Dollhouse Syndrome Vol.1
An intriguing and innovative Young Adult novel by Lan Hsu
From the Introduction:
The World. In the not too distant future
“Nowadays, the world is different to how it used to be. We have split the earth into the Seven Rooms, each room never to interfere with the private affairs of another room. Everyone and anyone can travel freely between the Seven Rooms. We have employed the White Uniform to ensure the safety and well-being of our citizens.”
We will never be free. We will always be their little “Dolls.”
“We live in a perfect world, one purely of creativity and love. After the War of Peace, we have rebuilt the world to be perfect. There is now a 98.79% rate of happiness, and the average life expectancy has been raised to over one hundred. The rate of suicide is below 0.0001% of all recent deaths. Crime rates have been demolished. It is next to non-existent. I believe we have indeed built a great empire, one to last millennia.”
This place is fake. We must fix it. They will continue to play with us unless we fix it.
