With a release date set for the future (February 9), this is the perfect time to pre-order. The book is a very quick read of emails, texts, and transcripts. I don’t always feel like you can get to know a person by email or text, but the author did a wonderful job creating characters that you could figure out and understand.
The idea that learning the future could be addictive or too appealing not to peek into, was analyzed from several different personalities. Each is giving you a different view and part of the puzzle that the book puts together.
I did enjoy this first read from this author and will look for other books by them.
If you had the chance to look one year into the future, would you?
For Ben Boyce and Adhi Chaudry, the answer is unequivocally yes. And they’re betting everything that you’ll say yes, too. Welcome to The Future: a computer that connects to the internet one year from now, so you can see who you’ll be dating, where you’ll be working, even whether or not you’ll be alive in the year to come. By forming a startup to deliver this revolutionary technology to the world, Ben and Adhi have made their wildest, most impossible dream a reality. Once Silicon Valley outsiders, they’re now its hottest commodity.
The device can predict everything perfectly—from stock market spikes and sports scores to political scandals and corporate takeovers—allowing them to chase down success and fame while staying one step ahead of the competition. But the future their device foretells is not the bright one they imagined.
Ambition. Greed. Jealousy. And, perhaps, an apocalypse. The question is . . . can they stop it?
Told through emails, texts, transcripts, and blog posts, this bleeding-edge tech thriller chronicles the costs of innovation and asks how far you’d go to protect the ones you love—even from themselves.
