Book Description

You are probably at home, at work, maybe in a coffee shop reading this book info. Who is reading these words? You hear the voice in your head, but is it my voice? Is it your own voice? Are you sure? Look around you. The other people; what is behind their eyes? What if you are wrong? Maybe you have never worried about this before. Maybe you should start. Scientists, computer experts and the military work in isolation; their motives, some benign, some darker, hidden from one another. Something is going wrong, however, an unknown element, ethereal and subtle is moving amongst them. This could be the future of mankind, or it could be our final chapter.

1.0 out of 5 stars An interesting concept poorly executed. 31 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting concept poorly executed.

I'd have given a 1.5 out of 5 stars, had I been able to. The concept for the plot raises the score, but... Oh, so much 'but'.

The book felt like a draft rather than a finished publication. Each absurdly short chapter screamed 'soundbite generation' as if the author wouldn't give the reader anything longer than two or three pages so as to not overload the attention-span. The book was full of annoyingly intrusive spelling and capitalization mistakes, as well as oddly unnecessary tabs in a few places. It badly needed to be proofread before publication. (This might have fixed some continuity problems and inconsistencies in terminology too.)

Even after building backgrounds and motivations for some of the characters, I felt a complete lack of empathy or identification with any of them. They were shallow, and their behaviour was often implausible.

Possibly the greatest failure that prevented me from enjoying the book was the persistent evidence that very little research had been done; for example, the author showed no understanding of how the police and armed forces actually worked - a prime example of this was a scene involving a Special Constable (I won't mention further specifics so as to avoid it being a spoiler).

The story attempted a degree of cynicism that the author could not deliver, and for a story that was probably meant to be a thriller, it was far too predictable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sci-fi thriller 3 May 2010
Format:Paperback
Picked up this book on a recommendation and it didn't disappoint. The author clearly has a very imaginative mind. The beginning is a little challenging with so many layers in the story however as the characters slowly come together the story picks up pace and keeps you guessing right to the end. Brilliant concept with real, believeable and sometimes gritty characters and the author's background and experience in the science world adds a real sense of realism and possibility to the reading experience. Ultimately the book asks some very interesting questions which means it sticks with you long after you finish reading it. Great debut - looking forward to the next one!

4.0 out of 5 stars A delightful little romp :) 3 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I finally got round to reading this, after a friend recommended it to me some while back, and I certainly wasn't disappointed!

The investigations into conciousness put me in mind of the Namshubs used in SnowCrash, and the delights of Tad Williams' Otherland. There was a host of rounded and believable characters taking part in a well realised and imaginative plot... so yeah, it's a good 'un!

There are a few typos goin' on, but these are few and far between... not so much that it drags you out of the story.

Get it, read it, love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Multi-layered fiction: one to stretch the mind 5 Sept. 2009
By Dollymo
Format:Paperback
This novel reads like a pacey thriller with interleaving characters, scenarios and plot lines - however you have to put your brain in gear - this is not for the idle reader. The author clearly has huge imagination and the plot lines cover science, philosophy, fantasy, out of body experiences and pondering the mind of (a) god. There is enough material for more than one novel on similar themes. I'm looking forward to seeing what else pours out of the author's subconscious.

Format:Paperback
Excellent. This books starts off by introducing lots of engaging well-rounded characters and some interesting biological and computer based sci-fi ideas. As the book progresses all the ideas and people slowly intertwine as the plot snowballs into an ambitious global story. About a third of the way into the novel you realise you are losing sleep and cancelling appointments because you are reading an unputdownable thriller. First time author Matt Hayes should also be commended for writing equally believably and sympathetically from the point of a huge variety of characters. Even the smallest bit-part players feel real. Whether female, male, disturbed or even simian the plots protagonists are nailed with nice back-stories and realistic dialogue. An author to watch.
