What makes this story all the more horrifying in its implications is the question it raises--could this actually be happening now, unbeknownst to us? Mark Weston begins in a high-pressure job at OneMarket, intent on working off debt accumulate 4. Mark Weston begins in a high-pressure job at OneMarket, intent on working off debt accumulated by his now-deceased father-in-law.
What he doesn't anticipate is a new, secretive, technology that the company is developing A captivating edge-of-your-seat novel.
My only minor complaint is that the "final" of sorts seemed a bit too short for my liking. Still, that didn't detract from this excellent debut novel from Lisa Von Biela. I'll be watching for her next release. View 1 comment. This is not a typical book I would probably read but the cover caught my attention and I couldn't help myself since I have been looking to expand my book world.
The book was well written and it kept me hooked the whole time. I had trouble putting it down once I started reading it. I really liked the technical aspect to it and found it very interesting since technology is such a huge part of our daily lives but I liked that it was written in a way that was easy to understand. I found that I Wow! I found that I was very excited for Mark and Sheila when he got hired at OneMarket and hearing all the benefits definately made me jealous.
Even though they were both well prepared for the long hours he would have to work I was still a little surprised at first at just how long those hours really were. I felt this book related well to everyday life for many people and the issues we all deal with like finances, jobs and balancing work and family.
This was a great book and I am glad I had the chance to read it. I would definately recommend this as a must read book. I can't wait to see what comes next and will deinately be interested in reading more from this author. This was such a great debut novel and I highly recommend it. Since I'm supposed to disclose in my review that I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads I will but I would like to state that it in no way impacted my review on the book because if I didn't like it I would say so whether it was free or not and I am really glad that I was chosen.
It was hard to put down, but the need of some sleep forced me to I had to go back several pages to retrieve what I had read in pre-sleep!! After reading several chapters, my first thought was John Grisham's "the Firm". That thought stayed with me thought out the book with the added detail of information implants.
These implants could have been a boon to the OneMarket financial business, except for two major things.

One is that there was no testing done with the implants before they were used and the second thing is GREED. If you like techno-thrillers, you will enjoy this one! Highly recommended. I t has been a very long time since I have read such a wonderful dark corporate conspiracy novel.

Now if we forward to recent times Scott Sigler publised the brilliant Infected which contained not only a great story the central character Perry being infected by an alien virus but made terrific use of horror and dark humour with a splattering of SF. The Genesis Code is an equally "edge of the seat" unputdownable read.
Yes I know that lots of reviewers use this idiom but The Genesis Code is a worthy recipient of this accolade. It is a fast paced story, that never lets up, has a great list of both good and bad characters, excellent plot and a very satisfying conclusion. Mark Weston is starting a new job at OneMarket, the premiere worldwide provider of global trading solutions guaranteeing to their clients that there will never be any "downtime" and that computer "gremlins" are a thing of the past oh right Mark needs this job because his wife Sheila is in fear of Altzheimers Disease her father died of the disease and their finances are non existant.
This is the answer to Mark and Sheilas prayers, the only problems seems to be that he will be expected to "sell his soul" to OneMarket in return for all the cash and incentives.
The entrepreneurial head of OneMarket Simon Harris has acquired some cutting edge technology known as "The Genesis Code" an invasive technology which offers the ability to plant information in an employees brain, a truly machiavellian concept and a dangerous tool in the hands of a twisted mind Downloading technical information specific to their jobs was one thing, but how long would it be before less benign uses came along?
Mind control, behavioral adjustments, attitude shifts. If Harris didn't mandate them he was sure Tyler would test them out in his newfound pool of human lab subjects" Mark is a recipient of the genesis code together with a fellow worker and the result, you will not be surprised to know is catastrophic Will Mark be saved from the evil clutches of Harris and Taylor?
Will the lovely Sheila get her man back along with a few badly needed dollars? Will the bad boys get their just rewards? There is however one incident which I puzzle to understand and question if it added value to the story. Mark on his first day meets Toni Hanson, Manager of New Recruits, a rather cold, crisp, bloodless strikingly beautiful lady. At a later stage in the book, and feeling somewhat neglected by Sheila, Mark and Toni have a brief impulsive affair.
There is no further mention of this incident, and no one is ever aware that it happened Apart from this rather strange episode The Genesis Code is more than worthy of 5 stars, an amazing first novel from Lisa von Biela and I look forward to her future publications.

