Dominic Green Û Smallworld Ebook

Lony the Made manufactured humans being hunted by the State and the super rich clients of a gravitational health spa established at Mount Ararat's South Po It took a little bit to get into with a lot of sci fi made up jargon Once I was invested in the story I couldn't put it down The Reborn unto Jesus family is captivating with their ever changing life on the smallworld and the hermit that guards them There are a couple laugh out loud moments a lot of action and a lot of bible jokes Good satire while still being good sci fi
