    Love is extinct but hate is notReview by Natasja Hellenthal author of The ueen's CurseThis is not my usual read I have to be honest; this was in fact the first Dystopian novel I’ve ever read But I love speculative fiction as a whole so I’m glad I did It reminded me a bit of the movie Euilibrium which I absolutely love in the sense that people have lost all freedom of mind in this story This is the story of Ahma and Jovian two eighteen year olds who live on a futuristic earth that by now has than fifty billion people the economy can no longer sustain Death or beggary are the only two options people haveThe two boys get presented a choice by some kind of guardian angel; she offers them life She says “As long as you follow the instructions strictly and not deviate from the plan everything is going to be fine All you have to do is deliver redemptive tickets to the people For every ticket sold you’ll receive fifty thousand golden bucklers” They will be dealing with tickets to Hereafter One and Hereafter Two and hope to people The sinner when the time has come will be granted eternal life in HereafterToo much hatred has gushed out from the minds of the human race and these tickets are the only real hope people haveI felt that that was a great start and I was intrigued to learn It gets increasingly complex though and you really have to stay focussed on the story But do You cannot put it away for too long in that sense it’s a page turner as you will loose the plot of the story It is not a light read by any means however a very interesting and original one in every sense of the word and one that is worth reading There is a lot of description making the reading experience vivid and visual Some people might be put off by this but I personally loved it I get told off by my editors myself regularly when I use too many description and adverbs I do feel that with some tighter editing in this area this problem could be easily solved if the author wants to and would made it easier to read for the majority; but I feel this is a book not written for the mainstream massI loved the facts that animals now rule the world and loved the uotes at the end of the bookOverall I thought it was very well written and would definitely recommend this to adult patient readers who are looking for something thought provoking and different

    ‘Those who ponder life can be scientists but those who ponder life and also death can be both – scientists and philosophers’Author Theo von Cezar has published nine novels of the dystopian fatalist nature To add to the mystery of his works and to step away from the personalization of detailing his life to avoid misconceptions about the messages he believes and writes he offers only a photograph young and intense and his definition of this work as a dystopian fatalistWhile the craftsmanship of his novel GODONISM is richly imbued with a gift for the English language pushed to literary heights the flow of the novel is at times daunting for the readers’ concentration But give in to the fact that tackling this novel is an act of commitment and the rewards are there by book’s endHints of this sci fi dystopian fantasy are present in a few summations or preparations for this novel ‘In a world ruled by a 'perfect' chaos at the peak of the highest decadence the falling of the everlasting gold embraced by the savage anarchy itself has started It is a time when people have to pawn their souls minds spirits and other most valuable 'assets' so they can buy measurable time which means the prolonging of their very existence and agony For time to come the survivors will be those who will follow only their instincts rather than following their judgments For some of them it is time to turn to God whereas for the others a few of them were left it is time to ask anagrammatic uestions at which others must find complex answers Set in the year 159 Nebula Era – a future of most volatile times when people have to pawn their minds in order to survive and at the peak of decadence the falling of the everlasting gold unexpectedly comes The two eighteen year old boys Ahma and Jovian through a scheme contrived by the head of the state Alzegotha and the mighty State itself with the help of Black Petal – Alzegotha’s beautiful fiancee – and with the support of the Pawn House and MondoCash are forced by the harshness of the times to embark on a struggle for survival and therefore have no other choice but to submit to Black Petal’s demand and start selling tickets for Hereafter’Or as Theo summarizes ‘Ahma and Jovian two eighteen year old boys have been given the sack from Windmill Plant an electricity generating company They don’t have too many options left since the present economy it is the year 159 of Nebula Era can no longer sustain a population of fifty billions people While roaming the streets of Nebula City the boys are presented a choice by a guardian angel whom they meet in a building called ‘The Church of Nonbelievers’ As long as they follow the instructions strictly and do not deviate from the plan everything is going to be fine the woman says otherwise they will meet death or beggary All they have to do is deliver tickets to Hereafter One and Hereafter Two The sinners when the time has come will be granted eternal life in Hereafter The boys accept the offer and things go as planned for almost two years Then a revolt of all beggars erupts in Nebula City This coincides with the elections for the mayor of Nebula City which turns out to be a fierce battle in which the chief off all beggars also competes By now the anarchy has spread throughout the entire cityBut to taste the flavor of Theo’s writing skills the following excerpt from the Prologue follows ‘It was the beginning of a chilly Zedober—the third month of that bloody year according to the new Nebula calendar Making use of a thick power cord which they had found in a gutter in downtown Nebula and which they had vigorously tied around their waists so they could keep hold of each other Ahma and Jovian kept walking in zigzag on Resurrection Boulevard through what appeared to be a never ending blizzard They had been wandering the streets of Nebula City for hours trying to take refuge from the vitriolic wind that cut savagely through the bare portions of their faces when they finally found themselves in front of an obscure dapple grey building They thought that the small temple like architecture was the right place to spend the night in CHURCH OF ALL NONBELIEVERS was engraved on the silver plate pinned to the timeworn frontispiece And beneath it WE SHALL FIGHT FOR KNOWLEDGE AND AGAINST THE DECAY OF OUR MINDS’After accompanying Theo on the journey he has written there are uotations from the author that offer insights into his philosophy He deserves a wider audience for his work Grady Harp November 17