When Mark Weston accepts a position at a well-known company in an attempt to provide a secure future for his wife, Sheila, who is troubled by her family medical history, he understands the challenges he faces But, Mark believes the sacrifices will be worth it, and that he can achieve financial independence within a few years This one is a slick techno-terror tale about a young couple who are unwittingly drawn into a nightmarish scenario.
But, Mark believes the sacrifices will be worth it, and that he can achieve financial independence within a few years. What Mark doesn't know is that he is about to become a human test subject for a device designed to create the perfect work force I won this book as a Goodreads first read.
This book,a high-tech thriller, takes the reader into the corporate world of OneMarket - where the work schedule is nearly inhuman - but the rewards, well, let's just say, are beyond most people's wildest dreams. Mark Weston needs this job to pay off a huge medical debt and get his and his family's life back on track.
Even though he has very serious doubts, he joins this world. He soon finds himself an unwilling and unaware participant in a conspiracy I won this book as a Goodreads first read. He soon finds himself an unwilling and unaware participant in a conspiracy of corporate greed and med-tech expirementation. I found this to a fast-paced thriller, full of twists and turns. While the writing could have been a bit sharper, I enjoyed it quite a lot.
While this may not be one of my typical reads, it is a very good debut novel from Lisa von Biela. An evil corporation, an egotistical CEO, a mad doctor, human guinea pigs and experiments gone wrong…really wrong. There was some interesting science going on here and the motivations of the characters were drawn out very well, which made the story that much more believable. I enjoyed this one and look forward to more from this author.
I really got drawn in to this story! I could really relate to the characters who doesn't know someone who works too hard, or a company that expects too much from its employees? I liked the technological aspect too; it really made me think about the possibilities - and the potential for abuse - of new technologies. I liked it. The ending could have been a bit stronger, though.
But all in all, it was a good book and I would suggest it as a short read. A real page-turner of a debut novel. Von Biela's chilling premise regarding the possible misuse of technology to control the human brain seems frighteningly plausible. However, the book just didn't really work for me.
It is totally plot-driven and sacrifices a number of other essential story-telling elements just to keep the story moving. I still have no idea where this was supposed to have taken place except that there are bike trails and the mountains are within a 4 hour drive.
Throughout most of the book, although there are refe Von Biela's chilling premise regarding the possible misuse of technology to control the human brain seems frighteningly plausible.
Throughout most of the book, although there are references to a call center and an applications team, it often seems like only about half a dozen people work for this global company housed in a 5 story building. The organization seems incredibly flat - the handful of senior management staff seem to make all decisions and interact directly with the rank and file employees only two of whom feature in the story , which seems bizarre.
I have had this book on my to-read list for a long time and looked forward to my local library finally getting a copy, but sadly, it turned out to be a pretty big disappointment. Apr 29, Alex Sheldon rated it it was amazing Shelves: A corporate office thriller concept that hits all my interest buttons, and Lisa von Biela delivers in the best possible way.
I wouldn't have minded a slightly more drawn-out ending of the 'consequences' and in-depth character fallout, but the author still wraps things up well enough to keep this a solid satisfactory novel. In The Genesis Code , an odious corporate employer seeks to increase worker productivity name a corporation who doesn't and by sharp contrast of the Strand short story: The story begins with protagonist Mark Weston interviewing and accepting a job at tech company OneMarket. Been a while since I've read a novel that begins with a job interview, but I know there's been at least a few since The Shining.The Menagerie.

I liked the technological aspect too; it really made me think about the possibilities - and the potential for abuse - of new technologies. The Apocalypse Fire.
