If we are so dependent on the technologies that others control, what would we do if all our smart technology were to be suddenly withdrawn from us? How would we survive?

Actor and writer Geoffrey Beevers explores consumerism and our surveillance society in The Withdrawal, his fourth novel, brought to life for the first time on audio.
It is 2048. Alec works for U-Chooz, the giant tech corporation that controls everything in a consumer society.
But Alec is divorced and alone, and longs to trace his lost daughter.
Threatened with the withdrawal of his identity, he is sucked into the dark inner world of the U-Chooz elite.
Originally published in hardback by Fantom Publishing in August 2019, Geoffrey Beevers now reads his homage to Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four for audiobook release.
Of narrating the novel for audio, author Geoffrey Beevers said, “It was really fun to do, in some ways easier than getting to know an unfamiliar book from scratch, which you sometimes have to do at quite short notice as an actor. At least I knew well all the twists and turns of the story and what I meant to say! The most difficult part was to get a sense of how the characters would sound when they spoke, especially some of the minor characters.
“But it was very enjoyable to do, even though some of it is quite dark. I only hope the listeners will find it as enjoyable!”
