If you’re looking for a new book to read and you’re tired of the standard “overdone” stories, I’ve got a treat for you today.
A new book from author Geoffrey Alexander offers a fresh take on dystopian fiction.
In Visions of a Reject, Alexander offers a glimpse into a future society where there’s no more free will and people struggle to find individual identities among the masses.
The story is a little dark for sure, but it’ll suck you right in from the very first word! The momentum is driven by both the amazingly individual voice you’ll find in Alexander’s writing style and a plot that won’t quit.
There are tones of Brave New World, one of my favorite books of all time, and the characters are sharply realistic and well-developed. And Alexander’s dry sense of humor tops it all off – it’s an amazing read and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for something that will keep you on the edge of your seat and make you think at the same time.
America’s foundation is crumbling, and life is no longer recognizable. A dismal existence is all that’s left. Plagued with lifelessness and disease, the world is deteriorating fast.
Gabriel Jones is caught in the middle. Just your average Joe, trying to find his place in this hopeless society, Gabriel is on the verge of knowing. Knowing the truth, and uncovering reality in a world that no longer makes any sense, where nothing is certain, not even our existence.
People are no longer in control of their own lives, but rather mindless pawns in the game of high-level, institutionalized deception with ulterior motives and global consequences. Knowledge and bounty have been replaced with darkness and drought as only a chosen few roam in search of a key to restore light and order to things.
Gabriel makes a rapid descent into this world of illusion, blind allegiance, and mind-numbing exercises in futility that leave him questioning his sanity. He’s unable to understand the things going on around him, passing from life to death, then back again.
But the question remains, can Gabriel do anything about it?
