Review by: gabearch on Dec. 30, 2014 :
We need works that deal with the crisis of global capitalism, but this is not it. The book starts as a weak rip off of far better dystopian novels such as 1984, but the facade of a story quickly disappears as Mr. Donaghue stops trying and writes in a stream of consciousness style his thoughts on every subject. Why he didn't he just release a book of essays?
In any case, his thoughts are trite and shallow, and after the long slog of making it through the book, his "solution" for the future is a fantasy in the worst sense of the word, and is useful to no one.
You would be far better served by reading 1984, Brave New World or Fahrenheit 411.
