Review by: Robert Arias on Sep. 28, 2011 : star star star star
My first adventure of reading a book on-line. I'm also thinking of publishing one.

Anyway, a brilliant premise, well executed. Like all good future fiction, you took a current trend and took it to its "logical" conclusion. A very dark comedy indeed.
