3 Platypires for Digital Heretic by Terry Schott.

“Words and truth follow the basic laws of physics. For every truth there is a contradicting lie. If you search for the truth with an open mind, looking at both sides of the story to form your own opinion, you will soon become so confused that you’ll believe anything.”

Digital Heretic is the second book in the Game is Life series. I really liked The Game, the first book in the series and really wanted to know the answers to all the unanswered questions. Terry Schoot has a great ability in pulling in his readers but I felt he did not do the greatest job giving answers. The second book just keeps adding more questions.
I also felt it had more unbelievable moments but I willing to let it slide because of the genre. Normally, I am not a fan of when science fiction mixes with religion because sometimes I feel there might be an ulterior motive. I just hope that is not the case in this series.
Normally I never mention how much I paid for a book but I feel I need to do so for this one. Book 1 was free which was great so I didn't think $4.99 was that bad. But its still pretty higher than normally priced indie books. Paying $4.99 I would expect the book to be properly formatted but this was not the case.The bad formatting made the reading at times difficult. Digital Heretic was released over 2 years ago (3 in January) and I recently noticed other reviewers mentioning the same issues. I feel those issues should have been fixed sooner. I did find out through social media that all the books in this series have good through reedits, formatting and new covers last month. That is all great but I did not receive the newer version or the update. I bought the book last April and do not think it should have been published if it wasn't properly done.
Now all that being said I did like the book and would like to see where the series goes. I am just not sure if I would ever buy any new releases from the author. I might have to wait a few years to make sure I get the proper version.
I would recommend this book to fans of the Matrix movies. The concepts are very similar and I think they would like it.
