Kurzbeschreibung

It is the year 2042. Prisons all over the European Union are bursting at the seams. Hans Schleiman, a criminal psychologist, has developed a new system for rehabilitating prisoners. He proposes that they be housed in virtual reality units where they spend the entirety of their sentence. Schleiman has developed software that aids the Subject’s rehabilitation and he has built a new breed of supercomputer to oversee the process - the Hosts. The UK is the first country to try the scheme and Denver is one of the first of a hundred Subjects to be inserted into the Schleiman Tanks after being mixed up in an armed robbery. His pleas of self-defence are ignored and he is sentenced to twenty-five years in the Schleiman Tank.

Denver wakes up in a lush, green World — alone, and with no idea where he is or what this World might hold.

Elsewhere, on the outskirts of Glasgow City State, Haze, one-time hacker, wakes up in the bowels of a run-down estate. He is blind and destitute after a disastrous job five years before left him eyeless and on the run from the most dangerous men in the country. Haze is given an ultimatum — he either carries out one last job, for which he will have his eyesight restored as payment, or he will be killed.

It is Haze’s task to break into the virtual World that Denver inhabits and retrieve a piece of information that could affect all their lives.

What no-one could prepare for is the very nature of the Host itself, a creature so advanced that not even the people who created it know what it is capable of.

Thrust together, Denver and Haze attempt the impossible, to steal the thoughts of a machine so advanced, so strange, that its very mind is a nightmare. So it is that Haze’s one last job suddenly turns into a fight for survival.

Neither of them can guess what will finally happen when they confront the Host at the heart of its mind, where reality ceases to exist.

It is everywhere but no place . . .

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great concept, well-executed! 1. März 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I almost never buy a book with no reviews but the concept of this one intrigued me. From the first page, this book catches you. The action, and the questions, start immediately. For the low price I paid I was happy not to see any spelling or grammar errors to detract from the story. This one is a true hidden gem... do yourself a favor and buy it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A MUST Read!!!! 28. Mai 2012
Von AtticusBookman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It took me about a week to get through this novel but MAN was it worth it. This has got to be one of my favorite books that I have read in a while (and I go through two or three books a week).

First off the plot summary: With out giving anything away let me say that the story follows four characters: the creator of universe, the man sent to live in that universe, a computer hacker both physically and emotionally blinded, and a creature made from the pieces of your nightmares. The story begins with Denver being sent into the "hosts" VR world after committing a crime he didn't really want to be apart of in the first place. From there, Denver begins to "live" his life inside the "world". It looks, tastes, and feels like reality but he "knows" that it is not. Now, I am using a lot of quotation marks because this story really messes with your head. What is reality? Is it just our perception because if that is it then being inside a computer playing WOW or Diablo III is the real thing.

One caveat: out of nowhere and for no purpose than I could determine, Foster introduces a group of Christian terrorists in the real world that seem to exist to mock Christianity. As a Christian I felt a bit offended, and I suggest that if Foster does a rewrite to just make them generic terrorists and not alienate 1-2 billion people (which by the way is the correct number of people I suggest to read this book)

I want to write so much more but I am holding back. Everything about this book is great and contains ALL the best elements of AI and reality stories. I really hope that this book is found by the general public and gets all the credit it deserves.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Nice variation of the virtual world theme 26. März 2012
Von Andy Weisner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Nice variation of the virtual reality world theme, wich is explored in quite a few contemporary science fiction novels.
Like most of this novels, it allows the author to mix science-fiction (the main story) with fantasy elements ( the virtual world)
I quite liked this novel, though the end could have been more strong and less fantasy

5.0 von 5 Sternen Really Enjoyed This One 20. Juni 2012
Von Michael Gallagher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was a little different from what I normally read, but the book's description reached out and touched me - I'm glad I picked this one up as it is a solid sci-fi / futuristic tale.

Without having a spoiler, the author does a great job of quickly getting you into the story and into the mind (literally and figuratively) of the main character, and he weaves a pretty good tale with a realistic plot and a little different conclusion than I was expecting. This sci-fi tale is an exception to some of the other sci-fi we have all read in that the technology of the future is believable, and I didn't find myself calling b.s. on what the author conveyed. You may find yourself daydreaming a "what if" with some of the predicted technological advances in terms of what would / could you do not.

I picked this up for free during a Kindle promotion, and as I type this review the book is $2.99. If you enjoy sci-fi, I would highly recommend this one as you will certainly get more than $2.99 of entertainment value!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting theme 16. August 2013
Von Indigo Heat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Kindle Freebie. I picked up this and others on my sweep for free books that aren't from Christian authors (harder than you may think). It was an interesting read. Haze's back story was good, but then he went flat. Denver was likable as was Moses (hmmm?) and Val. Good glitch moment that could explain Christian myth; also part Matrix-y. The Author said he really liked Jensy - I actually found the 'he he hak', or whatever, a bit annoying. He and Cobalt were tossed in early and I was all WTF is this line - but it makes sense later. The dialogue and action were good in spurts, but some more editing would help flesh out this piece. I wonder if Londeners have different grammar rules, but I had a hardish time with some sentence structures. Overall - liked it
