Publisher's Summary

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." - Arthur C. Clarke
HELLO, I AM THE TETHER
The Phone Company has been around for a long time. As civilization grew, so did its power, slowly spreading its lines across the continent. Today it's in everything. It's in the air around us.
I CAN TRACK YOUR KIDS FOR YOU
Now PCo is building a cell tower in the isolated town of Cracked Rock, Montana, bringing with it infrastructure, opportunity, and the world's smartest phone: the brand-new Tether.
I CAN SPY ON YOUR NEIGHBORS
But the Tether isn't just a phone. It knows everything about you. It can give you anything you want. It can even connect you with the dead.
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GET CONNECTED
As the Tether digs up the town's dirtiest skeletons, one father must make a stand to save what's left of his family, his town, and humanity itself - or succumb to his own desires.
THE TETHER:
I'M NOT TECHNOLOGY

I really wanted to like this book

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.

Not my cup of tea!

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.
