Peter Liney is a description genius ... The Detainee is definitely a book that should be read by all
I'm already anxious to read the next book in the series . . .You wouldn't want to be on this island, but you sure will enjoy getting a glimpse from the comfort of your couch
a very slick dystopian story that impressed me in the way Liney describes the world he created . . . I knew The Detainee was going to be a special read but until I read the last page, I had no idea just how good it really was
a heartbreaking dystopian story about survival, cruelty and slowly regaining a little bit of hope
The Detainee had me gripped
Of all the dystopian novels I have read in recent years, Peter Liney's The Detainee is one the best written, most engaging, heart-tugging and cinematic of all
Intense and so beautifully crafted, The Detainee is an unputdownable (now I'm inventing words to describe this transcendental experience!) dystopian thriller that deserves all the praise heaped on it. A scathing social commentary on how we treat our old, on the media and the meltdown of values and morals in today's life. Highly recommended read!
A dramatic extrapolation of current global issues
An edge-of-your-seat dystopian novel for adults. perfect for anyone who loves dystopian fiction and refreshingly realistic characters
Dark brutality but also a beautiful, compelling message about love and courage
