Super Sad True Love Story - Gary Shteyngart Super Sad True Love Story is set in a dystopian near-future USA. I found it most interesting and engaging as a satire of some of the extreme implications of materialism, social media, constant connectedness, and the global financial crisis.The actual ‘love story’ had less impact for me, partly because of the main character, Lenny. While I understand that Lenny was intended to be old-school and out of touch with the society he lived in, at times his naivety was not credible. Was it meant to be so completely obvious that those texts were not from Nettie Fine at all, or was it just me?Overall, an entertaining and thought-provoking read.
