|Identity crises, consumerism, and star-crossed teenage love in a futuristic society where people connect to the Internet via feeds implanted in their brains. For Titus and his friends, it started out like any ordinary trip to the moon - a chance to party during spring break and play with some stupid low-grav at the Ricochet Lounge. But that was before the crazy hacker caused all their feeds to malfunction, sending them to the hospital to lie around with nothing inside their heads for days. And it was before Titus met Violet, a beautiful, brainy teenage girl who has decided to fight the feed and its omnipresent ability to categorize human thoughts and desires. Following in the footsteps of George Orwell, Anthony Burgess, and Kurt Vonnegut Jr., M. T. Anderson has created a not-so-brave new world and a smart, savage satire that has captivated readers with its view of an imagined future that veers unnervingly close to the here and now.|

I bought this book after reading it at the library.
It's a really easy read, but still, I love it.
It's different from most books I've read, but fits the science fiction/futuristic genre well.
Funny, witty, tear-evoking this book brings readers into the future. It tells of how fun and simple the lives of Americans are after the invention of the Feed. I had to buy this book after I remembered how much I loved this book. M.T Anderson writes with finesse and I'm thoroughly convinced that this might be one of many possible futures that we might have to endure. Overall, I loved every single page of this book.
The book is a pretty good read. It is about the overtake of technology in soceity and the decline in the enviroment, health, and simple way of life. An easy read, but the language is a little strange because of the future slang words. Anderson does not ease you into the setting, but instead forces you to be an active reader. If you like Postman, you will like this book.
Excellent condition-like brand new. Appreciated the fast delivery. Would do business with this seller again.
