England, 2073. The UK has been cut off from the rest of the world and ravaged by environmental disasters. Small pockets of survivors live in isolated communities with no electricity, communications or transportation, eating only what they can hunt and grow.

Evie is a herbalist, living in a future that’s more like the past, and she’s fighting for her life. The young people of this post-apocalyptic world have cobbled together a new religion, based on medieval superstitions, and they are convinced she’s a witch. Their leader? Evie’s own grandson.

Weaving between Evie’s current world and her activist past, her tumultuous relationships and the terrifying events that led to the demise of civilised life, Remember Tomorrow is a beautifully written, disturbing and deeply moving portrait of an all-too-possible dystopian world, with a chilling warning at its heart.

“My grandson means to kill me.”

My Thoughts on Remember Tomorrow

This scary dystopia starts with a perilious situation in 2073, with Evie fearing for her life. She has adjusted to life in a bleak and barren future, by turning back to nature for food and utilising herbs for medicine. But now the danger of being burnt as a witch by her religious freak of a grandson lurks close.

The book then reverts to 2035 to explain just how this future came about. I enjoyed the world building. Especially, as it didn’t feel like too much of a stretch to see this scary world evolving. It gave me all the shivers!

Evie was a great character to follow. She does what she needs to survive and even thrive. She realises that her way of making a difference is by feeding and nuturing herself and her community via the land by working with nature. I love that she made mistakes, but owned those mistakes, and learnt from them.

I appreciated that the chapters were based around the phases of the moon, as it really hit home the message about our planets resources. The moon is the one thing we haven’t managed to pollute yet.

It’s certainly a very thought provoking book and it made me reflect on consumerism, and Brexit. But above all I resolved to stay educated on climate change, and do my part in saving this planet for future generations.

#RememberTomorrow by @saintlywriter is a thought-provoking scary dystopian novel about a future we need to do everything to prevent. And a good read to boot! Click To Tweet

I went into this for a good dystopia read and I got just that, and so much more. There are no zombies or monsters present. But the world presented was still scary and horrible, and a future we need to do everything to prevent.

    I haven’t read a dystopian book in a while. I really have to be in the right mood for them as they can be so dark and sad at times. It sounds frightening how it makes sense how the world came to be. Evie sounds like a great character with how she takes care of herself and also with her owning her mistakes. It sounds like a very thought provoking book and it’s good to think about those topics once in a while and do what we can to be better for the planet. Great review!

      You’re right Lola, it’s important to take time to reflect on those issues and it’s great when you do it through the format of a book.
