    “Godonism” by Theo Von Cezar, asks a lot from the reader. It’s enjoyable, but you will need to really keep an open but focused mind while reading. I thought reading Cloud Atlas was difficult, but trying to understand this book was tough too. 
    The story is told from the perspectives of two boys, Ahma and Jovian. The futuristic world they live in is not pleasant. I’ve read stories about post-apocalyptic worlds, but the one in this book was quite different. It’s a world that’s falling apart and people, even the powerful ones, are trying to hold on to more time. Some are heading towards God and faith, while some have allowed their instincts to conquer them. I really liked the concept in which a person’s mind could be controlled in order to block out ‘bad’ thoughts. Memories can also be altered if necessary. I also liked the whole ‘selling one’s soul’ for money. In the world that the author created, such a thing fits right in. The story starts with Ahma and Jovian being recruited to sell tickets to the Hereafter. But things don’t go as planned as everything seems to be breaking down around them.
    Ahma and Jovian spend most of the time apart. I was expecting the friends to be together in the adventure. However, this allowed the author to focus on both individually. The character of Zexton was a pleasant surprise in the story. It was fun to read how he popped up in Ahma’s and even Jovian’s story. Some things did confuse me, especially the little boys with the same names as the protagonists, but in the end I was glad when things made more sense. There are a lot of creepy characters in the story and a lot of fighting involved. The last chapters of the story really put things straight for me. The whole ‘scheme’ is unmasked and we get to know why Ahma and Jovian were selected for the job.
    There are a lot of philosophical themes mentioned in the story. Jovian and Ahma are characters who seem to ask the tough questions about God and if there is a Hereafter. The story is well-constructed, but kind of complex to understand. The author has created a rich world, with distinct characters, so kudos to him for that.
    ‘Godonism’ by Theo Van Cezar gets 4 out of 5 stars from me. It’s a story that asks questions about faith, free will, love, and what it means to have a mind that asks questions about reality. It might not be for all readers, but it’s still something quite different.
