The story is full of complex and varied characters, this was a feat in itself and in the book's world any actual interactions was frowned upon, to the extent that P. McGewan-XO4, or Pat, is actually surprised to see his wife working as a nurse in the hospital, he had no idea that his wife lived in the same city as their interactions were limited to calls. The story actually starts getting interesting when Pat meets Sameer when he is out looking for medicines for his headache. This interaction further leads him to a library where he meets Herb, who helps Pat through his journey of discovering himself and the lies that the Government has been feeding him.
The most fascinating aspect of the novel is that even though this story is born from the figment of the author's imagination, it brings out a lot of parallels to kind of habits, the media influence and the political climate that we see in countries around the world. Media has now become powerful, and each channel would go to extreme lengths to twist facts to create sensationalism.
Even though the book is set in futuristic America, it appealed to me as an Indian as the issues that the author has highlighted are what many countries are experiencing as well. The overall story line and the message that has been given is truly global.
L.I.F.E. in the 23rd Century is a dystopian story that is well written and has a strong story line. The author manages to draw parallels to what we see around the world and makes us think about the impact of our actions. I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars and recommend it to everyone who likes fiction, more specifically, reading about dystopian worlds.
