My Review

I received a free ecopy for this book for an honest review.
 x
Dissolution is a science fiction novella. It took me a little bit to get into it because I was a little confused, but once I had it figured out, I couldn’t put the book down.
The main character, Madeleine, has been groomed all of her 18 years for the Auctioning where people are sold to the company that is the highest bidder. She has her heart on on MERCE, where they build and work on technical things and she likes to work with her hands. But the Auction doesn’t work like it’s supposed to and she finds herself on the run.
 x
Dissolution is suspenseful and thought provoking. Is a corporation just a piece of paper or is it a living thing? Can corporations end up becoming evil? When is power too much power? Is the sacrifice of one enough to change the world?
 x
I really liked this story. It left a few things unanswered and it could have easily been a full length novel. I would have liked to have learned more about the different companies and what they did, for example.
