Jennifer Government

If you’re tickled by the prospect that a sportswear company could release a fabulously expensive pair of trainers, but then choose not to market them, until demand reaches fever pitch levels leaving the company to dump thousands of pairs onto the market, thus turning a colossal profit overnight, then this book is for you.
Set in a near future in which commerce has gone mad, and big business rules the world with their all powerful “loyalty card” schemes, Jennifer Government is a comic thriller. Some of it is a little heavy handed, but full marks for some of the merciless ideas that author Barry presents.
To be honest, I thought that the book could be a little shorter, and it wasn’t as well done as Mammon Inc which was set in a slightly less mad world. An entertaining tube read nonetheless.
