Description

Part romantic comedy and part social satire, here one of science fiction's most lauded authors examines the consequences of having too much connectivity, and what happens in a world where, suddenly, nothing is private. One of science fiction's premiere humorists turns her eagle eye to the crushing societal implications of telepathy. In a not-too-distant future, a simple outpatient procedure that has been promised to increase empathy between romantic partners has become all the rage. So when Briddey Flannigan's fiance proposes that he and Briddey undergo the procedure, she is delighted! Only.the results aren't quite as expected. Instead of gaining an increased empathetic link with her fiance, Briddey finds herself hearing the actual thoughts of one of the nerdiest techs in her office. And that's the least of her problems.

Professional reviews

"An engaging and satirical look at relationships, technology, and connectivity in the digital age is expertly narrated by Mia Barron. Briddey Flannigan, an executive at a telecommunications company, has been asked by her boyfriend to have an EDD--a "minor neurological procedure" that will make them better able to sense each other's feelings and communicate. Things don't go as planned. Barron does an outstanding job of distinguishing between the conversations in Briddey's head and those happening in real life as well as adding authenticity to each of the characters Briddey interacts with. The audiobook combines humor, romance, and satire while providing social commentary on where to draw the line in communication, technology, and relationships.
