The peripheral: the plot

Flynne Fisher is a young woman living in the American South. The synopsis describes her as “smart, ambitious, and doomed” because she can’t get out of her small town. She works at a 3D printing shop but earns extra money playing virtual reality video games for the rich. In the book, her brother Ella Burton initially did the video game work, hired as virtual world security, but left to protest a religious extremist group, so Flynne takes over the job temporarily.

One of the games he plays turns out to be part of the future. A connection has been made between Flynne’s world and a version of London set 70 years in the future. What she sees there is both interesting and dangerous, but she keeps going back, trying to figure out who created the opening that allows her to be there. In the original story, she witnesses a murder and people from the future try to bring her back so she can identify the person responsible.

In the book, the story is told from Flynne’s point of view and the eyes of the individual in London. Wilf Netherton is a publicist working for a diplomat who wants to forge a connection with a group of humans called “Patchers”. They are so named because they live on a garbage island in the Pacific Ocean that has been modified to support life. This does not go well for Wilf, and his and the diplomat’s efforts result in the death of the entire population of Patchers. This group of people reappears later in the story.

The story ends with Wilf and Flynne moving on with their lives after being rescued towards the end of the book. A time jump shows where their lives end, with each finding love, but still communicating across time and space from time to time.
