Iteration by Liz Monument
Behind the perpetual cornfields and fast-maturing livestock of the world’s most effective genetic engineering project, computerised efficiency has outstripped even the smartest human mind.
Famine, warfare, and the effects of natural disaster will soon be neutralised forever.
But when unexpected events suggest that the supercomputer in charge is conducting its own secret experiments, only one person guesses exactly where this could lead. And it’s down to Dr Jennifer Munroe to convince her increasingly careless colleagues to listen to her fears.
Spanning two thousand years and told by three narrators, Iteration follows the consequences of computation on the world around us…
…and on the future of the human race.
“Liz Monument is such an atmospherically accomplished writer. This is writing of a different class…”
“I was so gripped and I couldn't wait to read the next chapter. I haven't been so excited about a book for a long time…”
“A thriller with a difference. Kept me gripped. Recommended…”
“So addictive! Its brilliant. This book should be a film.”
