A near-future tale of omni-connected technology and the corporate-erasure of privacy, set both before and after a never-fully-explained act of cyber-terrorism brings down the whole system.

At times I approached reading it as less of a novel and more

“I barely even know how I didn't feel. I didn't feel like reading a newspaper, or having a coffee, or going for a jog, or watching television. Nor did I feel like crying behind the boiler in the basement. Or like trying out for something. I did't even feel like I had lost someone I deeply loved; this was different from that. I didn't feel like going to another movie and asking for extra butter on my popcorn. I didn't feel like talking to someone who would understand.”

On the contrary, it grew on into eternity, so that no one was alone in death. Someone else would always follow. That was what counted. Such was the chain of life: unbreakable. But”
Carsten Jensen, We, the Drowned
