I IISTENED WITH ONLY HALF MY MIND
I am a big fan of Pohl and would give him five stars for several books, including Gateway, The Space Merchants, Starbust, Jem, The Voice of Heaven, etc. This book was very slow and hard to get in to. The narrator was no help. This follows in line with his idea of large corporations taking over the world. In the case it is insurance companies. I like how he explains how people can be brainwashed from birth. The company tells them they have eradicated war, yet there are wars, they have eradicated disease, yet the main character's wife dies of disease and still he believes in the company. We can see examples of this in today's world and perhaps it was going on in Pohl's time. If this opens anybody's eyes that is great, but as a story it was just to boring. Get Space Merchants, it is a similar theme and is entertaining.
