Award-winning author Sylvain Neuvel explores an immigration dystopia in The Test * * * Britain, the not-too-distant future. Idir is sitting the British Citizenship Test. He wants his family to belong. Twenty-five questions to determine their fate. Twenty-five chances to impress. When the test takes an unexpected and tragic turn, Idir is handed the power of life and death. How do you value a life when all you have is multiple choice? At the Publisher’s request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied. Praise for The Test: “Thought-provoking and disturbing. A cautionary tale illuminated with dark enlightenment.” ?Kirkus reviews, starred review. Praise for the Themis Files “As high-concept as it is, Sleeping Giants is a thriller through and through…. Not only is Sleeping Giants one of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory, it’s a smart demonstration of how science fiction can honor its traditions and reverse-engineer them at the same time.” ?NPR “But the most surprising thing about the book may just be how compelling the central characters are in the midst of these larger-than-life concepts…. I can’t stop thinking about it.” ?The Chicago Review of Books “Reminiscent of The Martian and World War Z, Sleeping Giants is a luminous conspiracy yarn that shoots for (and lands among) the stars.” ?Pierce Brown About the Author Sylvain Neuvel has taught linguistics in India, and worked as a software engineer in Montreal. He is also a certified translator, though he wishes he were an astronaut. His girlfriend would have him believe that he has too many toys, so he writes about aliens and giant robots as a blatant excuse to build action figures (for his son, of course). His debut, Sleeping Giants, was described by NPR as “one of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory.” [Contains a table.]
