The story could also be read as a cautionary tale about our relationship with mobile phones and social media that is supposedly eroding IRL interaction and enslaving us to our digital feed (called Crawl in the book). Personally I don't find that angle interesting.
Levesque presents us with his concept for a new world with what feels as new, futuristic, and far-fetched. But it brings insight through a simple question: is it much different than what we experience today? For instance, the way humans are “looped” into a future version of social media and the way they escape dreary reality through the fluff of false dreams—is it any different than the way many of us waste away in social media or binge on streaming TV? Is the way people enslave themselves in exchange for payment units that translate into sleep any different than the way we mortgage and second-mortgage our lives?
If you want to enjoy the sort of SciFi that makes you think rather than just dazzle you, this is a must read.
