Halloween Bingo 2018 - New Release

Early Riser - Jasper Fforde

Imagine a world where all humans must hibernate through a brutally cold winter, their bodies dangerously close to death as they enter an ultra-low metabolic state of utterly dreamless sleep. All humans, that is, apart from the Sleep Marshalls, a group of officers who diligently watch over the vulnerable sleeping citizens.

 

Charlie Worthing is a junior Sleep Marshall who hears of a conspiracy - a viral dream is somehow spreading amongst those in the hibernational state, causing paranoia, hallucination and a psychotic episode that can end in murder. When Charlie enters the sleepstate himself and wakes two months later, all those who knew about the dream have disappeared...

 

It's not Thursday Next, but a new Jasper Fforde book is always welcome.
