Freedom Club
by Saul Garnell
Hotspur, $14.95, 414pp
Release Date: December 31, 2011

This is a debut novel from a new publisher.

The world is ruled by sentient beings, AIs that also have some control over human thought. The world is dominated by consumerism, technology, and discontent. The Freedom Club is an opposition force where the lines are blurred between terrorist, freedom fighter, hero and madmen. Only they are threatening the Sentient ruled society. They can use technology to win battles, but communication is lacking within the cell system structure. Can their reform work?

This is a page turner. Philosophy and religion are caught up in the logic of the sentient minds which in turn ignores human needs as they threaten the very meaning of life. There is action, subversion, twists and turns. It also is thought-provoking; giving the reader possible futures rooted in today’s world. It welcomes re-reading as perspectives change. If you have read John Brunner, you will enjoy this book. It is a must have for your library. ~~ Pam Allan
