A fascinating, hilarious and terrifying speculative fiction that kept me hooked till the last page. It's one of those book you can love or hate and I loved it.
It's full of ideas, voices, descriptions and sometimes the abundance of ideas and voices made me dizzy but it was also a reflection of the current information overload.
Shelby and Lonny are great characters. Each of them represents an approach to the net culture, one will win and the other will lose.
The story is set in an unnamed city dominated by tech giant, it could be anywhere because there's no place on the Earth where tech giant cannot reach.
It was a fascinating, entertaining and thought provoking read, highly recommended.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine
