Iwon this novel in a goodreads drawing.

Pedestrian 1984 type of dystopia novel. A sort of high tech dark ages that occurs when the republican party collapses and the county is ruled by corporations.

Nothing we haven't seen before, and not very well done, at that.

The dystopian debut novel of the noted researcher-historian Faren Siminoff, The Transformation: GTE 45, is set in the Corporate States of America (the CSA), 45 years from the present moment (with the GTE in the title standing for the “Great Transformation Era”). A rigid class system prevails, in terms of which everyone is allocated to a certain tier of society, dependent upon their material output.

I read this book with both a bit of fear and fascination. Much like Jonathan Swift's A Modest Proposal I fear that some people might take this book seriously. The book is in some ways a terrifying read, especially after the recent US election and the aftermath that we are still witnessing. Set in the rebranded Corporate States of America, where people are classified and are wither contributors or takers. Takers live in walled ghetto's. The 'we' class strive and struggle every day just to stay af ...more

I won this novel as a Goodreads Giveaway.

Suffering from an apparently chronic case of Trump Fatigue Syndrome, I had some trepidation at the thought of starting a dystopian novel that posits a future where the most wrong-headed right wing philosophies in the American psyche have completely routed small-l liberalism. The Ayn Randian bureaucracy wed to a Darwinian Prosperity Gospel as presented in The Transformation: GTE 45 did nothing to alleviate my angst at the current state of affairs in the U.
