This book will scare the heck out of you. It will make you want to delete your facebook account. And I don’t say this as a luddite—I have a smartphone, though I mostly use it to take pictures of puppies—but as someone who was genuinely shaken by this book’s eerily prescient description of technology literally taking over human bodies. There is so much to talk about in this book—our roles as consumers, the inescapability of the internet, and how technology alters our lives and what it forces us to give up. Harsh but not gloomy, with crackling dialogue and subtle, precise world-building.
