Description

The world runs on ARCs. Altered Reality Chips. Small implants, behind the left ear, that allow people to experience anything they ever imagined. The network controls everything, from traffic, to food production, to law enforcement. Some proclaim it a Golden Age of humanity. Others have begun to see the cracks. Few realize that behind it all, living within every brain and able to control all aspects of society, there exists a being with an agenda all his own: the singularity called Adam, who believes he is God.

Jimmy Mahoney’s brain can’t accept an ARC. Not since his football injury from the days when the league was still offline. ARC-incompatible is what the doctors told him. Worse than being blind and deaf, he is a man struggling to cling to what’s left of a society that he is no longer a part of. His wife spends twenty-three hours a day online, only coming off when her chip forcibly disconnects her so she can eat. Others are worse. Many have died, unwilling or unable to come offline to take care of even their most basic needs.

Jimmy can see what is happening, and when he learns the truth about Adam, he is thrown into a life-and-death struggle against the most powerful mathematical mind the world has ever known. But what can one man do against a being that exists everywhere and holds limitless power?  How can one man, unable to even get online, find a way to save his wife, and the entire human race, from destruction?

4.5 stars

I received this from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

4.5 stars.

This was quite good, and is quite possibly an intense allegory for the lives “lost” to social media like Facebook, Instagram, and all the rest. I was actually talking with some friends about this very thing just a few hours before I saw this book on Edelweiss.

At any rate, this book was well-written and quite believable. In the near future, a virtual world is created that is controlled by a malevolent being inside this world, and just like every dictator that has ever lived, he becomes paranoid at the thought of any other being with the potential to take control.

This was a quick read, and quite a enjoyable. Glad I found this one, and I highly recommend it!

Gripped from the start

Having only just discovered this author, I’m very much impressed with attention to detail within this book.
Like most technical advances scientists often come across them by accident and this ARC is no exception. With implants into the human brain you can almost live the perfect life, as I just said almost. What if you couldn’t have the implant and you lose everyone you have ever cared about and loved ?
This book had me gripped right from the start and couldn’t put it down.
