Overview

Within the Walls by Stephanie Bennett is Book 1 of the trilogy by the same name. It's a fast-paced novel with a look into the increasingly digital existence of humanity. As media outlets, corporations, and advertisers seek to mesh simulated life with tangible life, the eventual collision of these two worlds is far from the minds of many who cut their teeth on mommy�s IPod and have never known a time when media wasn�t a dominant presence or the driving force in day-to-day existence.

Within the Walls brings us to the busy world of the character, Emilya, a creator of virtual vacations in the year 2071. What with micro-sleeping, sixteen hour workdays, and her total immersion in virtual relationships (both at work and in her flat), at 29, she hasn�t seen much of a need to think about for anything beyond the walls of her fast-paced, highly productive life. But the discovery of a mysterious letter sends her world spinning. Enter the inner chambers of Emilya�s search for meaning. Take a careful look within the walls; her story may be closer than you think.

You will not put this story down! Outstanding and incredibly thought provoking! The author, Dr. Stephanie Bennett, has an enormous amount of creativity, writing skill and intelligence that makes it nearly impossible for the reader to put this book down. I love it and I know many others do as well. I highly recommended it and cant wait for the next one to come out!
