Sleepwalking is a clever

sci-fi novel set in a future where the State controls its citizens and where the power of language and ideas is no longer necessary.

But a small group of humans has escaped state programming, and they are developing a secret weapon to overthrow the brave new world where humans are nothing more than machines.

The Outsiders have been training a special group of children whose mission will be the destruction of the State.

That time has now come and four teenagers are selected to infiltrate the headquarters of the Government.

But the plan they have been trained to follow carries enormous risks.

Sleepwalking is a thrilling and intelligently written vision of the future that works on many levels. It throws up questions we should all be thinking about but never loses its plot at the expense of ideas. A chilling read.
