Tomorrow's Children

By Daniel Polansky
Tomorrow's Children by Daniel Polansky digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

From Hugo Award nominated author comes a high-octane post-apocalyptic romp set in the ruins of Manhattan.

Years ago, Tomorrow - a noxious cloud of funky gas - descended on Manhattan, cutting the island off from the rest of the world and mutating the remaining population.

Now, survivors exist amid the rubble of modernity, wearing cast-off clothing from generations past, worshipping celebrities from the past as ambivalent gods and communicating through roughly drawn emojis. Manhattan exists in a state of delicate balance between neighbourhoods, with each group protecting themselves with Molotov cocktails and scrap metal spears.

But when the first tourist in centuries arrives on the island under mysterious circumstances, the uneasy web tangled between factions is about to unravel…

Frantic and full of anarchy, Tomorrow's Children is a high-octane dystopian tale from Hugo Award nominated author Daniel Polansky.

“I so wanted to love this book, everything about the premise spoke to me but I just could not get into the story, develop a bond with the characters or understand the dialect. Now either I was just not bright enough to truly keep up or this was too large an attempt to be smart that didn’t translate. We’re introduced to many new characters in each chapters all of whom speak in a new dialect but there’s no ability to understand what they are discussing. The use of emojis as their way of writing sounded so promising but in reality I had absolutely no idea what they were meant to tell me and I trudged and waded through chapters of this book completely confused and unmotivated. Spoiler alert * Within just a few sentences of the book we’re subject to something that personally I could have done with a trigger warning for..I’m all for artistic license but I struggled with the graphic description of animal abuse. I can completely appreciate why it was there, they world it’s painting but it was too much for me personally and left ne dreading that another scene like that would be written. Ultimately I ended up DNF’ing this book. I still believe the premise and idea for this book sounds fantastic and enjoyable. Perhaps the published version will contain a dictionary for the slang, a description of what the emojis mean and a map to help immerse the reader but without it I couldn’t continue.”
