Publisher's Summary

As Trafford Sewell struggles to work through the usual crowds of commuters, he is confronted by the intimidating figure of his Parish Confessor. Why has Trafford not been streaming his every moment of sexual intimacy onto the community website like everybody else? Does he think he's different or special in some way? Better than his fellow man and woman? Does he have something to hide?

Imagine a world where everyone knows everything about everybody. Where what a person 'feels' and 'truly believes' is protected under the law, while what is rational, even provable is condemned as heresy. A world where to question ignorance and intolerance is to commit a Crime against Faith.

Ben Elton's dark, savagely comic novel imagines a post-apocalyptic society where religious intolerance combines with a confessional sex obsessed, self-centric culture to create a world where nakedness is modesty, ignorance is wisdom and privacy is a dangerous perversion. A chilling vision of what's to come? Or something rather closer to what we call reality?

    "Slightly grumpy but entertaining"
    Where does Blind Faith rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A diverting enough book


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    A humorous dystopian fable. An odd mix. Part 1984, which was clunkingly refererenced meets Hello magazine.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Could do. Elton is a pacey writer


    Any additional comments?

    I like Ben Elton's writing. This is not his best work but it is his usual style.of humorous and observational with some grotesque thrown in. The story has a few nice plot twists and some.of the characterisation is.strong but overall most of.the.antagonists are.one.dimensional. Had a bit of a.screen play feel to it. Overall a good listen but not Elton's best but still good. Very well paced. Thank Samsung for the weird punctuation of this review!

    Story
    "One of his worst"

    Not really futuristic and not much happens in the book. It feels as though BE came up with couple lines and then had to drag them out to make a book. Having said that it still keeps you listening.
