Set in the future, in the fictional land of Aradmore, this audiobook chronicles the struggles of James, Helena, and their family. After a climate disaster, society is now run by a group of corporate leaders called the Titans, who live in gleaming cities while ordinary workers, like James and Helena, are forced to live on reservations. All laws are made by - and all privileges are held by - the Titans.
Residents of the reservation struggle to survive. Citizens are not allowed to live past the age of 75. James and Helena decide they must break away. They leave on a trek to the district of Greenfields, where they can start their lives over again.
Greenfields is the thrilling story of how one family fights to overcome social injustice.

An Interesting Dystopia
What I found interesting in this book was the look at how food shortages cause wretchedness and desperation. Other futuristic novels (like 1984) emphasize the loss of liberty in a totalitarian regime, but it is the food shortages that are felt most keenly and that destroy all quality of life. The characters are depicted with wry, satirical humor that makes this story an entertaining listen. It moves along nicely with many different settings. The narrator is excellent. If you like dystopias like 1984 and The Giver, you will enjoy this.
