Hello bookie buddies!!
I woke up this morning thinking it was Friday, when I woke up and realised it was only (insert any day here except Friday 😂) I was bitterly disappointed! – This is me Every. Single. Day
So in true grumpy style I decided to start another audio book, and this was the one I picked up.
Why Did You Pick It Up Vicci?
This will be the 4th book of John Marrs that I have read, and it certainly won’t be the last.
I love the way that he builds the story, and that you get really invested in the characters lives. And I’m super excited about his book “The One” that is soon to be a major Netflix series.

Set in a not-too-distant-future, Britain is now seeing self-drive cars on our roads every day, they are the saviour of our highways, as they help the environment, as well as cutting down traffic jams, they can see possible problems ahead, so will take alternative routes.
You can just get in the car, and relax, maybe sit and read the daily paper, maybe finish putting on your make-up, or because the windows turn opaque and let you play videos, you can sit and scroll through Facebook and Twitter on the way to work…Sounds great right?
And it is, everyone has embraced the future, except some, some people really don’t like these cars at all!
Libby is one of these people, she is called for jury duty, but not for what you think, these juries consist of just one member of the public, and they are held in secret to discuss accidents involving Driverless cars, and also to determine who (or what) is at fault.
Headed by the obnoxious MP Jack, the trial is in full swing when the hacker joins the conversation, and he makes it clear very quickly who is in charge!
You see, it turns out that the cars that “could never be hacked” actually could be, and the hacker will show you what happens when you do not pay attention.
A live feed has been set up on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram showing the courtroom and all of the Jurors, it also shows the random 8 people that are now stuck in their cars and are all driving to the same location, the exact location, meaning that they will all crash…but the hacker will allow one person to live, who decides that….Oh…it’s you!!
A wonderful read with a scary look into our near future.
Mr Marrs, I think Ron Weasley said it best:
