Ads R Us
Ads R Us is set in a modern industrialised city in the near future, where advertising is a constant stream of inescapable information, and corporations sponsor everything from music to schools. Barrett Trent has been raised outside the mainstream society in a Luddite cult called Simplicity, but following the death of his uncle, he goes to live in the city with his Aunt Cara, Uncle Adrian and cousin, Taylor. But his aunt and uncle have a hidden agenda - they work for a company called Ads for Life, which promotes advertising and uses it covertly for political gain. They see Barrett as the perfect guinea pig for their experiments into the effect of advertising on an untouched mind. But Barrett may prove harder to crack than they think…
Ads R Us is one of the best, most fascinating books I have ever read. It took me two days to read. It was that good!!
It's set in the far future when technology has really reached its peak where advertising is main form of communication to customers and the main contributor to the economy. The story really gets into the minds of two people who live during this time, Barrett and Taylor. However, Barrett has lived his whole life away from this world whereas the Taylor is more accustomed to this world. When they meet they know their differences. Taylor’s mum and dad are big business people when it comes to advertising and they want to find out how advertising seems like to people who have never been in the middle of a world full of advertising. One of these people is Barrett.
This book is fantastic. It may seem boring when you read a this but it’s truly fascinating and it really makes you think about the world we live in today.
Ads R us is a really good book. It is quite strange but also fascinating. I have never read anything like it. It goes into depth on reality and what its like from two different peoples views. I have really enjoyed reading it, and i feel as though I cannot put it down.
