"There is no consent under capitalism. Docile is a science fiction parable about love and sex, wealth and debt, abuse and power, a challenging tour de force that at turns seduces and startles. To be a Docile is to be kept, body and soul, for the uses of the owner of your contract. To be a Docile is to forget, to disappear, to hide inside your body from the horrors of your service. To be a Docile is to sell yourself to pay your parents' debts and buy your childrens' future. Elisha Wilder's family has been ruined by debt, handed down to them from previous generations. His mother never recovered from the Dociline she took during her term as a Docile, so when Elisha decides to try and erase the family's debt himself, he swears he will never take the drug that took his mother from him. Too bad his contract has been purchased by Alexander Bishop III, whose ultra-rich family is the brains (and money) behind Dociline and the entire Office of Debt Resolution. When Elisha refuses Dociline, Alex refuses to believe that his family's crowning achievement could have any negative side effects-and is determined to turn Elisha into the perfect Docile without it"--… (más)

Docile is a dystopic science fiction drama heavy on political discussion and social critique. It also incorporates a large amount of slavefic tropes as well as exploring hurt/comfort, and is a drama filled waltz through a world where capitalism has been taken to its utmost extremes, and people routinely sell themselves into legal slavery to escape debtor’s prison. While it can be a rather dark and disturbing read at times, it is a journey that gives us food for thought on how we interact with our own privileges and situations in life.

It fucked me up.
Ok, I know it's kind of a slave fic, and everybody should know it, going into this book. But me and this book just... clicked. Yes, it's problematic in a way. At the same time, it makes you think, it makes you sympathize with the characters you don't want to sympathize with. To put it simply, it made me really emotional. ( )

After the synopsis I just had to have this novel and needless to say, I was slightly disappointed it wasn't the stand out I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong I loved the whole m/m science fiction concept and I'm not surprised since Tor has been the most watched publisher this year for me but I expected something more to just wow me, you know? Nevertheless the storyline and writing style the author was able to demonstrated was impressive, and I will definitely keep an eye out for any future releases from him.
