The Day of the Big Storm

I haven’t enjoyed reading a novel this much for a long time! Gale finished reading The Unincorporated Man last week and passed it along to me. I took advantage of the shutdown day, holiday, weekend and storm day to make some progress in the story. I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the impact of corporations on modern life.

Here is an excerpt from the book cover:

The incredible has happened. A billionaire businessman from our time, frozen in secret in the early twenty-first century, is discovered in the far future and resurrected, given health and a vigorous younger body. He awakens into a civilization in which every individual is formed into a legal corporation at birth, and spends many years trying to attain control over their own life by getting a majority of his or her own shares. Life extension has made life very long indeed.

The Unincorporated Man is a provocative social, political, and economic novel that people will be arguing about for decades.
