What's Inside

Read More Read Less


An enjoyable romp through an overwrought capitalist dystopia masquerading as a Utopia.
An amusing skewering of the logical consequences of the world's increasing efficiency and optimisation.
Nineteen Eighty-Four meets Vonnegutian slapstick in a free-wheeling satire spliced with black humour and some gloriously wicked social commentary.
Eric Brown, GUARDIAN
The best kind of satire, offering up a funhouse mirror version of our world that is so smart and so cutting, you have to laugh to keep from crying.
Rob Hart, author of THE WAREHOUSE
QUALITYLAND is very funny and very scary - my kind of book.
Mike Judge, creator of Silicon Valley and King of the Hill
This is spot-on satire.
As the carrier for a slew of satirical ideas about the state of our internet-enabled society, Marc-Uwe Kling's international bestseller is full of zing from first page to last... a dystopian comic yarn comparable to Black Mirror, Kurt Vonnegut or Philip K Dick
Dominic Maxwell, THE TIMES
This brave new world is revealed in a series of pin-sharp, unsettling and scathing vignettes... Brilliant satire and a great read that is currently in production as an HBO TV series.
Jamie Buxton, DAILY MAIL
How much you enjoy this is in direct proportion to how much trouble you think we're in. Sleep tight.
Satire reminiscent of Douglas Adams or Rob Grant
