There is only one country left in the world, Unitia, and a global network called P-Net. The main character in Us, Martin Blank, lives within a system of total surveillance and control. The individual person has no meaning anymore. He or she serves the community as a tool and is kept strict tabs on by Unitia. Martin is plagued by doubts. He has a distinctive sense of individualism and reflects on what his life means in this society. He is in fact a rebel who doesn’t know yet how he should live out or see through his rebellion.
18-year-old author Robin Schenkel has created in Us an astonishing first work which stands in the tradition of great socially critical dystopian novels.
