Book Review – Quota by Jack Bold

A frightening account of what could happen in a future society.

Jack Bold is the penname for the writing partnership of Brian Bold and Jackie Green.  The authors have put together an excellently crafted novel.  The characters are believable and, as in the case of all good narratives, drive the plot.  The story centres on the activities of one family living in an all too credible dystopian world where people have the length of their lifespan determined by the government.

The scientific basis for the increase in dementia as being due to consuming meat from cloned GM cattle was sketchy as was the case of these animals having a mild case of mad cow disease.  Dementia is a health problem in the developed world and it might have been better that the authors left it as that and not speculated on its cause.

Despite this minor point, I found the tale completely absorbing and my desire to discover how the central characters would fare kept me reading right to the end.
