About this ebook

"An absolute joy to read. As clever as it is hilarious, as profound as it is captivating.” –James Dashner, Author of <i>The Maze Runner</i>


“A stinging science fiction satire that takes the downsides of modern living to their hilarious and horrifying conclusion.” – Foreword Reviews

ABOUT ALWAYS GREENER:


Life's biggest victim, please step up and claim your prize!


A smash-hit reality show is offering a lifetime of luxury to the one person living the world’s worst life, and now everyone is out to prove just how bad they’ve got it.


Want in? All you’ve got to do is accept ocular implants that let the whole world see life through your eyes, twenty-four hour a day, seven days a week.


Fortunately, there’s still one person who hasn’t lost faith in all humanity. The show’s ever-smiling host is determined to wring some tiny bit of meaning out of this twisted competition and your unhappy existence.


There has to be a purpose behind all this misery.


…doesn’t there?
