4.5 Score: 4.5 (From 11 Ratings)


The Cloud is an exhilarating, cutting-edge thriller from Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times technology and science reporter Matt Richtel.

When the next generation of technology seeps into the brains of the next generation of people, former medical student turned journalist Nat Idle must investigate and stop the invasion.

In the tradition of Lisa Gardner, Steve Berry, and Joseph Finder, Richtel has delivered a whip-smart page-turner that melds cutting-edge science with a technological mystery and a shocking finale. A deftly told tale, the scariest part of The Cloud is how close to reality it could be.

The Cloud, the second in the Nat Idle series, includes a bonus short story, "Floodgate."


  • Should be Good

    My only comment (and I like the previous fast paced thrill rides that the author delivers) is that he failed to specify which clouds he is writing about. Is it an altocumulus lenticularis cloud or more of a noctilucent? Regardless I am certain I will buy more than just one copy! Hopefully there are a few pictures. And a good bibliography at the end. Thank you for continuing to write.
