This is how the world is today. There is an immutable lack of scruples to fight for truth. It takes a man with a special will power to challenge corporations which have so much power. Sounds interesting and very realistic

On the outset, 'World Incorporated' seems like an action-packed dystopian thriller. However, if we pay a bit attention, we will see that the story is set in 2058, which is just forty years down the line. This makes us wonder about where the world is heading and think about the changes that we should make.

Thank you, Yolimari for this amazingly detailed review. I will surely try to check it out.

Thank You so much for Your kind work. There's no problem, if you use, the ''ideas'' as You say, I think that in a really healthy society and of solidarity, ideas should be common.
ALL THE VERY BEST,

Not much into sci-fi, but this one seems interesting because of the possibility of the story becoming a reality. Scary as the thought is, corporations running the world, maybe this book can help us from making it real. Thanks for your review. Congrats BOTM!

I'm not sure I could ever give this book 4 stars after suffering through the chapter with the newspaper articles. That was enough to bring an avid reader to their knees. The idea behind the book was clever but I found the story too oversimplified with no real drama or suspense. I would have loved to know how the actual world lived behind the tiny portion we saw when Sliver was sent out on a job.

Book review:world incorporated by tom Gariffo
The book scene is identified and captured in the united states whereby organisations which were super powered
took over the nation and the rest of the nation. was in the year of 2058 whereby human beings were no longer considered as citizens of the nation but were treated as slaves.Human beings in real sense were consumers rather producers.due to organisation taking over the nation and the world ,united states fall due to its inability to manage its economy.

in the book, a character by name silver has done unpleasant work for four years an became the CEO of the world,to him a job was nothing at all and he did not care at all.he saved Kelly.he had misterious feelings of his past that made him have the only feeling of killing the CEO called Ancarn of the Multinational.the book used dilemma as a stylistic device which give a lot of questions about the next move or action of Agent silver.

the book as written by Tom Garrifo,world,incorporated.the book consist of 286 pages and also consist of world version with styles of science fiction.

the very interesting things in the book is the styles and themes used that made this story interesting.for example a mediocre government on deadlock and fall of united states.this gives us a foreshadow of the oncoming world of today.

as i read this book i enjoyed the characters for example agent silver who is a cold blood an a killer.the Shredders in this book symbolize those people in the united states who go against the law which was termed as status quo.

i give this book World incorporated,Tom Garrifo 3 out of 4 stars.i recommend this book to people who are not sensitive readers but those who are big fans of action thriller .
