Disturbing and funnyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 February 2018
I read this book in almost one go. I had to put it down a couple of times but was soon back to it. I felt sorry for Ian and wished he'd have something go right for him. It's quite disturbing that we all seem to rely on tech these days. It makes you think, do we really need it?
VR gaming all day and night! No need to care for yourself...your robot can handle that!Reviewed in Canada on 8 April 2018
Loved it so much that I read it twice! George describes a future which I see as very possible. One where because of robots, there just will not be enough jobs for the people that want them. A world where there is no stigma attached to being on social assistance and gaming all. A world where families stay together because their children can't afford to move out. One where those who do have jobs, are pandered to and lusted over by those who do not. George's spot on description of a faithless family, unwilling to wait for a creative partner to slowly build them a better future, makes me wonder if this book is Art imitating Life. Not that he doesn't have the skills to just pull it out of his hat! His many wonderfully surprising and varied stories could not have been lived through in one lifetime. Thank you George, keep up the great work. I believe in you!
great way to use an hour and a half that I don't regret taking time to use!Reviewed in the United States on 26 December 2017
I got this email from this author whose book I had downloaded from an place, like I do quite often (My TBR pile is huge as I am in the middle of ARC reading and editing three books at this time) and then I get this email from this author titled Ouch. So I took a few minutes to read his book. When I wasn't laughing at how it reminded me of my all-time favorite story of Marching Morons that was published before I was born and upon which the movie Idiocracy was based, I was despairing at how accurately it portrays the majority of the entitlement complex I see embodied in the majority of the people I encounter on a daily basis when I actually interface with people outside my house. I gave it only 4 stars because I cannot abide the misuse of first-person pronouns in any capacity, and there was some of that present in this book. Mr. Donnelly lost a star for overuse of nominative case pronouns. I am a picky booger (pun intended, for those of you who follow my reviews, you get this!) when it comes to grammar and I am unapologetic about my pickiness. I will never be apologetic regarding pickiness about the major means of communication among the members of what should be the most intelligent life forms on the planet. The story is solid and entertaining, the characters are definitely stereotypical, but I truly believe the author meant for them to be just that in order to make his point. I believe he made many valid points, upon many of which I suspect we wholeheartedly agree should we ever get the chance to converse face to face! It was an enjoyable hour and a half read for me. If you like a story that decries stupid stuff, this is your read and you will enjoy it as much as I did!
Hard to followReviewed in the United States on 28 September 2018
I had a hard time following the story of this book. In one chapter Jack is 8 the the next 16 and then back to 11. Not sure if the story was jumping between now and future or if it was just poor editing. There were loose ends that never got tied up such as we learn Ian's friend is hired to sabotage Ian's life over a long period of time but there was no explanation as to why. I could see what the author was trying to relate to the reader. I just think it was drug out a bit and hard to follow.
