    Review quote
    "An oddly heartfelt journey through the wasteland of a techno-collapse. Gladstone takes an admittedly far-fetched and off-putting story idea and breathes startling life into it. He gambles here, but he wins. Give it a read." --Patton Oswalt "This is satire in its purest form: an exaggerated, filthy and ridiculous world - which happens to be exactly the world we live in. Gladstone has conceived and successfully executed a clever thought experiment that illustrates just how crazy the Internet has made all of us. Witty, profane and entertaining." --Charles Yu, author of "How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe ""Wayne Gladstone's satire is a high-concept page-turner brimming with LOL-worthy one-liners and observations about the web-addicted zombies we've become and the price we've paid for our sins. The best way to sum up the reading experience would be an emoticon that has yet to be invented." --Teddy Wayne, author of "The Love Song of Jonny Valentine ""Gladstone's novel makes it clear that losing the Internet would indeed be apocalyptic, but it would also be funny, thrilling, and would perhaps be necessary to remind us of who we really are."--John Warner, Editor-at-Large of McSweeney's Internet Tendency and author of "The Funny Man ""A story whose humor is matched by its insight into technology's effect on our relationships. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll beg your Internet provider to never leave you." --Frank Lesser, writer for "The Colbert Report" and author of "Sad Monsters" "An amusing but thoughtful look at what might happen to our culture if the World Wide Web went down for good." --FantasyLiterature.com "An acid cultural satire that skewers what we would miss most about the online world." --"Kirkus Reviews ""The punchlines are pitch-perfect. Anyone who spends time sharing jokes in web communities will find this satire irresistible." --"Booklist ""If someone's going to slap down the Interne
