I am currently reading this book and I must say, it was certainly a pleasant surprise.I don't usually read such books anymore but I'm glad I read this one. I am almost almost done reading it and although I haven't finish it yet I think if I had to, I'd determine my rating as 3 out of 4 stars.

This book was incredible, and a little scary because the major events which occurred to make the world as it was in the story could feasibly happen. The storyline was full of excitement and intense moments, it was so gripping that there were many times where I told myself "just 1 more chapter" and then still continued to read on well after that. I don't often read books with so much action involved but I couldn't put this one down.
The characters were interesting and shrouded in mystery which invites the reader to continue reading to find out more about them.
Overall, I would give the book 4 out of 4 stars. It's a truly great story and very well-written. I would recommend this book to any adult reader who enjoys action, science fiction and dystopia novels.
I go to seek a Great Perhaps

Anything related to future is interesting. There's a strong possibility that the plot of the story could happen, as the same could be said happening in other places right now. So I think it is best to recommend this book to everyone as it prepares us for the future that could occur or help us prevent a dreadful event and stop such a possible devastating way of living.
yeah, it's definitely one of those things where (if you don't just ignore it) you either end up scared or taking action.

I'm a writer which means I have read a lot books to start with and I was kinda writing a plot on a new book I was writing with the same futuristic kind of setting and I needed ideas so I pick up a lot of books and got the one which I can advice any other writer to do so because I has this mixture of realistic and futuristic combined together equally. Well it is a really nice book to be short, I rate it 3 stars out of 4 stars

I haven't read the book yet. I will be reading this book as sooner as I can and I have it my reading list. I loved the review and the sci-fi with action genre is what makes me want to go for this one.

I agree that anything coming out (book or movie) related to the future could occur. It is eye opening that our world could be like this, although I am sure some people would disagree. I also agree with your point that being prepared for events like this is a good idea. Maybe those whose eyes are opened by this could help in the prevention of our world falling apart completely. FIngers crossed that something like that happens soon!

Absolutely love the book. The story started really strong, and I loved how well-detailed action scenes were. I loved that it was set in the future.

I haven't read this yet, but it sounds incredibly interesting. I love futuristic novels, and this premise: the world being taken over by Supercorporations, doesn't sound too far off. I mean, yes, we technically have laws against monopolizing certain businesses but I wouldn't be surprised if this scenario occurred and left a world of exaggerated consumerism. I am definitely putting this on my list of books to read, I find sci-fi and action novels incredibly captivating and fun to read.

I love books like this--even if they're cautionary tales, as many dystopian books are. They engage imagination and perhaps offer suggestions as to how to combat a proposed future. The more I read others' reviews, the more I want to read it, too. ;)

In my opinion, the book World Incorporated is futuristic and allow us to glance, at the ways of the corporations work in the future. I like the plot of the story and its main character Silver, who accomplishes his missions with dedication and eliminates the homegrown terrorists with a precise methodology.

I enjoyed the review. SciFi and future is really not my interest recently. I read a couple already this year and they seemed so similar.

The review did make it sound a little different so perhaps next month after I read a couple more books. Right now I am reading in a book in the horror genre.

Not read this book yet but an action thriller that it is will make me give it a go. Adding this to my want to read library.
Feeling upset sometimes may be unavoidable, but acting distressed is always optional.
