All an all it was a great read. I loved the suspense and also, the underlying spiritual and supernatural themes in the story gave it an interesting tone.
The main character Supo (Zeus) was such a beautiful soul, and so thoughtfully written. He was definitely a worthy underdog that you just wanted to continue to root for with every twist and turn.
Although the beginning started out a little slow for me because there were so many characters and ideas, and it was like a jigsaw puzzle putting them all together and figuring out what was going on. In a way it worked because it added to that sense of, curiosity of how everyone was going to play in the grand scheme of things, and when it all came together and the loose ends were tied up it was just brilliant!
Ola Adigun, is a great storyteller and I am looking forward to more great things from him in the future!
The story is action-packed and exciting, with beautiful poetry injected within, and a sweet romance too. Zeus is a great character with real struggles, and the people he meets along the way are each endearing in their own aspects. Most of the story takes place in Nigeria, and the descriptions of places and scenery are very intriguing and make the world come alive.
What was confusing at the start of the novel was how many characters were introduced, and a few switches between points of view. These are minor issues though, and the story really picks up once the other developers behind Razor Sharp are introduced.
Overall, this was a fun novel. Zeus is a well-rounded character who has a lot going for him, and a lot of adversity he had to come up against.
It starts out a little boring, but not for very long at all! I also was rather impressed with the imagination of the author, and the way the story unfolded and was literally described that well, that I could see every single scene! This was truly an amazing feat to accomplish, in my book.
the story is about, Zeus, who created a stock prediction program, Razor Sharp. along with the help of some of his friends. Well, the program begins to have a mind of it's own, and starts hacking into other computers to gain processing power. Unfortunately, the program hacks into a computer of a secret organization, which leads to some pretty suspenseful events when some secret agents come to destroy Zeus.
The story unfolds pretty quick, with such beautiful detail given to all aspects of this story, the places, (it takes place in Nigeria), the people, the characters, I don't think one tiny detail was left out.
Ola Adigun, writes very beautifully, I think the words just spill right out onto the paper with little effort. This was a very good story, filled with action, adventure, suspense, quite a lot of craziness, and a fascinating character, Zeus.
I recommend this book to anybody who enjoys thrillers, suspense, action, adventure, and brilliant books with twists and turns that seriously surprise you and amaze you! The kinds you didn't see coming:)
I am anxious to reading more from this author, as this is right up top on my list of best book ever read!

Author: Ola Adigun
Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could create an ingenious stock market program that trades for you as it predicts trends where you earn hundreds of millions of dollars and where your accuracy rate would be about ninety-seven percent, give or take a two percent error margin. Not bad! And this is exactly what a brilliant nineteen year-old Nigerian third year university math student, Supo Adelaide (also known as Zeus), the protagonist in Ola Adigun's debut novel, Razor Sharp 3.0, accomplished.
He named his program Razor Sharp, however, little did he realize that his creation would become extremely aggressive taking on a life of its own causing a great deal of havoc with some astounding ramifications. Incidentally, if you are wondering why the name Zeus? Apparently, the name made him "bigger and stronger than he actually was."
Early in the novel Zeus informs us that his father died a poor stock broker, and as a result, he was unable to afford the best medical care that might have saved his life. In addition, he left Zeus with a huge amount of debt which he now feels obliged to repay. As he is very creative and addictively drawn to solving problems others give up on, Zeus decides that the only way he will be able to meet his obligations and have some fun in the process is to come up with a software program that will earn him millions of dollars.
To accomplish this feat Zeus enlists the help of a few computer nerds located in various locales of the world including an American woman, twenty-four year old Dido Rupley, whom he falls in love with and who in turn travels from her home in San Diego to Nigeria to track him down.Read more ›
