This book was a Goodreads giveaway I received in the mail.

The plot of this book surveys the influence of corporations and the power they wield over individuals. The protagonist, Charles Thatcher, questions the shape of his environs and grapples with understanding why things are the way they are, how they came to be and how to cope/change the current course of his environs.

I found the world Charles found himself in to be one that is psychologically chilling. The premise of a world constructed and ruled by a controlling corporation that continually creates illusions for all classes of people didn't seem too far fetched.

I struggled with the ending... I can only hope there is more to this story from Mr. Soutter.
