20 Aug Cloudy With A Chance Of Clouds
• Thank #RandomHouse via #Netgalley for this ARC of The Warehouse by Rob Hart •
Today is publication day for The Warehouse by Rob Hart. There has been a lot of hype surrounding this novel and the movie rights have already been acquired by Ron Howard.
This was a fantastic read and I do recommend it. I was given an ARC in part because I had given a favorable review for Recursion by Blake Crouch on Netgalley. After reading The Warehouse, although the story and writing style differ from Crouch’s, I do think if you are a fan of Crouch you will enjoy this book.
Below is part of the review I posted on Netgalley:
This story follows Paxton and his job at an all encompassing company called The Cloud, which is quiet reminiscent of another large company that exists today. In addition, The Cloud also reminded me a bit of the tech-giant company in another book called The Circle by Dave Eggers, which is also a good read.
As Paxton cannot believe his luck at landing a position at The Cloud, Zinnia never thought she’d be investigating (undercover) The Cloud. She is sent to uncover what makes The Cloud work, to find out its secrets. Life and work at The Cloud is meant to offer entertainment as well as a wonderful career, tied up neatly together. As Zinnia learns more, she realizes her relationship with Paxton will be at stake. Obviously trouble is bound to follow. This novel is fast-paced and will keep you guessing.
Go check it out, because “success begins with you,” or so they say at The Cloud.
“And read… read all the time… read as a matter of principle, as a matter of self-respect. Read as a nourishing staple of life.”
