‘A spectacular exploration of the power of technology…science fiction at its best’ Saara El-Arifi, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Final Strife

“What does it feel like to wake up in the Panopticon? It’s like waking up for the first time ever. It’s like waking up with a third eye.”

When Moremi connects her brain to the Panopticon, a network which allows you to see inside the minds and dreams of others, she believes that it will save her from depression, loneliness and, eventually, death. That is until she meets Orpheus. 

Orpheus was brought up in isolation by a Neo-luddite father. He was raised to question everything, including the government who plan to make the connection procedure compulsory. 

They promise that connecting everyone to the Panopticon will end human suffering and usher in a more perfect world. But when Orpheus and Moremi uncover the dark side of the technology, they find themselves on opposite sides of a radical divide, between those who believe that the Panopticon will save humanity, and those who will stop at nothing to destroy it.

More Perfect is The Circle meets Inception in an immersive and futuristic story that explores love, loneliness and the limits of technology’s ability to save a humanity who might not want to be saved. 

Praise for More Perfect

A fascinating story that never shies away from the contradictions in human nature’ Guardian

‘An unnervingly believable struggle for the future. The story of Moremi and Orpheus has classical antecedents but with a satisfying eye for the future’ Booklist

‘Tightly crafted, weaving science fiction, mythology, and more to tell a tale that feels pertinent right now’ Kirkus Reviews

‘More Perfect is a deeply character-driven dystopia that explores memory, connection, and controlling the narrative, with vibes sort of like V for Vendetta mixed with Inception’ Tor.com
