Diane Read the Fourth Sage written by Stefan Bolz. From the very first page, I was hooked. I could not stop reading this book and creating images as the words became clear in my mind's eye. What a writer. What a book. I recommend it to all of you who believe in big brother and large corporations.... its scary. But great.

message 3: by Greg (new)

Greg Hickey Great list! I had published my own list of the best dystopian novels a couple years ago but figured I should update it. So here are the best dystopian novels of 2016 and 2017 based on curated lists from the Huffington Post, Vulture, Publishers Weekly and more, suggestions from readers on Goodreads and Reddit and ratings on Goodreads and Amazon: https://www.greghickeywrites.com/best....
