To echo the other review, this paints such a believable picture of the future that it's actually a little scary and makes you think hard about what's important right now. The ending was a little swift but only because I wanted it to go on forever.

An imagined world which goes beyond Orwell and Wyndham, drawing inventively on the ways we sacrifice freedom for convenience. Are we already choosing to be controlled so we no longer need to think? By tearing off society’s sugar coating the author paints a future which is all about now. Incisive, intricate, chilling and moving. Highly recommended.
