"Britain, the not-too-distant future.

Idir is sitting the British Citizenship Test.

He wants his family to belong.

Twenty-five questions to determine their fate. Twenty-five chances to impress.

When the test takes an unexpected and tragic turn, Idir is handed the power of life and death.

How do you value a life when all you have is multiple choice?"


The Test is a standalone sci-fi novella by Sylvain Neuvel.

There are a lot of conversations that can be had from this book, from ethics to morality and philosophy.

That being said, that doesn't mean I really enjoyed reading this. The way this was written just didn't work for me. A large amount of the text was in italics which made it hard for me to focus on what was being said.
