The year is 2059 and Great Britain is dead.
Now, you will live and die for Brito.
How dark will this dystopia be?
It's a reform like no other. You're in Britain, but it's different. All borders are blocked, society has shrunk and the people are driven by a public purpose. A purpose, that is, programmed by the regime.
BRITO has enslaved the population by destroying individuality and replacing it with a devout dedication to the nation. Class, race and difference have disappeared and all that remains are those that work and those that do not.
By any means necessary, a corrupt chain of command manipulate the 'Operatives' to function efficiently, while their sole enemies are the unemployed - and acceptably expendable - 'InOps'.
When Operative Everley bonds with a non-worker, his feelings wriggle free from the clutch of the commanding hand that controls his mind. His changes in behaviour are quickly spotted by the immoral eyes of his aged superior, Raines, whose wistful yearning for Great Britain causes him to bring an impatient violence to his management style. All the while, a member of an underground organisation is watching and wanting to free Everley before he is banished, brainwashed or ordered to death.
Near-future dystopian fiction that is more relevant now than ever as it looks towards a new type of patriot in a post-Brexit (and post-Coronavirus) Britain.
For Brito! is a story about the endurance of the human spirit and the development of character despite a regime of manipulation, supervision and control.
If you love 1984, Brave New World, The Handmaid's Tale, The Children of Men and A Clockwork Orange, and a fan of George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Margaret Atwood, P.D. James, Anthony Burgess, then this one is definitely for you!
