I said it once before: "meet "80s memes the dystopian scifi book"
I really wanted to like it, but not because it's an actually good book (in fact the writing could be better and the story isn't surprising at all - after the introduction of the characters, everybody will know how that book is ending), but because it's a well optimized meme collection with exactly the story elements that tend to sell well.
No, the dystopian megacorp doesn't win against the highly enthusiastic teenager.
Also that Girl he's crazy about, who doesn't want him because of the central conflict? Yeah, you know what'll hapen after the conflict is going to be resolved.
There's not even remotely relevant side-characters dying - at least nobody anyone would care about.
So... is this a bad book? No, it's a highly entertaining one. But not great literature.
