    A technological thriller with an all-too-believable premise, award-winning author Danny Tobey's <span style="font-weight: 600; font-style: italic">The God Game follo five teenagers obsessed with an online video game that connects them to their worst impulses and most dangerous desires.
    They call themselves the Vindicators. Targeted by bullies and pressured by parents, these geeks and gamers rule the computer lab at Turner High School. Wealthy bad boy Peter makes and breaks rules. Vanhi is a punk bassist at odds with her heritage. Kenny's creativity is stifled by a religious home life. Insecure and temperamental, Alex is an outcast among the outcasts. And Charlie, the leader they all depend on, is reeling from the death of his mother, consumed with reckless fury.
    They each receive an invitation to play The God Game. Created by dark-web coders and maintained by underground hackers, the video game is controlled by a mysterious artificial intelligence that believes it is God. Obey the almighty A.I. and be rewarded. Defiance is punished. Through their phone screens and high-tech glasses, Charlie and his friends see and interact with a fantasy world superimposed over reality. The quests they undertake on behalf of "God" seem harmless at first, but soon the tasks have them questioning and sacrificing their own morality.
    High school tormentors get their comeuppance. Parents and teachers are exposed a hypocrites. And the Vindicators' behavior becomes more selfish and self-destructive as they compete against one another for prizes each believes will rescue them from their adolescent existence. But everything they do is being recorded. Hooded and masked thugs are stalking and attacking them. "God" threatens to expose their secrets if they attempt to quit the game. And losing the game means losing their lives.

    Review
    "Tension and turmoil add up to high stakes suspense and a plot that will make you wonder if all this stuff is real. Danny Tobey absolutely kicks butt and takes names in this gem of a thriller." ―Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of the Cotton Malone series
    "Smart, propulsive and gripping, THE GOD GAME is an ambitious thriller and a terrifying examination of what could--and probably already is--happening in the world of artificial intelligence."―Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Run Away
    "The God Game is a fantastic read. I haven't felt this way about a book since Ready Player One. As addicting as any video game I've ever played, I got sucked in from the first page and couldn't put it down. Can't recommend this one enough." ―Ben Mezrich, New York Times Bestselling author of Bitcoin Billionaires and Bringing Down The House
    "THE GOD GAME is a dark, edgy thriller, populated by a vastly appealing cast of teenage underdogs. Danny Tobey has written an unusually smart and provocative novel, a book full of ideas and heart that feels both fantastical and all-too-real at the same time." ―Tom Perrotta, New York Times bestselling author of The Leftovers and Little Children
    "What an amazing achievement THE GOD GAME: a gripping page-turner that kept me up late three nights in a row, rooting for the engaging, wisecracking teen heroes; at the same time a terrifying and weirdly persuasive reverse-engineering of the morality of our present cultural moment. Also a moving and thought-provoking commentary on the relationship between parents' pain and children's achievement. Every time I read the ne now I keep thinking I see signs of THE GOD GAME being played all around us, until I remember that it isn't real (probably). I couldn't put it down." ―Elif Batuman, author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist The Idiot
    "A story that keeps the reader in a constant state of suspense, the book is sure to appeal to SF readers, gamers, and anyone else who enjoys a well-plotted, well-told thriller." ―Booklist
    "Great characters, a novel concept, and scary set pieces." ―Kirkus
    "Fans of AI run amok should relish this one." ―Publishers Weekly

    David Bengu has always stood out from the crowd. His personality and his physique match his nickname, Kubu-Setswana for "hippopotamus"-a seemingly docile creature, but one of the deadliest in Africa. His keen mind and famous persistence have seen him rise in the Botswana CID. But how did he get his start?
    Inauspiciously. His resentful new colleagues are suspicious of a detective who has entered the CID straight from university, skipping the usual beat cop phase. Nearly broke, with no car or wife, Kubu has the support of his parents, but success will depend on self-reliance. He is immediately plunged into investigations at two airports.
    One takes him to the airport near Gaborone where something criminal is going on in baggage claim.
    The other begins at Jwaneng Airport, where a plane bursts into flames. It's the opening move in a brutal heist of stones from the world's richest diamond mine. The robbers die in a...

    As bestselling novelist Amelie Ferrar kno, an affair with a married person is like a work of fiction: a kind of spy story with its rules and customs, negotiations and compromises, and many private rituals.

