    Futuristic satire so sharp I'm probably now bleeding internally in a few places Novella length short would make a good YA classroom read super discussable And not 100% bleak More like 80 20

    Terrifying in how timely this is Aliens invaded Earth sure but it's really colonization than invasion They've brought technologies and automation They will help the economy Except that automation means fewer jobs which means higher unemployment and everything goes downhill accordingly This is why the realistic tag despite the aliensAdam is an artist He's struggling to support his family and be true to his own ideals Whether he's trying to hold a failing relationship together for the ratings or struggling with an embarrassing disease because his family can't afford the medical treatment Adam has a uniue perspective and voice It's a bleak portrait of the future but not a distant one a near future one where automation has put millions out of work where healthcare is only afforded to the super rich where teaching is replaced by one size fits all videos and the arts are utterly unsupported Publishing schedules being what they are this had to have been written before the Trump administration took hold and yet this is a harsh unflinching look at Trump's America Monetize everything; you're only worthwhile if you're wealthy; fuck the poor and sick I want this book everywhere

    MT Anderson is so clever This is a satirical sci fi that examines some of the worst aspects of our society I liked this but I definitely prefer his novel Feed over this one because that book BLEW my mind and left me shook for days whereas this was just a short clever lil book that would be fascinating to discuss with others but overall didn't shake me to the core like Feed did

    WoooooooooooooooooooooowFeed was the last MT Anderson book I read and that was probably over a decade ago Needless to say I was beyond thrilled when I saw that he had some new material coming out in the fall That said it can also be a bit nerve racking when an author has been out of your life for so long I mean I loved Feed and Anderson's writing style is one of my favorites but what if after so long it just didn't have the same effect? I mean I've changed he's probably changed so many variables Well I shouldn't have worried because Landscape with Invisible Hand definitely reminded my why I love Anderson's work so much This is a slim book just cresting over a 100 pages but my goodness does it pack a powerful punch The desolation and deterioration of not only Adam and Chloe's relationship but Earth as a whole and its inhabitants is heartbreaking and uite honestly an interesting commentary on our country's current state Additionally with such sparse language Anderson does an exceptional job of not only captivating his reader but he's also able to do so in a weirdly brutal and beautiful way I think my favorite aspect of this book though is just how much discussion power it has for teens I can seriously picture them talking for hours over this book and for that as well as all of the other reasons I mentioned this is an absolute necessity in all YA library collections Seriously I'm probably going to re read it right now and maybe again after that Received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    Wonderful I really enjoy Mr Anderson's voice as well as the parallels he makes in his stories His books are raw and immersive throwing you in without preamble trusting you to figure out the world

    Review to come Didn't go where I was expecting Painted a very tangible feeling of lower class and of the medium class being thrown into that same hardship Interesting layout with each chapter having a title that matches a corresponding artwork created by the main character

    I got a copy of this signed for a friend who didn't like Feed I loved Feed so hoped that maybe he would like a different book by AndersonAfter reading to page 57 I skipped to the end and am asking forgiveness from my friend This was really uite badSettingWorld Takes place in the near future after benevolent if business minded not benevolent if they only want just my two cents aliens come to Earth with amazing tech That only the rich can have So far I'm seeing it Then it goes off the railsThe aliens decide no clean sources of drinking water for the poor masses They don't say WHY maybe to make money when the poor get sick from untreated water? Main MC has a nasty stomach bug due to dirty water Never thought to boil it really? So that's kinda weirdThen the statement that alien made food is cheaper than American grown Ok I can see that But then to say everyone was out of work so no money for food BUT cheaper to buy food than to grow your own?? Really?? Cuz if the parents had no job prospects they had a back and front yard GROW food for your family for crying out loud How is that expensive than spending money you don't have on food? I think this was supposed to be some sort of awesome social commentary that completely missed the mark for me Maybe my friend can explain it to me because I just didn't get it at ALL I hope he likes it I know I didn't 15 stars not sure which way to round since I really almost hated it but I did want to see what happened at the end and I liked the ending so up to two stars

    A story of a deeply twisted worst case scenario dystopian future Adam and his family are turned from a white collar comfortable society to scrapping for rice and beans This is an oddly uniue and particularly interesting novella

    Favorite passage and my vision for the librarian I want to be from the desperate narrator of this bleak and beautiful novel about his favorite teacherWe all have our visions of crazy successMr Reilly must have had his once too A kid my age named Dave Reilly He went to art school Maybe he still secretly nurses those private visions where he's discovered and suddenly he's the big shit I don't knowAnd now he's thrown everything all his talent all his energy into helping us paint and draw and sculpt and grow up Boys who are hiding secrets girls who can barely stand to see daylight he has devoted his life to listening to us and giving us a space to make our statementsThat I guess is why he is one of the few actual adults I know as opposed to people who are just old
