by Hugh Howey (Random House Struik, R170)

A handful of people have survived in the future in a ruined world.

In this hostile environment, a community exists in a giant underground silo. Here they live a life of strict rules and regulations, of secrets and lies. To survive, you must follow the rules. But some break the rules.

They are the dangerous ones because of their optimism. They have to be punished – they are allowed outside. Jules is one of those people. She may be the last.


Two Brothers

by Ben Elton (Random House Struik, R220)

Berlin, 1920 – two babies are born. They share everything and become united, indivisible.

The brothers are faced with an unimaginable choice.
