Publisher's Summary

You are probably sitting in your home, or at your office, reading this. Who is reading these words? You hear the voice in your head, but is it my voice? Is it your own voice? Are you sure? Look around you. The other people; what is behind their eyes? What if you are wrong? Maybe you have never worried about this before. Maybe you should start.

Scientists, computer experts and the military work in isolation; their motives, some benign, some darker, hidden from one another. Something is going wrong, however - an unknown element, ethereal and subtle is moving amongst them. This could be the future of mankind, or it could be our final chapter.

    "Stick with it"

    The start of this book introduces so many strands that it found it hard to join them together. The problem was that I was listening to it in the car and so the narrative was interupted. However, I started listening again (during a long journey) and I was able to appreciate how the different narratives joined-up. I'm glad I stuck with it. I came to enjoy it and was genuinely intrigued about where the narrative was going. Its not the type of book where I cared about the characters but it has some inventive ideas and I wanted to know how the narrative would develop. The narrative could be better but its not a great problem. I recommend this to anyone wanting to explore moral implications of cutting edge technology in a fictional context.

    "A Bit More Biblical than I Expected"
    Would you try another book from Matt Hayes and/or Matt Hayes?

    I'm not sure I'd try another book by this author.


    Has The Good and Evil Angels turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, it hasn't turned me off from other books in this genre. The title and concept veered away from its initial premise somewhere after the first few chapters.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Using a smoother cadence rather than a "pulpit" lilt would have helped the listener transition from one set of concepts to the next without wondering if they were about to hear a sermon.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not.


    Any additional comments?

    The concept was a good one and there are a lot of written records to draw from (which the author did in the beginning of the book) without referring to Biblical connotations. Angels, through the author's own admission early on, were not a Christian phenomenon only.
