Book Review- Infinity Born - Douglas E Richards

Friday, September 1, 2017

I'm very very glad I don't read the last few pages first--because Douglas E. Richards always lays out what is truth and what is fiction! I will say one thing--a lot of research into scientific ideas is done by this author before he writes the sometimes bone chilling SciFi novels that he does. And this one will send chills up and down your spine just wondering if this could really totally occur!

This one has twists I really did not see coming. Who is real? What is ASI and why is it being sought after by countries and bad guys alike? Who is alive and who is dead?

I stayed up way beyond by usual time to finish this. Yes, it is that good. I'll just be hoping that the scenarios don't all come true--at least in my lifetime!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

When DARPA's billion-dollar program to create Artificial Superintelligence is sabotaged, US operative Cameron Carr is tasked with finding the culprit. He's been on high-stakes missions before, but this time the stakes are nothing less than the future of humanity. Because the race to evolve a superintelligent computer is on, and power players around the world will stop at nothing to get there first.

In the right hands, Artificial Superintelligence could lift humanity to towering heights. But in the wrong hands, this technology could represent the greatest threat humanity has ever seen . . .

Ripped from tomorrow's headlines, Infinity Born is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller that explores the deadly perils and mind-blowing possibilities that await the human race--including both extinction and immortality.

As our phones and computers become ever smarter, Infinity Born takes an unblinking look at a technological tipping point that is just around the corner. One that will have a profound impact on the future course of human history.

"Richards is a worthy successor to Michael Crichton." (SF

"Richards is a tremendous new talent" (Stephen Coonts) who can "keep you turning the pages all night long." (Douglas Preston)

Oh my son would freak out over this book! I on the other hand would have such high anxiety and panic. This sounds like a wonderful book for the SciFi readers.

Sci-fi isn't one of my usual genres but you've certainly picked up my interest with this one, sounds fascinating.

I love reading Sci-fi books. This one does really make you wonder about what is in the future. I will have to share this with my brother who loves reading Sci-fi books and watching the movies. Thanks for sharing a great read.
