Dell Zero by C. L. Ervin is a post-apocalyptic novel in which characters live ideal, peaceful, passive, carefree existences, as long as they conform to a politically imposed norm. Ervin presents readers an alternative social reality. It is very complete, so the reader will have to do a bit of work to keep up. There are lots of characters which are described in great background detail. I used a highlighter and had to refer back occasionally to verify which character I was following. That is because I read the book over a three-day period. If you are a fan of imagining what a different world might look like or what needs a social organization must fulfill to succeed; this is the book for you. If I had known it would be this detailed, I would have scheduled the time to read and finish it in one sitting.
