THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Who has the right to change the world forever?  How will we live online?  How do we find comfort in an increasingly isolated world?   The Carls disappeared the same way they appeared, in an instant. While the robots were on Earth, they caused confusion and destruction with only their presence. Part of their maelstrom was the sudden viral fame and untimely death of April May: a young woman who stumbled into Carl's path, giving them their name, becoming their advocate, and putting herself in the middle of an avalanche of conspiracy theories.    Months later, April's friends are trying to find their footing in a post-Carl world. Andy has picked up April's mantle of fame, speaking at conferences and online; Maya, ravaged by grief, begins to follow a string of mysteries that she is convinced will lead her to April; and Miranda is contemplating defying her friends' advice and pursuing a new scientific operation...one that might have repercussions beyond anyone's comprehension. Just as it is starting to seem like the gang may never learn the real story behind the events that changed their lives forever, a series of clues arrive--mysterious books that seem to predict the future and control the actions of their readers--all of which seems to suggest that April could be very much alive.   In the midst of the search for the truth and the search for April is a growing force, something that wants to capture our consciousness and even control our reality. A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor is the bold and brilliant follow-up to An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. It is a fast-paced adventure that is also a biting social commentary, asking hard, urgent questions about the way we live, our freedoms, our future, and how we handle the unknown.… (més)

Interesting but somewhat convoluted follow-up to An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. ( )

This was a lot of fun to read. ( )

It's rare that a sequel is better than the first book but this one really was because it's so perfect for this exact moment in time. I enjoyed the first book...I LOVED this one. If you worry about the power of social media and big companies controlling our interactions and our messaging...this is the book for you. But it's also full of imperfect humans trying their best to save the world and I adore every single one of them. ( )

Really great, read in audiobook and the extra end with Cory doctorow (who is one of my favorite authors) really pushed It over the edge. Both of them write these sort of moralistic stories where they're trying to give their opinion about a (technology) topic. It was interesting at the end where Hank comes at it as a social media user, beneficiary, and content creator while Cory comes at it more theoretically and from policy. I lean towards Cory's trust busting ideas but maybe there's no political will

Either way I think the allegory about social media is well taken and doesn't feel too onerous or belaboured. It's not that the current social media heads are the worst possible,they just shouldn't be in that position of power. The allegorical ending of everyone paying $10 to buy the company and then stop it felt mostly silly and it was funny to end with Carl's brother just hanging out watching

But more than the social media part, the main focus, I liked hearing about Hanks thoughts about interpersonal and personal issues and motivation separate from social media. His part about want and how meditation removes the want to become happy but effective people use the want and aren't happy, rang very true for me. It's also in line with many of my own thoughts on meditation. And even hearing about Andy's way of generating ideas, gathering (and maybe repeating) others ideas, felt like it was just Hanks thoughts.

Finally he isn't unique or uniquely good about it but the random elements of irreverence (whimsy ;) ) are fun to read ( )
