The Passengers

Meras hidden in their cars their panic is broadcast to millions of people around the world But the public will show their true colors when they are asked Which of these people should we saveAnd who should we kill firs The Passengers by John Marrs is a 2019 Berkley Books publicationAn unrelenting techno thrillerSet in the not so distant future Britain has made driverless cars mandatory Not only that there are no longer manual overrides placing the passenger at the total mercy of technology When there is an accident a jury is called in to judge who was at fault Let s just say they had better not rule against the car Despite the claim the autonomous car is the safest choice for all concerned one morning a hacker takes control of eight cars holding passengers from all walks of life Each person is informed their destination has been changed and within a few hours they will be dead Within moments of the takeover social media explodes with the news The hackers take full advantage of their moment in the spotlight by turning the situation into a reality TV like contest asking the public to vote for who will live or die Meanwhile a panel of jurors is gathered to determine who to blame for the situation they are in and are also tasked with deciding the fate of the eight passengers Only one of the jurors seems to have a real conscience but can she single handedly and without prejudice uncover the truth Marrs taps into our darkest fears regarding technology and AI by imagining some of the many ways it could backfire on us But to make the scenario mean something we must feel some empathy for the characters caught in the hacker s clever trap Some of them are sympathetic than others but they all carry some sort of explosive secret that could change the opinion of the voting audience In many ways Marrs nails the desensitized judgmental attitudes of social media users and the numb reality show mentality that is already the norm The twists are plentiful and always a huge surprise as the reader is seldom able to fully digest one event or revelation before another takes place The pacing is frenetic but it complements the story and keeps readers turning pages at lightning speedThe story is dark but sometimes it has a satirical tone which also suggests the book isn t meant to sound alarmist just a bit cautionary The execution is a little rocky as is the structuring but I m thinking that may have been by design since it enhances the dark humor and the real time layout of the story Overall I m not sure how well the book will hold up over time but for the here and now this is a highly imaginative addictive thrill ride that kept me thoroughly entertained and on the edge of my seat from start to finish
