The Warehouse

Dystopia. I usually prefer novels about a bleak future to be set in a distant future time, not today or the near future. When I started reading Rob Hart’s satire titled, The Warehouse, I began to warm to a very dystopian take on contemporary American culture. A company named Cloud has become the dominant business enterprise in the United States. The thriller aspects of this novel dominate the satirical social commentary. Hart lets the story speak for itself, and Cloud does what it is has been built to do. Hart gives us workplace conditions that exploit, corporate behavior that’s predatory, and a culture of surveillance that’s downright creepy. The characters are finely drawn and complex. My discomfort from reading this novel arises from the sensation that everything Hart describes is plausible. A company that gives people what they want. What could be wrong with that?
