Enjoyable fast paced novel,
This review is from: The Future Perfect (Liked by fans of Vonnegut, Adams, Huxley, Asimov and Atwood) (Kindle Edition)
I thought this was an enjoyable read. There seems to be all sorts of influences, not just Vonnegut, Adams and Huxley, but also more than a bit of Arthur c Clarke and Margaret Atwood. It bundles all these influences together into a classic piece of predictive science fiction.
It follows human civilisation effectively being taken over by marketing executives, and how the last rational individuals are sucked into the second by second whirlwind of appeasing public opinion. In the meantime, human society falls to pieces.
There are more than occasional hints of global warming/ genetic engineering/ data gathering doom mongering. It's done in a silly and light hearted way, so it gets you thinking without feeling too heavy handed or getting in the way of the narrative.
