Mia Holl lives in a state governed by The Method, where good health is the highest duty of the citizen. Everyone must submit medical data and sleep records to the authorities on a montly basis, and regular exercise is mandatory. Mia is young and beautiful, a successful scientist who is outwardly obedient, but with an intellect that marks her as a subversive. Convinced that her brother has been wrongfully convicted of a terrible crime, Mia comes up against the full force of a regime determined to control every aspect of its citizens' lives. The Method, set in the middle of the twenty-first century, deals with pressing questions: to what extent can the state curtail the rights of the individual? And does the invidicual have a right to resist? Juli Zeh has written a thrilling and visionary book about our future, and our present.

This book has been translated from German.
