The Future Will Be BS Free by: Will McIntosh review

36560611

Synopsis (as taken from GoodReads)

In this terrifyingly timely tale for fans of The Eye of Minds, a teen and his group of friends find themselves on the run after using a genius lie-detector contraption to expose their corrupt government.

In a Putin-esque near-future America, the gifted and talented high school has just been eliminated, and Sam and his friends have been using their unexpected free time to work on a tiny, undetectable, utterly reliable lie detector. They’re all in it for the money–except Theo, their visionary. For Theo, it’s about creating a better world. A BS-free world, where no one can lie, and the honest will thrive.

Just when they finish the prototype and turn down an offer to sell their brainchild to a huge corporation, Theo is found dead. Greedy companies, corrupt privatized police, and even the president herself will stop at nothing to steal the Truth App. Sam sets his sights on exposing all lies and holding everyone accountable.

But he and his friends quickly realize the costs of a BS-free world: the lives of loved ones, and political and economic stability. They now face a difficult question: Is the world capable of operating without lies, or are lies what hold it together?

Review

/sighhhhhhhhh /facepalm… I just..where to begin… I have so many issues with this book that I even cant begin to concentrate to write this review…

So here goes… First off, while i try to realize this book is about a young teenage boy who is sexually frustrated..BUT that gives no right for (yes I know a character in a book) but for them to be written like they were..just no, not okay…

The MC sexualizes his friends for one.. “Rebe was overweight, but in the right places.”…The overweight girl had an eating disorder and the book while the other ones didn’t and her ED was glamorized. First off “in the right places” , i mean really……

Second the MC watches his BEST FRIEND who is a girl take a shower on the other end of a video chat she thought she had hung up. he never tells her, nor does he say sorry…its like he slapped himself on the wrist so to speak and went on with his life… that is creepy as hell to do to anyone let alone your best friend.

The MC came off as an entitled prick whot hought he was owed such things b/c he was a good friend…again just no…so sorry but i cant justify theses actions in a book like this……
