Jacob e Megan Brandeis stanno per perdere tutto. A New York non sembra esserci più un posto per chi, come loro, vive della propria scrittura.
È un mondo che li respinge, costringendoli a una scelta difficile: lasciare ogni cosa e trasferirsi con la famiglia in un villaggio del Nebraska, per intraprendere un nuovo lavoro.
Ma non è un posto qualsiasi, né un lavoro qualsiasi.
Jacob e Megan diventano parte integrante dell’immenso organismo di The Store.
The Store non è solo «un» negozio on line. È «il» negozio on line, dominatore assoluto del mercato…
The Store ha tutto e può consegnare tutto, grazie all’utilizzo di droni. The Store riesce addirittura ad anticipare le esigenze dei consumatori. Li conosce bene, anzi troppo bene.
The Store è un forziere pieno di desiderabili oggetti, e di terribili segreti…
E per tenerli celati The Store è disposto a tutto.

Una realtà sempre più inquietante, e sempre più vicina…

Quite honestly the worst book I've ever read by JP and maybe in all the books I've read total. An idiotic version of The Circle that read like a jr high kid writing a story and making it up as he told it.
James Patterson and Richard DiLallo have collaborated on another piece that shines a light on the potential monopoly that could become the world with a turn towards mega-stores in the coming years. Jacob Brandeis and his family live in the ever-moving world of New York City. He’s a struggling writer Leggi tutto
Not the best Patterson novel I have read but it was entertaining and had moments of tension and excitement. The audio was okay apart from the male reader doing rather strange female voices. That was funny rather than irritating so we got along okay. I imagine that Patterson and his co writer were try Leggi tutto
To me, this was a poor ripoff of Bentley's "The Store". There was a reason I quit reading Patterson's work a long time ago. I should have stuck to my guns. This guy puts out like 50 books a year (being a bit sarcastic, but not far from the truth), and it shows. Not recommended.
It could have been a good novel, but I don’t think the authors took upon themselves to write it seriously. Great potential gone to waste. Unbelievable characters, and a too far fetched plot. The message about the direction society and technology is heading was completely lost with such a terrible en Leggi tutto
Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Seriously, why didn't they just call this book 'Amazon' and save the pretence? I am not normally one of those people who like to read too much into the subtext of a book because usually at best people who do that sound pretensious, and at worst they are reading too much into Leggi tutto
I don't give a book just one star lightly. It really was that bad. I've read a smattering of James Patterson over the past couple decades, and while some are better than others, this one was the worst I've read, by far. It was an interesting idea ~ an Amazon-like company is trying to take over the w Leggi tutto
I found this book to be incredibly creepy. It reminded me of a combination of the movie "Enemy of the State" and the book "1984". I just loved the book and the extent to which the story seems so real in that could it really happen. The only thing I didn't like about it was, it just seemed like it wr Leggi tutto
Not to much to say on this one other than I am disappointed because I really like James Patterson. I think he needs to stop trying to put out so many books a year and get back to serious writing. While this should have been a quick read, it took me a whole 10 days to finish it. Not thought provoking Leggi tutto
I love a fast paced James Patterson book! The Store knows all.. The Store controls all.. a very entertaining and sometimes scary look at life in the modern world
