It’s 2070 and humanity is at the brink of a series of catastrophic disasters caused by mankind itself. To satisfy the ordeal and ward off extinction, a masterful and life-saving facility is constructed as a first step towards re-colonisation. To prevent humanity’s impending decimation, one thousand individuals are randomly chosen worldwide to participate in the program and to be put into a long and deep hibernation to ensure mankind’s survival. Yet, with no one to run the building, a dangerous compromise is made… A computer with artificial intelligence is left in charge of the facility and its inhabitants. Its aim: keep the specimens alive whatever the cost. It all seems to go well until an uproar forces the AI’s programming to take drastic measures that jeopardises the freedom of humans.

After the taken measures, the dust seems to have settled until an accident leaves an individual to rebel. Man and machine face off in an epic struggle for freedom, which leaves the question: would you rather be happy with a lie or be unhappy with the truth?

Jaimy vd Waal is a creative and ambitious writer fascinated by how the status quo is shaped by our technological advancements and vice versa. His debut novel, The Lying Truth, addresses the terrifying controversies that are potentially hidden in the shadow that is cast by mankind’s monolithic technological progression. Bound to capture the reader’s imagination, this book may very well short-circuit all we think and know about who is truly in control. He won’t fail to show the vivid and terrifying future that might lay ahead of us.

    The book is a really good one. It is very deserving and is well written. It is commendable that the story is easy to capture as vivid descriptions are present and it isn't cliché as it goes by its twists and indeed raises a dilemma as to why the characters act the way they do.
