Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The God Wave by Patrick Hemstreet

This novel may be a authentic peek into the future.   Consider the brain operated drones for a moment and how experiments are progressing with the brain operating prosthesis hands.   This book goes a large but not inconceivable step forward in the direction of  the main character in the movie Lucy.   The thesis is the mind can be trained into using more of its potential.

Hemstreet postulated two believable characters in Matt and Chuck.   Matt as a bereaved pragmatic genius and Chuck as a naive near genius.    The two of them interact in a predictable manner for their personalities.  The addition of the team provides the necessary counterpoints to the conflict between those diverse personalities. 

The books premise is both exciting and daunting.   Exciting for the possibilities inherent in greater control of our own brain and daunting for how that control could be co-opted by outside malevolent forces.

This book appears to be the first in a series and it should be a hit series as the book was fast moving, extremely interesting and provides a ray of hope for the future.

I highly recommend it.
