  • Nice enjoyable read

    A nic story. Thought provoking. Enjoyable. Im not sure why but i thought it was a sweet book. I think it might have to do with the polyans personalities. Other than the obvious ones they were sweet and enjoyable to bearound. I hope the second book is in the kobo store.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Truly original premise- loved it

    Mr.Leek has created a one-of-a-kind-original. I daresay you would be hard pressed to find another work that is remotely along the same lines. The fast-paced 2 stories in 1 which is really 3 in 1 is the best way to hook readers into turning the page. I assume due to the (very) abrupt ending there are more instalments forthcoming. What will be the fate of the renegade worker Polyans? Will Le-Ma be as just as Sa-ma? Will Dana’s arrest force the government’s hand against the project? Can we trust that Australian billionaire? For the colony!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Spheria

    Interesting concept. Took me a little while to get used to the switching back and forth but overall a very interesting story. I would be interested in reading a sequel as I am invested now.

  • A must if you like simulated worlds.

    I read Dan Galouye's Simulacron 3 in the sixties, and it fascinated me. I think it was the first book on simulated universes, and the theme does that to a lot of people, as witnessed by the success of Matrix, and the number of books about simulation games. Spheria also belongs to that theme. Though I may have disliked various details, I think it makes an important and original contribution because it tries to simulate a world with different and simpler physical laws. If not perfect - it is a rather ambitious goal - it is well designed, both convincing and amusing, and also thoughts provoking. To be interesting, the Spheria world has to contain sentient life that tries to understand it. Of course, these beings, not human, cannot be evolved from the local, somewhat simplistic physical laws, and their intelligence and awareness comes from AIs that are external to the simulated world. But it matters little. After all, man has ignored for millenia where it came from, why it was intelligent and aware, and how it related to the surrounding world. And to a too large extent, that is still the case today. One of my best criteria for books interest is whether I remember them a few months after reading them. It is definitely the case for this one. I just saw the title tonight, by chance, and thought it had been a good read several months ago, and I owed it to the author, and to SciFi readers, to write a review. This book may be unique in the way it approaches the theme -- please tell me if you know of other similar ones -- but may provide a spark for other similar stories. The closest I know is Flatland, but it is done in a rather different spirit, if I remember well, being both a social satire and an exploration of the geometrical dimensions. I hesitated between 4 and 5 stars. The creative side definitely deserved a 5.

    Thanks for your feedback!
