There are a couple threads on this, but it's been a few years.
I read the first book and came away thinking it was (most likely) a decent fiction written by someone intelligent enough to be angry at the current human condition... and especially angry at the average incredibly selfish, cruel human in a position of power.
The social and economic commentary was nothing a thoughtful, educated Marxist couldn't dream up... and in my opinion, spot on.
Who knows... it could even be true, and IS true in the aspect of critiques about human behavior and how things could be. There is, almost certainly, skads of life "out there."
eta: One thing I noticed, though, was in the interview the author said "according to the book" instead of just saying what happened, so maybe a slip of a Freudian sort.
