In 2153, cancer was cured. In 2189, AIDS. And in 2235, the last members of the human race traveled to a far distant planet called Pearl to begin the next chapter of humanity. Several hundred years after their arrival, the remainder of humanity lives in a utopian colony in which every want is satisfied automatically, and there is no need for human labor, struggle or thought. But when the machines that regulate the colony begin to malfunction, the colonists are faced with a test for the first time in their existence. With the lives of the colonists at stake, it is left to a young man named Samuel to repair these breakdowns and save the colony. Aided by his friend Penny, Samuel rises to meet each challenge. But he soon discovers a mysterious group of people behind each of these problems, and he must somehow find and defeat these saboteurs in order to rescue his colony.
In 2235 humans no longer live on earth. They also do not have to worry about anything. Everything has been cured and everything is done or them. Then everything falls apart. The life they are used to ends. The do not know what to do. For the first time these humans, who have never done anything, have to save their lives.
This book reminded me of the movie Wall-e. Except they weren't fat and riding in chairs. It was a very interesting story. I liked reading about how everyone dealt with the situation.
