Publisher Description

For Titus and his friends, it started out like any ordinary trip to the moon - a chance to party during spring break and play with some stupid low-grav at the Ricochet Lounge. But that was before the crazy hacker caused all their feeds to malfunction, sending them to the hospital to lie around with nothing inside their heads for days. And it was before Titus met Violet, a beautiful, brainy teenage girl who has decided to fight the feed and its omnipresent ability to categorize human thoughts and desires. Following in the footsteps of George Orwell, Anthony Burgess, and Kurt Vonnegut Jr., M. T. Anderson has created a not-so-brave new world — and a smart, savage satire that has captivated readers with its view of an imagined future that veers unnervingly close to the here and now.

Diana Hudson ,

It was pretty good. I enjoyed it.

From the point of view of a 16 year old boy in an age where there are computers in your brain that act as everything in the body. The diction and presentation were perfect as we are literally in Tidus's mind reading his thoughts and experiences. Although, The ending was abrupt and felt like it could've gone one more step forward. I wish the author wouldve slowed down and written out much of the second half of the book. Overall, I really enjoyed the novel in its entirety.

Book worming ,


As I student, this was required reading for my gifted English class. I love to read and was disappointed and frustrated. Overall, the book left no lasting impression. The characters, besides Violet, were stereotypical and insignificant. While I understand that that adds to the message of the book, the insignificance was poorly written. There was little character development in Titus. I felt like I was reading a book written by a twelve year old. One of my least favorite books that I've read.

Mixed feelings??

Not going to lie, I hated this book the first few chapters. It took a long time to get used to the authors slang and way he wrote. But this book draws you in. It's very climactic and leaves you with things that you want to read about to learn more about the characters lives and events. Very disappointed in the ending because I would have like to know what happened after. I would definitely buy the sequel to this book if it ever is written though. Worth the buy If you can stick with the authors writing style.
