Review: The Grid

User Review  - Monique - Goodreads

Interesting idea: a new building has been constructed that is totally automated. An incident happens and the computer takes over the building and kills the people trapped in it. Fun premise, not so far fetched. Good suspense, interesting characters. I finished it in one day. Fun summer read. Read full review
