MARTians review Ú 103 free read µ eBook or Kindle ePUB ð Blythe Woolston Last girl Zoë Zindleman numerical ID 009 99 9999 has just been graduated Early Her options wait for her home to be foreclosed and stripped of anything valuable now that AnnaMom has moved away or move to the Warren an abandoned strip mall tu. 2 stars Will appeal to younger readers who enjoy light dystopian fiction but may feel a bit undeveloped to experienced readers I think that the author was trying to hold up a mirror to readers so that we think about how influenced we are by consumer culture but beyond that barely cautionary tale this book didn t have much sustenanceThis book takes place in a near future world where big corporate box stores cough Walmart cough essentially run every facet of society Schools are privatized and focused on raising students to be better consumers andor better retail workers Our protagonist Zoe lives in a nearly abandoned suburban neighborhood with her mother their house maintained in pristine condition as they re unsuccessfully attempting to sell it on a flooded real estate market The book begins with Zoe in school as an announcement is made that the school is closing and all of the students have graduated early Some are given job referrals some are carted off to other fates Zoe is given two job referrals and ends up working at AllMART one of the big box stores that controls everything Her mother inexplicably announces that she is moving with no explanation that I recall except to act as a plot device so Zoe has the house to herself She soon meets Timmer another AllMART employee who encourages her to ditch the suburban house to come live with him and and a couple other drifters in an old shopping mall So begins Zoe s new life as an AllMART employee working to sell sell sell to consumersI can t rate this book very highly because there just didn t seem to be much of a plot beyond the initial set up that I outlined above Zoe renamed Zero by the store in order to avoid duplicate name confusion among employees works at the store sees some less savory behind the scenes grit that seems tossed in there for mild shock value and that s about it There are some very minor side plots involving some of the other abandoned mall suatters but they don t really seem to serve a purpose I understand that the whole book is probably supposed to be a big cautionary tale about the direction that we re moving in as a greedy retail societybut there needs to be than that in a story There wasn t really a conflict or much character development No attempts to shake up this retail obsessed society or overthrow the AllMART dictators or even any attempts to flee to a free world Nothing We don t really see much beyond Zoe s dull existence so we don t know what the rest of the world is doing outside of AllMART view spoiler Toward the end there was a rushed poorly explained episode involving a baby and one of the other abandoned mall suatters named Juliette which evidently led to her arrest or something This caused Zoe Timmer and the rest to flee the abandoned mall for fear of being arrested themselves I suppose and drive off into the sunsetor to another abandoned building Again the ending was a bit rushed and I m still not really sure what was behind the reactions of most of the characters To make things confusing throughout the book were interjected news stories involving some kind of tuna scandal and some fires fires that possibly started with an act of arson on Zoe s part They never really make it clear These news stories apparently reached some kind of peak near the end of the bookbut again it didn t really seem to serve a purpose hide spoiler The Rockabye Contract readers who enjoy light dystopian fiction but may

A brilliant and bleak depiction of consumerism take to its extreme so not a whole lot further than we currently know itIf you like MT Anderson s Feed which you definitely need to read then you ll enjoy this too It also reminded me a bit of Brave New World where at times you feel like you re being given a tour of the world that is only slightly different from the one you knowA uote from it that sums up the ominous machine that is ALLMART when Zoe is contemplating making the customer happyWanting is only human Humans are only wants My purpose to see tiny seeds of wanting that I can magnify and satisfy The because I am human too I will want stuff The cycle is so beautiful I will belongCreeps me out makes me think
