I normally like Glynn’s novels and yet this one was hard to read, I’m not quite sure what makes it so, it hits all the usual beats and while the subject was grim it honestly wasn’t explored enough for in such a way as to disgust, alarm or honestly elicit any reaction perhaps that’s why it wasn’t interesting or enjoyable. As of late I’ve seen Glynn address social issues more and more this could be considered laudable yet as I read his latest works I’ve come to realise it’s only skin deep, a Twitter, social media approach to lgbtq and race issues that neither understands nor seeks to understand us (though people in the future more or less not caring is a nice touch) it’s through a similar lens that human trafficking and exploitation is depicted in this novel, Glynn tells us it’s bad and why but the impact is seldom explored in the characters and where it is there is no conflict, no extreme trauma and little effect on the characters actions it feels only skin deep. I understand it’s hard to research and discuss to explore what people who struggled with these circumstances go through but if you cannot or have trouble expressing it, you maybe shouldn’t write about it.
Nothing really new in this book, didn't think was going to finish it but struggled my way through. The protagonist story for running is completely unbelievable since the author doesn't explain if they won or lost were winning or losing so there is a big hole. The author is more interested in being "Woke" than writing an actual story. This is the second book I've read from this author and it's the same boring story in both so I will not be reading any more since from what I've researched you read one abs well you read then all just switch pronouns fro MR, Mrs, Mam and Sir to Ser and Em then you just make random lead characters homosexual and that's the authors books. Some might like but I'm more of a story not point of view person would rather read a book about something besides the authors political or "Woke" beliefs.
