The Warehouse is a science-fiction thriller by Rob Hart, set in a not-too-distant future Earth where just about everyone lives and works in Cloud.
Think Amazon meets SkyNet with a touch of Logan’s Run.
Paxton has applied to work at Cloud following losing his business to the company. Zinnia has also applied but her motives are more questionable.
She thinks he’s the mark that will get her to her objective in Cloud, but he’s not only smarter than she gives him credit for, but equally as charming.
Together, they’ll learn just how far the company will go to make the world a better place…if it doesn’t kill them first
It’s a fun and fast-paced story that seems not too far from our current reality.
I’ll admit, it took me a few chapters…and tries…to get into the book, but once I did, I couldn’t put it down. The ending also seemed a bit clunky, and left me with quite a few unanswered questions.
But overall, it’s a good book, and turns out, one of those “read it before it becomes a movie,” since director Ron Howard has reportedly optioned the rights.
I’d give it a solid 4 out of 5 stars.
NOTE: This book came out in 2019, but I didn’t get a chance to review it right away. My apologies to the publisher.
