about

In Vancouver in 2036, people are tired of the rain. They're willing to give up a lot for guaranteed sunshine, a life with no wasted hours. A life free of crime and disease. A life that ends when you want it to, not when some faceless entity decides it's your time. Those who don't buy in ? the poor, the old, the paranoid ? have to watch as their loved ones, their friends, and their jobs leave the city. They have to watch as the latest prestige technology, Self, changes everything ? not just the world but humanity itself. On the bright side, the rents have dropped. And in several unexpected ways, resistance is growing. This fascinating work of fiction tells what can happen when the cyberworld becomes more important than the real world.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good This is the third, and hopefully not the last book that I've read by Munroe. I had to read the first page almost 6 times before I could really pay attention long enough to understand what the heck he was talking about, but once you do...it's worth it. His imagination and insight into our over commercialized and advertised future will keep you turning pages. While I'm still of the belief that Flyboy Action Figure was still his best work to date, I would (and have) highly recommend this book. If you can get past the first couple pages and the way he publicised this book (by embarassing, lower and middle class, big business franchise employees) then this book is definitely worth the purchase.
