People should remember what Dan Andrews has done to their families and the Victorian economy, and kick him and his corrupt government out of office come the next elections.

I wholeheartedly recommend this novel to anyone interested in sci-fi, and also to those interested in contemporary political thrillers who do not mind a sci-fi background to the story.

‘All My Sunsets’ was a leisurely and enjoyable read. It discussed themes such as mortality, progress, and love in a way that had me thinking deeply. Recommended to lovers of science fiction stories that make you feel good about progress.
What a disgrace!
