In much the same vein as Farenheit 451, A Brave New World, and 1984, Elton takes the theme of total government control through current technology with well-developed characters and spins a masterful, if not terrifying tale. After a cataclysmic flood caused by Global Warming occurs, society is run by a government with The Temple at its head. The Temple seems to be an ammalgamation of various belief from Christianity to Green Mythology, with the exclusion of Islam. Science is Evil. Everlasting love through The Temple is sacred. Privacy is illegal. Complete openeness into each others lives is demanded through mandatory posts on social media websites, mandated streams of specific events, limited clothing encouraged, and multiple sexual partners/marriages are encouraged. It is socially unacceptable to ostracize. Eddification is demanded. Reason is the ultimate evil. Trafford attempts to fly below the radar screen. Calling attention to oneself is dangerous for anyone, but particularly dangerous for one with doubts. He follows the law as evidenced by his second marriage, participation in Confession, minimum expected daily posts, and appearances at at least some of the office Group Hug sessions. He even emoted when he and his first wife lost their child like the parents of all the other dead children. When he and his second wife have a baby girl. Trafford is unwilling to stand by send his baby to the arms of Jesus, Diana, and Elvis. He has her vaccinated. The worst of all black arts. What follows is Trafford's journey to reclaim reason, and his belief that humanity is worth saving.
