    GodBomb - Kit Power 5/5       http://www.amazon.com/GodBomb-Kit-Power-ebook/dp/B0141HK0FM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1446879922&sr=8-1&keywords=God+Bomb


      When I heard about GodBomb I wasn't sure what to expect. Books like these sometimes just don't live up to the hype, and often become mired in whatever agenda the author has in mind. The only book I can compare it too would be Stephen King's Rage. This is a book that King himself pulled out of circulation due to it resembling current events. The reason I bring Rage up is because it made me think and after I read it I couldn't stop thinking about it. GodBomb is the exactly the same kind of novel. You simply don't read it. You become absorbed in it and you may even find that your holding your breath as events unfold. There's no way to stop it and it everything happens so fast that you sometimes have to take a break just to catch your breath,

     It's a very dark novel that is based smack dab in reality and at times it does make you question God, and even faith, Godbomb is the kind of story that could happen. All it would take is a crisis of faith. That's what this books really about. These are people from different backgrounds and with different levels of faith, forced to pray for God to show up and if he doesn't there's going to be a mighty big boom. That is the pull of the novel. Does God actually listen to prayer? If he's watching over us like we're lead to believe then why hasn't he stopped this from happening? Maybe he allowed this to happen to test their faith. Faith is both a powerful and also a crippling thing.

     It's a riveting story that evolves well. Powers has written a novel that will shock and offend, but when you read a novel like this you can always expect something like that. This is a writer that knows how to engage his readers. It's a masterpiece of reality fiction, and it keeps your eyes glued to the page. We've all questioned our faith, but our protagonist has gone one step further and has called God out. His actions make sense in his mind, and even as I read it I could feel his desperation. He has set out to prove the existence of God. That one decision sets of a chain reaction of violence and the unexpected. GodBomb is a well written novel that pulls you in and holds you hostage until the end.