    Godonism reminded me of Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett because both the story had the same grey setting absurdness and a depiction of a dystopian society that has little to offer to its population save for beggary and death Both the stories depicted tragicomedy in their sombre themes and somewhat comic presentation Coincidentally there is a sameness in the name too Theo Von Cezar paints a bleak picture of a commercialized world where nothing and nobody is true and future seems over for mere teenage boys Here everything has a price and freedom is non existent Chaos and confusion rains everywhere and religion is of a burden than a savior of path The story aims to preach a message while providing us with entertainment There are lots of food for thought Although confusing at many instances Godonism is also one of a kind book and if you have time and want to engage in a different kind of book then this book is just right for you

    A dystopian science fiction novel centered on two young friends who after they grow up drift apart and have their own adventures This book mirrored our current dysfunctional political society very closely throughout the entire book Religion afterlife as well as the true value of currency incl gold are also prominent themes throughout this book At times the story seemed to drag on a bit but for the most part this book as something I could relate to I was able to draw parallels to my own experiences even though this story is set in the year 159 and overpopulation is a big problem Politicians are just blowing hot air to stay in power and the people finally have enough Ahma and Jovian the two boys get talked into selling tickets to the afterlife to make a uick buck as well as stay out of trouble with their guardian angel An interesting story even if the plot moved slowly at times

    Godonism takes a look into the future way way into the future There are economic problems which land two teens in a world of trouble which seem otherworldly They stumble upon a uniue church where an angel approaches them with a threat job they need to complete The book covers the journey the guys experience I felt like this was a really uniue and interesting concept but it reading it was complex Like there was fluff and fantasy references than necessary Typically I enjoy fast paced books but this was a bit too fast for my taste Like I just needed a moment to understand what was happening I do think there is a lot of symbolism and societal references that keep things interesting I can always appreciate a book that both entertains while trying to do a little bit of education at the same time

    Godonism takes place on Earth but in the far off future It is centered around two teens that are best friends During a blizzard the pair take refuge in a “Church of Nonbelievers” where they meet up with an angel who tells them as long as they do as they’re told they’ll be just fine They accept and for the next two years everything is fine Then all hell breaks loose and things get interesting It was another dystopian science fiction novel for me However it’s always fun reading about the way authors see the future of Earth I enjoyed the way it was written and the author didn’t spend too much time on details Instead he provided just enough to keep me intrigued in the story It kind of was a battle for freewill which has been the cause of many battles past and present

    A book with plot written in the future and at the same time highlighting the economic problems The story is the journey of two teens who ends up in a church where an angel gives them a job that they need to complete If all is done well everything will be fine else will be hell After two years things begin to change and its chaotic This is fast paced book and needed a moment to get a hang on events

    “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 uite different It’s a world that’s falling apart and people even the powerful ones are trying to hold on to time Some are heading towards God and faith while some have allowed their instincts to conuer 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 themAhma 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 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 jobThere are a lot of philosophical themes mentioned in the story Jovian and Ahma are characters who seem to ask the tough uestions 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 uestions about faith free will love and what it means to have a mind that asks uestions about reality It might not be for all readers but it’s still something uite different

    I'm typically a very fast reader However in order to get a good grasp of what was happening in Godonism I really had to slow down and read very carefully The author throws a lot of information at the reader very uickly and uses excessive description in an attempt to clear up the information but sometimes it only serves to make the story convoluted I even went back and read the summary of the book to see if there was something that I missed and I was right at no point in the story did I understand that Ahma and Jovian had been fired from Windmill Plant they just seemed to be on the run constantlyThat being said the story itself once you begin to understand it a little farther in was a very thought provoking one The entire thing felt like one big metaphor for the constant war over 'free will' and 'predestination' and how overzealousness can ultimately corrupt and destroy no matter how good the intentions It speaks about time as if it were a real person and in the apocalyptic setting you really begin to think that time is a personLots of craziness abound but if you can ignore that Godonism throws some new concepts and perceptions your way that really make you stop and think

    It really takes a while for me to write a review for this novel The truth is I have a mixed feeling about the book I love the thought of apocalyptic times but at the same time there was too many things going on Somehow it felt like a scientology preaches Yeah it has something new and exciting about it but it is uite crazy for me; not in a bad way and not in a good way either Maybe dystopian is not my thing I appreciate the author's imaginations and ideas but for me it was a so so story The idea of converting souls and mind for cash is way too much though my sister said it was cool Perhaps the way it's being told was uite complicated and very much into details I wish some simplicity in it However I still want to give it a try and did finished it but with doubts
