Our next book is... The Machine by James Smythe
The Machine by James Smythe
Meeting: Monday 10th February 2014, 19:30 - The Norfolk Royale Hotel, Richmond Hill, BH2 6EN (please ask at reception for our exact meeting location).
Beth lives alone on a desolate housing estate near the sea. She came here to rebuild her life following her husband’s return from the war. His memories haunted him but a machine promised salvation. It could record memories, preserving a life that existed before the nightmares.
Now the machines are gone. The government declared them too controversial, the side-effects too harmful. But within Beth’s flat is an ever-whirring black box. She knows that memories can be put back, that she can rebuild her husband piece by piece.
A Frankenstein tale for the 21st century, The Machine is a story of the indelibility of memory, the human cost of science and the horrors of love.
