84K- Emily St John Mandel

***SHORTLISTED FOR THE PHILIP K. DICK AWARD***

From one of the most original new voices in modern fiction comes a startling vision of a world where you can get away with anything . . .

Theo Miller knows the value of human life – to the very last penny.

Working in the Criminal Audit Office, he assesses each crime that crosses his desk and makes sure the correct debt to society is paid in full.

But when his ex-lover is killed, it’s different. This is one death he can’t let become merely an entry on a balance sheet.

Because when the richest in the world are getting away with murder, sometimes the numbers just don’t add up.

    Review from Book Club Meeting:
    This book provoked some strong opinions; many members hated this book. The style of writing, which includes unfinished sentences, was not to everyone’s liking. The timeline jumped around which was also a problem to most members. The dystopian storyline was considered pretty grim and depressing to read. Most members found they couldn’t gel with any of the characters.
    Several members gave the book a higher score than they had thought they might after our interesting discussion tonight. However 50% of members scored the book 1 star.
    Overall members awarded this book 2 stars
