ABOUT THE BOOK
Theo lives and works in the Blue Zone of Rainbow City. He is almost sixteen at which age he will begin four years conscription – military or mines. He wants neither. He hates his life and despises the cruelty, injustice and inequality that prevails. When the opportunity arises for Theo to be involved in the fight for change he grabs it, knowing that failure will cost him everything.
THE PROLE SOLDIER by Oliver Tidy is a detailed, compelling, and slightly terrifying story about a world where inequality and cruelty prevail and what can happen when those who are ignored and treated like dirt begin to recognise the injustice and decide to fight back.
Theo is just an ordinary teenager who works in the factories by day and scavenges at night in a world where those in the worst sections of society seem to have just accepted their lot - just another invisible speck on the ground to be used up and spat out by those in power, But as it gets closer to his conscription date, Theo starts to unearth the truth about those who control the zones and as he gets deeper into their secrets and lies, Theo will place himself in danger that he never knew was possible in order to expose the truth.
Gripping and action-packed, THE PROLE SOLDIER by Oliver Tidy is a dystopian story that is all too believable in the world that we live in today - scared people placing supreme power into the hands of those who will wield it for their own gain ...
The characters and the world of Rainbow City are excellently described and you can almost imagine yourself there (although there are times when that is harsh and uncomfortable), and I was completely absorbed in this book. An excellent read by Oliver Tidy and I look forward to more.
Crime writing author Oliver Tidy has had a life-long love affair with books. He dreams of one day writing something that he could find in a beautifully-jacketed hard-cover or paperback copy on a shelf in a book shop.
He found the time and opportunity to finally indulge his writing ambition after moving abroad to teach English as a foreign language to young learners eight years ago.
Impatient for success and an income that would enable him to stay at home all day in his pyjamas he discovered self-publishing. He gave it go. By and large readers have been kind to him. Kind enough that now, after moving back to the UK to his beloved Romney Marsh, Oliver is a full-time writer. Mostly in his pyjamas.
Oliver Tidy has fourteen books in three series, a couple of stand-alone novels and a couple of short story collections. Among his books are The Romney and Marsh Files (British police procedurals set in Dover) and the Booker & Cash novels, a series of private detective tales set in the south of England and published by Bloodhound Books.
