I knew that I had missed something important when I saw the number of my friends on Goodreads who had read this book and loved it, and then was chastised by someone for not having read it yet once I had put it on my “to read” shelf. All right already! 🙂 It was the next book I picked up, and everyone was right: it was fantastic!
I finished this book weeks ago, and I am a big jet lagged so this will be brief. Coming of age + lives lived online + dystopian setting + underdogs vs the man = brilliance. I am a huge fan of dystopian literature, and this novel deserves to be in the pantheon. It is clever, funny, stark, and a cautionary tale regarding our spiral into living our lives online.
I think this could make an outstanding film, and I look forward to the forthcoming adaptation.
