‘‘If there’s a better horror novelist than Bentley Little working today, I don’t know who it is. The Store is...frightening. The perfect summer read.’’—Los Angeles Times
Juniper, Arizona, is an off-the-map desert town the retail giant called The Store has chosen for its new location. Now everything you could possibly want is under one roof, at unbelievable prices. But you’d better be careful what you wish for. This place demands something of its customers that goes beyond brand loyalty. At The Store, one-stop shopping has become last-stop shopping.
Bill Davis is the only one in town who senses the evil lurking within The Store. But he can’t stop his two teenage daughters from taking jobs there and falling under the frightening influence of its sadistic manager. When Bill finally takes a stand, he will get much more than he bargained for....
The best he ever had
Great book! Disturbing page turner. Havnt felt the same in a Wal-Mart since.
Great premise, weird way to convey it
Really love the idea of The Store and how it runs, my favorite being the night managers, but felt like the cheap shot sex shock horror hits just kept feeling uncomfortable in a way that really wasn’t what I wanted out of it. Visceral fear and discomfort is what I was excited for and got at times, especially in those night peaks into The Store, but the amount of naked teenagers and various coerced sex/rape scenes really threw it off. Fun commentary on current store giants, and how beast/cult-like they really can be, and it was worth the read for that.
