Not everyone thinks so. It was voted out of one reporter's house (after two weeks) in a Washington Post story last week. It's a good, fun read that will make you think.
And if you are still persuaded that you want it, check out The Store by James Patterson (and a co-author). The book, which I read with fascination in Hawaii last week, is a thinly disguised story about Amazon, which has a heck of lot of power over us today – and knows way too much about us. It has gotten downright creepy. The novel takes that concept much farther, spinning it into a futuristic nightmare of control. While the book does not constitute great literature, it sure made me think carefully about how much I wanted to embrace Amazon in technology which would run my house.
Oh, and by the way, the Amazon Key has already been hacked. There was a fix (sort of), but I think I am keeping control of my house out of Amazon's hands.
