The satire in this book is so strong and the meandering short snippets meant that I could only digest it in small doses. BUT what commentary. Every bit of it, awesome. My favourite part? When the google bus people actually bring a character's delusions to life. That, and the idea that all social media company execs are modern day gods and we should exemplify them as the Greeks did with their own mythology. The commentary like that the West thinks we brought spring to Northern Africa in Arab spring, people of colour, women's rights, using machine built by slaves to promote free speech. All of it truth, some of it hurtful truth, and sometimes hilariously so.

If you enjoy literary fiction with a strong satirical edge, give this a try! Its tongue-in-cheek "explanations" of everything from Buzzfeed to identity politics are often hilarious, and the comics-within-a-book are really interesting.

Fantastic novel-length rant on everything that is destroying decency in our world. Hilarious and anger-producing at the same time.
