Product description

Review

A highly original and gripping novel, this is also a frightening commentary on overarching governmental control, with just enough plausibility to be terrifying. --Publishers Weekly

If you wonder if Edward Snowden's revelations matter, read this book and think about it for a while. --Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature

Author Michael McGhee clearly depicts a world obsessed with spending, and a reader can feel the depth of the situation he has created. . . . The novel s consumerism premise is quite believable and described as almost inevitable, which adds to the excitement of the novel. It allows readers to explore a futuristic world that s not so outlandish that it leaves them behind. McGhee traces actions to their logical conclusions, sometimes with humorous effects. . . . The strength of Happiness Ltd. is in McGhee s clear prose and the depth of this dystopian future. Seeing how various characters navigate the world is fascinating and allows readers to explore with them. . . . [It is] a frightening wakeup call to an American society that could easily move in that direction. --Melanie J. Cordova, Santa Fe Writers Project Journal, June 23, 2014

Product Description

Happiness Ltd. is a darkly comic thriller with a chilling vision of our consumer culture’s future. The world’s biggest corporations have united to form the first global nation, promising a new era of prosperity. Happiness Ltd. governs countries like a business: keeping its customers happy, squashing competition, and covering up bad news with a smile. But when star employee Nelson Young falls in love with Celia, a disenfranchised rebel, he becomes a liability. Nelson and Celia try to escape, but are charged with economic terrorism and put on trial for their lives.
