LoveReading Expert Review of Moxyland

As with much science fiction Moxyland gets scarily close to reality, the all to familiar and what might not actually be a million miles away from where we are now. Gritty seems an overused word but that’s what this book is. It’s cool, imaginative, un-nerving and unputdownable. A new author we will follow with great interest and hope you will too.

Moxyland Synopsis

Weit du, wer wirklich die Kontrolle hat?Kapstadt in der nahen Zukunft: Eine neue Form der Apartheid hat Einzug gehalten - zwischen Arm und Reich, zwischen Online und Offline. In dieser repressiven Welt kreuzen sich die Wege von vier grundverschiedenen Menschen: der Fotografin Kendra, die nach einer Injektion mit Nanobots als lebende Werbeflche herumluft; des hedonistischen Videobloggers Toby, der in den Sog eines mysterisen Online-Computerspiels gert; der systemkonformen Programmiererin Lerato - und von Tendeka, dem romantischen Antikapitalisten, der nichts Geringeres plant, als das System zu strzen Ein Zukunftsthriller von einer der aufregendsten Autorinnen des Genres, und ein Roman mit erschreckend aktuellem Thema: der Verlust der Freiheit in einer technikhrigen Welt - nominiert fr den Sunday Times Fiction Prize. Von der Autorin der internationalen Bestseller "e;Shining Girls"e; und "e;Broken Monsters"e;. "e;Moxyland tut Dinge - und das meisterhaft - von denen Autoren anderer Science-Fiction-Romane nicht einmal trumen. Sehr, sehr gut."e; (William Gibson)
