This is a story about a dysfunctional and corrupt society that we can see signs of in our own society. The story is a bit heavy handed and reminds me of Kafka or Vonnegut. This is not a story I would normally read. I bought this book because the author is in my list of 50 OK authors I watch. Please read the Author's Note at the end of the book to see where the author is coming from. It really puts the story in perspective.
I give the story itself at least 4 stars and 6 stars for social conscience so overall 5 stars.
I wonder if the sequels will have a message too?
