Publisher's Summary

Think of the greatest tech company in the world. Imagine getting a job there. Picture the perks: free gourmet food, free booze, a gym, a swimming pool, and a holiday bonus...every month. Brilliant coworkers. No dress code. Great parties. More money. Everyone's admiration.

Vic is just like any other Harvard grad out there except that he just scored a job at tech empire SHOW. But in the hunt for success and happiness, he falls into a shady world of sex, drugs, and swindle. The young tech elites are just as greedy as Wall Street bankers but all the more cunning. Meanwhile, an office affair is brewing, and his father's absence adds to Vic's decline.

The darker, drug-fueled parallel to Dave Eggers' The Circle, Filip Syta's debut novel, The Show, offers a raw glimpse into the dangerous evolution of the tech world.

    Story
    "Empty"

    I agree with the book's message, but the emptiness in this story is ridiculous. "I pushed my hotel keycard into the slot, heard a click, pushed the door open and stepped into my room. it was nice."

    Story
    "3 hours in I was still waiting for a story to emerge"

    I stopped listening with about an hour and forty minutes remaining. I found the title interesting but the story didn't seem to have any substance. We follow the lead character as he goes through new hire orientation, visits family, gets to know a couple coworkers.. 3 hours in, I wondered what the point of the book is beyond following this character around as he learns the ropes at a new job. The situations he finds himself in are not particularly interesting.