    At the Edge of Time by Dan Hooper
    Type : epub |
    Size : 6.1 MB |
    English |



    Descirption: A new look at the first few seconds after the Big Bang-and how research into these moments continues to revolutionize our understanding of our universe
    Scientists in the past few decades have made crucial discoveries about how our cosmos evolved over the past 13.8 billion years. But there remains a critical gap in our knowledge: we still know very little about what happened in the first seconds after the Big Bang. At the Edge of Time focuses on what we have recently learned and are still striving to understand about this most essential and mysterious period of time at the beginning of cosmic history.
    Taking readers into the remarkable world of cosmology, Dan Hooper describes many of the extraordinary and perplexing questions that scientists are asking about the origin and nature of our world. Hooper examines how we are using the Large Hadron Collider and other experiments to re-create the conditions of the Big Bang and test promising theories for how and why our universe came to contain so much matter and so little antimatter. We may be poised to finally discover how dark matter was formed during our universe's first moments, and, with new telescopes, we are also lifting the veil on the era of cosmic inflation, which led to the creation of our world as we know it. Wrestling with the mysteries surrounding the initial moments that followed the Big Bang, At the Edge of Time presents an accessible investigation of our universe and its origin.

    Review
    "[An] informed introduction to 'the mysteries of our universe's first seconds'." ---Andrew Robinson, <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">Nature
    "[ At the Edge of Time ]'s enthusiasm for its subject is contagious. From Einstein's theories and Edwin Hubble's discoveries to the Large Hadron Collider, the text presents scientific advancement as an exciting odyssey―if one that is, for the time being, often characterized by questions, to be answered at a future date to the satisfaction of all." <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">---Rebecca Foster, Foreword Revie
    "Hooper takes the reader on a tour of our collective ignorance about the early universe. . . . Science is a messy endeavor, with dead ends and false alarms and backtracking; that can still be an interesting story, and this book succeeds in explaining both what we do know about the universe's origins and what remains unknown." ---Jeff Foust,<span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600"> The Space Review
    "Scientists know precious little about what happened when the universe got its start: many cosmologists think space and time underwent an extremely rapid expansion called inflation, yet this theory raises as many questions as it answers. . . . Hooper takes readers on a mind-bending expedition through these questions and sho how they all connect to the beginning." ---Clara Moskowitz,<span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600"> Scientific American
    "If you're mystified and curious about the mysteries of the Universe, including dark matter, dark energy, and cosmic inflation, and want a unique take on all of these puzzles with a peek behind how science-in-action works, you won't want to miss this book." ---Ethan Siegel, <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">Forbes
    "Beginning with Carl Sagan's Cosmos in 1980, Big Bang books have become a genre that curious readers should check out every few years to keep up with breakthroughs (gravity waves being the latest). They can't go wrong with Hooper's. A lucid account that is neither dumbed down nor overly difficult." (<span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">Kirkus, starred review)

    Review
    "What a journey, from the very birth of the universe to its ultimate future. In accessible fashion, Hooper's book does a great job explaining the fundamental la of physics and showing how they play out in cosmic evolution." ―Sean Carroll, author of<span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600"> Something Deeply Hidden: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Spacetime
    "At the Edge of Time is a gripping tale of the monumental discoveries and unsolved mysteries in cosmology. Well-written and exciting, Hooper's book leads us from the early days of Einstein to the puzzles of the modern era, as well as through the author's own adventures in the search for answers. He lays out these challenges in a way that will inspire a future generation of young scientists." ―Katherine Freese, author of <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">The Cosmic Cocktail: Three Parts Dark Matter
    "At the Edge of Time clearly and cogently lays out our current understanding of the very early universe, and the prospects for future progress. In one particularly exciting section, Hooper describes the process of identifying and studying a candidate dark matter signal from the perspective of its discoverer. This is a fascinating first-hand account of an ongoing scientific debate." ―Tracy Robyn Slatyer, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
    "Where Weinberg's The First Three Minutes left off, Hooper's At the Edge of Time picks up. A riveting tour of modern cosmology told by one of its savviest guides, Hooper's book takes us on a journey from our universe's formerly inscrutable past to mesmerizing possible scenarios in its far future. A fascinating story that is to be savored." ―Brian Keating, author of <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">Losing the Nobel Prize: A Story of Cosmology, Ambition, and the Perils of Science's Highest Honor
    "This book convincingly guides readers through some of the hottest topics in modern physics and astronomy: Big Bang theory, dark matter, dark energy, and gravitational waves. Bringing a fresh perspective, Hooper effectively captures the feelings of the community of scientists working to solve the greatest mysteries and demonstrates that a scientific revolution might be around the corner." ―Gianfranco Bertone, author of<span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600"> Behind the Scenes of the Universe: From the Higgs to Dark Matter
    "A clear and engaging tour of the mysterious birth of our universe, At the Edge of Time will keep you at the edge of your mental seat." ―Daniel Whiteson, coauthor of <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">We Have No Idea: A Guide to the Unknown Universe
