Summary

Upswings, downturns, bubbles, patent trolls and hackers, venture capitalists and start-ups: sometimes the modern world of high-tech companies seems as ruled by the Fates, the Furies and the Muses, as any classical Greek drama. In this collection of intertwined short stories, a Silicon Valley insider imagines the forces of antiquity still active in the 21st century – with apps, databases, and a serious yen for skim-milk lattes. That person annoying you in the coffee line may be Nemesis – or Lady Luck. Proceed with caution. Your future depends on what you do next.

My Review

3.5/5 Stars

Although I loved the concept of this book, the fates of adults in the business world, the stories themselves didn’t really grab me the way I hoped. There was a lot going on, and I found it was difficult to connect to any of the characters because most of the development in this audiobook went to the plot rather than the people inside of it. With a little more development, this could be a good listen, but as it is, it wasn’t for me.

The narration was good.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
