The future always seemed bright, but it turns out that was just global warming. Meals don’t come in pills, shoes don’t lace themselves, and there are flying cars, but the gas mileage sucks. There is one difference. People have always searched the internet for answers. Now they actually worship it.

Shelves: sci-fi, satire, 2016-shelf
I'm really impressed!

It seems to be a mostly tight novel that's spoofing internet culture, at least on the surface, and humorously so, but the core of it is really a character-driven roadtrip tale with witty dialogue and some very messed up memes peppering the text with panache.

And serial kidnappings.

And camping with trolls. (The internet kind. Not the fantasy kind.)

And murder.

The tragedy portions don't overwhelm the story. They happen to be more of a backdrop for rather complicated character

Starting this book, I was very confused. Mostly by the language/writing. Interface takes place in the future and technology is a lot more advanced. And all that fictional technology confused me at the start. But I quickly got used to it and was able to enjoy the story a bit more.
I didn't realise Interface was sort of a satire but I liked that part of the book. It kind of made fun of technology and how ridiculous it can become. So ridiculous that people actually worship it.

Interface is a dystopian farce that pokes funs of Internet culture as well as our obsession with technology and social media. It's fun and light. There's almost a YA quality to it, only with more furry porn jokes. Nothing graphic or heavy, a hint of romance but so light that I'm as uncertain about it as I was in my teens.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. She didn't say it was in exchange for an honest review, but it would totally be a dick move not to review it. Thank

Brad summed it up nicely here and yes, I'm also impressed.

This is pure satire. The scifi kind. With bubbling and glittering dialogues in today's language. I'm not exactly sure, this book qualifies as YA but I'd recommend it for people of all age groups, who love their social scifi complete with sparkling and the latest inPhone.

This is a simple story about a group of people that come together (one not voluntary) to accomplish a goal. The plot to this tale is a simple one. Even how certain, yet dangerous situations and events are overcome are solved in simple manners. This is more of a character driven story. It literally makes fun of how much society is attached to their electronic devices and the need for social media acceptance. In the story it has even become a new religion that has actually replaced god or any form ...more

Very humorous and I look forward to book two in the series.

I’m not overly sure what I actually thought of this book. I think it tried a little too hard and to be honest I really did not like much of any of the characters. Mostly fun though.

Jun 24, 2017 rated it really liked it
This book had some quirks, though somewhere in the last 30% of it I started to really enjoy it. The ending was a little abrupt, it felt more like the end of a chapter than the end of a premier novel. My main criticism at the beginning would have been the over-reliance on replacing product names with slightly different product names, or updating expressions with more tech-themed ones. As an example, a SmartBoard becomes a WiseBoard and instead of a mental image the expression becomes 'mental imag ...more

The plot of this was okay, but it's the premise and the language that really made this worthwhile for me. The language especially, the author has a fantastic way with words and just lots of little jokes and references in the prose. Plus gender neutral phrasing <3<3<3

This novel is chock-full of witty humor, lighthearted banter between characters, sassy revelations and a very tough and straightforward female lead who doesn't take anyone's s***. It was a very quick and easy read, perfect when you need something to lighten up an otherwise gloomy day! Lucy has done a fantastic job of intertwining her characters while still playing with enough mystery and mischief to keep you entertained. The language felt a bit repetitive at times, but it fit well with the conte ...more
