Author Lidia Yuknavitch has created her latest work of dystopian fiction, titled The Book of Joan. This book explains Earth’s fictional past from the perspective of the future, and details the peril that the planet has found itself in, as a high tech industry seeks to remove all resources from the planet. The main character is determined to share the history of the title character – so determined, that she burns it into her own skin. While it may not make for a light read, it is an innovative and thoughtful analysis of what it means to be human, and what it means to be a hero.
- Post-prophetically catastrophic fiction time after time pays lip administration to major issues like environmental change while enabling the peruser to leave unscathed.
- CIEL conveys the last remainders of mankind, purpose on wrecking the Earth underneath by redirecting anything of significant worth through “undetectable innovative umbilical lines” called Skylines.
- One is Trinculo Forsythe, who made CIEL yet has experienced years of detainment and torment and is presently planned for execution on fabricated charges.
“The novel opens in 2049, then looks back at a past that is our future. Earth has been devastated by global warming, a crisis exacerbated by incessant warfare over scarce resources.”
