Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sheldon's gloriously colourful writing makes leaping from our world to Individutopia's wholly believable... (It's) like the book is speaking to you, and you alone... The roller coaster ride it creates is stomach churning. Suffice to say, Sheldon has once again created a fictional masterpiece grounded in an unnerving reality. Engaging, thought-provoking, and morally arousing, Individutopia serves as a stark warning about where we'll end up if we don't change... One of the most important books of 2018"
THE CANARY

"Time will tell if Sheldon's prophesies come to pass. The novel will do well to predict the future as well as novels such as 1984. But one thing is for certain, even now. This rebellious author has spun
an exciting tale, filled with twists and turns that will make you want to finish this book in a single sitting. The plot is as well-formed, short and snappy, as any of the great works which have come before it. It really is a modern classic in the making."
THE DALLAS SUN

"Dystopian novels, whilst set in the future, are designed to
reflect the present... That's why Joss Sheldon's new novel, Individutopia, is so relevant. Unlike the great works that came before it, it doesn't contain a big state or dictator. It's set in a neoliberal dystopia; a world in which there is no such thing as society, no-one talks or looks at anyone else, and everyone competes to be the best. Everyone has become their own dictator...Individutopia is one of those books you'll want to read again and again. You'll take something new from it each time you do, scratch your head, and say "Oh... Yeah... Oh yeah!""
MEDIUM

"The author has built an
incredibly rich and well-developed dystopian world... It's very hard to write a sympathetic character in a world where no sympathy exists, but Renee's evolution and eventual exit from Individutopia are believable, and her slow discovery of her humanity is riveting."
THE BOOKLIFE PRIZE, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"What follows is
an exhilarating ride, as the story ratchets through the gears. Just when it seems one thing will happen, something unexpected changes the course of the narrative. There are more twists and turns than in a piece of fusilli, but it all comes together, and makes sense, right up until the very last, tear-jerking line of the book...A must-read for fans of the genre."
THE BAY NET

"Joss Sheldon's
outstanding dystopian novel "Individutopia" makes the reader think twice about the 21st century cult to individualism and shows what it would be to live in I-person world... The main hero - Renee Ann Blanca, reveals the author's skill at masterful characterization. Renee and the transformation she goes through in the novel are a source of hope that mankind will not be lost forever in a vortex of insignificant tasks."
WE ART FRIENDS

"It's fiction. But it's believable and it feels like
a glimpse into the future... (Renee's) hopes, dreams and fears were easily identifiable... An epiphany in a book!"
THE AVENGER

"An enjoyable read with a touch of dystopia, some humor, and a very strange romance."
READERS' FAVOURITE

From the Back Cover

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SOCIETY!!!

Beloved friend,

The year is 2084, and that famous Margaret Thatcher quote has become a reality: There really is no such thing as society. No one speaks to anyone else. No one looks at anyone else. People don't collaborate, they only compete.

I hate to admit it, but this has had tragic consequences. Unable to satisfy their social urges, the population has fallen into a pit of depression and anxiety. Suicide has become the norm.

It all sounds rather morbid, does it not? But please don't despair, there is hope, and it comes in the form of our hero: Renee Ann Blanca. Wishing to fill the society-shaped hole in her life, our Renee does the unthinkable: She goes in search of human company! It's a radical act and an enormous challenge. But that, I suppose, is why her tale's worth recounting. It's as gripping as it is touching, and I think you're going to love it...

Your trusty narrator,

PP            
Always the perfect gift

Joss Sheldon is a scruffy nomad, unchained free-thinker, and post-modernist radical. Born in 1982, he was brought up in one of the anonymous suburbs which wrap themselves around London's beating heart. Then he escaped!

With a degree from the London School of Economics to his name, Sheldon had spells selling falafel at music festivals, being a ski-bum, and failing to turn the English Midlands into a haven of rugby league.

Then, in 2013, he stumbled upon McLeod Ganj; an Indian village which plays home to thousands of angry monkeys, hundreds of Tibetan refugees, and the Dalai Lama himself. It was there that Sheldon wrote his debut novel, 'Involution & Evolution'.

With several positive reviews to his name, Sheldon had caught the writing bug. He visited Palestine and Kurdistan, to research his second novel, 'Occupied'; a masterpiece unlike anything you've ever read.

But it was with his third novel, 'The Little Voice', that Sheldon really hit the big time; topping the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, and gaining widespread critical acclaim.

In 2017, he wrote 'Money Power Love'; a love story that charts the rise of the British Empire, and the way in which bankers, with the power to create money out of nothing, were able to shape the world we live in today.

A year later, he released what is arguably his greatest story to date, 'INDIVIDUTOPIA: A novel set in a neoliberal dystopia'. Fans of 1984 will love this fast-paced classic, set in a world in which corporations rule supreme.

Now Sheldon has returned with his first work of non-fiction. 'DEMOCRACY: A User's Guide', combines his conversational tone with a series of entertaining anecdotes and thought-provoking ideas; asking what can be done to make our political systems, economies, schools, media, police forces and armies that bit more democratic.
