Society

What is your biggest fear? Public speaking? The dark? Intimacy? Failure? Rejection?

Mine? Death. The unknown. It's very simple to say: No matter what you believe- Heaven, Hell, Reincarnation, Limbo- we have no idea. My second fear is that I could die at any point in time. Another simplicity: Humans are fragile. We bleed, we break, we die. Very easy concept. But why live in fear?

The Society came up with a way to not life in fear of death. They created a mathematical equation to determine a person's death date. The Society then required every citizen to wear a silver watch. It wasn't an ordinary watch. It didn't display the time. It displayed a date. Your date. The day you die.

It all sounds very morbid. Surely the citizens wouldn't accept such a thing. Well, actually, they embraced it. For centuries, this is the way The Society reigned. All was well. Until... a young girl by the age of sixteen and the name of Kaydence Myers, died. This probably doesn't interest you. She just died, right? Her watch ran out. No. You would be wrong. Kaydence had the longest life expectancy at Brooks High. She has the longest life expectancy in years. She died of a disease. Pneumonia was it's name. Citizen's Square, the largest square on Earth, was in pandemonium. Citizens were distraught. Pneumonia died out when The Society took the throne over Earth. Extremely rare. The Society promised it was expected. Nothing ever works out 100%, right? This consoled the citizens. But not me.

WMMW: Dont even have words. LOVED IT

B.Noble: Awesome concept and commentary on modern commercialism and it’s dark side, really well executed. The main character’s dialogue feels a little stilted a times, and his reactions occasionally seem a little melodramatic, but other than that a great read.

Farzana Begum: The story is good .... Although it isn't a thriller it keeps you on toes. Time well spent...happy reading
