Things are different now a days. Secrets must be kept. Why? From who? Hard to say. We are a demand driven nation. How much would life change If demand for things you never gave a second thought too changed. Perhaps there is a way to enhance your desire to shop. Why stop at that? Who knows the limits. Things are happening out there. Secretly. There are two opposing forces. The corporation in control of this technology will fight for what they believe in(or desire).
Right vs wrong. Good vs evil. Chase scenes beyond imagination. Humor. Incredible characters. This is a fun read!
The Urban Legion is a satire that covers a wide range of topics. It could substitute as a conspiracy theory manifesto, a critique of our consumer society, or a psychological study of a sociopathic corporate executive. There are facets aplenty, and the fight between humanism and commercialism could not have found a better battleground than a shopping mall!
Food critic Lynn Grady finds herself caught up in the competition between a corporate cartel and an upstart hydroponic truffle producer, which blossoms to reveal that society's hidden underbelly is the scene of full-scale corporate warfare. Lynn finds allies and enemies along the way, drags her own organic grocer into the fight, and discovers that her teenage daughter is in danger of becoming a pawn of the evil corporate cartels. What mom wouldn't battle the evil empire to save her daughter?
This story is a bit of a conundrum. Are you allowed to hate the opening and love the book? The story certainly does engage; the consistent chuckles are punctuated with one or two hearty laughs, and this romp through modern society never removed its tongue from its cheek... I have to go with my gut on this one. My gut tells me that I enjoyed this book, and I should never again eat at a mall food court.
A nice light romp! Recommended.
