Turns out the main character already gave this book a movie rating, "Rated PG-13. For language and mild s*xual situations."

The writing of this book was so wacky and it took forever to understand (and I believe it is good that I did not understand all of it if you know what I mean).

Content: loads of language (multiple f-bombs per page), lots of s*xual references, I would personally rate this higher than PG-13 on the movie rating scale.

Full disclosure: I know the author.

If Salvador Dali and H.G. Wells birthed a novella together, this is what I imagine it might look like. It is a model of crafting dystopia, wherein humankind seemingly has welcomed our vuvv overlords, and "creativity" becomes the currency of survival--at least for a time. Seemingly very few stones are left unturned as the book takes aim at the climate crisis, capitalistic inequity, voyeurism of social media...just to name a few.

While marketed as a book for young adults, I think anyone who enjoys satirical dystopian fiction would enjoy this. My only issue was that it seemed too short--I didn't get to invest deeply in any of the characters, but as they are stand-ins for you, me, and possibility, I guess that makes sense.… (mer)
