The Mandibles: A Family, 2029-2047

Collapse. Readers who are frightened about the future should not read Lionel Shriver’s novel titled, The Mandibles: A Family, 2029-2047. She takes a strongly dystopian view of the collapse of society and uses the story of an extended family as the way in which to frighten readers about how the current trajectory of some directions in society could well lead to a collapse in our economy and dramatic transformation of society. The characters are deeply developed, the plot very engaging, and the prose is finely written. So, for those readers who are less than frightened about the future are those most likely to enjoy reading this novel. I enjoyed reading it from beginning to end.
