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 something that isn't there and are completely off the mark However in this book it's not so much a subtle undertone that needs deciphering as it is a blatant shout out at the largest book retailer around It takes only a 10 second Google search to find out that James Patterson has issues with and has gone on the record with those issues Therefore when he writes a book about struggling authors who also have trouble with sorry The Store and therefore decide to go undercover and write an expose on the giant company it's not hard to put two and two together Add this to the fact that 'The Store' is an advocate of using drones for delivery is taking over multiple markets and a number of other unsubtle clues it is so obvious who this author is taking a dig at Now the amazing thing is that I am giving this book a 1 star review even though by and large I hear and understand James Patterson's complaints about the company is getting to be too big there is a very real danger that it poses to the literary market and it is on its way to becoming a monopoly There are also some very suspect things going on behind the scenes at the company especially in regards to how they deal with customers data So being as I am aware of and interested in all of these story elements why the one star?Mainly because this book was about as subtle as a car crash The extents 'The Store' has gone to in this book to step on human rights and to go past the moral grey area right into evil is ridiculous I see no immediate future and this is set in either the immediate future or in present day where any company could possibly get away with doing what 'The Store' does in this book without there being a massive public backlash of the kind that would accompany a new Nazi order rising to power and setting up new death camps And that's just the start of how unbelievable this book is It is a short novel if not a novella that jumps from plot point to plot point in an effort not to tell a story but to pretend to do so while instead pumping out the author's biases and propaganda It was not just preachy it was laughably so There's no character development or any realistic characters for that matter You never buy into any decisions that are made any scenarios in the book or You know what let's just stop there because the list could go on and I'm frankly as fed up of writing this review as I was of reading this book I read to the end of this book because I was fascinated with how far this author has fallen Remember when he used to write enjoyable fiction novels that were easy reading and gripping? This isn't even the first book where I have noted this exact problem with James Patterson A couple of years back I read 'Truth or Die' a pro NSA propaganda piece barely disguised as fiction and I had all the same issues with that book as I had with this one The point I am making through all my ramblings is that James Patterson is a fiction author and he needs to remember that It's fine for him to have political and personal beliefs but there's a time and a place for those If he absolutely has to put those beliefs into his books then at least he could try to be subtle about it than he was in this monstrosity of a book Bashing someone around the head with your beliefs is about as good away to get them on your side as robbing them something this book is guilty of by promising one thing an action thriller and delivering something else1 star and that is generous
