When the book opens, we learn that a cure for cancer exists, suggesting one of our collective great hopes; we quickly learn it’s only available to the wealthy, nodding to the ever-present debate about income inequality in a country where unemployment remains frustratingly high and even our fix for a costly healthcare system is broken.
In the middle of it all is Miles, a 21-year-old technophile whose mother is dying from the now-curable “big C”. Because Miles and his parents are roughly middle class they’re unable to afford the cure, leaving the increasingly cynical Miles with a choice: Should he use an expensive and powerful gift from his cousin (and best friend) to try and save his Mom, and by extension his broken family? Can he bend the technology — and the people and organizations that control it — to his simple goal — through pure determination?
These are heavy themes, though to its credit, pre://do.mai.n doesn’t make the answers easy or quick, and nobody’s a convenient “roll your eyes” hero in the process. That said, it’s also a fun ride, with shots of black and crude humor throughout. There’s even true love and friendship, in a surprising amount of forms — between fathers and sons, cousins; even cyborgs and things beyond human are human enough to feel.
Love story - sci-fi romp - empowering tale of rebellion against the continual separation of the rich and poor. This book has all of these elements and because of them, or maybe in spite of them, you have an entertaining story that will keep you up into the wee hours and leave you wanting more. Good thing there are more chapters to come…
