About the Book

In Rainbow City your colour counts.

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.

My Review

When I was told that Oliver was publishing a new book I jumped at the chance to review it, and once I found out it was a dystopian novel I knew it was going to be a great book as I love his books and love Dystopian books as well.

The book itself is brilliant and is a great introduction for Oliver to delve into dystopian series.  The book is a massive step away from Oliver’s previous books, some of which I have reviewed previously for blog tours.

The story follows Theo who is close to being forced to join the military against his wishes as that is what happens in the world he lives in.  As he is so against the military and wants to get away from it all he joins a rebellion and fights against the powers to make the world a better place.

Unlike most dystopian novels I have read int he past this book doesn’t have the usual fantasy elements in it so it is a different class of book and quite original in that capacity.  I thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to read book 2 in the series when it is relesaed.

About the Author

thumbnail_Oliver Tidy Author Image

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’d even be happy with something taking up space in the remainder bin, on a pavement, in the rain, outside The Works.

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. Very kind. Kind enough that two years ago he was able to give up the day job and write full-time. 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. All available through Amazon (clickable link to Am Author Page). 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. Oliver is back living on Romney Marsh in the UK. His home. He still wakes in the night from time to time shouting about seeing his books on a shelf in Waterstones.
