Adam by James Bushill {4 Stars}

Adam by James Bushill is a sci-fi thriller with a twist on the idea of artificial intelligence and a whole lot of action. I was excited by the prospect of a sci-fi inspired by Frankenstein and loved the futuristic world portrayed in this story right away. While I wished for a bit more discussion about why Adam chooses to do what he does, I heartily enjoyed reading this indie and definitely recommend it.

2101. The asteroid Metis. A runner jogs along a silent tunnel, tracked by a pool of light. Then there’s a noise, a low rumble, and in the distance, another light, which becomes two headlights moving fast, the lights of an enormous mining truck. Its cab is completely empty.

Ten years earlier, Victor and his wife created Adam, the world’s first biological supercomputer. They dreamed of changing the world.

Now, Victor sleeps alone in a hospital corridor in the pollution-shrouded city of Missoula, Montana, his dreams in tatters.

He doesn’t think his life could get any worse.

But then he’s forced to return to Metis.

And when that mission becomes a desperate fight for survival amid the dark tunnels of the abandoned mine, he must finally confront the terrifying consequences of his past actions.

Updates from the Lair

Updates from the Lair is my weekly wrap-up post that includes what happened in my real life, what I’ve been reading, my posts from the week, and what I’m thinking about reading next week (and would love your advice on!). 

Yey, it’s April! Though we just got a ton of snow, like literally six inches in a day…. There go the bulbs that had been poking up :(. I’ve had a pretty normal week, prepping for the summer class and getting another draft of my dissertation proposal together. I haven’t had a lot of reading time, but enjoying what I’ve had :). I have a new video on the booktube channel too, linked at the bottom!

My Week

Half LostI started the audiobook of Half Lost this week and am loving it. This trilogy is pretty darn dark, but not more than I can handle for some reason haha. Things are off to a great start and my love of Gabriel is never ending.

AdamI also have started Adam and am almost done! I’m really glad Bushill reached out to me about this book since it’s one of those hard-to-find high-quality indie books. It’s a sci-fi thriller inspired by Frankenstein and is pretty much all action. I’m pretty sure Bushill is looking for bloggers willing to review Adam, so look him up if you are looking for something to review!
