Genesis Genesis by Bernard Beckett
My review
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is just a fantastic novel, which will probably get overlooked for the reason that someone decided it should be classified as “young adult.” I guess at 35 years of age, I still qualify, because I loved it. A fascinating look at a post-apocalyptic society which isolated itself on an island, the novel takes some interesting twists, which I admit I only half figured out before they were revealed. In the end, the questions Bernard Beckett forces us to face – what makes us human, what makes us different from other animals, or even robots of sufficiently sophisticated programming – are given new spins which force the reader to question their own identity and purpose. A must read.
