New Blurb for my Novel

So as part of my imminent relaunch of my novel I have updated the blurb – I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions. I get quite a few clicks on the Amazon link but not many sales. As it stands the blurb is fairly sparse so this new one tries to address that without getting too big.

What do you think? Would you read it on the basis of this blurb?

Trapped. In a world where everything is measured and controlled, where league tables rule supreme, Marc lives a weary existence. Until one day he breaks down – and breaks through the walls of society.

Four people, four rebels. Four journeys that lead them through self-doubt and self discovery. Their journey draws them into a  dangerous world of population control and drugs, of genetic engineering and animal warfare, of presidential assassination and fugitives.

Ultimately their paths converge on the road to revolution and the discovery of an ancient secret.

  1. I like the way in which the blurb is written, it feels very lively, fast paced and sparks action, but to me personaly, with my reading interest in mind, it says too much. It makes me feel a bit like I already know what is going to happen, like the whole book is summed up completely in those few sentences, it leaves little questions for me and mystery. This is just a one person personal opinion though, but I hope it helps you get some insight, and sorry if it was uncalled for.
