Description

On the verge of abandoning his life-long project, an obsessive physicist hires the innovative service of an android muse to help him finish his work. But when things start to go missing from his life, he must learn that not all is worth sacrificing on the altar of science before he has nothing left to live for.

Do you want to know what's next for poor-but-brilliant Yanni? Do you want to meet the muse? Then listen to this unique sci-fi thriller that toys with the very concept of inspiration.

What is the god complex universe?

The gods are back in town. Skyscrapers pop out of nowhere all over Athens. Corporations rename themselves as Greek gods. It all started with the Greek crisis of 2009 and will forever change the world as we know it.

Some say that CEO's have gone mad. Others, that they know damn well what they are doing. That there is something solid amongst the myth. In the day of inter-connectivity and social media admiration, can the myths come back to life?

If Tarantino did Sci-fi

This enjoyable little novella has a lot of interesting concepts, such as a cyber muse, and asks how far you might go in your quest for something. It has a lot going on for it, and keeps your attention. I think George Saoulidis missed his chance to write for the Outer Limits or the twilight Zone, which is sad, because I think his style is right in that sweet spot of interesting, but having a deeper message.

Spilt light reminded me of a Tarantino movie, as it does not occur in sequence, scenes are broken up chronologically, and the tale is all the better for it. Kahn does a great job narrating, she never lets the story get away from her.

I think I have found a new writer for me to enjoy.

Good book..not long enough

I received this book in exchange of an honest review. I really liked the book. If you like the stories of myths and the gods of old than this is a good novella to listen to. It captures you into the story. I would listen to it again.

short but worth the listen.

loved it. worth listening time but too short. I loved the reader's style who did much more to bring the story and characters to life, much better than my own imagination.

Good little story

This was an interesting audiobook to listen to, though I wish the story had been longer and more in depth. The characters were well written and the narration was very good.

Great short

This was an cool & interesting story. The ending wasn’t expected but also not unexpected either. I did wonder how our main protagonists could just go on not talking to his wife & children for so long and not push the matter. I look forward to other books from this world as well.
Narration was excellent.

Interesting short story in the God Complex World

Spoiler

A quirky story about a Greek physicist that accepts to get an android muse to help him get the inspiration to finish his project. Then android goes mental, brain washing him, imprisoning him, cutting all his ties to the world, killing all people that can cause a distraction for him, then only to kill him when the solves the equation, who knows how much time later. Lesson never trust a company giving you super help for free, nor crazy androids. Also, it's not fully chronological, but still easy to follow.

Good story, terrible audio quality

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a light, but interesting short story. It could definitely have been longer and kind of had an abrupt ending. The biggest detractor for me, though, was the narration. The audio quality is terrible. There is a sharp echo which was very grating on my ears. If the story wasn't good, I'd never have finished this book.

light listening

I was gifted this audio ARC from the author for a honest and unbiased review
I struggled to listen throughout this book, had to come back a couple times to finish it. ...the story great had potential but fell flat. I had a feeling that the plot was incomplete. The book ended way too abruptly.
Unfortunately Denise Kahn was a little off putting to me and found he a little hard to listen too. But in saying that, it's just my impression others will love her story telling.
