SUMMARY:

With nature reclaiming cities and mountainous tides drowning islands, a group of individuals — known collectively as the We — find themselves ravaged by hunger and struggling to survive. When another community — the They — promise them luxurious meals, the We are unable to decline.

The BookViral Review:

With far too many novels seeming to come from the recycling bin these days, The We and the They proves cut from new cloth and wholly original. A commanding and absorbing read throughout, it’s sure to engender much serious reflection as Dawkins spins a tale full of powerfully emotive images that demand a slow read.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world it’s a sobering read and yet refreshingly devoid of trite commentary as Dawkins traverses complex moral ground with depictions of global famine, struggle and refugee displacement that are not too far removed from some events of today. Rich in detail and pulling her readers into an ever immersive storyline. Her characters are well developed and cleverly nuanced and yet it’s their essence rather than presence that draws us to them. This creates a powerful emotional centre which reminds us what it means to be human. Of our need for love and companionship, but above all a sense of belonging and the inherent need to keep seeking it, despite all odds.

An extraordinary addition to the genre and a powerful introduction to the mind of Kyra Ann Dawkins, The We and the They has all the hallmarks of a classic and is recommended without reservation.

How Science Fiction Authors Are Shaping Our Future

As fantastical as science fiction seems, there is often something familiar about the incredible concepts dreamt up by its writers. In fact, not only familiar at times but eerily accurate about future advances. Is this some kind of scientific prophesy? Is there something sinister going on?

Authors writing about prejudice and racism in literature

Whilst the issues of prejudice and discrimination are multi-faceted and complicated beyond belief, a key moment for me was the day I picked up ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’. Harper Lee implicitly drilled down the relative unfairness of human existence into my 12-year-old brain, creating a sense of outrage that has stayed with me throughout my life.
