Publisher's Summary

Lord of the Flies meets a corporate retreat in this thought-provoking psychological thriller. When 11 rising-star managers attend a mysterious leadership conference in a secluded luxury lodge, they do not anticipate the twisted mind games that await them. As the group exercise progresses rapidly from a friendly election to a dangerous web of no-holds-barred power plays, the players don't realize that soon some of them will be facing the harshest challenge of their lives. The unconventional workshop is about to take a very dangerous turn, testing values and characters of its participants in the most brutal ways and presenting them with the ultimate question: how high a price are they willing to pay for power?
If you enjoy closed-room battle of wills stories like 12 Angry Men or cautionary tale books that delve deep into the nature of power like 1984, Awakening is a novel for you.

Misleading synopsis

This is the first time that I have listened to a book by this author and it will definitely be the last! I persevered because I thought it must have a killer twist somewhere but sadly not. I found the synopsis very misleading and the story boring to say the least. Unfortunately, the story wasn't improved by the narrator's monotonous voice. I was relieved to get to the end but I am left asking myself; 'what was the point of this story?'
