Imaginative Futuristic Utopia
Hollow World by Michael J Sullivan
I already have. It is a great book that tackles many contemporary issues and questions - such as religion (and violence in the name of religion), love,homophobia, indiviualism - and many more. It tackles them with compassion, tasteful humour and without over-indulgent sentimentality or preaching.
I suppose the obvious comparison would be H G Wells' 'The Time Machine', although the subject of the future of humanity and the planet is handled differently. Both are thought provoking, 'Hollow World' is not afraid to make the reader smile - or even laugh.
The reveal about why Ellis Rogers carries so much guilt about his son's suicide.
I will be listening to and reading this again. It was a very enjoyable book.
