Ten Thousand Lines

Ten Thousand Lines

Are YOU Awake?

Set in the harsh backdrop of a dystopian future, an unlikely friendship flowers among the weeds of oppression. Ten Thousand Lines takes place during a time when human beings are sharply divided by class and discontentment brews under the placid surface of the city called Superbia. When a Hive 14 Worker snaps out of his drug-induced haze, the brew becomes a boil and a series of events sets into motion a witch hunt, a forbidden romance, and a revolution. But the Hive 14 Worker doesn't care about politics and social justice. He only wants to sit quietly and watch the dusty sunset.

About the Book

“To call this a dystopian novel is accurate but insufficient.

It is dystopian … think Fahrenheit 451 … but seasoned with Piers the Plowman allegory and a pinch of Karl Marx. In this place of gene-manipulated placidity, we discover an angel of death worthy of Josef Mengele and watch the rebirth of a ‘worker’ trained and manipulated to have no feelings. The characters are intriguing and the story moves along through many twists and turns.” -Author John Rogers

“Easily my favorite book that I’ve read in awhile.” -Amazon Review

“As I read Ten Thousand Lines, I was repeatedly reminded of This Perfect Day by Ira Levin, another of my favorite books, and a similar dystopian theme. In both books, the stable, drugged society is threatened when one of the workers misses his dose and becomes fully aware.” -Author Karl Jorgenson

Read about the inspiration for Ten Thousand Lines on The Bitter Blog.

“Ten Thousand Lines is written with a beautiful and intense style, shifting between first and third person for specific characters; and just like the lines of the book’s title, the characters and their unique point of views cross and come together around the mid-point of this fascinating story. This is not just another dystopian novel; this is the real deal. Plus, if you live in suburbia or have a repetitive, mind numbing job of any sort, then you’ll identify with Ten Thousand Lines.” -Amazon Review
