publisher's Summary

As Trafford Sewell struggles to work through the usual crowds of commuters, he is confronted by the intimidating figure of his Parish Confessor. Why has Trafford not been streaming his every moment of sexual intimacy onto the community website like everybody else? Does he think he's different or special in some way? Better than his fellow man and woman? Does he have something to hide?
Imagine a world where everyone knows everything about everybody. Where what a person 'feels' and 'truly believes' is protected under the law, while what is rational, even provable is condemned as heresy. A world where to question ignorance and intolerance is to commit a Crime against Faith.
Ben Elton's dark, savagely comic novel imagines a post-apocalyptic society where religious intolerance combines with a confessional sex obsessed, self-centric culture to create a world where nakedness is modesty, ignorance is wisdom and privacy is a dangerous perversion. A chilling vision of what's to come? Or something rather closer to what we call reality?

Hard to read

Well to be honest the story is a cautionary tale about societies addiction to ones self! So for me this book was hard to read/listen to it has some very crude language and talks about sex in a very demeaning way. I found it very tasteless and provocative. The story could've been great I really thought it the author could've written a better story with some of his ideas. I felt the author sees the absolute worse in people! And that's what I had in the front of my mind the entire time with this book.
