A bestseller beloved by countless readers!
Syncher begins with a somewhat offbeat idea of connecting to the natural world through a game. As a
result of rapid climate change, humanity in the future has created a giant dome on the Korean peninsula
and developed a specialized tourist zone called New Amazon which contains animals and plants from
around the world. During a new Ice Age, New Amazon had been closed and forgotten, but life within it
continues to thrive. Syncher is a game that allows its users, called synchers, to connect to the
consciousnesses of animals and share their senses.
Vivid, fascinating images of exotic scenes and rich sensory descriptions, including smells,
convey the protagonist Mima’s emotions and trembling heart to readers as she steps into the forbidden
land. Readers will also “synch” with this futuristic society and its marvelous nature along with the
characters in the book. The secret, unimagined world of New Amazon will come to life before your eyes.
Writer Bae Mi-ju’s fresh interpretation of the relationship between nature and humanity and sharp
insights into present reality shine in Syncher. A deep affection for humanity and a profound friendship
across social classes and species is the quintessence of sensitive science fiction.
