Book Review: Resistance is Futile, by Jenny T. Colgan

In this whirlwind adventure, Sunday Times bestselling author Jenny Colgan boldly goes where no author has gone before . . .

Connie thinks she’s never met anyone quite like Luke Beith before.

She has no idea how right she is.

As a high-ranking mathematician in a male-dominated field – with bright red hair – Connie’s used to being considered a little unusual.

But she’s nowhere near as peculiar as Luke, who is recruited to work alongside her on a top-secret code breaking project.

Just what is this bizarre sequence they’re studying? It isn’t a solution to the global energy crisis. It isn’t a new wavelength to sell microwave ovens. The numbers are trying to tell them something . . . and it seems only Luke knows what.

The truth is out there. Will Connie dare to find it?


I’ve been a huge fan of Jenny Colgan’s beautiful romantic comedies for years, but I’ve also always loved the fact that Jenny has a nerd-side and is a Whovian, much like myself. Therefore, when I first heard about Jenny’s new sci-fi novel, my inner fangirl was jumping for joy, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Many thanks to Orbit for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I’m going to keep my review pretty short and sweet as I don’t want to risk any spoilers, but I really just have to say how much I enjoyed it. I loved that the main characters were all mathematicians, and seeing how they viewed the world. Each character was so wonderfully sweet and unique. I admired Connie’s bravery and totally fell for Luke’s adorkable-ness.

As any good sci-fi novel must be, Resistance is Futile is cleverly constructed and believable in the world Jenny has created. Although in a different setting and genre, there was still a huge familiarity to Jenny’s warm, clever and insightful writing that I instantly loved. I definitely recommend this if you fancy something a bit different from the norm.
