A fun read but lacking in many aspects Here is a breakdown of my ratingEnjoyability 35Re Readability 2Character Development 2Complexity 25Writing Style 3Believability 15Overall 242This book is a cross between Dan Brown s Digital Fortress and David Baldacci s Simple Genius with possibly a bit of the Star Trek Episode Spock s Brain thrown in While I considered the book a rather enjoyable read it lacked considerably in the areas of character development plot originality and especially believability If the book were classified as science fiction then I may have given it a slightly higher rating but it wasn t Having a couple degrees in computer science it was not easy for me to ignore the fallacies behind the scientific principals in the bookIn the areas of character development the book was below average not necessarily because it lacked sufficient depth into the characters backgrounds but because the characters were shallow predictable and not original There was very little to make the reader really relate to or connect with any character It was also hard to believe the two main characters repeatedly escaped death despite a world class force pursuing them absolutely no insight was provided into the characters that would explain the source of couragebraverycunningtactical proficiencyI also was not overly impressed with the writing style as it was not descriptive enough when it came to both people and the surroundings The reader had a decent picture painted of the events taking place but not so much the people or the places involved Greg Iles also used a techniue in this book where time suddenly jumps forward then the character goes back and explains what happened in the gap I would have not minded this if it had added anything of substance to the story however it did notIn conclusion I still would recommend this book but don t expect much from it other than a uick fun read when you just want to kill some time

I m a programmer by trade I m happy to report that for a book with a computer at its core I found Footprints of God pleasant to read Unfortunately authors often mangle even the most basic aspects of computing which I have a hard time ignoring But Iles kept things firmly in the theoretical and therefore avoided too many cringe worthy mistakesThere was one other red flag I found myself raising an eyebrow every time the main character would experience a religious vision The visions seemed wildly out of place in the context of the themes and story But curiosity got the better of me and the pace was fast enough that I plowed through them with little difficulty Books have done far worse than elicit a where the heck is this going response from meIn the end despite having a pretty standard international chase seuence with our hero and his special lady friend finding love against all odds of course I was surprised to find that the book was largely philosophical and theological I don t think you have to agree with any of the book s conjectures to follow the internal logic of the fiction And in that respect it all made sense and was uite interesting in the way that any good science fiction isIn fact from a technological perspective as well I think there were a lot of neat ideas I don t necessarily believe some of the basic premises are true For example I m not sure I buy the idea that our brains use aspects of uantum mechanics not just electrical properties to function though I am aware that this is a popular idea As with the philosophy and theology you don t have to actually believe the technological and biological facts presented in the book to enjoy their internal consistency And again I think Greg Iles succeeded in making some plausible conclusions about the world he d createdThe character development and the basic storyline was decent But importantly it was an interesting book and I m glad I gave it my time Bugsy: The Bloodthirsty, Lusty Life of Benjamin 'Bugsy' Siegel president and afraid to trust his colleagues David turns to Rachel Weiss the Inside the Crips: Life Inside L.A.'s Most Notorious Gang psychiatrist African Laughter Four Visits to Zimbabwe probing the nightmares that have West African Folk Tales plagued him during his work at Trinity Rachel is skeptical of Davids fears but when an assassin strikes the two doctors must flee for their livesPursued across the globe by ruthless National Security Agency operatives David and Rachel struggle to Love Me Tender piece together the truth behind Project Trinity and the enormous Stephen Hawking A Biography Greenwood Biographies powe.

    (PDF) The Footprints of God Read & download ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub á Greg Iles This book can be categorized in many genres It most certainly is a thriller with the tension pegged high It could be considered a road novel since the MCs travel a lot by car or plane from the beginning to the end of the story It's crime fiction to be sure since crimes are commissioned and performed yet there is a healthy dollop of science fiction And there is a little mysticism and romance just for the hell of itIles has an amazing knack
