    I won this book from a giveaway with Goodreads This book was an interesting read The book s setting is in 2048 obviously lol , so the author introduces you to a world where we re all distracted by entertainment and instead of having your phone in your hand, your entertainment is a chip implanted in your cerebral cortex Vera is the main character and you go on a journey of her attempting to unravel the truth of the society that she lives in I honestly thought this book was a little too ...

    I received this book from Goodreads giveaways This book had an interesting premise, and the storyline was pretty good A few things I would change would be the title of the book because I almost didn t read it even though it was free due to the cheesy title alone , better editing, and a section of the middle of the book that was so boring it put me to sleep everytime I tried to read it One of the characters even kept commenting about how boring it was The information was mostly necessary to the storyline, but it could have been presented in a much easier to digest fashion Luckily, ...

    A vivid picture of a dystopian society, which seems an entirely plausible future as a result of social media ever increasing rule our daily lives and how we form our biases and opinions Derek Cressman has written a wake up call concerning where we are headed By using familiar references to pop culture and technologies that are already becoming ubiquitous, he has managed to stitch together a vision of a primarily passive and accepting culture A society which is mostly ignorant of history involved only in the theatre of politics rather than the substance.The story centers around Vera, who today we might call a fact checker, who works for an agency that reduces information which while factually accurate is distilled by her higher ups into small digestible bits Pretty much like the headlines of today that can be very misleadin...
