In the not-too-distant future, the world is run by gargantuan tech companies and their algorithms, which determine every part of one’s life. Sadly, the new techno-capitalist regime is a disaster for almost anyone who isn’t unbelievably rich and famous. This is a biting and darkly hilarious dystopian satire, mingling elements reminiscent of Orwell, Vonnegut, Idiocracy and Black Mirror. Highly recommended.
