The future waits for no one.

In this new world, speed and efficiency are everything, and the populace zooms along in a perpetually stimulated haze. Angela thinks she's the only person in her family--maybe the only person on the planet--who sees anything wrong with this picture. But the truth is she's not alone.

Angela finds herself recruited into a resistance movement where the key to rebellion is taking things slow. In their secret underground hideout, they create a life unplugged from the rapid-fire culture outside. Can they free the rest of the world before the powers that be shut down their utopian experiment?

From revolutionary and award-winning playwright Adam Rapp and veteran cartoonist and animator Mike Cavallaro comes Decelerate Blue , a dark, breath-taking new vision of an all-too-plausible future for America.

A dystopian future where it's all about going fast. Everyone is supposed to use contractions, watch 10 minute "hyper movies", and read condensed versions of old books. Its taboo to slow down and enjoy the small things. Our lead doesn't like the fast pace of the world and falls into an underground of dissenters. It has the bones of an interesting concept, but the characters just didn't feel quite fleshed enough and I wanted more story development. Still a solid read with interesting points on where the world could easily fall.
