‘Resistance Is Futile’ is the latest science fiction book by Jenny Colgan.
Connie’s smart. She’s funny. But when it comes to love, she’s only human. As a brilliant mathematician with bright red hair – Connie’s used to being considered a little unusual. But when she’s recruited for a top-secret code-breaking project, nothing can prepare her for working with someone quite as peculiar as Luke.
Iâ€™ve been a fan of Jenny Colganâ€™s for a number of years, Iâ€™ve enjoyed her tales of romance and humour set inside bakerys, cafes and a mobile bookshop, they have always left me with a smile on my face when I reached the final page.
I was curious about her latest science fiction book,â€™Resistance Is Futileâ€™ and even though I am not a fan of the genre, I decided to read it for a change of scenery.
The story is mostly seen through the eyes of Connie, a young bright genius who was been recruited for an exciting new programme. This programme could be phenomenal, the only thing is that her and her colleagues canâ€™t tell anyone about it. With the aid of her outspoken and opinionated team, they embark on breaking the top secret code but when the Professor of the university that they are working at is found dead, the university becomes subject to an investigation and one of Connieâ€™s team members, quiet and strange Luke disappears making him the number one culprit.
Connie then finds herself on an incredible journey as she tries to find Luke as well as possibly save mankind, as she discovers there is so much more to the world and makes some realisations about herself along the well.
The story is written in fast pace, in Jennyâ€™s style there is plenty of humour and lighthearted moments in the story as well as plenty scientific parts, that I could just about understand. The characters are interesting so they made the story enjoyable with courageous Connie and her wild hair and gentle, inquisitive Luke, who she looks out for, I found myself enjoying the book immensely.
A delicious concoction of love and science fiction, â€˜Resistance Is Futileâ€™ is a suspenseful and poignant story that was a nice introduction to a new genre for me.
