Fourteen-year-old Anax thinks she knows her history. She'd better. She's sat facing three Examiners and her grueling five-hour examination on the 2077 Great War has just begun. If she passes, she'll be admitted into The Academy - the elite institution that runs her utopian society.

But Anax is about to discover that for all her learning, the history she's been taught isn't the whole story. And that The Academy isn't what she believes it to be.

Anax's examination leads us into a future where ancient - eternal - philosophical questions have dramatically collided with the march of technology, where just what it means to be human is up for debate, and where the concealed stain of an 'original sin' threatens the very existence of her brave new world.

    " Genesis really was a page turner. It is short (150ish pages) and I really enjoyed reading it. Genesis tells the story of Anix (sp?) as she undergoes THE EXAMINATION in order to get into THE ACADEMY. Anix is interested in Adam's history, the man who rescued a girl during the time of the plague. They lived on an island that is surronded by a giant gate, armed soldiers, and in fear of the north wind bringing with it the plague. For 20 years, any one found OUTSIDE the island was eliminated until Adam. But Adam is history and the Examination is now. In sci-fi fashion, Bernard Beckett looks at what is human? consciousness? An excellent book. I couldn't predict the end. "
