Bricked In (Audiobook)
I did not finish this book, for reasons I’ve laid out below. This is a non-spoiler book review, so if you are interested in checking out the book yourself, you can read my thoughts without worry.
Bricked In is a disgusting glimmer of self-recognition.
For many, happiness is found in freedom. After winning the lottery, a former gypsy becomes the queen of a dystopia. Newlyweds Bethany and Neil join this isolated society, which is devoid of common American laws. With no holds barred, experimental science takes place.
Neoba is a brick building with a population of 10,000. Within the walls is chaos and weirdness. Social norms is a foreign concept in Neoba, as freedom is held at the highest regard. This includes freedom of choice, freedom of expression, and freedom of science. The only laws at Neoba are to respect royalty, the leaders of this wild, cult-like society.
The story follows the lives of Neoba’s royalty, a newlywed couple new to the society, and the scientists within Neoba who are free to create without the limitations of morality.
