The Transition
The Transition | Luke Kennard
6 posts | 5 read | 17 to read
An early thirties couple are forced to move in with an older couple in this dark and very funny thought experiment What do you do with a generation who've had everything, but still can't grow up? Perhaps this is you. Perhaps you still owe your student loan, and make jokes about how you'll never pay it back, so it's easy to ignore. We know. Perhaps you spend more than you earn. Perhaps you still live with your parents. We know. Perhaps those ignored bills and reminders have become threats and court summonses. We know, and we can help. Welcome to The Transition. While taking part in The Transition you and your partner will spend six months living under the supervision of your mentors, two successful adults of a slightly older generation. Freed from your financial responsibilities, you will be coached through the key areas of the scheme - Employment, Nutrition, Responsibility, Relationship, Finances and Self-Respect - until you are ready to be reintegrated into adult society. At the end of your six months - who knows what discoveries you'll have made about yourself? The 'friends' you no longer need. The talents you'll have found time to nurture. The business you might have kick-started. Who knows where you'll be?

Halfway through this one. It‘s received some mixed reviews. Right now there is a sort of shadowy, secret society feel to it.

Jokila Update: I elected not to read this book despite the beautiful cover. Too many reviews warned it tries to skewer millennials and I don‘t need that in my life, thanks! 💖 1y

Millennials are bashed enough I don‘t want to read a book dripping of satire about it too 🙄

This was next up to replace the book I DNFed just now and it‘s trashing millennials. I can‘t win today. Guess it‘s a good thing they‘re coming off my TBR 😂

Lea It must be the time for bails. I‘ve seen a lot in my feed today and just bailed on one, too. 1y

This is the book that kicked me out of a reading slump. Fun, thought provoking speculative fiction for the win!!!

Megabooks I was on the fence about this. I‘ll probably pick it up now! 😃 2y

Luke Kennard's debut novel is a satire on Millennials but the humour isn't sharp enough or black enough to hit its targets, the Millennials are unsympathetically portrayed as victims of their own sense of entitlement, the conspiracy elements don't make a lick of sense, the allusion to a central text made for some pretentiously bad writing and ultimately I just didn't care about anyone enough to be invested in how their story ended.
