Player Piano (Google eBook)
Kurt Vonnegut’s first novel spins the chilling tale of engineer Paul Proteus, who must find a way to live in a world dominated by a supercomputer and run completely by machines. Paul’s rebellion is vintage Vonnegut—wildly funny, deadly serious, and terrifyingly close to reality.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

Review: Player PianoUser Review - Gregory - Goodreads
Described world is unbelievable. All the characters don't have any motivation and seem hollow. I haven't read any other book by Vonnegut, but I assure antyutopia is the genre he's not any good at. Read full review
