Read in August, 2011

A rather gritty book, in a way that I really liked. It's an interesting take on a near-future capitalist society with most of the problems we have now, where among other things, global environmental solutions have been found but these widen the rich-vs-poor gap. It doesn't try to take on too much worldbuilding at once because it is character-based, but what it does show is reasonably convincing. I would not even read the back of the book or the online summary here before jumping in, if I were you.
