's review

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 the risk as she seems to have it all. She’s highly educated, works in an important research role for the Government, known as the ‘Ministry’, and is surrounded by the luxuries of a dome. However, she feels a freak as a normal-shaped woman and fights to keep her attraction to one of her imperfect co-workers hidden, something that becomes increasingly difficult once she realises her feelings are reciprocated. When he introduces her to illegal, subversive thinking, something that fuels her curious mind, she is drawn into a forbidden world and, when the pair are sent on a mission outside the dome, her life changes irreversibly.

This isn’t just a story. Albeit extreme, it’s a comment on society. It warns of what could happen if our relentless drive for perfection and destructive tendencies continue.
