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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does anybody know where is Lukas? 4 Sept. 2013
By Rebecca of Troy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book so much. I was hooked after the firts few pages. Great characters and a gripping plot.
In the Etherian quadrant there is a University that offers the class of "world simulation". It is a year-long contest in which each team of two students and an android get to manage a different simulated planet. This class is usually reserved for the highest ranked students. Jem and Kir are the only undergraduated attendees and they are assigned to a little planet that has recently suffered a mass extinction bacause there was no one around during the summer to take care of it.
Jem and Kir differ on how to correctly manage the planet so just when they are starting to work, a couple more of mass exticions occur.
With the help of Sim0ne, the android, and their knowledge, they are able to start making some progress. A few evolutions, the division of the super continent Pangea, and in the blink of an eye, humanity is thriving.
Everything is going smoothly until Kav, Kir's five year-old brother, visits the lab. He accidently spills water on the planet and unfolds a biblical event.
To make a long story short, some of the most well known events of our history happen because of either a decision or a mistake made by the two team members and even little Kav.
Even Superman has a place on this book!

The book also covers some of the personal history of Jem and Kir. Their secrets, their past, their plans for the future.
A secret of Jem is her family background and the fate of her half brother, Lukas.
Hints of his fate are included in some manuscripts that people from Earth wrote induced by messages that Jem put in their dreams. The Bible is mentioned. That part, I didnt really get it. Did I overlook something? Are Lukas' whereabouts hidden in the Bible?

This is an amazing book. Read it, you will not regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner from Jade Kerrion 6 April 2014
By Hillel Kaminsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
How real is our perception of the world? We will never know, but some have suggested that our entire universe may be a computer simulation run by people far in the future. In this humorous novel, by Jade Kerrion, (the author of the Double Helix series - which you should read immediately), Kir and Jem are college students who take a high level and prestigious course in planetary stimulation. Uncertain of what they are doing at first, they cause a few mass extinctions before humans (created in their own image) emerge as the dominant life form. They bungle their way through history, or at least a version of it that contains Superman and X-Men as well as Einstein and Oppenheimer. (Superman was the sole survivor of another world-sim that other students had not managed very well).

I really enjoyed this book and recommend anything by this author
3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. It was entertaining and compelling 28 April 2016

Not bad. It was entertaining and compelling. I think there are some interesting avenues the concepts introduced could lead to, in subsequent novels in the same universe.

This was a very original piece of science fiction. I have been reding a long time and had never come across this scenario and was pleasantly surprised. Would read something else from this author.
