Resistance is Futile Synopsis :
She’s smart. She’s funny. But she’s only human….
As a high-ranking mathematician in a male-dominated field – with bright red hair – Connie’s used to being considered a little unusual. But she’s nowhere near as peculiar as Luke, who is recruited to work alongside her on a top-secret code-breaking project.
Just what is this bizarre sequence they’re studying? It isn’t a solution to the global energy crisis. It isn’t a new wavelength to sell microwave ovens. The numbers are trying to tell them something…and it seems only Luke knows what. The truth is out there. Will Connie dare to find it?
In this whirlwind adventure, Sunday Times best-selling author Jenny Colgan boldly goes where no author has gone before….
Jenny Colgan is the author of numerous best-selling novels, including Christmas at the Cupcake Café, Little Beach Street Bakery, and Welcome to Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop of Dreams. As Jenny T. Colgan, she has also written Doctor Who tie-in novel Dark Horizons and several Doctor Who short stories.

The Book Beginning:
At first glance the dead hand looked almost beautiful — outstretched, thrown open and perfectly clear — transparent as if made of resin or glass or ice — a piece of sculpture.
Now that’s an opening to grab your attention!
This title was one of the May Book Releases That Caught My Eye.
“I never knew I could so enjoy a book about maths, amphibians, and total world annihilation. Quirky, funny and romantic, and it doesn’t even matter if you don’t know what fractals are.” (Sophie Kinsella)
I think I’m really going to enjoy this one (particularly since I’m one of those odd balls that do know what fractals are). Lucy Price-Lewis’s narration sounds very fitting for this ‘thinking’ leading lady, and also very pleasant on the ear.
