recently started: Genesis by Bernard Beckett

Yesterday, I started reading Genesis by Bernard Beckett. I first heard about it from Michelle who had recently added it to her own TBR pile. It is a futuristic novel. It is not set too far into the future, as far as I can tell so far–maybe in the 2300s at the latest. Anaximander, the main character, speaks of 2075 as being awhile ago. Which leads me to believe it is maybe only a few hundred years later.

Anyway, I have always liked these futuristic novels, such as The Giver and Anthem. I cannot tell as of yet if this book is to be a dystopic novel, like those two I just mentioned. We shall see. I really like it so far. It goes quickly and is a short book, so I don’t foresee it taking me long to finish.
