Basic story. Bernie is a god on a planet of gods. Not all gods can create worlds, but all can own them. 'The Company' makes worlds for the buyer on demand. The buyer has the people of the world he owns grow crops that he collects and then sells in the world of the gods.
One planet is not producing like it should. Bernie is hired to troubleshoot the problem since he has just one a prestigious award which was last won years ago by his now absent father. Bernie is now a celebrity that he did not want to be. Dad returns, people swarm him and he has to focus on fixing a world.
How he goes about it is the big part of the story. Bernie's boss wants Bernie to blink the planet's population out of existence, but Bernie feels that each person there is important. Bernie wants to take time to fix it, but there is a mean person stopping the growing going on and the owner is losing money.
So how will it end. You will have to get the book, but in the end, it is a satisfying result.
This is one of the first young adult book that I have picked up that felt more like what I thought a YA book should be. The writing is fairly clear and there is no sexual innuendo much less sex in it (although there is a kiss or two). In other words, it is safe for all age groups to read.
I recommend it for any people who like the category it falls in. What category you ask? Good question, it has a little time travel, a little fantasy, a little coming of age, and I am sure some other areas as well. You might just like it.
I own a copy of this book that the author gave out as part of a promotion.
This task becomes so much more than a simple who did what and why. Rather, Bernie embarks on a journey that reveals how he feels about himself and the other gods, created beings, his father, and even how his choices affect others. He is slowly meandering to adulthood, growing up by making mistakes and learning from them. He forms ethical stances and faces the challenges of fame. He gets his first kiss and realizes the importance of his friends. How Bernie solves his guid-pepper production problem in this story is perfect, poetic justice at its' finest, and fitting for his beliefs and for the client and Photox's needs.This is Bernie's step into adulthood, and I cannot wait to see what he does next.
I have always been drawn to Bernie. He thinks outside of the box, approaching things in such unique and interesting ways. I admire his courage and commitment to his beliefs. I love that he gets so attached to his assignments. I agree with how he feels about what he creates and love his curious and adventuresome nature in broadening his knowledge of them. That he is slightly dorky, awkward, and frequently gets himself in trouble either by accident or attachment only makes him more relatable.
I loved every moment of this story, reading through it more than once and enjoying it just as much, if not more, the second time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this story to everyone who likes a good adventure story with a pinch of fantasy thrown in for good measure.
