VIR(US): Definitely read I loved this book it gave me so much to think about ! It felt like I was reading 2 books in 1 and I loved the philosophy in the book at points I felt like I wanted to cry at how sad some bits in the book was . I would definitely recommend reading this book
VIR(US): Novel with a good dose of philosophy I really enjoyed the pace of the story, Each chapter had you pondering our personal and current society problems. A real page turner .It certainly didn't disappoint. READ IT
VIR(US): Another strong social commentary from Kai Motta I had already read the first novel by Kai Motta which I found thought provoking, so I was interested to read the next novel VIR(US).It’s obvious the author is interested in human politics, the influence of technology and their effects on our evolution as both novels from different angles address the issues.In VIR(US) Motta chooses to run two stories alongside one another switching from one to the next with every chapter which finally meet and tie up in the end.The subject matter is about a virus in 2023 and humanities helplessness to deal with it due to the fact that humans didn’t learnt from the current situation we are in with COVID.As the blurb describes the only safe place is the sky as earth has become uninhabitable and so we hear the protagonists thoughts from his window seat as he watches the other planes intermittently fall from the sky when the fuel runs dry. He talks the reader through many different subjects and covers lots of topics and themes in a very digestible way.Definitely a page turner as you will really want to know if he or his wife and son fall from the sky.

VIR(US): Need a page turner? This is it. What a story. I was gripped from the first chapter.Relatable in an unbelievable way.Poignant in these times.I was moved to tears at some points and anger at others.Some parts, you literally cannot put the book down as you hope to god, what you think is about to happen, does not.Yet again another fantastic novel from this author.Cannot wait for the 3rd novel.
VIR(US): Emotive and engaging, modern life and what it means to lose it. This was a book of two halves for me, one was the very real and engaging human reaction to the stories anchor, a new pandemic in 2032, more fatal and with devastating mortality rate. A real page turner.The second was the internal machinations of a highly philosophical mind, I can relate to that, the critique was on point.The dialogue and reflection of modern life, love, family and togetherness were very sincere and readable, the insight into the authors world views, well, it was very in depth critique actually, took us on a scathing roller-coaster hitting out at the changing landscape of humanities influences, interactions and values. At times I found this got in the way of the story, Having said that I related to these views wholeheartedly.

      Whilst the increase of energy prices is awful for many families across the UK and the world, it shouldn’t surprise us that the price of energy is rising, in fact we should be expecting this. Energy companies aren’t philanthropists, it’s their job, their role to make a profit. Their role isn’t to give us good deals on energy or to ensure that we all keep warm and have enough […]

      I have to be honest, before I went to Tenerife, I did hold a particular view of the island as being a tourist hell hole that served up English food, to English people who only spoke English and would never make the effort to speak any other nations language, but thankfully, as I found out this was only in the plastic Disneyworldesque cultural low points of the island know as Playa de las Americas […]

      1. Human vs Machine How powerful is your computer?

But that isn’t what I am asking. The answer I am seeking is far more interesting, and possibly dangerous. […]
