When Jacob and Megan Brandeis plan to expose a secretive and evil corporation, the fallout threatens to destroy them.
Jacob and Megan Brandeis have gotten jobs with the mega-successful, ultra-secretive Store. Seems perfect. Seems safe. But their lives are about to become anything but perfect, anything but safe. Especially since Jacob and Megan have a dark secret of their own. They're writing a book that will expose the Store-a forbidden book, a dangerous book.
And if the Store finds out, there's only one thing Jacob, Megan and their kids can do: run for their bloody lives. Which is probably impossible, because the Store is always watching . . .

I should have left this one on the shelf. The back cover read so good and promised to be so thrilling. Oh well, I'll be over it when I start the next book tonight.

I have read most of Patterson's books and I have to say this book hit the nail on the head.
I can no longer think of Amazon the same way I have in the past! Loved it!

Generally I have enjoyed books by James Patterson, but I have to admit that I didn't find this one that great of a reading experience. As time goes on and Mr. Patterson collaborates with more and more other authors, it seems like there is less James Patterson to be found between the covers. This story was more than a little disconcerting -- I found the premise to be disturbing - kind of a flashback to the Stepford Wives' days. I would not recommend that anyone start with this as their first Patterson book - one would be less inclined to go back for another.

I am wondering if James Patterson is letting the other authors, whose names appear below his, write the books. This may be why some of the books are not on the same level.

I liked the premise of this story but I felt the book was incomplete. This is very similar to The Circle but I enjoyed the pace of this story much better. However, I felt that it just ended without any explanation or detail as to HOW the ending was accomplished. I wouldn't recommend it for that reason.

I find myself very conflicted about what to say about James Patterson's (and Richard Dilallo's) THE STORE. I found the book aggravating to read. While the story line was interesting and even perhaps relevant as the digital world expands exponentially, the characters were hard to get into and as the book progressed their dialogue became increasingly filled with stilted and bizarre behaviors and dialogue. Several times I thought about just putting it down and moving on. But, I love Patterson books generally and felt something must be hidden to be so bad. Sure enough, with about 12 pages or so go, it came together and one could see the reason for the strange goings on. My unsolicited advice if one chooses to read this book is to see it through and prepare to find it bizarre along the way.

Easy read......but not very good!

I am a huge Patterson fan and love his writing style. However, I was totally disappointed in this work of futuristic fiction. Too far out there for me, and I couldn't buy into the plot or characters.

I fall into the disappointed category. Not one of James Patterson's best by a long shot.

Despite some negative comments, I enjoyed reading this book. Its futuristic theme is not out of the realm of possibility and frightening as it was to the Brandies family. When the "Store" became so big, powerful, and intrusive into private lives, Jacob and Megan decide to write a book exposing it. Interesting plot and twist at the ending.
