I totally recommend this book. It’s futuristic and dramatic, but the futuristic parts of the book are worthy of your time. There’s an underground train that gets you to Paris within three hours!
The dimensions of this building on the front cover looks like a regular skyscraper in New York now-a-days, but from reading, it’s actually huge. That confuses me because it doesn’t look big on the cover. There’s a forest, a school, restaurants, tennis courts, and a lot of shopping malls in the building.
My favorite POV would be from Watt. He’s a genius. Reading about his invention, Claudia, delights me. How he makes money is scandalous.
