The 2084 Trilogy
BOOK ONE: 2069
2084 is a sci-fi trilogy (this being Book One) heavily influenced by 1984 by George Orwell and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. However, it doesn’t rehash the same philosophical questions and definitely doesn’t have the same setting or atmosphere. I wouldn’t even call it a dystopian novel but rather an anti-utopian one. The future world described is arguably ideal from the perspective of global progress, although, like everything else, it has its cost. The main character, Dune Burnswick, is by any metric insane and resembles an antagonist more than a protagonist. Nonetheless, you will read from his first person perspective and have his thoughts injected into your brain as he throws you into moral quandaries no ideological framework you possess will be able to resolve.
Admittedly, 2084 aspires to afflict the reader with an incurable existential crisis, but you have nothing to worry about, because Dune will always be there whispering his absolutism into your ear, promising it will all be okay if you only trust him. Now, despite the devil I am portraying him to be, I wouldn’t be too quick to claim everything he says is a lie, as I have done my due diligence with my research. Not saying I necessarily agree, but I didn’t write Dune’s arguments and rationale with the intention they could be refuted by a simple Google search.
With that in mind, I welcome you to an original and thought-provoking tale set in the utopian world of 2084, and hope you enjoy following the grand adventures of a deranged villain and his foxy accomplice (literally).
