ABOUT THE BOOK
Ajay often wondered where Tulo would be without the invention of SkipSleep. Back when people used to sleep more, progress was so much slower. Then after SkipSleep, the City just flew.
Ajay Ambers is the perfect Tulo citizen. His climbing merit score, prestigious job, and a host of merit-making friends, all help him get closer to the Glorified Quarters - home to the most Worthy in Tulo. With a Glorified-born girlfriend at his side and a natural talent for technology, Ajay happily settles into the life of success and ambition, without the fear of becoming Unworthy.
However, as the true brutality of the system takes hold, will that fear ultimately destroy him? A new dystopian book series, this novel explores themes of success, work and relationships through coming-of-age characters, who navigate a society controlled by technology and demonstrations of each person's worth. Comparisons can be drawn with Huxley's Brave New World, Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go and concepts presented in Netflix's Black Mirror.
