The cloud referred to in this book's title is not the meteorological type but rather the technological variety: an all-knowing entity where everything resides, including data, dreams and memories. Matt Richtel's novel will resonate all too clearly with readers well aware of the pervasive nature of computers in our lives.

Freelance journalist Nat Idle is involved in a horrific accident after falling onto subway tracks. Still in a haze, he encounters an alluring woman who is there to help him. He later realizes that what he thought was an accident was the result of someone intentionally trying to do him harm. The investigator in him pushes to find the answers, and what he uncovers in his search for the truth will amaze and terrify him.

This gripping tale will leave you looking at technology in a new way. It may scare you so badly that you'll be afraid to even turn your computer on. Richtel is a great storyteller, and The Cloud will both frighten and fascinate you.
