We abandoned privacy and turned databases into something like gods. They listened to our prayers. They met our needs and blessed us with new riches. They watched over us, protected us, and punished the wicked among us. We almost made a paradise. But there were those who tried to hide from the databases' all-seeing eye. They used their wealth or power or intellect to turn t ...more

This book left me somewhat ambivalent; throughout and at the end. Don't get me wrong, my heart pounded during the intense scenes and the book was definitely a page turner - but it wasn't exactly a satisfying, pleasurable read. I was surprised by my reaction, given that I loved another book I read by Pogue (Taming Fire), and Gods Tomorrow was even more highly rated on both Amazon and Good Reads. But it felt like the inferior book - as if, in Taming Fire, Pogue was starting to warm up to being a r ...more

I'm partway through this book on my second read. I'll write a full review afterwards, but right now I just want to say a bit about how the author handled blending a rich and fascinating sci-fi world with the easy read of a fast-paced thriller. Don't worry, no spoilers here.

Aaron Pogue's unique, near-future sci-fi world inspires you to want to know more about it. Usually, fantasy and sci-fi authors with this sort of fascinating setting spend a lot of time telling about it to get their readers ful

The beginning is a bit slow and the only reason I understand most of the technical jargon because my husband is in software development. However, the characters drive the plot forward, and by at least a quarter of a way through the book, I was devouring every page to find out what happened next. It is really well written, and his setting is definitely plausible. I can see his future becoming our future very soon. All in all, great read!
Short, fast paced crime technothriller. Looking forward to reading the other books inthe series.

This holds the distinction of being the first book I ever read on my Kindle. But enough about me.

Basic plot (spoiler free!): Katie Pratt is a recently hired FBI Agent, and newest members of a unit called Ghost Targets. In the futuristic world the author creates, a super-advanced surveillance system called Hathor watches the entire world. Originally designed to just function as something not so different from our favorite apps on our smartphones today, within years it became so good at watching e
Goodreads Description- We abandoned privacy and turned databases into something like gods. They listened to our prayers. They met our needs and blessed us with new riches. They watched over us, protected us, and punished the wicked among us. We almost made a paradise.

But there were those who tried to hide from the databases’ all-seeing eye. They used their wealth or power or intellect to turn themselves into ghosts within the endless archive. For years these ghosts have used their anonymity to p

A very interesting book taking place in the not so distant future as Hathor and Hippocrates see and hear everything we do. Need a new apartment, Hathor will find one and put it on your tab. Doors will open automatically as it senses you are approaching. Need to make a call. Hathor call Dad. How about in distress, Hippocrates will know you need help and send it to you. This is the world of Gods Tomorrow and our heroine Katie Pratt. It's an intriguing and somewhat terrifying future world. The writ ...more

I read very little fiction, but I’m glad I read this book. The author sets the story in a high-tech, near-future world. The FBI-drama story-line is engaging. I found myself constantly eager to see what happens next.

At the same time, the book prompted me to think about some real issues related to the use and development of technology in our world. What is the proper role of technology? How intrusive should it be? Are the conveniences worth the loss of privacy? What spiritual implications might t
Free ebook on Kindle but was not titled Gods Tomorrow but Surveillance.
Not a type of story I would usually read. I like mystery and thriller and scifi which this is all three rolled into one. I'm giving two stars because I'm just not sure of the main character, Katie.
It is an interesting premise and not set in the far off future but in the not so distant future. It is kinda scarey. The characters just left a bit to be desired but were still interesting to a point. Might give the second book a t
I was surprised at this story. It begun with a struggle and I almost gave it up for being too technical. But for some reason I kept on going, wanting to read something different and this book really shocked me at how much I actually liked it.

The story moves forwards quite nicely especially after you get yourself accustomed to the future technology. The main character was very humane and I liked her.

It was a fun read and would recommend it to others too.
Good concept, but I guess it would have seemed more original had I read it when first published. Unfortunately the subject of heavy surveillance in society (and the avoidance of), has become mainstream and negated a lot of what would have been unique story lines. Still a good read, and I'll probably pick up others in the series to see what other story lines have to offer.
Brilliant book! A classic cop action story but set in a world where there is near perfect surveillance. Thanks to technology. I absolutely loved this book. The descriptions of the technology and the implications on the real world are just familiar & believable enough to make give a lot of food for thought. Looking forward to reading more books by this author.
A very fun book set in a very fun world -- with total surveillance by automated systems that is aimed at making like safe and convenience. The characters do come to life and I want to follow what happens with them. The plot is also believable, which is - funnily enough - important for good scifi.

I am really looking for more books in the series.
Wasn't sure I would like this one - it was a little too futuristic for me; however, the more I read the more into the story I got. There was plenty of action, good character development and a few twists that kept it interesting. I give this one 4.5 stars.
Pleasant sci-fi book with well crafted and believable future tech. However the characters seemed too naive and I found the whole thing rather predictable. Read as kindle version (called "Surveillance")

An interesting story. New , nothing like anything i have read before. Well written, good character development. I would recomend to a friend of police mysteries.
This is an interesting and fast paced techno-thriller, enjoyed it. will read others in series.

Interesting concept. Kept me reading to the end. Love the use of Egyptian mythology.
