Overview

A comic social satire and futuristic love story, Rate Me Red lies somewhere between Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Gulliver's Travels
Gordy has a problem. His girlfriend, Poppy Nicole, wants to meet him in REALITY TM.
It’s the year 2043 and Twitter, Facebook, You Tube, reality television and Ebay have all merged into the VidNet. Everyone and anyone can have a VidNet show, but it’s the people who are rated, not the shows, on a scale from Purple to Red.
Poppy just knows that if she and Gordy meet in REALITY TM , and better yet, have sex in REALITY TM, on her show, it’s sure to boost her rating. But the prospect makes Gordy so nervous he fails to heed the warning signs of a worldwide economic collapse (caused by a bubble in imaginary toothpaste sales). Will Gordy be able to save VidNet Society? More importantly, will he and Poppy have sex in REALITY TM? The answers lie in Rate Me Red.

Editorial Reviews

Science Fiction and other Oddysseys - Clare Deming
On one level, this book is a light hearted story of Gordy's misadventures in a strange world. Yet it is also a satire of our cultural obsession with reality television, consumerism and image. It made for a surprisingly effective novel on both levels

The concept, characters, plot and writing all worked to make it a riveting experience. I'm not sure what else to even compare it to, except to say that I'm glad I read it, and I think it would appeal to pop culture's fans and critics alike.
Sci Fi Gene - Joshua Westbury
Rate Me Red is bursting with ideas, from the ghetto-bound Blue underclass and mythical Purple untouchables to the pathetically intellectual Rejectionists.

The dialogue is particularly funny and well written, and the novel as a whole has a great pace.
