The Warehouse
The Warehouse | Rob Hart
____________________ Cloud is a company which likes to keep its secrets and it guards them well... A near-future thriller set in an America addicted to consumerism; gun violence, climate change and unemployment have ravaged the nation, and an online retail giant named Cloud reigns supreme. Cloud brands itself not just as an online storefront, but as a global saviour. But, beneath the sunny exterior lurks something far more sinister. ____________________ Paxton is a would-be inventor put out of business by Cloud. Hes had his one shot at success ripped away from him and now hes urgently in need of money and a job. Things get more complicated when Paxton meets Zinnia. He cant work her out. She says shes a teacher down on her luck, but she doesnt look or act like a teacher. And she seems to have a plan all of her own. With their agendas putting them on a collision course, they may both learn that the machine is just too big to be beaten.

This book is good. Well written and a compelling look at what it means to be part of the labor precariat where the only jobs available treat you as completely disposable. But it was so grim and such a terrifyingly realistic vision of the future that I couldn‘t handle it. I need something a little more escapist!

Megabooks When you‘re not looking for escapist, this woman worked in a real Amazon warehouse. One of my favorites of the year. 6h

In the not too distant future, two people with ulterior motives sign up to work for Cloud, an Amazon to the nth degree company which has largely taken over society. This is a completely entertaining book which is also smart social commentary. I highly recommend it.

Cinfhen Thinking you might like this book @britt_brooke Sounds good, although I‘m not big on satire. 2w
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen I‘d actually call it more dystopia/speculative fiction than satire. It‘s so interesting to watch the paths the two main characters take and how they evolve through the story. 2w
britt_brooke @Hooked_on_books Sounds entertaining. Stacking! @Cinfhen 2w

A chilling look at what might happen if a corporation was allowed to take over pretty much everything. Scarily plausible.

Probably best not to order your copy from Amazon...

The concept of Cloud and its MotherClouds where workers live and work felt all too real after hearing stories of Amazon, Facebook and Google. At first I thought this was going to be another book just like The Circle. But this added a layer of corporate espionage and someone who we know from the start is not who or what they say they are. Definitely a page turner and I enjoyed it from start to finish. #reviewathon book 8.

Back from holiday to free bookmail! Freebie from penguin for participating in their Bookmarks forum. Hadn't heard about this one, but sounds right up my street.

TheSpineView I read it. A near future dystopian where an Amazon like company controls the world. Big business gone horribly wrong. It was good. 1mo
Oryx @TheSpineView doesn't sound too far off from reality unfortunately! 1mo
TheSpineView @Oryx Agree! Makes you not want to bug anything from Amazon! 1mo
squirrelbrain Sounds like a good one... love the cover! 1mo

All is not as it seems though in this dystopian tale that feels prescient and the power these companies wield is what makes this so utterly scary. Will Zinnia complete her task, Will Paxton become a company guy? Just how far will Cloud go to keep its secrets?

A completely mesmerising and compelling tale of our possible future…..absolutely petrifying and brilliant……a MUST read cautionary tale.

I'm a Sci-Fi and dystopian fiction fan and I thought this novel holds it's own against Handmaid's Tale, Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451 (which are all mentioned in this book). This novel as well as the newly released The Farm by Joanne Ramos shows us the not so distant future and its a bit unsettling. I highly recommend them both. #Reviewathon review #1

The mantra of the market dictates pervades every part of this novel. We want cheap products delivered quickly. What are we prepared to sacrifice to get what we want? In the Cloud, we see the brutal work environment, the Draconian ratings system and how those in charge are prepared to take some very 'grey area' decisions in order to give the consumer exactly what they want. And how people fight against it. A scary possible future....

This #dystopian novel is just near-future and realistic enough that it's creepy as all get-out. Smart and clever in a relaxed, never-pretentious style. Definitely a page-turner. I loved hating the Cloud CEO. The Le Guin reference at the end ties in perfectly, and another quote made my anarchist-leaning heart happy and energized. This is an entertaining book, yes, but we should pay attention to its messages and consider ourselves warned.

Laura317 This had me wanting to dump all online shopping and deal only with local shops. Creepy is right, but so good! 3mo

This is a must read for fans of 1984 and The Handmaid's Tale. A hair raising, near future dystopian tale of an Amazon like company that has grown to control the world. It will make you think twice about your next online purchase. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

rretzler Stacked, but I‘ll still love Amazon after I‘ve read it!🤣🤣🤣 3mo
Laura317 Agreed! 3mo

This novel imagines a world of global warming and Amazon taken to extremes. Corporate spy, company control of all aspects of your life, lots of familiar elements. The story, too, fell a bit flat for me. #netgalley

Starting this Netgalley book while waiting for daughter to get a tooth filled. The idea intrigued me. Kinda like Amazon gone crazy.

Laura317 This book was good! I may never order from Amazon again after this! Although I had an idea who the bad party was, I wasn‘t positive until the very end. #Netgalley 3mo
