Product Description

About the Author

Professor Leonard is author of over two hundred wide ranging scientific papers, which include a technique now used to safeguard the ozone layer. Lifelong fascinations have been science, religion and the future. These interests were combined in a series of novels, now revised and re-printed, whose titles included The Nostradamus Inheritance, Omega and The Legacy of the Shroud. The novels were well received worldwide, and even found translation into Japanese and Hindu. Professor Leonard has appeared frequently on radio and television to discuss the boundaries between science and religion, and gave the Cardinal Newman Lecture at Oxford University in 1986. More recently he has published a collection of poems, entitled Pearls Along The Path.

I was intrigued to pick up this book after reading other kindle books by the same author. Like all the rest it does not disappoint. The story moves at a brisk pace with plenty of action. Unlike some books of its genre it has no random plot variations and this lets you really empathise with the characters. If you wish to see the future before it happens then this is the book to read. The scene is the not too distant future, with a world on the brink of collapse. Population, pollution, resource depletion and arsenals of hideous arms are the order of the day. So what avenue might exist for survival? In this book the answer lies in building a computer of epic proportions and gargantuan intellect. But should OMEGA be turned on? Here the writer makes full use of his acclaimed scientific background in a chilling scenario with three dimensional characters who carry the plot to its riveting end. Normally I can predict how a novel will wind up but not this one. Yet on a second reading everything is consistent with the fate that man inherits. This book is a masterpiece of its genre and I recommend it to everyone interested in what may lie ahead. I can't wait to see a film version made!

Oh dear what a shock to come down to this from the excellent works of Ian Hocking and Richard Phillips. Sorry, I don't like to belittle someone's work but really when I got to the line 'United Nations Resolution 666' that was enough. The plot is just silly, obviously American and seemed to be carrying some underlying evangelistic message. I got to about Chapter four but the narrative was just so juvenile it made me laugh, sorry not worth the time for me.

CAUTION>>>>SPOILERS AHEAD>>>>
Loved the idea that this book delivers,easy to read.
The ending thou I thought could have been fleshed out a bit more,as it seems to come to an abrupt end!( still a good ending ) Would have liked to see it with a bit more "battle of the minds" between omega and the characters, as it seems it took alot to get to that point but then nears the end.
Enjoyable read and I would /will read more of his books.
as i said i think it could have been taken forward from the end a bit more ,with a look see into the first 1-2 years after,if only a brief description of events.
having said that i say its very much worth a read and a very interesting Idea that we all face in the not to distant future...
