2074 - Disistance for Some Means Life for Others
  • Daniel, December 2017 - 5 Stars - Fantastic Read. 2074... this book surprised me with an extremely well-written story that captures you from the opening page all the way to the last page. The twisted storyline feels like definite reality for the future which makes it terrifying to consider but at the same time acceptable. This book will make you reflect on questions you’d ask yourself if you were in the character’s shoes.
  • Devereaux, November 2017 - 5 Stars - Great Read. 2074 pulls the reader immediately into the story and doesn't let go until the last page. A fast paced dystopian sy-fy tale that brings to mind a modern Brave New World or 1984. Bruce Gaughran, a master story teller, has woven a tale so plausible that its frightening. Easy to imagine our world moving in this direction by the third quarter of the 21st Century.
  • Lantz, October 2017 - 4 Stars Scary vision of future. This was one of those tales of the future that is written so smooth it pulls you into the future without you even realizing it. There is nothing unusual when you begin, then suddenly you realize something is not quite right. Something is off but what is it? You read more and are pulled in more until suddenly you are half finished and you read faster and cannot figure what's wrong with the author's logic. Suddenly you finished with a whole different viewpoint on what the world is moving into fifty or sixty years from now. I finished the book over a week ago and came to the conclusion I must read it again! I am not going to tell anyone how it ends. It is one of those quick reads that makes one think over and over why what the author reveals cannot be the future any more than 1984 or Brave New World was. 2074 cannot be what the future holds - but I could not find anything that contradicts the theory put forward. A very good book. I would not be surprised that someone doesn't put this on film. The moral questions it asks are huge.
  • Barbara T, October 2017 - 5 Stars - The author and I were co-members of a writing group for several years and I already knew he could spin a great fantasy tale. This book is a foray into science fiction or maybe dystopian futures and from the beginning he grabs the reader and doesn't let go. Not a dull moment in the book.
  • Amazon Customer, October 2017 - 4 Stars - Enjoyed this book. Interesting story line that was easy to read.
  • Barbara P, August 2017 - 5 Stars - This is a must-read for lovers of science fiction. The concept is unique and written to engage the reader from chapter to chapter. 
  • Ron, September 2017 - 5 StarsHighly recommend for those who love a great, fast paced read! 2074 starts out with a bang and captivates the reader from page one! Incredible storyline...eerily plausible. Couldn't put the book down! Would love to see 2074 as a movie!
