I’m currently reading The Unidentified by Rae Mariz for my literature subject at uni – we’re currently focusing on dystopian ‘risk society’ novels, which means lots of examining the capitalist and consumerist nature of society!

According to votes, it said I was a 2.5. Halway between ‘You’re a Skeezy Crack Whore’ and ‘You Are One of the Unwashed Masses’. Most of the Craftsters got sixes – Yeah, You’re Pretty Cute – except Avery, who got an eight, You Are a Classic Pinup Girl.
The Unidentified, page 207

I haven’t yet decided how I feel about the book – it’s hard to make personal decisions when I’m analysing it for risk society indicators… But this passage is a pretty good example of the characterisation of the protagonist Katey, aka Kid.
