Carrier is a dystopian story set in the future. The democratic government that we know has fallen and has been taken over by corporations. Naya is a sex slave for the Auberge Corporation. When they discover that Naya is pregnant, she is given some credits and sent out into the city to fend for herself, and to find a “replacement”.
I first thought that Carrier was going to be some kind of “scruples” book. What would you do? Would you screw over a stranger to save your unborn children? Oh yeah, Naya is pregnant with twins!
Carrier is so much more than this. Shortly after being released and discovering the filth that is littered throughout the city, Naya meets Ric. Together, with the help of Sonia (another former sex slave) and Tym, they discover that there is a lot more going on than meets the eye.
Tibbets has done so much more than just write a great story. She has created an incredibly unique world, but one that is not so far-fetched that our own could not become like it. She created such depth of details that I could see and smell the city.
Carrier was not exactly what I thought it would be, it was so much better. She focuses on the depths of human depravity. This is a story to make you think about what is bad in our own world. I will be finding out where Naya’s story goes from here.
