Divinity   By: (1906-1980)

Book cover

Divinity by Joseph Samachson is a gripping science fiction novel that takes readers on an exhilarating journey through time and space. The book introduces a unique concept that combines elements of technology, morality, and spirituality in a thought-provoking manner.

Samachson's writing style is both imaginative and attention-grabbing, making it easy for readers to get lost in the pages. The plot follows the life of Dr. Robert Reardon, a brilliant scientist who invents a device capable of connecting people's minds directly to a cosmic intelligence. As the story unfolds, Reardon's invention sparks profound questions about the nature of humanity and the consequences of playing god.

One aspect that stands out in Divinity is the way Samachson skillfully blends religion and science. He explores themes of faith and the existence of a higher power while grounding the story in scientific principles. This delicate balance adds depth to the narrative and gives readers food for thought, encouraging them to ponder their own beliefs and philosophies.

The characters in the book are well-developed and relatable. Reardon's internal struggle between his scientific pursuits and his personal relationships makes him a compelling protagonist. Additionally, the supporting characters, such as Reardon's loyal assistant and a skeptical journalist, add layers to the narrative and help move the plot forward.

The pacing of Divinity is fast-paced, with plenty of suspense and unexpected turns. Samachson keeps readers engaged by presenting them with ethical dilemmas and complex moral choices. This not only contributes to the overall excitement but also prompts reflection on the consequences of our actions and the boundaries of scientific exploration.

If there is any criticism to be made, it would be that the ending feels slightly rushed, with some loose ends left untied. However, this does not detract significantly from the overall enjoyment of the story.

In conclusion, Joseph Samachson's Divinity is a remarkable science fiction novel that transcends the typical genre tropes. With its thought-provoking themes, well-crafted characters, and a compelling plot, it is a book that will captivate readers from start to finish. Whether you are a devout science fiction fan or simply looking for a captivating read, this book is definitely worth adding to your collection.

Bradley had one fear in his life. He had to escape regeneration. To do that, he was willing to take any chance, coward though he was even if it meant that he had to become a god!

Bradley seemed to have escaped regeneration. Now he had only death to worry about.

Ten minutes before, he had been tumbling through the air head over heels, helpless and despairing. And before that

He remembered how his heart had been in his mouth as he had crept down the corridor of the speeding ship. He could hear Malevski's voice coming faintly through one of the walls, and had been tempted to run back, fearful of being shot down on the spot if he were caught. He had fought back the temptation and kept on. No one had seen him as he crept into the lifeboat.

"This is your one chance," he told himself. "You have to take it. If they get you back to port, you're finished."

Luck had been with him. They were broadcasting the results of the Mars Earth matches at the time, and most of the crew were grouped around the visors. He had picked the moment when news came of a sensational upset, and for a minute or two after the lifeboat blasted off, no one realized what had happened... Continue reading book >>
