Description


What if you told the truth and the whole world heard you? Would you expect to be believed? What if you lived in a country swamped with Internet outrage? What if you were a woman living in a society that hated women? In this, his first full-length novel, Jarett Kobek answers the questions of our moment: Why do we live with rank misery seeping from the world's cellphones and computers? Why do we applaud the enrichment of tech CEOs at the expense of the weak and the powerless? Why are we giving away our intellectual property? Why is activism in the 21st Century nothing more than a series of morality lectures typed into devices built by slaves? Set in the San Francisco of 2013, amongst the victims of a Silicon Valley bubble, I Hate the Internet offers a hilarious and obscene indictment of our online lives.
