The Blueprint trilogy takes us to a future in which men and women are almost identical, and personal relationships are forbidden. Following a bio-terrorist attack, the population now lives within comfortable Citidomes. MindValues advocate acceptance and non-attachment. The BodyPerfect cult encourages a tall thin androgynous appearance, and looks are everything. This first ...more

I LOVED this book! Read it over a period of 24 hours, hated having to put it down.

The story takes place in year 2181. 120 years after various events that devastated the world as we know it, the chosen people of 'State 11', formerly the UK, reside in 'Citidomes', in which their lives are easy, comfortable - and controlled. Residents live not in families or couples but with their selected 'resmates', and aspire to join the BodyPerfect clan: women who look like anorexic supermodels, men so metrosex

It’s the latter half of the 22nd century and the population of the UK, now known as State 11, live in Citidomes, controlled environments in which everyone is encouraged to look, think and act in a certain way. The inhabitants are dominated by Mind Values which suppress negative emotions to facilitate a peaceful but subjugated existence. Emotional attachments and regular relationships are prevented. Accommodation comprises four resmates to each unit with no outward signs of friendships, people ar ...more

The year is 2181 and 17 year old Caia is beginning her first job with the Ministry of State 11 which used to be called London. But State 11 is very different to the London that we know today. The citizens live in isolated Citidomes, marriage and sex are outlawed, and people are discouraged from becoming too attached to each other, asking too many questions, or feeling any kind of intense emotion. There is no such thing as religion and children are created by artificial methods. The citizens of S ...more

What a terrific debut novel! Katrina Mountfort has created a fascinating and frightening future, cleverly developing many of the negative aspects of today's society into a disturbing and believable conclusion. Yet, despite the darkness, Future Perfect, an apt and ironic title, is a beautifully written story of love, discovery and hope as we follow Caia, the heroine, on her traumatic journey. I can't wait for the next instalment of the trilogy.

The storyline of Future Perfect is heart-breaking in its truthfulness. It is a realistic storyline of life in a government collapse-and-realignment constructed dystopian setting, where life is hard and decisions are harder. I treasured Future Perfect's closeness to reality, the nearest to realistic that you can get for a futuristic dystopian world. The book explores the effects of oppression on humanity's natural instincts. Society has narrowed everyone's horizons into Citidomes, a proposed perf

Four very well deserved stars for this creepy vision of a false Utopia. Inside the Citidomes, everything is provided for each citizen - residences, companionship in the form of contacts and resmates, food appropriate to each individuals needs and meaningful work. Well, meaningful to the individual.

Caia is dissatisfied and has started to question her apparently perfect life before she even realizes it. Sure she has everything she technically needs and there are luxuries like 'bliss' (a drug that

Katrina Mountfort's Future Perfect was a pleasant surprise for me. It's one of the most entertaining and intriguing young adult science fiction novels I've read during the last couple of years. The story was so entertaining that it kept me glued to the novel until I reached the last page (this seldom happens when I read this YA science fiction).

Future Perfect is one of those rare sci-fi novels that can be recommended to both adults and young adults alike. It

I have to admit, give me the old tale of a ‘perfect’ future society confined to a city encased beneath under a huge dome, and I’m sold – and Future Perfect certainly did not disappoint.

Future Perfect pays homage to a wealth of classic SF in its influences, and really doesn’t try and hide the fact. This really is a modern take on classic utopian/dystopian scenarios, but its originality really lies in the subtleties, such as the satirical takes on Social Media, Reality TV and the celebrity obsessi

Future Perfect is a great YA dystopian satire of today's shallow, celeb-infatuated culture. It's the late 22nd Century. After a biological terrorist attack the bulk of humanity live in secluded domes. All strive to reach the pinnacle of body perfect status, an androgynous state that leaves little difference between the sexes. It is a perfect world where everything is provided for but relationships are forbidden and friendships frowned upon. The majority are happy to live this way, spending the t ...more

“In the year 2525…

…if man is still alive. If woman can survive.”

In ‘Future Perfect’ it’s not quite 2525 but about 150 years into the future. Man is still alive and woman has survived, but love, attachment and ‘coupling’ between the two is strictly forbidden.

Teenager Caia is a scientist in this brave new world, living in a Citidome, which protects from the cruel and dirty outside world, together with ‘resmates’ who strive to achieve BodyPerfect status – superthin and androgynous. Caia is drawn to

Following a bio-terrorist attack, the population now lives within domes where men and women are almost identical, personal relationships and attachment are forbidden, a BodyPerfect cult dictates the appearance to which everyone is striving, religion has been replaced with Mind Values. Every thought and action is monitored and controlled. People conform through fear. Curiosity is dangerous.

Unfortunately, Caia, the protagonist, has a habit of asking too many questions. She knows she shouldn’t take

I was born in Leeds. After several years collecting qualifications, I started work as a scientist. My philosophy of life is that we only regret the things we don’t try, and my career reflects that. So far, I’ve been a civil service scientist, homeopath, forensic science researcher and currently work as a freelance medical writer. In that time I’ve lived in Liverpool, Ipswich, Norwich, London and n ...more
