Serise delivers another gem,
This review is from: The Space Merchants (S.F. MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
This book is amazing. It is a keen satire on the rise of advertising and rampant consumerism, writen nearly 50 years ago.
Fair enough, the ending is slightly limp but the whole story and the vivid characterisation, (lovely use of the unsympathetic protagonist), all add up to a really fantastic read. It isn't boring, I could have finished it the day I started if I hadn't been doing anything else.
If you like astute well writen intellegent and exciting fiction (science fiction or otherwise) you'll like this.
