Summary "Set in the future, in 2075, is this novel for young adults by New Zealand author Bernard Beckett. The island-state of the Republic had risen up from the destroyed world: isolated, ordered and repressive. Its citizens are alive, but not free. What remains of the outside world is kept at bay. Planes are gunned down; refugees shot on sight. But then a man named Adam Forde rescues a girl from the sea. Watching pyrotechnic sunsets instead of downloading them, Anaximander studies for entry to The Academy. Her exam topic: Adam Fordes challenge to the Republic. With it, the questions of Fordes philosopher class: what makes a human? What makes a soul? Genesis is a philosophical novel that asks all the big questions about who we are."--Provided by publisher
