Life doesn't pick winners and losers. That's for the corporations to decide. And they picked Liam Argyle for a carefree life of fame and fortune as host of the world's most popular reality show competition. Unfortunately, Liam doesn't do carefree. After two seasons of parading about the world's biggest victims on "The Grass is Greener," he's been forced to put a happy face ...more

I didn't read the first in this series, but I don't think it hindered my understanding or enjoyment of this one. A game show host grows conscious of his role in the corporate dystopia and vows to bring revolution. The conceit of the book is in the voice and asides (formatted as footnotes, often etymological), and those elevated the story past the lack of a b-plot for me.

I loved the idea of seizing the means of production in this environment. We often forget that artists and creatives are the las

Always Greener, the first book of this series, left off at the end of season one of ‘The Grass is Greener’, a reality show that soon became a worldwide hit with over four billion viewers.

The first book in this series haunted me, but it took a bit for me to get hooked. This book was very similar in a slow start for me that ramped up into becoming more and more interesting. So, if you start it and feel your mind wandering : stick with it!

It is 2074 and the corporations are in control. Everyone is connected through their AR glasses which provide Information and entertainment 24/7. It is the third season of The Grass is Greener, the highly rated reality show in which the winner (the person who is deemed to have the most pitiful life) is sent to Paradise Mars where the corporate oligarchs reside. Liam Argyle, host of GiG, can no longer ignore his conscience and so sets out to start a small rebellion.
Like Always Greener, Rude Eye Is
