In the future, people are wired with essentially the internet hooked up to their brain and vision. Advertising and consumerism, however, is king. You are judged on the possessions you have. For Titus, his entire world changed once he met Violet.
The book starts out with Titus and his friends partying during spring break on the Moon. Once a hacker breaks into the "system" and causes everyone's "feeds" to disrupt, they all end up in the hospital. But during this night, Titus meets Violet, a rebel who doesn't have a feed and doesn't believe in consumerism. As their relationship grows, Titus begins to see the beauty in this way of life after learning more about Violet and her condition.
What starts off as well-written young adult, sci-fi novel morphs into a heartbreaking story about what it means to live - people or possessions. I don't really want to give away too much here but needless to say this book shouldn't be missed.
I love to read and to discuss books. My preferred genre is sci-fi but I like to read mostly anything.
