Dream of the Navigator (Faraway Saga #1) by Stephen Zimmer BLOG TOUR

Cities have been replaced by technates. It is a world of soaring apartments, hundreds of stories high, where technology measures, monitors and rations to meet the needs of the greater populace. It is a world of drones, in the air and on the ground, and advanced robotic beings who carry out much of the harder labor, security, and even pleasure assignments.

Those discontent, or who resist, are taken to Rehabilitation Centres, established after the embrace of the Greater Good Doctrine.

For most, virtual realms, substances, and entertainment provide escapes, but for Haven, Cayden, Jaelynn, and Salvador, growing up in Technate 6 is a restless existence.

A hunger for something more gnaws inside each of them. Discoveries await that open the gates to transcend time and space, and even new planes of existence. Nothing in their universe, or others, is impossible to explore.

What was once reality now seems like an illusion in a deepening experience.

I thought Dream of the Navigator was a cracking read. The description from the blog tour banner '1984 and Brave New World meet Narnia is very accurate. First off, I love the cover. I like the dark and light mirror reflection. Very eye-catching. I found the book very gripping. The world inhabited by the characters in the book is my idea of hell. I find myself unsettled by the development of technology. Dream of the Navigator is chilling because I find it very plausible. The world building is great. I felt like I really knew Technate and the people who lived there. I really enjoyed the fact that the chapters alternate between the viewpoints of different characters. This non-linear structure works really well. I enjoyed the way the world, the characters and possibilities developed and would recommend this book. I look forward to see where the story goes next.
