MY FAVORITE BOOK OF 2019Do you know why it s called the net Because we re caught in it That s a paraphrase of a uote from ualityland the best book I ve read this year It s one of my all time favorites and while relationships with books change over time just like relationships with people do I think this one s going to last my lifetime It s a remarkable dystopian satire and I love it so much that upon finishing it I immediately turned back to page one and read it a second time For days after that no other book would do I ve never had a hard time reviewing but I ve struggled for almost two weeks to review it this is around version 120 because I have so much to say and no matter what I write it seems inadeuate This book is phenomenal extraordinary fantastic every superlative which is apt because in ualityland only superlatives are permitted in reviewsThis is a world in which tech reigns the news is delivered tailored for each person available with and without special offers people are sorted into levels and their rank can go up or down algorithms are infallible In ualityland for the first time an android is running for president his opponent is a wealthy reality star And everything you get comes from TheShop All of it There s no ordering because TheShop s algorithms already know what you want You pay with a kiss to your ualitypad and upon delivery the drone automatically takes unboxing video because people love them You have to rate the drone and off it goes ualityland has been compared to Vonnegut Kling s favorite author and to Douglas Adams by the publisher Asimov laid the Foundation for it and it brings to mind Arthur C Clarke Inside its pages you ll encounter Isaac Asimov as well as Alan Turing Bertrand Russell and The German Code along with Jennifer Aniston and Beetlejuice Of course there s Echoes of Bezos Gates Tim Apple I meant to type that Zuckerberg you get the idea It stands with 1984 and Brave New World but Kling lets us know precisely how far in the future it takes place It also brought to my inferior human mind among others The Wizard of Oz and Monty Python While reading it Always Look on the Bright Side of Life would pop into my head it s that kind of satire too and that s mandatory for some in ualityland There s a plot very memorable characters the most memorable ever interrupted every so often by fake news with embedded advertising or are they adverts with embedded fake news Kling uses sly ways of stopping the action to slip in exposition so his characters aren t burdened with it a smart and entertaining choiceAnd there s a pink vibrator shaped like a dolphin The pink vibrator shaped like a dolphin has been delivered by TheShop to Peter You don t order from The Shop their algorithms know what you want and send it to you automatically by drone And TheShop s algorithms are never wrong But Peter doesn t want the pink dolphin vibrator and hilarity ensues as he attempts first to get customer service you ll love it then get some publicity and ultimately comes the uest on which he s accompanied by a terrific ragtag group as he attempts to track down the man who runs TheShop Henryk EngineerThere s also the upcoming election in which a very wealthy reality star is running against the first android to run for president And via the son of the wealthy reality star we get a glimpse into a marriage and home life in the upper levels Everyone in those ranks has the standard nanny robot who every night automatically compiles a highlight reel of the children s day for parents to watchThere s a sex android with
