‘We haven’t elected a Prime Minister, we’ve elected a lifestyle’.
As the fourth decade of the 21st century looms, new PM Guy Morrissey and his fitness guru wife Mona (hashtag MoMo) are hailed as the motivational couple to get the UK #FitForWork, with Mona promising to ‘change the BMI of the nation’.
Lita Stone is an influential blogger and social media addict, who watches as Guy and Mona’s policies become increasingly ruthless. Unemployment and homelessness are out of control. The solution? Vast new compounds all over the country, to house those who can no longer afford to keep a roof over their heads.
These are the Hope Villages, financed by US corporation Nutricorp.
Lita and her flatmates Nick and Kendall feel safe in their cosy cyberspace world. Unaware of how swiftly bad luck can snowball, they suspect little of the danger that awaits the unfortunate, behind the carefully constructed mirage of Hope.
Terry Tyler’s nineteenth published work is a psychological thriller that weaves through the darker side of online life, as the gap between the haves and the have-nots grows ever wider. Whether or not it will mirror a dystopian future that awaits us, we will have to wait and see.
The Project Renova series by Terry Tyler reintroduced me to dystopian fiction. I’m a huge fan of The Stand by Stephen King but apart from that book have largely stayed away from dystopian books. However, became completely hooked on Terry Tyler’s Project Renova book series, eagerly awaiting each book to be released.
Reading the first few pages of Terry’s new dystopian book Hope, felt a tad disappointed that it wasn’t about the characters I’d come to love, but soon became absolutely HOOKED on the story and characters within that I read it non stop until the very end. I sincerely hope that Hope is the start of a new series
Read the blurb because I’m not going to rehash any of that in review. Terry Tyler is such a good writer, a people watcher and a society observer. Tyler is uncannily aware of the troubling social issues we face in this country that could take us forward into an uncertain future with many different scenarios that could take place and evolve our society here. The scenario in Hope is one of them. Read it and be aware!
