Is there a book (fiction) that deals with the issue of internet or media addiction? I know about Infinite Jest of course but it is such a massive and maximalist work as I understand; it would be nice to find something a little more focussed
The book I'm writing features a protagonist who's become totally desensitized to gore and porn from browsing that stuff 24/7. May the beginning of the story he basically realizes he's exhausted all of the internet's charms and goes outside.
How the fuck is it anything like Big Bang Theory? Unless the glaring glut of product placement felt as undignified as suffering through the all too frequent commercial breaks of television.
