The Earth is old – very old – and Diaspar is Earth’s sole remaining city: securely sealed within its impenetrable dome.
Yet Alvin is restless: he is a “unique” – one of only a handful of such to be born every few millennia. Alvin is convinced that there must be a way to leave Diaspar: yet his peers ridicule the very idea of anyone wishing to leave the perfect city.
- Can Alvin discover one of the few exits from Diaspar? And even if he can –
- Will he uncover the real reason that Diaspar continues to exist so long after all other cities on Earth have vanished?
