Bliss – can it get any better than this?
Given the choice would you rather live in a perfect world that isn’t real or fight to build something that is.

Bliss is very different from anything I have listened to from Theatrephonic before. I listened in two parts though I admit I did re-listen to a few bits to remind myself.

Jack meets Katy and it’s love at first sight for both of them. It’s pure ‘bliss’, just like the world has become in the future. A world of perfect happiness, free housing and medical treatment and no crime. And it’s all governed by Senator Bliss and the ’29’.

But is it all as perfect as it seems?
I’m not usually into this genre, but Bliss was brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Exciting story and some great characterisations, particularly Jack. And a warning for the future.
