Book Description

Turning his passion for philosophy into a career was meant to be a defining moment for Julian. At a young age, he’d become a lecturer at a prestigious university. But Julian’s life hasn’t worked out as planned, and soon he finds that the only reprieve from his humdrum existence is the intellectual debating that takes place in his lectures. When Julian receives a mysterious email that promises change — something he has long desired — he finds the offer impossible to refuse. All he has to do is play The Game and play it by its rules. Julian quickly learns that when the rules of The Game are broken, penalties apply. People around him are murdered and his own life is thrown into jeopardy. He discovers that a secret organisation, The Philosophers’ Society, is behind it all. They’re experimenting with people’s lives and they’re after something powerful. Thrown together with one of his students, the alluring Isabella, Julian finds an unlikely ally in the deadly game. Together they find themselves on the run from The Philosophers’ Society and its sadistic killer Isaiah.

5.0 out of 5 stars Are we losing our humanity? October 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
On the surface, this is a fast thriller designed to shock and enthral the reader and take them on an unexpected journey. A secret society, sadistic killers, a beautiful girl that holds her own - this story has plenty to keep you on the edge of your seat. But if you dig deeper you will discover a complex story with conflicting characters and what they believe life is about. In a quest to better ourselves, The Philosopher's Game alludes to the question - are we losing our humanity?

5.0 out of 5 stars Game on.... October 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The second heart-pounding thriller from this author moves like a bullet from page one right to the end. It's a game, but in the same way as the Game of Life ... Expect thrills and spills and a narrative arc that pulls you through at pace. Top notch.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Celestine Prophecy's evil twin April 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
'The Philosopher's Game' is a good time waster, just like most thrillers meant to be. Author' writing style needs a little polishing in couple of follow troughs but otherwise plot line moves smoothly. I was engrossed enough not to notice any editing mistakes.

Young philosopher Julian muddles through his life wishing himself into nonexistence. An arrival of email, inviting Julian to participate in 'The Game', promises to provide a bit of excitement. Conspiracy, murders and mayhem follows.

This book is a Frankenstein of ideas. Author had chosen basic premiss from 'The Celestine Prophecy' of universal conscience, added (very little of) philosophical debate, sprinkled it with horror and ta-da! modern magician is born.

If you loved 'The Celestine Prophecy' and its message of spiritual unity and love, you will hate the way author twisted them in here. Also, you may find that a horror part of the book gives you nightmares.

If you love chiller-thriller and looking for a protagonist who can dish out serious 'ass kicking', you will find Julian and his 'ass kicking' abilities very disappointing indeed. It required complete suspension of disbelief on my part to make an action hero out of a philosopher.

Julian may have gone through the transformation and learned to do some amazing things, but book finished just after he got his momentum going. We are left to wonder on possibilities (and possible sequel).

Global Conspiracy of faceless and far-reaching Them boiled down to a few local psychos. They methods are if not thought, then certainly chill-provoking. Most of us will find an idea of someone tinkering with our minds repugnant. But manipulations on global level? Again, maybe in the sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its not just a game October 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second book published by Steve and I have thoroughly enjoyed them both. Fast moving, interesting, thought provoking. The Philosopher's Game is something we have all dreamed about at one time or another when we ask ourselves "is this all there is?" "are we just living or is there something out there controlling our lives?". This book takes us on a thrilling journey as an answer to those questions. I am looking forward to the next exhilerating expedition from Steve Jovanoski in the future.
