Blurb The Prole Soldier – Oliver Tidy
The Prole Soldier is set in a dystopian near future
Theo lives and works in the Blue Zone of Rainbow City.
He is almost sixteen at which age he will begin four years conscription – military or mines. He wants neither. He hates his life and despises the cruelty, injustice and inequality that prevails.
When the opportunity arises for Theo to be involved in the fight for change he grabs it, knowing that failure will cost him everything.
Oliver Tidy Author Bio
Crime writing author Oliver Tidy has had a life-long love affair with books. He dreams of one day writing something that he could find in a beautifully-jacketed hard-cover or paperback copy on a shelf in a book shop. He’d even be happy with something taking up space in the remainder bin, on a pavement, in the rain, outside The Works.
He found the time and opportunity to finally indulge his writing ambition after moving abroad to teach English as a foreign language to young learners eight years ago. Impatient for success and an income that would enable him to stay at home all day in his pyjamas he discovered self-publishing. He gave it go. By and large readers have been kind to him. Very kind. Kind enough that two years ago he was able to give up the day job and write full-time. Mostly in his pyjamas.
Oliver Tidy has fourteen books in three series, a couple of stand-alone novels and a couple of short story collections. All available through Amazon (clickable link to Am Author Page). Among his books are The Romney and Marsh Files (British police procedurals set in Dover) and the Booker & Cash novels, a series of private detective tales set in the south of England and published by Bloodhound Books. Oliver is back living on Romney Marsh in the UK. His home. He still wakes in the night from time to time shouting about seeing his books on a shelf in Waterstones.

I am a huge fan of dystopian style books and while there were some parts that I didn’t enjoy as much this was a well planned out book with so much to offer.
What I likes was that itnwasnt typical to what I have read. Most dystopian seem to be fantasy oriented and this really didn’t have that feel.
Itbwas a unique look through the eyes of the main character and in the world that they live in which is similar but not so dissimilar to what we face daily.
The is the main character and it’s his fight to stop the injustice and inequalities that this world has. While I find that it’s a laudable goal I also liked how they really tried to get things to work out for the best.
