Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Nineteen Eighty-Four, ‘Electronic Gags’ presents a chilling portrait of a dystopian United States ruled by a tyrant. To tighten his grip on power, the president introduces a new surveillance system that can monitor people’s offline conversations. Privacy is officially dead.
Freddie is not your everyday action hero. He is fat and he is not an ex-special forces operative. But what he lacks in agility and combat training, he has in brains. His life changes when the government arrests his best friend, Michael, for attending an opposition meeting. Michael’s mother accuses Freddie of betraying her son. Against all odds, Freddie must prove his innocence and save Michael from death row. The only way for Freddie to save Michael is to overthrow the government. But the government is watching him. It is watching everyone.
During his fight for freedom and survival, Freddie meets Jennifer, a self-styled tough girl. Jennifer hates Freddie at first sight. She hates fat people but she needs Freddie in her own fight for survival.
