The Phone Company has all the makings of a great audiobook: timely topic, engaging characters and great reader. But, it failed to live up to its potential on so many levels. There were a lot of places in the book that I was just scratching my head wondering if I missed a chapter or 2. The author also brings up things for no reason that don't go anywhere. There was one really good story line that got went nowhere: the app that updated to the past. It could have been used at the end to make a happy ending. But instead, the book was just over. Other authors have used that tactic successfully, this ending was just disappointing.

I couldn't finish it. I get it technology is bad, it's invasive, it's unhealthy, it can change everything, but do you have to take like the first 25 chapters telling me that! I really tried I gave it every chance but I just couldn't get through it! if I could I want my money back that's how much I didn't like it.

I really enjoyed this story. It is much like the stories of Bentley Little which I love. It was well narrated and I found it hard to put it down. Unfortunately the end was a little disappointing but it didn't take anything away from the story itself. I suppose in the future with the way technology is ever expanding this type of thing could actually happen, after all more and more people are going over to smart phones even oldies like me. To think that a phone could be built which knows everything about everyone secrets and all and which can make things happen is scary.
A massive communications firm opens a new site in a small, sleepy, American town. A family is struggling with the loss of the mother, the children glued to their smart phones for solitude. Then strange things start happening in town.....what has the phone company got to do with it and just how powerful are their apps?!
