Publisher's Summary

Save the People have created the perfect egalitarian society from the ruins of global warming, where youth and health are celebrated in Britain’s constant sunshine. 

And to ensure that no individual takes more than another from the world’s remaining resources each citizen gets 100 points to spend on education, housing, and health; just be careful when they’re gone. Anyone who reaches the age of 60 retires to glorious Scotland 'where dreams come too' and gets what they well and truly deserve. 

But when a shipwreck of drowned old-timers washes up on his beach the village policeman becomes more than a little interested in his own parents' retirement, and begins an investigation with unforeseen consequences.

Brilliant dystopian book

Th is is a brilliant book set in the future where everyone starts life with 100 points and loses some of they break the law until they either end up on the chain gang or retire to Scotland at age 60 if they have enough points still. The book follows two men as they work for the government as futuristic police but when told to stop investigating a suicide they carry on digging and get into trouble. Even though the book is set in the future some of the laws are quite apt for now, for example hand shaking has been banned and now everyone bows to each other. It is similar to 1984 but takes the journey on a different direction.

I was sure I knew how the story would end but a number of things shocked me and made me realise how wrong I was.

Frighteningly believable

Having already listened to A Reader's Companion to 100 Points and political manifesto of Save the People, I was aware of the policies of the Save the People party. The story line would be unbelievable if it weren't for the current political cesspit we're experiencing. Brilliantly narrated by Graig Bowles, the book conjures up a life that no one wants but I can imagine something as dreadful actually happening. 100 POINTS is definitely worth listening to as a warning of the shape of things to come. Highly recommended.
