Reader reviewed by two sided freek

So, I read the inside flap and I was like, oh so basically this is about shallow people who think they're cool. But once I started reading this book, I realized that it's surprisingly deep. So once I found out that this book is signed for a movie deal, it didn't come as a surprise. What I love about this book is that it can take the simplest thing as a new way to ties shoelaces and twist it into something so much more. The whole idea of this huge pyramid of cool seriously fascinates me. And the whole corporation is no less entrancing. Scott Westerfeld has pulled of something as shallow as how you dress, even if it does show your individuality, into a semi-sci-fi that grabs your attention and keeps you hooked on.
