I have not yet read World Inc. But this discussion about similarities with Wall-E definitely makes me want to give it a try. Hope that it is a good experience.

I haven't read the book yet, but this comparison makes it seem very very interesting.

I get where you're coming from, but I think they're more different than they are alike.

Wall-E features a small robot who cleans up messes, and World, Incorporated features a hitman. The humans are still on Earth in World, Inc, and in space for Wall-E. They may both feature under-stimulated humans, but the humans of World, Inc must worry about competing companies.

Good observation! In both of them, giant corporations take over and take control of people's lives and turn them into imbecile beings. As I have not read beyond the sample, I won't be able to point out further differences.
