Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | Back from the future

Diane Samuels reviews Useful Idiots by Jan Mark:

Useful Idiots is brimming with ideas. The vision of the future is neither dystopian nor utopian. It is engagingly realistic. Some things have improved. Others have not. People still have a quest for knowledge, are greedy, fearful, indulge in political intrigue and get on with their lives as best they can. It is written with a sharp eye to the present as the world of the reader is regarded through the telescope from centuries ahead.

This certainly looks an interesting book - and the reviewer highlights the difficulty when inventing a new (in this case future) world: balancing the desire to show how that world is and telling a good story.
