review Zed author Joanna Kavenna Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Joanna Kavenna » 3 free read Beetle's technotopia and life as we know it Dazzlingly original and darkly comic Zed asks profound uestions about who we are what we owe to one another and what makes us human It describes our moment the ugliness and the beauty perfectly Kavenna is a prophet who has seen deeply into the present and thrown back her head and laugh. It started well a great concept and very witty I want to know what the ending is but I just don t want to read it any It seems to be going nowhere slowly

summary Zed author Joanna Kavenna

review Zed author Joanna Kavenna Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Joanna Kavenna » 3 free read From the winner of the Orange Award for New Writing comes a blistering satirical novel about life under a global media and tech corporation that knows exactly what we think what we want and what we do before we do One corporation has made a perfect world based on a perfect algorithm now what to do with all these messy people Lio. Dammit Tricked by cover porn Look at that cover it is gorgeous It has a very intriguing premise but was let down by the execution It reads like an early draft A few rounds of revising and editing could elevate this story into a masterpiece I did read an early copy so hopefully some of the issues I had with it were resolved before releaseIt is a satirical look at determinism vs free will in the digital age and tech giants profiting from the subjection of humanity In the not too distant future societies are surreptitiously controlled by a monopoly of tech giants whose tech and AI are based on the theory humans have free will but they are predictable It is a precursor to an Orwellian society as people still have a choice to opt into the Predictive Lifechain but if they don t they are manipulated or coerced into it or shunned by society as there is no data to verify they are a trustworthy citizen Beetle is the largest and most influential of these mega corps and its tech is deeply ingrained in society Guy Matthias a philanthropist and CEO of Beetle is an odious vile man who publicly believes the use of his deterministic AI platform to control the population creates a safe and stable utopia However privately it is a tool for him to avoid responsibility and accountability for his and the company s actions further his political agendas and petty vendettas against anyone who disagrees with him and mine for successful hookupsThis one was a struggle to finish Initially the balance between the world building and plot was off with paragraphs of info dumps unexpectedly popping up While the plot improved and was interesting there are too many ideas crammed in and it becomes a muddled incoherent mess and that is before it introduces the Bespoke Beetlespeak language Often it felt like it was written by a robot with the info dumps being contrary and contradictory for example These tiny things are called ubits If it helps then think of them as imaginary spheres If it doesn t help then don t A ubit is not what we imagine and yet it is It is anything we would like and yet all things at the same time This makes it an improbably flexible basis for computingNothing you are told is real Remember this until we tell you that something you are being told is real Actually the thing we are telling you that nothing you are told is real is actually real That thing is real about nothing being real Just that thing though and nothing else Is that clear Ended up skim reading the last few chapters It was like the author didn t know how to wrap up the story after the climaxThank you to Netgalley and the publishers for the ARC

    EBOOK / PDF [Zed author Joanna Kavenna] Joanna Kavenna is becoming one of my favourite writers her four previous novels Inglorious The Birth of Love Come to the Edge and A Field Guide to Reality are all intelligent and interesting in different ways and her writing is often very funny I must admit that I was a little nervous when I heard that her latest book was a dystopian fiction set in the near future as this genre is not normally one that appeals to me as a reader W
