One thought on “Godplayers

  1. The book started promisingly enough, but ended up being something of a disappointment The book opens with Australian, August Seebeck, returning to his great aunt s house after spending several weeks in the bush When he mentions that he s going to take a bath, his great aunt tells him he can t because it s Saturday night According to her, every Saturday night for the last 6 weeks he s been gone, a dead body appears in the bath tub during the night and magically disappears by morning Secretly fear [...]


  2. I would have given this three stars if I hadn t finished it First I thought it felt like a tribute to Zelazny, and was pleased to see in the afterword that it was Good start, suitable mystery and some well paced unfolding of details while our hero goes, WTF on our behalf Lune appears Hero s eyes go boing like a toon, and you know they ll be in the sack within 30 pages Spoiler they are And as others have noted she goes all, ooh You re so RUGGED despite being an umpty year old famous professor of [...]


  3. Some good ideas, and I absolutely loved the whole cellular automata section But I was constantly distracted by OK for a first draft type writing, the seedy atmosphere permanently damaged my delicate sensibilities GenerationSnowflake


  4. This is a pretty good science fiction novel I say pretty good because it starts out great, stays great, and then wimps out in the last 20 30 pages Admittedly, it was late and I will reread that last bit tonight just to be sure it wasn t an instance of Operator Error on the part of a tired reader The concept is that a twenty something Australian medical student named August Seebeck, just home from a six week stint working in the Outback as a jackaroo, is distraught to be told by his dottering gre [...]


  5. This book is well written, fast paced with a good mix of action and dialog It s a funny read with regards to geeks there are references to Sliders the Sci fi show, MOO hyuk hyuk and several other massive multi player online games None of which have anything to do with me personally, but I ve listened to my geek partner play them throughout the years However, the author completely failed to follow through on the female character he created a presumably ancient and powerful Player with a vast unde [...]


  6. Strong on the science, weak on the fiction Barely a novel.This is a good example of an author exploring the what if of a concept to the point there isn t much story left In this case the science is primarily the four level model of a computational cosmos thought up by prof Max Tegmark and lavishly cited in the epilogue But Tegmark s idea is only a way of rationalizing a concept intermittently connected multiverse that has been around for a donkey s years in sci fi Much of the book is less of a n [...]


  7. EVERYTHING about this book was PROBLEMATIC and pointless and also awful It fooled me, the first third I was like well this looks like it s going to be really interesting even though the main POV character is really annoying and I hate him and then by the time I realized it wasn t interesting at all IT WAS TOO LATE This book is supposed to be about the contest of worlds and I literally still don t even know what that s about, and I don t know if that s because it was badly explained or just becau [...]


  8. I m pretty sure this is Broderick s first novel and it shows The writing is confusing at times, with some things poorly explained I feel like the key to great science fiction writing is in fleshing out the details and everyday consequences Besides that, the concept is fantastic, which is why I kept reading The book introduces a man, unaware of his heritage, who finds brothers and sisters existing in alternate worlds They are immortal players in a game, fighting for the universe Sounds a little h [...]


  9. There comes a point with science fiction where you can try too hard to tie it to science fact This book is kind of like that It attempts to reconcile a theory of computational ontology that the universe is one big mathematical equation with a story, and it falls kind of flat I made it through it, but half the time it used so many terms borrowed from physics, math and philosophy that it was basically gibberish I think I skimmed it rather than read it as a result Won t be looking for from Broderi [...]


  10. The plot and characters were fantastic, but the book ended suddenly without tying up a ton of unresolved plot elements How did his people come to be Who the heck are the fighting and why Etc The only two things I felt were resolved adequetly were his love interest and where his parents had been Great writer, but the ending on this one missed for me.


  11. It started very good, so engaging and fun and mysterious but it got old fast by page 200 it seems like they ll never explain what s going on i barely wanted to keep reading but since no book is left unfinished , i did
