    This book is one big question mark for me.I still don t have a single clue about what was going on This book has a dystopian futuristic sound to it And there was lots of potential to spin a fantastic story But it lacks characterisation, fun, suspense, explanations and most of all a plot I have so many questions and none of them got answered throughout the nov

    Read it and weep Blythe Woolston s MARTians hurts to read because though it s labelled dystopian futuristic, it seems scarily contemporary.Zo s mother abandons her, and her school closes down She finds work in AllMART and shelter in a laundromat But it s clear she s living day by day, and doesn t really have a future There s never a chance to make money becaus

    2 stars Will appeal to younger readers who enjoy light dystopian fiction, but may feel a bit undeveloped toexperienced readers I think that the author was trying to hold up a mirror to readers so that we think about how influenced we are by consumer culture, but beyond that barely cautionary tale this book didn t have much sustenance.This book takes place in a

    clever a dystopian society without an enemy.The plot moves quickly you realize very quickly that something is VERY wrong with this world But it doesn t appear to be any sort of apocalypse Just the continuation of where we might really be headed right now if things don t change As each day unfolds, it gets creepier and scarier, even though there are no real monsters

    A brilliant and bleak depiction of consumerism take to its extreme so not a whole lot further than we currently know it If you like M.T Anderson s Feed which you definitely need to read , then you ll enjoy this too It also reminded me a bit of Brave New World where at times you feel like you re being given a tour of the world that is only slightly different from the

    Another teen dystopia in a world not so far in the future where the populace are brainwashed into consumerism hmm, not unlike today Hopefully our schools aren t that bad yet, and at least the powerful shopping consortiums don t actually control the airwaves again, I say that hopefully.This is, in equal parts, bizarre and heart rending Our heroine is left on her own mo
