I finished reading the Unincorporated Man a while ago and was completely lost in it. This book was probably one of the bst and most engaging book I've read in the last year. I recently bought the sequel The Unincorporated war, and am so far loving it, i was just wondering if anybody else has read this series? and if so what are your thoughts?

I'd honestly never heard of it before I saw your post, but looking it up I'm rather intrigued.  I'll try to get my hands on a copy next time I've got a doc appointment (only time I get to a bookstore is after seeing one of my specialists since there are neither a bookstore nor specialists any closer to where I live).  Thanks for the unintended suggestion!

I haven't read it either. It sounds interesting.

From the wiki:

"Some reviewers argue that the book spends too much time extolling the idea of personal incorporation and not enough time criticizing it. The book is also criticized for a lack of depth, with the plot and characters' motivations all put in service of explaining the book's primary concept instead of developing in any natural fashion."

For the sake of discussion, any thoughts on this?

I found "The Unincorporated Man" to be a textbook case of a great idea that was only adequately written. I enjoyed it, but it was clear that this was the Kollins' first foray. I will have to look into The Unincorporated War.
