When I read Blythe Woolston I never know what the main character is going to ultimately do in MARTians Z is booted out into the world not only by her school recently closed to help balance the budget but also by her mom who takes off and lingers like a specter This is a novel seemingly about a world gone awry where consumers rule the show and the forgotten class of workers some young some mentally ill some fully indoctrinated some whisked off to parts unknown because they can t adjust suffers endlesslyBut really this is a book that s really about transitional anxiety how little high school prepares people for a non college bound path how little our families prepare us for complex social and professional relationships how little we actually end up needing to survive but how much we lack when it comes to being emotionally healthy mentally healthy A great book brisk and funny dark and weird set in a world that s got so much depth it made me think we might not be far from what Woolston s arranged here

MARTians

AllMART abyss Zoë wants to live MARTians is set in a world of exurban decay studded with big box stores where its inhabitants are numbed by shopping and the six o’clock “news” MARTians may be the future but it is frighteningly famili. Before I comment I would like to clarify that yes I fully understand that this is a dystopian futurevery close to the current present about how giant corporations own our lives I ve often been told that the reason I might dislike something is because I don t get it but there s not that much to get I understand the society as presented even Zoe s incredibly annoying Mary Sue behavior as influenced by the drug implant she gets even though that behavior doesn t change at all after she stops the drug Unfortunately this odd and off putting story asks uestions than it answers The premise is interesting but needs some serious editing and revision and the characters need to have dimensions to them and not the personality of a rubber band and a dishrag What happens is this Zoe is 17 and is told in school one day that she and the rest of the students at her school are graduating a full year and a half earlier than planned because the building is needed for something else Not that it was much of a school anyway she s being groomed to work retail She interviews at the two big corporations Walmart and KMart Excuse me that s AllMART and Mart that own everything and gets job offers to both of course as a traineestock boysalesperson Her mother decides to leave the home they share and disappears never to call or contact her in any way She ends up leaving her home and moving in with a group of other teens and one child at an abandoned strip mall Her new job leaves her in serious debt for the training the uniform etc and she starts to slowly uestion the world she lives in ripping out a medication implant that keeps her docile and dopey and helping a woman who kept a baby abandoned at daycare they abandon it elsewhere We find out that Raoul who owned the strip mall died and Timmer hasn t told anyone to which my gut reaction was why wouldn t he tell anyone That makes no sense Eventually Zoe and her friends drive off into the sunset name tags thrown to the wind Here are my unanswered uestionsIf everyone is an employee of either AllMART or Mart if there were others surely our Mary Sue Zoe would have been offered them because she s perfect and entire communities are wiped out then who is doing the shopping there And is this an overpopulated super consumerist society If so why all the vacant buildings If not why the dorms for retail workers And why aren t customers allowed to use the bathrooms Especially if it just means they poo in the dressing rooms was that detail necessary Why did AnnaMom leave in the first place And what was she celebrating that night If Zoe owns the house and the metal and wiring are so valuable why didn t her scavenger friends scavenge her house before she abandoned it especially if they re so poor they share cereal or melted ice cream for dinner She trusts Timmer enough to get a ride home from him but is wary so why is she sleeping next to him in the strip mall every night when she was specifically offered a locked room with a couch to sleep in When Zoe removed her implanted Prozac she got violently ill But if it s such a strong substance why is it that nobody else mentions the drug or their own interaction with it for the whole book If there s so much surveillance everywhere why didn t any of the drones see that Zoe was the one who started a fire that is still raging by the end of the book Why all the random references to kawaii What was it with the photo hidden in the storage unit Did that mean that her dad really did want to be in her life but wasn t for some unknown reason Why would she just leave everything behind without even looking through it after going to the trouble of breaking in ESPECIALLY after finding the photo of the dad she thought never wanted her What was that whole thing with Juliette and the manneuins I seriously have no idea why that scene was in the book And why did they mention that some people are sexually attracted to cartoon characters Why did we keep hearing about a tuna custody battle that went nowhere Why was anyone shocked about the actions of the newscaster some reviews called it chilling but honestly everything was so bland it wasn t even that noteworthy And most importantly Why did I waste time reading this bookI give this book 15 stars Very disappointed No character development no plot excitement nothing I will probably remember after I finish this review

    Read it and weep Blythe Woolston's MARTians hurts to read because though it's labelled dystopianfuturistic it seems scarily contemporaryZoë's mother abandons her and her school closes down She finds work in AllMART and shelter in a laundromat But it's clear she's living day by day and doesn't really have a futu

    clever a dystopian society without an enemyThe plot moves uickly you realize very uickly that something is VERY wrong with this world But it doesn't appear to be any sort of apocalypse Just the continuation of where we might really be headed right now if things don't change As each day unfolds it gets creepier

    A brilliant and bleak depiction of consumerism take to its extreme so not a whole lot further than we currently know itIf you like MT Anderson's

    Another teen dystopia in a world not so far in the future where the populace are brainwashed into consumerism hmm not unlike today Hopefully our schools aren't that bad yet and at least the powerful shopping consortiums don't actually control the airwaves again I say that hopefullyThis is in eual parts bizarre and heart rending Our heroine
