Publisher's Summary

In the near future, humanity has experienced a great schism. The larger part is ruled by instinct and pleasure: they are ageless, beautiful yet wholly dependent on technology designed by previous generations to sustain them.
Having no social structure or self-consciousness to speak of, to the minority they are simply known as the Others. But into this unmarked, timeless community walks Fred, the first visitor from a far-off land. His people are the N-Ps, governed by logic, revolted by the mindless, unfettered solipsism of the Others.
In all respects a model N-P, as Fred conducts his studies, he finds himself caught in an awkward relationship with his test subjects. Fred begins to feel for the childlike members of the Dwelling he observes.
Embracing their gaudy, hyper-real life of screens and implants, Fred begins to be changed himself, even as he begins to affect the minds of these Others in ways that may not be to their benefit.

Excellent narration build of protagonists excellen

Would you consider the audio edition of 2121 to be better than the print version?

Jumping from character to character was an interesting presentation for this book, the content was a little heavy to start with but enthralling.

What did you like best about this story?

The all Emersing feeling I had whilst listening it was full concentration kind of book !

Which character – as performed by Zara Ramm and Daniel Pirrie – was your favourite?

SIMM

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The point at which simm realized she was becoming a PERSON she had an Identity <br/>I wondere at that point if the youth of today every reach that realisation???

Any additional comments?

Purely for that point alone !! <br/>It should be read at six form level M<br/>Oh gosh how old am I

True Science Fiction

Anyone who has read Susan Greenfield's other (non-fiction) books will be familiar with her explorations of consciousness and the mind. This story does the same, but uses imagination to project two directions of our current society forward to their extreme conclusions. Unlike simple admonishments about 'screen-time' or exaltations to mindfulness, her characters depict a complex tension that does not always play out as you expect. The book is grounded in her research and teaching style, but explains all scientific terms as they are first used keeping it accessible. Definitely not a simple leisure book, but an impressive and creative thought experiment that will leave you thinking.
