I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
So this was an interesting book. I’m not quite sure I “got” it. I’m American and I felt like I would have understood and appreciated the political side of it better if I was from Europe. I’m just not that familiar with how everything works over there.
The book does raise some fascinating ideas about the future, especially the intersection of politics and technology (“Tinder-politics”). I enjoyed that exploration.
I did like the parts that didn’t have to do with politics such as his nightmare of a journey to the conference. That was loads of fun to read. I also liked the parts about his ex Janine.
The one big issue I had was that I found the ending to be too rushed. Everting just ended super quickly. I would have liked to seen it drawn out more. As a whole, I felt like the book could have been at least 50 pages longer. That way the whole thing could have been developed a bit more. The book seemed to end just when things were really getting interesting.
Overall, this was a promising debut novel and I am eager to see what else this author publishes in the future. He certainly has a very creative and innovative mind!
