This is a fun little novel about the near future where marketing rules the world. It is a parody on today’s attention economics and big corporations dictating the rules.
The main character is a bum by the standards of Qualityland, he doesn’t have a good job or a girlfriend, but he has a secret in his basement.
At times it was too weird or too whacky. The ending is anticlimactic; it seems like the author ran out of time and needed to finish the book quickly.
That being said, it’s a good comedy book, and I laughed out loud while listening to it.
