Life in 2050
The youth of the world have finally taken over in the futuristic SciFi serial novel, LIFE IN 2050, by Jim Musgrave. Marijuana hookahs in stores, sex in the streets, and no more war profits for the elderly elite of the Military Industrial Complex. However, one worker at the Ministry of Mindfulness, William Drury, the black son of an English Professor, is turning 40 in three days. He knows what will happen to him and he wants to escape Big Bro's socialistic libertarian paradise. In Big Bro's dystopian world, where citizens over 40 are given surgeries that make them see in black and white to prepare them for the induced dementia to come, William must save his parents and family, who have been separated. This is a world, he discovers, where getting social security has become a reality show fight to the death, and prostitutes are "safe sex" androids. Who's behind Big Bro, and what will become of people of color and William's family?

Darren's Review

I got this as a e-book forwarded to me from a good reads friend. She got it directly from the author. I wasn't disappointed in reading it. It was so good that I read it in two reading sessions. I found the author had quite an imagination. I hope to read more books by this author.

Thomas Petri's Review

Received through goodreads give away. I had a tough time following the twists and turns of this story line. Sort of a rerun of "Logan's Run", after a certain age (40 in this case) you are with drawn from society. In "Logan's Run" the out come was death, in 2050 the outcome is a drug induced with-drawl from society. But the protagonist, William, fore-sees a sinister outcome and struggles to change the rules of society. Any more you will find out after reading the book.
