Salt - Maurice Gee


For more senior readers, Gee's latest is a look at a future which is grim indeed.

Society has fallen into chaos and the 'Company' controls all apects of life. Company families live in heavily protected compounds and inter-marry to maintain their superiority. The rest of the population tries to survive amidst the ruins and rubbish of the now destroyed cities, many living like animals and in fear of their lives. The 'Company' maintains its dominance by enforced slave labour in the mines - few ever return.

What happens when the system is challenged? A riveting tale.
