Top Customer Reviews
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!
**I received a this book as a gift, in return for my honest review**
Zeus (real name Supo) is a resident of present-day Nigeria. His father died recently after running up large debts in online stock trading. Zeus assumed his father's debt, and, as a math genius, is able to do something about it. Along with a few friends around the world, including Dido, a female Ph.D. computer student from California, Zeus comes up with Razor Sharp. It's supposed to be your average stock picking program, until it develops a mind of its own.
A glitch in the program allows it to go into aggressive mode, hacking into more and more computers, looking for processor power. Among them are computers best left alone. Zeus and Dido (who impulsively flies to Nigeria to meet Zeus) find themselves on the run from anonymous people from an unnamed organization, the sort of people who have no problem with killing anyone who gets in their way. Do Zeus and Dido escape? Is there any way to shut off Razor Sharp, or, at least, slow it down? Does Razor Sharp have any other value than in the financial world?
This is a first-rate piece of writing. It's high-tech, it was written by someone who certainly knows their way around present-day Nigeria, it's got action and a bit of romance. Someday, Nigeria will be known for more than just religious violence and spam e-mails. This novel may help. It's worth reading.
