The Electric State by Simon Stålenhag
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Where Tales from the Loop was eerie and smooth and original, The Electric State oozes a barely concealed scream in a Western USA dystopia that's part Singularity and part Biological AI-human convergence nightmare. And with the artwork, the effortless brief storytelling, the total immersion in the normal, and the new-normal, it's way too easy to lose oneself in the book.
To say that I'm an utter fanboy of these is to not say enough at all.
This was absolutely gorgeous. Not just the artwork, but the storytelling. I cannot recommend it enough.
