    1. A group of people volunteer to live in an alternative society but are not told the whole truth about the underlying “principles” behind the originator’s ideas. The more sinister methods used to achieve a society that is not depleting the Earth of its natural resources turn out to include a deadly virus and murder. The novel is full of intrigue, twists and turns, deception and eco-terrorism. I loved the fundamental ideas (and possibly Kroes’ ideals) behind the plot in this thought provoki [...]


    2. I found the story quite interesting because environmental issues are important for me. However, the story was simplistic and the text needs to be properly proof read, as I found several spelling mistakes. Despite it's shortfalls I'm intrigued enough to read the second book in the series soon.


    3. This fast-moving and exciting eco-thriller has it all: good writing, thorough research on climate change, an interesting plot, and engaging main characters. That said, I wish the story was not so dystopian with so many villains. Yes, the future under coming climate change is grim news, and, human nature being what it is, people will act in their own short-term self-interest, but I seek hope that the people of the earth will pull together and do what needs doing. Although there is a hint of bette [...]


    4. In the year 2022, things are pretty grim if you are an inveterate web surfer. A worldwide catastrophic event has resulted in the Internet Information Protection Act, or the IPAA. It's the result of a major hacking job that released hundreds of classified documents onto the World Wide Web.Sound familiar? This near-futuristic story hits a little uncomfortably close to home, and the portrayal of a globe in which everybody is issued something called an RFID chip -- required for any attempt at access [...]


    5. This review originally appeared on my blog at gimmethatbook.Thanks to the author for gifting me this review copy!2022 is a fast paced, thought provoking read. Basically, the world is running out of resources and one man thinks he has the solution. His ideas have validity, but is there something more sinister going on under the surface?The plot is easy to believe; we are experiencing this right now, with all the furor over greenhouse gas, oceans full of plastic, and food shortages. Also very beli [...]


    6. This review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon . Please head there for more in-depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely schedule.Hope performs a cunning murder to cover the slip that could destroy the organisation she works for. Olivia tries to finalise a virus. Richard sees the bigger picture. Together they will bring about distruction, both intentional and unintentional.Ah! The twists! Ah! The turns! Ah! The betrayal! Ah! The suspense! Loved it. I really can’t tell you [...]


    7. “Percipience Series is fiction at its best with a compelling factual basis. Kroes eco terrorism thriller is unsettling and puts a lot into perspective about our social structure and partnership with Mother Earth. When I read this novel, I came away with the chilling notion that it could happen sometime in the near future.” walkerputsche.wordpress/Kroes first offering in the eco terrorism thriller genre, 2022, centres on global intimidation made by an eco terrorist constitution and the attemp [...]


    8. Something you should know about me is that I'm very easily distracted and really picky. I need a book to pull me in and keep me in its clutches. The writer needs to make me want to read that next sentence and turn to the next page. In the end, a book shouldn't be a bunch of words on stacked paper. It's a journey. Or, at least it's supposed to feel like one. You're supposed to become the characters; see what they see, feel what they feel. By the time that book is finished, you should not be the s [...]


    9. Did not love this book. It is poorly edited (a sadly frequent issue with ebooks). The dialog is unnatural and forced. Some of the events make no sense because certain characters would never allow them to happen IF they actually behaved the way you would expect. For example, when Spencer is allowed to visit Percipience, Mikhail would NEVER have let him leave without first looking through all of his belongings. Given what Olivia was working on before moving Percipience, she would not have been all [...]


    10. The plot in this novel caught my imagination with a brilliant concept. Businessmen have set up several self-sufficient areas around the globe. Their aim of allowing people to live away from others and develop better habits is shrouded in secrecy and heavily guarded. But different characters have their own agenda.The author has a mission, just like Any Rand whose books I enjoyed back in the day. This is a topic after my own heart, similar to the back-to-the-earth movement I became part of in the [...]


    11. Overall I feel this book is a worthwhile read. The characters are fairly well developed, at least enough that they don't feel like cardboard cutouts and each feels like their own mind. The plot is unique and well crafted. The story is intriguing which adds to the worthwhile-ness of the read. I don't like the format as it gives the book a rough draft feel. The book could use an editor to fix the minor mistakes in grammar and punctuation. Otherwise this is a fresh view on an important issue wrappe [...]


    12. 2022 does not seem very far away anymore to me. But this book is talking about the future and what may be in it. This book talks about how technology may be in 2022. I love to daydream with authors and see what other people think the future may hold. I'm not sure I will like it sometimes. This book for me was a fun and scary read at the same time. :) But the future is like that for me too fun to look forward too and yet a little scary too. * I received this book from the author in exchange for a [...]


    13. 2022 is a very thrilling story about Eco-terrorism, with so many twists and turns. This story is more than I thought it was going to be. Kroes is able to make everything seem so real, making it even more scary in my eyes. by adding a murder this story has a new level of complexity. Everything about this book is wonderful. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to read something new and exciting.


    14. Very thought provoking book on the future of our society with some intrigue and mystery interspersed. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series, "2222".
