Gripping and sad

I loved this audiobook! The concept of a feed of advertisements constantly running in one's brain is both terrifying and relatable. The futuristic society that Anderson paints is completely believable- although there are some drastic changes such as companies owning just about everything, many changes are subtle enough to be expected over such a long period of time. The slang, for example, draws upon already existing words and phrases which represent very natural semantic shifting. I have to admit that the story was not what I expected, but it was excellent nonetheless! I bet almost anyone can relate in some way to Titus and Violet. The best part of this audiobook was the use of special effects to demonstrate how the feed feels and sounds- it's like your'e a part of the story itself. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone new to audiobooks!
