When I was first approached (by email) to review Concrete Operational, I was quite intrigued. This was the first time I'd accepted something of the sort; i.e. a book that had it's own accompanying album and art book.

Echoing the future dystopias of Huxley and Orwell, this novel manages to put a new spin on the idea of a humanity forced to succumb to a greater power.

A brilliant piece of Science fiction and an enthralling read which incorporates awesome future landscapes, environments and technologies. This book makes you feel like a voyeur in the future space in which it is set. I often want to go back for another look! A great investment for fans of Philip K. Dick.
