Where is the humanity heading?
This is the question that comes with the English version launch of the futuristic novel “TENTORIA”. A book that raises questions on mankind’s hope of living into a concrete, non-virtual world away from the technology drug seeping deeper and deeper inside our body.
We are in a mad commercial race for bigger sales and an increased diversity. Our appetite for entertainment grows exponentially: touch-screens, smart-phones, a more intelligent Internet, voice and visual recognition, intelligent video analytics, drones, self-driving cars, robots, digital projection lenses, augmented reality, stronger artificial intelligence. Today e-social networks are a big part of our lives, will this impact beyond control our social behavior tomorrow? Today we see more and more intelligent robots, will nanorobots control and change atoms, molecules, and cells, objects or human body parts tomorrow?
“By the 23rd century, the average life span had reached three hundred years. No one wished to die anymore.” (Chapter 17, page 82)
Here is a blurb of this captivating book not to be missed.
An army of bionic humans made up as a last-ditch solution to establish peace will turn against humanity.
In the 22nd century, mankind enters a new world war that will produce the first generation of Tentorians. Cyborgs with functioning bodies and human intelligence, they are the first genuine success in the artificial improvement. In time, the Tentorians come officially to be a nation, showing more and more their true nature: blood and power-thirsty, human-bodied machines. Thus, in the 25th century, the great powers made up their minds to hunt them down all over the world and have them isolated inside a region called TENTORIA.
“[Be] ready to forget the future” (Chapter 50, page 341)
A Tentorian nation that will bear consequences on the past.
The action moves back in time 500 years, to the year 2024. Cole is a 27-year-old young man leading a happy life in a peculiar world: a planet Earth consisting but of a piece of land surrounded by one single large ocean, and a population of 12 million people ruled by a secret organization. As the story unfolds, Cole realizes the reality of his existence at break-neck speed on the edge of survival.
From the readers:
“The kind of book hooking you and not letting you go until finding the truth, who lies, who dies, who loves, and in particular what was really going on there!”
“It was hard to put it aside. It set my mind in ‘motion’ and shaped an utterly unexpected vision over what our not too far future might look like.”
"A narration on future...or past, on mankind’s addiction to an increasingly sophisticated technology or to a straightforward achieved happiness."
