Suppose the government was gone and big business took over. Now the country is run completely by fat cats with money in their pockets, and those without money have little or no say in how the country is run. Even the police force and the fire stations, once public services, are now run by this upper elite. This is the premise for Leigh M. Lane’s dystopian novel, The Private Sector (World-Mart). She depicts what she thinks the world would look like if the greed of the wealthy remains unchecked. Resources would become harder to come by as those with money stockpile the most valuable commodities. Those without money are thrown in debtors' prisons and devastating diseases sweep across the country. The class divide widens so far that the world spirals into ruin, and those that are left defending the streets wonder if greed isn’t their actual enemy.
The Private Sector (World-Mart) is a really interesting tale because of the realism that Leigh M. Lane is able to bring to this tale. I really appreciated that aspect of the story. Sometimes dystopian stories can be hard to follow, but Lane’s description of this greedy and money hungry world is something that I could immediately see. I think a lot of readers will be able to relate to these problems and will suffer with the characters, knowing it's possible that these things could actually happen. I really enjoyed this premise and thought Lane executed it beautifully. It was a very thought provoking story.
