Summary:

A razor-sharp, darkly funny, and deeply human rendering of a future that's nearly upon us.

Michael and Wendy Mixner are a Brooklyn-based couple whose marriage is failing in the wake of a personal tragedy. Michael, a Wall Street trader, is meanwhile keeping a secret: he's lost the couple's life savings. And Wendy, a digital marketing strategist, has been hired onto a data-mining project of epic scale, whose mysterious creator has ambitions to reshape America's social and political landscapes. When Michael's best friend is murdered, the evidence leads back to Wendy's client, setting off a dangerous chain of events that will profoundly change the couple-and the country.

An endlessly twisty novel of big ideas, Sensation Machines is a brilliantly observed human drama that grapples with greed, automation, universal basic income, revolutionary desires, and a broken justice system. Adam Wilson implicates not only the powerbrokers gaming the system and getting rich at the intersection of Wall Street, Madison Avenue, Silicon Valley, and Capitol Hill, but all of us: each one of us playing our parts, however willingly or unwillingly, in the vast systems that define and control our lives.

    I could not get through this book. I found it to be pretentious. I understand what the author was attempting to do, but for me the delivery was not well executed. At the heart of the story it is about a struggling married couple, the rest is just background noise. It made it hard for the story to flow and the characters unrelatable. I truly don’t understand how stuff like this gets published. I guess the publishers are just as pretentious as the author. I’m glad I got this as a free listen. As far as the narration, it was the only thing that made this tolerable as long as I listen.
