About The Book
Imagine a world without hunger. With clothing and shelter for everyone. A world that is never too warm or too cold. A world where there are no decisions to be made, because everything is decided upon for the inhabitants.
A utopia? Or a prison? Because paradise has a price.
The story of one man: the last who can read the secret language of the machine that created the City - the last man who can change it.
