really liked it

What Ray Bradbury, in "Fahrenheit 451", did with an overarching government watchdog; what movies like "The Net" and "Surrogates" did with identity and virtual self-actualization, author Charles O'Donnell has brought in a new twist to the dystopian genre by extrapolating the IoT into everything from our dish-ware to our underwear in Shredded: A Dystopian Novel. All we touch, collects data and is fed back to the "All Seeing Eye" that is in total control. Or so it seems. When unscrupulous factions use that data to "weave" together a virtual reality lifestream of a recovering addict, Grace, we're thrown into a thrill ride that has Grace just a few steps ahead of government agents while she is frantically seeking out a "shredder" who can erase her life from the Worldstream and protect the person she cares about the most from her sordid past.
Definitely a fast paced thrill ride and I look forward to the author’s next venture for this character.
