The Button Chronicles by Juniko Moody

Button ChroniclesThe Button Chronicles by Juniko Moody is the highly inventive dystopian novel about the very nature of human evolution. Replete with its own inventive language, The Button Chronicles is about a dark 22nd century where mysterious buttons appear from out of nowhere. When pressed, a person disappears, and soon there are buttons for every person on earth, with millions of people disappearing. No one knows where they came from or how the devices work. A suspenseful and thought-provoking read, The Button Chronicles asks serious questions about the nature of reality and how mankind can survive on its current dystopian path.

Echoing Alice in Wonderland, the novel follows a reporter named Alice who goes down a different sort of a rabbit hole, a wormhole, to discover the origin of the buttons. Along the way, she discovers mankind’s destiny. There are similarities to Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar,” as Alice travels deeper into the void, unveiling a future that is at once paranormal and scientific. It’s a truly mind-opening novel that is startlingly inventive, as well as startlingly plausible, even with its far-out scenario. The first in a series, The Button Chronicles is a mind-bending sci-fi tale that will open your eyes about human possibility.
