"A cogent breakdown and sendup of modern political discourse...Entertaining antics and Hallberg's snappy prose make for a very engaging read."—Kirkus Reviews
The Robots Are Coming, The Robots Are Coming
There's trouble brewing—bigly— in ritzy Canaandale, NY, during the run-up to the hotly contested 2016 presidential election.
—From US Review of Books
"There is plenty of drama built into this story, but the driving source of conflict is the concept of income inequality and the influence of Piketty's ideas. Whether it's the wealthy trying to decide what the poor deserve to make or the younger generation struggling to make a living, the idea of minimum wage and a healthy living wage drive the action from beginning to end...The dynamic cast of characters draws the reader in and presents multiple perspectives to a challenging and necessary debate which is never heavy-handed or boring in the slightest. At times darkly comic but always certainly relevant to modern issues facing Americans, this story succeeds in being both entertaining and thought-provoking."
— From Self-Publishing Review
"An astute and well-written exploration of the issue of the mechanization of the workforce… the book riffs on the state of modern consumerism and the pitfalls of a world wherein the working class are unable to earn living wage in a world that demands unsustainable consumption… It does this effectively without being too heavy-handed, with a subtle satirical bite to the material, and presents a solid case through a focused cast of relatable characters facing a scarily believable scenario."
