In Wasteland, society was desecrated as people were ripped from their homes and separated by class.
Some lived in megacities and had everything they needed, but that came with the non-existence of privacy, and free speech is a thing of the past. The government is up in everyone’s business.
Others were sent to Hope Villages, which are really homeless shelters. These people scrape by.
The wastelands are the areas that are left behind. Some of those that escaped the above places live here. They survive on little to nothing.
Rae was left behind by her fleeing family when she was a baby. She lives in the megacity but has a deep-seated need to find her family. That need takes her to the wastelands, where she is in for more than she bargained for.
I enjoy reading dystopian stories. They are scary but always suck me in.
Wastelands is the second book in the Operation Galton series. I didn’t read the first one and still followed the story easily. The segregation and power of the upper class reminded me of Hitler, especially toward the end of the story.
Wastelands takes place in the future, and seeing that horror being repeated freaked me out.
There are a variety of characters to love and hate. Dystopian books are good for that, as many people look out for themselves at all costs. The intensity of some of the situations has me biting my nails.
As Rae veers away from her “privileged” life in the megacity, she learns about the atrocities in which the rest of society lives. We see through her eyes as she travels and learns.
Wasteland is a look at a world I hope to never see in real life!
