Alten's best in a long line of great reads. Fast paced and thrilling with enough plot twists to keep you guessing the entire ride. Mixing science fiction and science fact so seamlessly you are filled with a need to research for yourself to find out what is real today and what is a prediction of what may come. The characters are deep and believable enough that you can't help to empathize with them. A strong blend of 2001:A Space Odyssey with H.G. Wells "The Time Machine". An instant classic which ranks right up there with these works of Sci-Fi legend. A must read.

Not his best

I have been reading Mr. Alten's books from the beginning. Love his style and ability to tell a story, except for The Omega Project. I just did not enjoy the story....I feel the idea was great, but the execution of the story left me frustrated and confused.

    Not belivable

    Seems like it was written by a teenager looking for a movie deal.

    Im a big SF fan, but this book is a candidate for Mystery Science 3000. Giving up on page 137/350.

    Where can i get my 10 bucks back?

    Couldn't get past the sample.

    Poorly written, childish characters and inconsistent butchering of basic physics. Fantasy is fine if that's the intent but to tie into present day as sci-fi for me makes it painful to read.

    Communist garbage

    If you enjoy reading about communists' dream of computer aided mind controlled utopia, quotes by such men as Stalin and Obama and ridiculous far-fetched evolution drivel than this is the book for you. But, if you believe in the freedom of choice, individuality, the dangers of communism, and resent being beaten over the head regarding the dangers of mankind to planet Earth then this book will only serve to piss you off and scare you knowing that there are people who actually believe in such absurdity.
