Given the times, I knew I was taking a huge chance with a corporate American dystopia, especially one that both pays homage to the great dystopias of recent past and raises present day issues, so I’m delighted that so many readers have been able to understand and appreciate my intentions for writing it. Here are some of the latest:
“This book can stand with the Classics.” (5 stars) –Marilyn
“This book for me was enjoyable to read even if it didn't have a happy ending.” (4 stars) –Andrew F.
“This is a thought-provoking and quite frightening book.” (4.5 stars) –Kat
“Frighteningly wonderful. It freaked me the hell out and I hope that our society never becomes like it. Good job!” (5 stars) –Jesse
“Amazingly good a great view of the future bogged down in corporate redtape and micromanaged lifestyles. Great characters in a gloomy and realistic world.” (5 stars) –Mike
“A chilling vision of the future which is all too believable. The logical, if frightening, conclusion to corporatism, environmental destruction, and the 1% left unchecked. Ms. Lane's writing flows effortlessly, I read this straight through and could not put it down.” (5 stars) –Nick S.
“Would go nicely on a shelf with 1984 and Fahrenheit 451. I highly recommend this one.” (5 stars) –T. Zelazny
“A very good read. I thank the author tremendously and look forward to reading more from her.” (5 stars) –Andrea
World-Mart also recently placed in the top ten finishers in this year’s Predators and Editors Readers’ Poll. Here are the voter comments:
“Ms. Lane hit the nail on the head in terms of what a sci-fi book needs to be in today's literary world. Bravo!”
“It's the best book on the list. Mrs. Lane is so talented!”
“One of my favorite authors. I'm a fanatic for her writing.”
“World-Mart was an awesome book!”
“Loved this book. Dystopia at its finest!”
