Millennium People

Millennium People tells the story of David Markham, a psychologist who is searching for the truth behind a bomb that exploded on a Heathrow baggage carousel, killing his ex-wife.

Publisher's Summary

The explosive J. G. Ballard renaissance, which began with the 2009 publication of The Complete Stories of J. G. Ballard, now continues with his first novel to be published in America in a full decade. "Wonderfully warped, darkly comic" (The Economist), Millennium People tells the story of David Markham, a psychologist who is searching for the truth behind a bomb that exploded on a Heathrow baggage carousel, killing his ex-wife. Infiltrating a shadowy protest group responsible for her death, David finds himself succumbing to the charismatic charms of the group's leader, who hopes to incite a violent rebellion against the government by his fanatical adherents, the spiritually and financially impoverished members of Britain's white middle class. A shockingly plausible and extremely unsettling vision of society in collapse, Millennium People "dissects the perverse psychology that links terrorists with their innocent victims" (New Statesman).

    "Never got good."

    I kept waiting for the story line to get interesting, but it never happened. The monotone, unimaginative narration didn't help.

    I've enjoyed reading some of Ballard's other stories, but not this one. I would try some of his other books, but not with this narrator.
