Everybody Shrugged: A timely tale of government overreach with Pythonesque overtones

Everybody ShruggedEverybody Shrugged by Walt Pilcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s advertised as a tale of government overreach on steroids. And it is! Pilcher's humour is Pythoesque, but the story unfolds with a terrible feel of inevitable internal logic that you can only stand back and watch. Obsessions, self-interest, naivety, corruption and plain malice play cat and mouse as the characters and factions jockey for position, each chasing their own absurd goal, and all rushing unaware towards an outcome that none of them could possibly have foreseen.
