“Mark Whiteway’s newest novel, Carrie Anne’s World, is a mesmerizing story of love, humanity, and hope in the face of extinction.
“While the science fiction elements of the story make it an engaging and sensational read, the questions it brings up about the consequences of global warming are relevant and important. These stakes give the story a powerful and thought-provoking layer that left me thinking about the story even after I had closed the book.” Emerson Craig – Literary Blogger
“ Carrie Anne is an enigma; despite her clear lack of awareness or knowledge of her own history or the world, she is one of the most intriguing characters that I have ever come across. The mystery surrounding her is one that truly captivates the reader, as you not only want to know her story, but you want to know the world she inhabits.
“Carrie Anne’s World is a novel that presents the world in uproar. However, as the reader delves through the pages of this complex narrative, it becomes much clearer that this is a novel that pushes the boundaries of science fiction. Whiteway intertwines science fiction with a psychological mystery that the reader can’t help but want to unravel, paired with an entirely unexpected conclusion that is deeply satisfying.” – Hannah Tindale BA Hons English Literature
