it was amazing

This is a really enjoyable and timely near future dystopian novel where residents have their whereabouts continually accessible to anyone who wishes to find out where they are. Every aspect of their daily health and wellbeing lives is controlled and monitored by iMe. Until, for a few individuals, it isn't. I found it very interesting that the author chose to set his novel in the Uk instead of the more usual countries where there seems to be a lot of monitoring and censoring already happening. This gave the novel a refreshing change of outlook and gave me pause to reflect on what may be happening here that I don't stop to consider, as the focus is often on other countries. I was given a copy of the second in the series for review on Netgalley and although they are standalone novels I am glad I bought and read this one first. I am very much looking forward to No Signal (book 2) which I am starting next.
