I really wanted to like this book. However, the novel violates the first rule of fiction: tell an interesting story. It reads more like a business article gone amok. Don’t get me wrong. The writing is competent and Reid knows a lot about the tech industry, but the book could have been 250 pages shorter. And I’m not a fan of present tense, especially in fiction.
In the acknowledgements section, the author states that the novel was a team effort. The problem is that it reads like it was written by committee. Given the premise, it should have been a more interesting story.
