THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU.
YES, YOU SPECIFICALLY.

WELCOME TO QUALITYLAND.

We hope you enjoy your trip to the happiest, most advanced place on earth.

QualityLand is the world's first 2.0 country, where everything is run by infallible algorithm, including:

- Society (in which everyone is ranked by level)
- Shopping (orders arrive before you even know you want them)
- Relationships (you will be notified instantly if there is a better match)

In fact, this very algorithm selected you to visit QualityLand. If you don't like it, you're not just ungrateful - you're also wrong, because the algorithm is always right.

While you're visiting, be aware there is an election going on - the perfect time to see QualityLand in action...

ENJOY YOUR TRIP!

Rob Hart, author of The Warehouse

'This is spot-on satire.'

MEDIA REVIEWS
Nineteen Eighty-Four meets Vonnegutian slapstick in a free-wheeling satire spliced with black humour and some gloriously wicked social commentary. * GUARDIAN *
This brave new world is revealed in a series of pin-sharp, unsettling and scathing vignettes... Brilliant satire and a great read that is currently in production as an HBO TV series. * DAILY MAIL *
As the carrier for a slew of satirical ideas about the state of our internet-enabled society, Marc-Uwe Kling's international bestseller is full of zing from first page to last... a dystopian comic yarn comparable to Black Mirror, Kurt Vonnegut or Philip K Dick * THE TIMES *
QUALITYLAND is very funny and very scary - my kind of book. * Mike Judge, creator of Silicon Valley and King of the Hill *
An amusing skewering of the logical consequences of the world's increasing efficiency and optimisation. * NEW SCIENTIST *
The best kind of satire, offering up a funhouse mirror version of our world that is so smart and so cutting, you have to laugh to keep from crying. * Rob Hart, author of THE WAREHOUSE *
An enjoyable romp through an overwrought capitalist dystopia masquerading as a Utopia. * LITERARY REVIEW *
Satire reminiscent of Douglas Adams or Rob Grant * STARBURST *
This is spot-on satire. * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY *
How much you enjoy this is in direct proportion to how much trouble you think we're in. Sleep tight. * KIRKUS REVIEWS *

“Unique, hilarious, dystopian consumerism thriller-ish”
