Short Synopsis
An elegiac dystopia of mankind coming to terms with its own imminent extinction, Mockingbird was nominated for a Nebula Award for Best Novel.

Full Synopsis
In a world where the human population has suffered devastating losses, a handful of survivors cling to what passes for life in a post-apocalyptic, dying landscape. A world where humans wander, drugged and lulled by electronic bliss. A dying world of no children and no art, where reading is forbidden. And a strange love triangle: Spofforth, who runs the world, the most perfect machine ever created, whose only wish is to die; and Paul and Mary Lou, a man and a woman whose passion for each other is the only hope for the future of human beings on earth.

An elegiac dystopia of mankind coming to terms with its own imminent extinction, Mockingbird was nominated for a Nebula Award for Best Novel.

"Mockingbird will become one of those books that coming generations will periodically rediscover with wonder and delight." ---The Washington Post

"[T]his novel could be considered an unofficial sequel to Fahrenheit 451, for its central event and symbol is the rediscovery of reading." ---San Francisco Chronicle

"A moral tale that has elements of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, Superman, and Star Wars." ---Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Narrators Robert Fass and Nicole Poole portray the last viable humans on an Earth overcome by well-meaning robots. . . . This audiobook, a stunning example of science fiction, is perfectly performed." ---AudioFile
