I received Earth-Sim to review as part of Jade Kerrion's Earth-Sim Virtural Book Tour.

How much I enjoyed the book: 10/10
How good the book was: 9/10

There's not really much for me to say about this one so if you want the short review: This is one of the best books I've read recently and I am beyond excited for the next instalment!

But if you're looking for a bit more than that, read on!

The story is unique to anything I've previously read and I can't even emphasise how BIG of a deal that is to me! Once I'd finished reading I was left stunned, wondering what to say and how to categorise what I'd just read. A couple of years ago, I resigned myself to the fact that I will rarely find a book (particularly anything resembling a young adult) capable of actually stunning me; Earth-Sim is one of these rarities.

Once I started, I couldn't stop. I read early into the wee hours until my eyes were forcing themselves shut. As soon as I'd got the minimal amount of sleep and could keep my eyes at least half-open I was reading again! The plot itself is rather complex and takes place in a world in which Earth exists as a primitive simulation planet in a universe amongst many. In contrast, the writing is not complicated. Jade doesn't throw in more science than necessary and even then she explains it all without seeming patronising. Personally, this had the effect of allowing me to feel a lot more familiar with the world (or should I say Galaxy? I've always been a horrible Physicist!) our protagonists live in.

Whilst I fell for the plot within minutes, I'm not as attached to the characters quite yet. Jem and Kir are sweethearts (I need them to be together!!!!

I received this book free to read and review
I am not sure what age this book is pitched at, possibly YA, but it is suitable for all ages. The story works on two levels the pure science fiction where a college competition to produce the most successful simulation of a world is in place. We very soon realise that the simulation is of the Earth, well the title does give a clue, this simulation follows the development of Earth as described biblically and more recent historical events. How this simulation is accomplished is sometimes ingenious and sometimes amusing. In parallel with this is the development of the relationship between the two main characters Jem and Kir and the way they cooperate, and sometimes don't in producing the simulation. Jem has secrets that are slowly revealed which makes the story more interesting. The only thing that spoiled the plot for me is near the end an important character Zekon is introduced and I would have liked to know more as there are a number of loose ends, I don't know if there are more or this is a standalone story, if there are more to come I will certainly read the next one.
