Publisher's Summary

Imagine a world where everyone knows everything about everybody. Where what a person "feels" and "truly believes" is protected under the law, while what is rational, even provable, is condemned as heresy. A world where to question ignorance and intolerance is to commit a Crime against Faith. Imagine it. Or just wait until After the Flood.

On a hot Sagittarian morning in the year 56 ATF, Trafford Sewell struggles to work through the usual crowds of near-naked commuters. He is confronted by the intimidating figure of his Parish Confessor. Why has Trafford not been streaming his every moment of sexual intimacy onto the community website like everybody else? Does he think he's different or special in some way? Better than his fellow man and woman? Does he have something to hide?

Ben Elton's dark, savagely comic novel imagines a post-apocalyptic society where religious intolerance combines with a confessional, sex obsessed, self-centric culture to create a world where nakedness is modesty, ignorance is wisdom, and privacy is a dangerous perversion. A chilling vision of what's to come? Or something rather closer to what we call reality?

    "Oh Dear...This was awful"

    I have read Ben Elton a few times before and really liked the books. This one however was absolutely awful. A bit like 1984 (which I loved) but not nearly as enjoyable, or believable for that matter, certainly not in the league of George Orwell. The narration was also terrible and this probably added to the misery I endured, his voice was so loud and booming that no matter how low I turned the volume my ears were still ringing...to emphasise what he was saying his voice seemed to boom out across the speakers. I have to say I feel this was a complete waste of my money.

    "Wonderfull - wished it was longer"

    This is a great story, a projection into our possible near future if things carry on the way that they are going. The internet has become ingrained in the lives of the characters and there is a possibility that things are not what they seem. The writing is wonderful, the narration is exceptional. You really feal for the characters and pick up the story and subtle plot - its a great ride.
