The Mandibles: A Family, 2029-2047

By Lionel Shriver - Rating: 8/10

Apocalyptic dystopia from a libertarian perspective. Biases confirmed! In this story it’s not war, plague or environmental catastrophe that brings the end times, it’s the devaluation of the U.S. dollar. This is a far more likely scenario than we’d like to think and the author does a great job in showing how it would gradually affect a regular family. In the early parts it feels like a tale of what happens to all the normal people in the world of Atlas Shrugged.
