The only tie-in book for USA's award-winning series MR. ROBOT, Elliot's journal--Red Wheelbarrow--is written by show creator Sam Esmail and show writer Courtney Looney.

Before and during the events of season two, Elliot recorded his most private thoughts in this journal--and now you can hold this piece of the series in your hands. Experience Elliot's battles to gain control of his life and his struggles to survive increasingly dangerous circumstances, in a brand-new story rendered in his own words.

The notebook also holds seven removable artifacts--a ripped-out page, a newspaper clipping, a mysterious envelope, and more--along with sketches throughout the book. You'll discover the story behind MR. ROBOT season two and hints of what is to come. This book is the ultimate journey into the world of the show--and a key to hacking the mind of its main character.

MR. ROBOT is a psychological thriller that follows Elliot (Rami Malek, The Pacific), a young programmer, who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and as a vigilante hacker by night. Elliot finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader (Christian Slater, Adderall Diaries) of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the firm he is paid to protect.

Who knew it was possible for the weirdness and confusion of Mr Robot to be contained in a novel? I spent most of Red Wheelbarrow trying to guess what was happening, what was about to happen, what ... Read full review
