Toys by James Patterson
I wanted something fun and fast paced to listen to and I knew Patterson was a good bet. He was, but it wasn’t at all like anything by him I’ve ever read. This is completely accessible science fiction that even those that hate anything futuristic will enjoy.
It’s the future: not too far, not too close. Humans are no longer in charge. Elites, human and technology hybrids, are the keepers of the planet. Humans are the workers and are shuffled over to the overcrowded city slums. And the time for the human race seems to be about to run out.
Can’t tell you much more without ruining the story, but know that it’s a great ride.
