Product Description

Review

Biblical is such a clever thriller, with science fiction and apocalyptic colours, but it is also hugely entertaining and well-written. One of my most memorable reads of the year. (For Winter Nights)

'Biblical isn't just entertainment, it's a philosophical study and all-round learning experience' The Compulsive Reader. (Compulsive Reader)

'Such a clever thriller, with science fiction and apocalyptic colours, but it is also hugely entertaining and well-written. Definitely one of my top reads of the year so far, I didn't want it to end and I'll read it again. For winter nights' A bookish blog. (A Bookish Blog)

'Michael Crichton meets The Matrix ... From compelling start to fiendish end-twist, this mind-bending book will have you wondering if you are reading it, just imagining you're reading it, or indeed whether someone else is imagining the whole damn thing for you' Daily Mail. (Daily Mail)

'Kept me guessing all the way to its mind blowing climax. It is an intelligent, imaginative, addictive, apocalyptic thriller that kept me reading well into the early hours. Definitely my favourite this year' SJ2B House Of Books. (SJ2B House Of Books)

'Once in a while a different kind of novel comes along and changes your entire perspective.Biblical is one of those novels ... the most compelling and intelligent thriller I have read for years. 5 out of 5' Crimesquad. (Crimesquad)

'Thought provoking, stunning read and one I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who can appreciate a damn good story that not only entertains but also makes you look at the world around you in a whole new way' Liz Loves Books. (Liz Loves Books)

“I’ve seen the answer, the truth, Father. And it’s a big, big truth. A truth so big and beyond the imaginings of your tiny superstition that you’re incapable of understanding it.”

What if scientists developed a way to create a virtual representation of neural activity, of a human brain – a complete computer-generated simulation capable of thought. What if people worried that such scientific developments could lead to a Singularity, where artifical intelligence could overwhelm our own. But there’s no danger … is there? It begins with the staring – people stopping mesmerised by something only they can see; the suicides – WE ARE BECOMING.

This is a great, rollercoaster of a book – the world seems in danger somehow from people who are experiencing visions, or are they hallucinations? We see these experiences as some people around the world ‘live’ through them – and we see the ‘real’ world from the perspective of John Macbeth, a psychiatrist working on a large scientific project in Denmark. What we know, what we experience, what we believe, what we can really point to as truth is torn apart in this book which spans the globe and the ages.

This book is absolutely gripping and a great read. I truly did not see the ending coming; this is one of those books that as soon as you think you know how it is going to pan out, it changes course entirely, throwing the reader into a new path of discovery – brilliantly conceived, wonderfully written and put together as a mind-trap for the unwary reader, this is a great book. Christopher Galt, the author is apparently a pseudonym for an acclaimed thriller author, Craig Russell. I look forward to reading more of his works.

Very very ordinary. The prose is unremarkable at best, bloody awful at worst. A sequence with giant insects attacking a woman should have been terrifying but was pretty ho hum. The "twist" is both predictable and unoriginal and leaves huge holes on the entire internal logic of the novel. I won't be reading any more by mr Galt (or indeed Mr Russell). I need to stp writing this review before I dock it yet another star.

I bought this as the reviews had me intrigued. I enjoyed the first part and then found myself Biblically bored about half way through and very nearly gave up. I got fed up with the introductions of new characters for them to have an hallucination - it was clear people were hallucinating and those hallucinations were becoming ever more real and they actually got in the way of the story progressing for me - the book could have been half its length. The characters also lacked depth for me and could have been taken much further. I'm not a science nerd or especially intelligent (I did find some of it a bit over my head) but even I had worked out how this would finish before the end - so Biblically disappointing as well.

Ever read a thriller that changed the way you look at the world? Biblical did that to me. It is an extremely engaging thriller build on science and philosophy that makes you question the things you take for granted - time, life, reality and the very world we live in.
