Kingdom Come

Here’s a new book from JG Ballard. I’ve just started, so bear with me, I’m also reading some Linguistics stuff and History of the 20th C by Gilbert, oh, what it is to be cultured darling.
Anyway, the Ballard book, it has an interesting premise, a man’s father dies in the modern equivalent of a house of worship, the shopping centre but there is something sinister about the centre and the way that it draws people in…..
Yet another dystopia, I do have a penchant for them, but only well written ones. So far so good in this case. Ballard has already got me interested even though I don’t particularly like the protagonist. He’s a former adman who is looking, not too hard mind you, for his father after his death. In his journey to find out who this man was he becomes fascinated by the world around Metroland. More on the J G website .

Stay tuned weaders.
