Description

Uplifting, unputdownable and mordantly funny, Everything You Ever Wanted is the dystopian beach read you didn't know you needed. Then, one day Iris hears about a new reality TV programme, Life on Nyx, a chance to start again on a new planet with no social media, no work pressures and no anxieties over your appearance.

Michael Pollan, known for his best-selling nonfiction audio, including The Omnivores Dilemma and How to Change Your Mind, conceived and wrote Caffeine: How Caffeine Created the Modern World as an Audible Original. When Billy can’t find the informant, he wonders if Kate is secretly harboring her, since the two grew close during Kate's weeks undercover.Each of the family members in this story had secrets, and hidden upset that kept them from connecting to one another. It doesn’t waste pointless energy explaining where Nyx is, who Norman is, where the wormhole came from, how the journey to Nyx works. Filled with sharp observations about the way in which we live now, Everything You Ever Wanted is both an acute satire of our social-media dominated times, and a haunting examination of depression and anxiety rendered in diamond sharp prose with barely a wasted word. Being with your partner may feel like rainbows and unicorns, but that doesn't mean you have a healthy, functioning relationship.

Within Iris' criticisms of modern society, she comments a lot on how relationships nowadays are so fake and lacking genuine empathy; purely existing for convenience, which I believe the author echoed within the dull exchanges Iris has with all the subcharacters in the novel. Uplifting, unputdownable and mordantly funny, Everything You Ever Wanted is the dystopian beach read you didn’t know you needed.Rather than grand, epic, sweeping futurism, we have here an intimate tale of one woman’s yearning for both an escape from the drudgery of our cyclical life (work, home, sleep, work) and a way to feel like she was part of something important, both personally and professionally.
