"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.
