The Time Injection written in 1968 was certainly an interesting read with an unusual plot - it's set in 2080 in England where the countryside has been abandoned with the advent of indoor farming and the population has all moved to the cities. Everyone lives on top of one another and people are becoming distant and disconnected from themselves, others and their environment.

A group of men enlist Hew Jones, who has previously been outside the walled cities, to take them on a safari trip where they will seek relief by injecting a new drug called Pelargonium which will take away their civilised instincts revert them mentally to a stone-age mindset.

Their little trip falls into disarray almost from the beginning and rapid descents into savagery and a fight for survival.

Overall, it was certainly an unexpectedly unusual story yet in it's own quaint way it was quite enjoyable. Not really anything stand out about it as at its core it is an overcoming adversity novel, just set in a unique setting and in the year 2080. ( )
