    One thought on “Golden State

    1. Paromjit on said:

      Ben H Winters writes a thrilling dystopian novel with a central mystery that puts the protagonist on a challenging road that questions everything he has ever believed in Golden State is a future version of California, a state where truth and objectivity is everything and to veer from this central tenet risks jail and exile There is no past, no history, no documents, only what is The concept of fiction no longer exists, and a novel is now understood to be a true history or truth, an interesti Ben [...]

      The BOTM picks are up This is not a drill.They are up and I chose this one This speculative fiction definitely sounds up my alley I have been craving stories like this lately.

      This was really good I d never heard of this author before but was granted an ARC of this book from Netgalley It is a commentary on truth is there such a thing as absolute truth Can it be determined through a society where everything is documented and recorded Does everyone live by the same rules or are some exempt How fear of the unknown can imprison us Excellent read

    4. Andrew Smith on said:

      It s not clear when it happened or what happened, but it was BIG Now nobody talks about it, in fact everything before has been erased there are no documents, there is no known history This new world, in the same place as the old world, has rules that preclude lots of things and knowledge of the past is one of them But the biggest sin is to lie, to lie about anything To disobey this edict can result in serious jail time The place is called the Golden State and it s what used to be Californ [...]

      I m the BIGGEST fan of The Last Policeman trilogy so to say I was excited to read Golden State would be a serious understatement.It didn t disappoint this is a hugely relevant speculative tale, but also a massively entertaining piece of fiction that had me banging through it in record time Laz is brilliant, so engaging, living in the shadow of his legendary brother, one of the few people tasked with keeping the record quite literally straight as he senses lies in the air around him.The world I m [...]

    6. Blake Crouch on said:

      Golden State is a prescient, devastating commentary on humanity s disintegrating attachment to reality and truth, expertly told through the prism of a police procedural, dystopian nightmare Winters has written a 1984 for the 21st century Not just a thrilling book, but an important one.

    7. Gabby on said:

      This was a strange book that progressively got strange as I got closer to the end This is a dystopian novel about a futuristic California where there are police who detect lies, and lying causes you to go to prison or even worse, face execution I m not a huge fan of dystopians but this one sounded interesting, and it is very similar to Fahrenheit 451 as the description claims I was really invested in the beginning of this story, it s very thought provoking and it has a lot to say about This was [...]
