Jason Taverner - world-famous talk show host and man-about-town - wakes up one day to find that no one knows who he is - including the vast databases of the totalitarian government. And in a society where lack of identification is a crime, Taverner has no choice but to go on the run with a host of shady characters, including crooked cops and dealers of alien drugs. But do they know more than they are letting on? And just how can a person's identity be erased overnight?

Truly is a sad day to read this book and see how ever closer of a reality ours has become compared to Huxley's fictional book. As Orwells 1984 and animal farm, this is just another great classic.
And a truly heart breaking ending. Brilliantly written, expertly narrated by none other than basil expedition, and enthralling from the moment I started.

If there are three books that should be returned to school curriculum, It would have to be the this book and the two Orwell books, society today is eerily just like this. And so much can be learnt from these beautiful short stories from such brilliant minds of the past.

From the Audie-nominated narrator of The Martian. In eleven years' time, a million members of an alien race will arrive at Earth. Years before they enter orbit, their approach will be announced by the flare of a thousand flames in the sky, their ships' huge engines burning hard to slow them from the vast speeds needed to cross interstellar space. These foreboding lights will shine in our night sky like new stars, getting ever brighter until they outshine even the sun, casting ominous shadows and banishing the night until they suddenly blink out.

Absolutely fantastic. Stephen is one of the most articulate modern writers, such scientifically accurate details and a thrilling experience to take in. R.C. Bray is highly enjoyable to listen to as well. When he puts on a females voice I cannot help but smile! Cannot wait to listen to the next two instalments! Better investment of time than George R.R. Martin!! Not only will the story end I don't have to wait!!!!
