As Trafford Sewell struggles to work through the usual crowds of commuters, he is confronted by the intimidating figure of his Parish Confessor. Why has Trafford not been streaming his every moment of sexual intimacy onto the community website like everybody else? Does he think he's different or special in some way? Better than his fellow man and woman? Does he have something to hide?

Imagine a world where everyone knows everything about everybody. Where what a person 'feels' and 'truly believes' is protected under the law, while what is rational, even provable is condemned as heresy. A world where to question ignorance and intolerance is to commit a Crime against Faith.

Ben Elton's dark, savagely comic novel imagines a post-apocalyptic society where religious intolerance combines with a confessional sex obsessed, self-centric culture to create a world where nakedness is modesty, ignorance is wisdom and privacy is a dangerous perversion. A chilling vision of what's to come? Or something rather closer to what we call reality?

    " As others have said, '1984' for Gen Y. I liked it, although it was a bit heavy-handed with the "evol;ution is the only thing worth having faith in" message, and the end was somewhat thrown away. "

    " A bit of a strange book - made me think about our throwaway society and found elements of it quite upsetting. "

    " '1984' for an internet generation. A bit too jaded and cynical for my taste, though Elton is a master world-builder. Not overly fond of being smacked over the head with repeated 'atheism is the only true reasonable way!' message, nor did I think the jab at the One campaign all that witty. Lost pace towards the end. "

    " As a stand up comedian i have never rated Ben Elton so wasnt interested in reading any of his books, this one was recommended to me so i thought i would give it a try and was happily suprised by how funny i found this. This book is the state of things to come when all we want is our 15 minutes of fame and believe everything we see on a TV screen "
