Fascinating and shocking, I hope there are more books coming. I love Lord Of The Flies-esque stories, this one I will definitely read again.

OK, so first things first. It took me such a long time to finish this book! When I started it still had its old cover - the new one is an absolute bomb!

It's strong and gripping. Eden is one of the few leading characters out there with foibles and flaws. She is realistic. She makes mistakes; there are consequences. ...more

Dystopian Survivor is the best way to describe Moneyland for me. Botur explores the greedy desperation that is human existence.
