The reviews of this book piqued my interest. Though not keen on action genre, and some readers commenting its similarity with Bourne Identity, I would love to hop in the action caravan and try this.

My take from the book "World Incorporated" is that sci-fi stories set in the future are relevant because they forecast the future, giving hints as to what the future my look like. Take the movie "I Robot" for example- today robots are fast being put to use. They have even been lunched into space!

I feel the characters should have been developed just a little more aside only Silver.

I gave it a 4 out 4 stars. Sliver's character was the most interesting to unravel. The other characters probably needed a little more depth, but I still think it is an excellent read.

The book's description makes it seem as though it might be an interesting read if very key things are kept in mind. I have just downloaded it and am starting to read it. Hopefully it will not let me down.

It is not a book I want to finish reading. The sample was good, but I feel like every novel now is dystopian and I am trying to stay away from those types of novels.

I really enjoyed this book because it stirred up a lot of feelings about the current political climate. In the same way that Margaret Atwood's novel, "The Handmaid's Tale" has become a reflective dystopia about what could very well happen here if we aren't cautious, I felt the same way about this book from an economic standpoint. Similar to what some other reviewers pointed out, I thought that the minor characters could've been fully developed more, but otherwise I rated this book extremely high and would definitely recommend it to friends who enjoy the genre.

The book "World, Incorporated" by Tom Gariffo is based on science and fiction. This book depicts the future. I really liked the book in the begnining but later this book started boring in the halfway.This book failed to meet the expectation that it created in the begining. I rate the book 3 out 4 because I was very much inspired and facinated by Silver's character

In the book World, incorporated I loved how well-detailed the action scenes were. Also the characters were well presented and so I would rate the book 4 out of 4 stars.

I indeed agree! An action-packed, futuristic, scIence-fiction story with a hinch of reality sounds like a great read! I think all of us should grab a copy and be aware of what’s to come! Based on its relevance I believe this one’s a 4 out of 4 stars, reason why it’s August’s #BOTM👏👏👏 Congrats to the author! :tiphat:
