Official Summary: “The world runs on ARCs. Altered Reality Chips. Small implants behind the left ear that allow people to experience anything they could ever imagine. 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.” – Goodreads (Blurb is longer)
Review: I didn’t really know what to expect going into this. Glad I did give it a shot. The story was unique and fresh. Giving a new spin on the whole AI genre in Sci-fi. The story was grey, yes what Adam was, wasn’t all good or all bad. He may be using people but at the same time, he stopped a lot of things. Starvation, crime, helped with pollution and so on. With being a computer, he just didn’t care about single beings. Saying all that though, you still wanted to see him eat it.
You didn’t really get to know the characters all that much. It too fast-paced for that, everything happens really quickly. You get a sense of who they are as people, that’s about it.
