Hybris by Don Trimble is a dystopia fiction novel that takes place in a time where the world is attempting to be governed by only one government for the entire world. Hybris by Don Trimble follows Hampton Squires (a member of a powerful organization and a one world government advocate)who is in his sixties and is seeking a fountain of youth so that he can have his ultimate power and live long enough to truly enjoy it. Hybris by Don Trimble will appeal most to an audience made up of a mix of adults and young adults who enjoy dystopia fiction.
Hybris by Don Trimble was an interesting book to read it had a bit of a slow start, but really started to heat up when a potential fountain of youth is found in the Sahara Desert. I really began to enjoy Hybris by Don Trimble when the Mansfields become involved. I really liked how they wanted to make the “fountain” available to all people and not just one rich and powerful person. This really struck me as a sort of good vs evil kind of plot line. I really enjoyed Don Trimble’s writing style he just had a way of stinging words together to create an understandable plot line, riveting conversations and dialogue, as well as a remarkable description of both the characters and the locations. I truly enjoyed reading Hybris by Don Trimble, and I hope that Don Trimble continues to write and I would love to see more books taking place in the same universe as Hybris by Don Trimble.
