I read this for a book group. It's been on my TBR list for a while. I loved it. It's a bit of a critique on modern capitalist consumerism. In a world in which people are identified by the firm they work for and the police and NRA can be bought and sold, economic competition can end in bloodshed. Though the cover tag compares the book to Catch-22, I'd say more Christopher Moore and Jasper Fforde mixed in with Philip K. Dick. Entertaining.
