The Company

Title:  The Company
Author:  Chuck Graham
Pages:  224
Year:  2012
Publisher:  WinePress Publishing
Fantastic!  That is the word that immediately came to my mind after finishing reading the last words of this phenomenal book.  This is a fictional allegorical story with a somewhat futuristic setting.  In case readers don’t know, an allegory is defined on as a representation of an abstract or spiritual meaning through concrete or material forms; figurative treatment of subject under the guise of another.  Another meaning of allegory is a symbolical narrative.  Readers will find many biblical truths and parallels to challenge their minds.
Sam Mitchell works for a branch of The Company.  He has a wife and two young children to support.  He is a keen observer and often submits reports to his superiors on ways to improve processes.  One day he is called in to his supervisor’s office, expecting to be fired or at the very least disciplined for his ongoing encouragement of his coworkers.  Instead, he learns he and his mentor, Brian Ellington, have been invited to a conference.  Little does Sam realize that this will radically enhance how he lives his life from here on out.  Sam learns much about others at the conference; he also learns much about himself and how little he has understood what working for The Company really means.
There are many truths to be found with this novel.  Though they may be couched in the setting of fiction, the truth and how it can be applied to your life and mine will grab your attention from right off the page.  Readers will see themselves and others in the characters presented herein.  When confronted with how they have been living their lives, each character is poised on a life-changing pinnacle.  How they react will determine their destiny.  I could see many parallels with current events and relationships in my own life.  This book really made me think and has made me more aware of my purpose in life as a Christian.  A sequel is mentioned at the end of The Company titled, The Rise of New Power, which continues Sam’s story.  I eagerly look forward to this new book.  I highly recommend The Company.  Readers will not be disappointed.  See if you are, in fact, a member of The Company.
My rating is 5 stars.

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
