Reading "The Mandibles: A Family 2029-2047" by Lionel Shriver

Found the book thru a NY Times review.  I can't decide if it is satire aimed at Donald Trump or she is trying out as a latter day Ayn Randor maybe this is what she really believes is inevitable; at one point a chracter says' "Novels about the future aren't really about the future, they are about what we fear now".

Well this novel is about the future.

 I am about 25% in and so far the book is a combination of Donald Trump's anti-immigrant nightmares and a teaparty wet dream with some cyber security scare tactics thrown in.  It's entertaining and everyone in the book so far is amusingly clueless, but it is also deeply unsettling.
