Review of 'Walkaway: A Novel' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Reading this at the same time as Homo Deus by Yuval Harari puts an odd spin on the story, like binary stars in an eccentric orbit. Is it a techno-liberal fantasy, or a dataist rebellion? Maybe just let it provoke its own ideas and enjoy a ride with some different flavors of light and darkness. For someone who has walked away once or twice, it has a special appeal.

Review of 'Walkaway: A Novel' on Goodreads

4 stars

Enjoyable thriller from a premise of transitioning to post-scarcity, as another reviewer put it this is as much a philosophical dialog on the assumptions of capitalism as it is a novel. Love the acknowledgements at the end crediting inspiration from Solnit's A Paradise Built In Hell, Graeber's Debt: The First 5000 Years, and Piketty's Capital In The 21st Century.
