Description

In the near future of Robert Charles Wilson's The Affinities, new analytic technologies-genetic, brain-mapping, and behavioral-have supercharged social media's process of sorting people into fine-tuned affinity groups. To join one of the twenty-two Affinities is to change one's life.

Adam Fisk matches for Tau, one of the largest Affinities. Joining Tau is utopian-at first. Problems in all areas of Adam's life begin to simply sort themselves out as he becomes part of a worldwide network of people dedicated to helping one another. Until his life and the carefully balanced system spin out of control.

As all twenty-two Affinities go global, they devour the power of any and all institutions of the old world. Then, the Affinities begin to go to war-with one another.
