The Company by Chuck Graham Book Review/Blog Tour

About The Company-

A meteor strike plunges the world into darkness. A stranger to the village of Brigos Glen restores power and light, supplied by three businesses, known as “The Company,” located beyond the forbidden mountains. The stranger reveals a plan so the Brigons can maintain thepower and share the light with outlying territories, which remain shrouded in darkness.

Now, seventy years later, The Company summons six Brigons, including the young engineer Sam Mitchell, to attend a conference in themountains of the forbidden Outlands. 

Responsible for compiling a report about Brigos Glen from his five companions, Sam learns how managers and villagers largely ignored theplan or compromised it to self-interest, forsaking their duty to share the light. They also took for granted The Company responsible for generating and transmitting the power.

In an ordeal fraught with failure, revelations, and judgment, Sam discovers the true identity behind The Company and learns the fate that may befall Brigos Glen . . . that is, unless he can stop it.

My Thoughts- 

I thought the concept of this book sounded fabulous, a modern day parable about the trinity. However, I found the book to be lacking. I felt like it was a drawn out story for an explanation that didn't occur until the last few pages of the book. I think there was a great idea behind the book and I liked the characters. I liked the entire concept of the book, just for me, I felt like there was something missing. I also thought it got off to a slow start, but I did appreciate the back story of how the "Last Day" went down. I felt like the book definitely picked up in the middle and continued to hold my attention to the very end.  I did think it was a good read overall, on a scale of 1 to 5, I would give it a 3. Of course, we all known opinions differ, so check it out for yourself and see what YOU think!
