Rate Me Red
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Gordy has a problem. His girlfriend, Poppy Nicole, wants to meet him in REALITY.
It’s the year 2043 and Twitter, Facebook, You Tube, reality television and Ebay have all merged into the VidNet. Everyone and anyone can have a VidNet show, but it’s the people who are rated, not the shows, on a scale from Purple to Red.
Poppy just knows that if she and Gordy meet in REALITY, and better yet, have sex in REALITY, on her show, it’s sure to boost her rating. But the prospect makes Gordy so nervous he fails to heed the warning signs of a worldwide economic collapse (caused by a bubble in imaginary toothpaste sales). Will Gordy be able to save VidNet Society? More importantly, will he and Poppy have sex in REALITY? The answers lie in Rate Me Red.
Part Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and part Gulliver’s Travels, Rate Me Red is a hilarious comic adventure, a sharp social satire and a love story that takes place in the near future in a consumer-mad world not that different from our own.
Very Funny, Very Smart
This is a science fiction book, but it's really a social satire about superficial relationships in the the era of the internet, artificial lifestyles, artificial intelligence, plus it has a worldwide economic collapse brought about by a very human robotic toothbrush. It's very funny - especially the Rejectionists, a society of nonconformists who reject digital music among other things, but argue about whether CD's are acceptable or should they only listen to vinyl.
