In other words: Clay just started trying the bookshop he works at to get running, having new books attracting real customers, eventually making the shop not only being one of the bases for a secret foundation. Which this book is about.
Nice twist, right?
This is a modern book. Online pages are bookmarked, he updates with F5, slides od a presentation are present. Clay is unemployed at first, very down to earth, and is looking for a job. The boys do not get the girls, at least not all of them, and there is even room for a breakup. The language is chit-chatty and rich. Maybe this is how a computer game's story could look like in text.
Me recommend. For a daily distraction and recurring suspense, even so between two train stations. Will Clay, Neel, Kat and Mr. Penumbra find the source to eternal life?
