    I have read a few books by Liza O Connor so far and loved those immensely from her Adventures of Xavier Vic Series and her Worst Week Ever Series They were, above all, hilariously funny, filled with lots of social criticism and wit, and deeply emotional All this holds true for The Gods of Probabilities too, although it contains less humour and is a different genre.There is a lot to enjoy and admire about this book The way the author mixes science fiction including planets and multiver I have read a few books by Liza O Connor so far and loved those immensely from her Adventures of Xavier Vic Series and her Worst Week Ever Series They were, above all, hilariously funny, filled with lots of social criticism and wit, and deeply emotional All this holds true for The Gods of Probabilities too, although it contains less humour and is a different genre.There is a lot to enjoy and admire about this book The way the author mixes science fiction including planets and multiverses and quantum leaps and space traveling with mermaids and some paranormal and magical elements is something I ve never come across, and it works surprisingly well When I say mermaids , I mean creatures living underwater and being somewhat fishy but also human gilled and with legs to walk on They re aptly called Oceanics What made the story evenentertaining to read were the gods, of whom she has picked a clever few and who would be great in a movie that could rival Guardians of the Galaxy Sometimes I found myself reminded of Terry Pratchett s books, and that s a HUGE compliment.Drogan and Navood are perfect picks for the main characters, and their parents as well as Scholar Korak are brilliantly matched to them and well fleshed out Each character has a main purpose in the story and moves the plot forward, and I have grown to know and love them so much that I d happily read a whole book with each of them The octopuses are awesome, if I may say so, and I can t wait to see how the confrontation with the humans will fit into the bigger picture.Once again, O Connor manages to tell a fast paced story full of adventures and interesting facts and emotional depth that will stay in my mind for a long time Her hints at environmental problems that are all too acute and severe, and her uncanny ability to make even the most outrageous seem real and perfectly plausible make this story shine There is much to learn from this book, but you ll be so engrossed that you won t realize that until after you ve finished it in one go The scientific facts and hidden messages are always lurking, but never taking center stage, so this is a terrific read that is both entertaining and enlightening.I can t wait to meet Drogan again in Book 4, but until then I ll happily read the different stories waiting for me in Books 2 and 3

    What I liked I wasn t sure what to expect with this book, having not read any of Liza s non SF titles, other than knowing she had a reputation for being humorous I wasn t disappointed I had a smile on my face for much of the book due to her Douglas Adams esque humor throughout, tempered by some intriguing science quantum theory and multiple parallel universes , theories of evolution, and comic theology While humans are mentioned very briefly, the story focuses on an ocean dwelling intellige What I liked I wasn t sure what to expect with this book, having not read any of Liza s non SF titles, other than knowing she had a reputation for being humorous I wasn t disappointed I had a smile on my face for much of the book due to her Douglas Adams esque humor throughout, tempered by some intriguing science quantum theory and multiple parallel universes , theories of evolution, and comic theology While humans are mentioned very briefly, the story focuses on an ocean dwelling intelligent life form and their struggle for survival while overseen by a superior race whom legends describe as gods I loved the twist on Greek mythology and basing the story around a non human race The science isn t so heavy that even a non SF reader would struggle with it and woven in carefully throughout so not to overload a reader with facts to remember The world building is also nicely layered in This is a story that will make you laugh, but keep you thinking about it long after you finish.What I didn t like Because it wasn t told in what I think of as deep 3rd POV, some of theserious emotion was lacking for me However, the story, the characters, and the comedythan made up for this I can live without emotional punch if it s made up for with comedy that has me chuckling every few pages Not to say this doesn t have its serious elements and moments of tear inducing sadness, but not to the level I d normally seek from a story.In conclusion If you re a fan of Douglas Adams re the Hitch Hikers Guide and Dirk Gently s Long Dark Teatime of the Soul or Sir Terry Pratchett s SF novels The Dark Side of the Sun and Strata you should definitely read this Even non SF fans who like humor including some grumpy gods and sassy goddesses along with the SF will enjoy this book Can t wait for the next in the series Full disclosure I was given an ARC by the author for my honest review

    Liza approached me with an ARC for review This was my first time reading one of her novels, though I ve known of her work for a year or so What did I like Well From the start, this book is intriguing It starts off introducing us to a God of Probability , Zousan, and his crew of Greek descent, but with a misnomer or two , who embark on the challenge of running a multiverse system and guiding its inhabitants along the Path of Light The book focuses on a species called Oceanics who live in Liza approached me with an ARC for review This was my first time reading one of her novels, though I ve known of her work for a year or so What did I like Well From the start, this book is intriguing It starts off introducing us to a God of Probability , Zousan, and his crew of Greek descent, but with a misnomer or two , who embark on the challenge of running a multiverse system and guiding its inhabitants along the Path of Light The book focuses on a species called Oceanics who live in the 4th dimension on a planet called Zepwick which is reminiscent of Earth These beings are a very entertaining lot, and gave me many a chuckle.I loved the way O Connor dealt with gifted children and the inter relations between their intelligence and that of normal Oceanics, very reminiscent of how things are in the real world for gifted people The book was a fantastic roller coaster ride of calamities and the resulting panic amongst the Gods, that is as the probabilities for reaching the Path of Light rocket wildly up and down Her treatment of the dangers of nuclear waste was also brilliant Do we consider the impact What didn t I like To be honest, very little I think the one thing that threw me off was some of the front matter, which was a little technical and unnecessary in my view I could easily have gone through the book without one or two of the explanations I read before I began the book.This book reminded me very much of Surface Tension by James Blish, and was a thoroughly entertaining read The science y bits are NOT complicated, and fit into the story very well
