Summary

Penguin presents the audio edition of The Warehouse by Rob Hart.

Gun violence, climate change and unemployment have ravaged the United States beyond recognition

Amidst the wreckage, an online retail giant named Cloud reigns supreme. Cloud brands itself not just as an online storefront but as a global saviour. Yet, beneath the sunny exterior lurks something far more sinister. 

Paxton never thought he’d be working security for the company that ruined his life, much less that he’d be moving into one of their sprawling live-work facilities. But compared to what’s left outside, perhaps Cloud isn’t so bad. Better still, through his work he meets Zinnia, who fills him with hope for their shared future. 

Except that Zinnia is not what she seems. And Paxton, with his all-access security credentials, might just be her meal ticket. 

As Paxton and Zinnia’s agendas place them on a collision course, they’re about to learn just how far the Cloud will go to make the world a better place. 

To beat the system, you have to be inside it.

Totally Absorbing!

Fantastic book that was totally absorbing. A very different post apocalyptic concept and maybe a cautionary tale too!
Excellent narration - great character portrayal and differentiation.
An audible credit well spent - I will certainly be looking out for more from this author.

Imaginative story and great narration

Fascinatingly imaginative story with narration that has both pace and gets you right into the characters. Didn’t want it too finish.

enjoyed this but poor ending

enjoyed hearing about how a global merchandiser works, and the characters are great, but im still not sure what happened at the end.
no surprise about the burgers, but eating the corpses of cows and pigs is utterly disgusting and viciously cruel too and most people think this is normal, so not too sure what the issue is there.
i was expecting something dramatic like cryogenics / immortality and I wont give a spoiler but it wasnt exciting.
story is worth a credit for the journey, pacing and build up, but dropped stars for the damp squib ending,
