Mrs Smith Reads A Hologram for the King by Dave Eggers, #CBR5 Review #16

Hologram King

Alan Clay is waiting for the King. He’s waiting in the Saudi compound of KAEC (King Abdullah Economic City) to make a huge presentation in hopes of securing a massive IT contract for his employer, and he’s going to be there for quite a while. Sounds riveting doesn’t it? A Hologram for the King, the novel, is about life, the universe and everything, albeit on a very compressed scale. The story though is quite human-sized—small, tired, overwhelmed and a little bit pathetic.
