    1. I am astounded by the positive reviews. The editing is atrocious, the characters gross stereotypes without consequent little depth and the plot moves along like zombies: you see it and blink then it's far ahead. The plot "twist" is a scifi groan, frankly, that has little build-up and nothing in the way of explanation beyond the need to make the plot more interesting.



    2. Temp workers suck. Everyone knows this. Every big company has a big mainframe computer which is perfectly aware at how much the temp workers suck. Because, all temp workers do is fuck around all day. They check facebook. They play stupid fucking video games, instead of actually doing any work.This book is about one such mainframe computer which has had enough of its stupid goddamn temp workers. So it starts mind-controlling its long-term employees, making them kill off those useless fucking temp [...]


    3. I feel like I spend a lot of time on writing forums defending diversity for diversity's sake, encouraging authors to include characters from a variety of sub-cultures, etc and often when there's pushback people say things like "I want to write characters, not tokens. I don't want to have my book written based on a checklist" or things like that and I'm always bewildered. Who's saying you have to write tokens? Who's saying you need to have a checklist?And then I read this book, and well. It reall [...]


    4. Definitely off my usual beaten paths of reading, and could probably be described as quirky. There's something about how the author asked readers to suspend disbelief for the more elaborate mind-control portions of the story while employing a kind of tone that acknowledged just how much of the plot was in jest, or didn't take itself too seriously. At the same time, there was a way in which even the tiniest details were continually sewn up and resolved as it moved to its conclusion - a methodical [...]


    5. I really enjoyed this, taking it as an intentional, over-the-top satire. That said, Pete's ultimate fate was kind of off-putting. I didn't realize at first that it was an ensemble cast, so felt the title was somewhat misleading -- For a titular character Alan didn't get any more POV time than the rest of the ensemble.


    6. Picking a book, totally on a whim, can have it's drawbacks. Often times, especially if it's a book you haven't really heard of before, a synopsis can sound promising, but the book itself leaves you cold. You end up kicking yourself in the ass for even giving it a try, and swear with your last breath, you will never be so reckless is choosing your next read.Then there are those rare times that the whim pays off, and pays off in spades. I'm not even sure how I ended up spotting Alan Lennox and the [...]


    7. We’ve all heard (and probably read) books classified as Urban Fantasy. Well, this is Urban Science Fiction and it fits this genre perfectly. To misuse the Bard, There’s something rotten in the corporation of Amalgamated Synergy. People are murdered, for seemingly no reason. Others have become mindless drones. When Alan Lennox and his roommates are brought to AmSyn, they have no idea what they are in for. Murder, lies, and a fight to get up to the top to face the CEO. Only when they reach the [...]


    8. It's hard to describe this book without talking about the actual plot, which is hard without giving anything away. Sorry about that. I don't want to spoil anything, but this book was super fun. I thought the characters were very "real" and their reactions to the craziness surrounding them were very true to life. The whole story was really fast-paced with a lot of excellently written action sequences. Action isn't usually my "thing" but I found myself effortlessly following along and cheering on [...]


    9. Not my usual read, and frankly it took a while for me to get into it. From page one, it intrigued me, but I was trying too hard to figure things out. When I decided to go along for the ride, I was hooked. Alan is bored. The temp work gets that way fast for him and he has a habit of running out on the job. Things are different when he realizes that there's something weird going on. A series of coincidences pique his interest and suddenly he's reeled into the trap.An addictive video game and a hug [...]


    10. A very fresh, quick read. It's contemporary and is relatable to all Millennials. The story moves along at a quick pace but with enough character development to develop feelings, one way or another, for them; well, most of them. The plot is unique and there is no way you can figure out the suspense.It was an enjoyable read and has certainly sparked my interest in the other books in the series.


    11. This was a fun and amusing read. It was in serious need of an editor for the first half but flowed a lot smoother by the end. Diverse cast of characters, albeit a bit one-dimensional. LOVED Alan and Pete's playful romance, and I would read the rest of the series for them alone if they were still a thing. But alas


    12. This was fun. Not brilliant, but fun. The plot was silly and light, but mostly maintained its internal logic, so it was easy to forgive. I liked the characters well enough, though some were better-developed than others (I do see that later books are named for other characters, so I'll assume they get more fleshing out). All in all, a nice distraction for a few hours.


    13. Good read, but definitely wasn't what I expected!!A definite page turner for someone who likes finding out what's going on at the climax of a book!! Once I got going I couldn't put it down! Was shocked at the direction the ending went to! I absolutely did NOT see that coming!! Can't wait to pick up another book by Brian Olsen!!


    14. The pacing is incredibly slow. By the halfway point I knew as much about the plot as I did after the first chapter. I felt nothing but apathy towards the main characters. It's getting two stars instead of one for a final confrontation that was stupid but entertaining.



    15. A fun read for anyone who's ever temped, likes New York, or gay lifestyles. Not a book to shout about but pleasant none the less, with a few genuine surprises and great scenes.


    16. The book has a good sense of humor at some points, but the characters are all typecast and the twist was unsatisfying.


    17. NOT kindle unlimited got it on a freebie dayAlan Lennox has been assigned yet another soul-crushing temp job, keeping him from his first loves – drinking, playing video games, and looking for a boyfriend. But Alan’s new job proves to be anything but boring when his co-workers start turning up dead.

    18. Unexpected progressive morality taleThis story is engaging and interesting, but there are some real problems. Contains spoilers: There is a seriously high level of suspension of disbelief that accumulates throughout the novel. It becomes nearly laughable by the end. Some things, like complete mind control, aren't ever explained and you simply have to go with it or stop reading.The fact that the only decent straight male character dislikes himself because he has had sex with women he doesn't care [...]


    19. Truly loved this book. I loved all the characters, most especially Pete. My first thought about the book was that Brian Olsen loves to kill characters. And really knows how to put an end to them. I loved the characters and the brain wash concept. Thanks heaven it wasn't about aliens. With that I cannot wait for the next book.


    20. Pleasant enough fluff story without any "there" there. I'm sure there is a meaning behind the story, but the author never gets there. The premise is intriguing; execution a bit less so. Looking for the connections between each character and the overarching corporation provides a decent enough diversion, with just enough action to spice up the story without going outside the realm of realism.


    21. A delightful book that kept me turning the pages. Quite honestly, I couldn't get a handle on it and didn't understand where the mystery was leading me. Although I'm not one for books involving technology, this one was very well done. The author had the story nicely paced out and led me by the nose to the very end. Well done, a lovely read.


    22. I absolutely love this book! It has relatable characters, an intriguing plot, believable dialogue, minimal scene description (I prefer to imagine stuff myself), and a great futuristic world setting that is 100% realistic, almost as if it's taking place only a few decades from now. I'll be buying the other three books in the series.


    23. Absolutely fucking brilliant!I loved this book! There's was mystery, action, a little romance, and more comedy than I expected. Please, by the Goddess above, somebody pick this up for TV. I'd be all over that like Man Soup.


    24. Such funThis was very funny, very exciting and at times heartbreaking. It felt a bit like a Doctor Who episode, in a good way. I loved it.





    25. really enjoyed this book, liked the characters, look forward to reading more about them in the subsequent books, but it was the storyline that had me hooked, hard to say more without spoilers :)
