Love has always been a thing of great mystery and it can bring out the best in us, but also the worst.
‘The Rental Heart’ by Kirsty Logan published in 2010 is a science fiction story set in a world where it is possible to rent out hearts.
The main science fiction element of ‘The Rental Heart’ is the possibility of renting out hearts. The heart is no longer the necessary organ that keeps us alive, but a mechanical thing made by metal comparable to today's spare parts for cars.
Whenever you feel heartbroken you can simply go and get a new one and start fresh. The story is set in a future very similar to ours
but I would still call it a dystopia because of all the advanced technology displayed throughout the story with focus on the rental hearts.
