Jennifer Government - Max Barry This book had been on my wishlist for a while...so long, in fact, that I had forgotten why I put it on there and what it was about.

The little blurb on the cover said it is a cross between Catch-22 and The Matrix. I would say it absolutely had elements of the absurdist satirical humor of Catch-22, though I didn't really get the Matrix comparison. Very vaguely made me think of Snow Crash, but only because both books feature a completely privatized society (the similarities stop there)

Good, but not great...
