#BookReview: Unfettered Journey by @garyfbengier

Synopsis: Set in a richly envisioned future world, Unfettered Journey is the story of an AI scientist who seeks to create robot consciousness and discovers the resilience of the human spirit. He travels to a small college to progress his quest, but instead finds love, a secret plot by unjust forces, and the answers to his fundamental questions—the nature of the conscious mind and free will. 

This book is a profound, many-layered journey. It is a love story and an adventure. It traces struggle and resilience in an imperfect world. It is a deep philosophical exploration, resetting the conversation at the intersection of science and religion, challenging you to begin your own journey to a purposeful life.


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review: This was a great escape for this year.  I could not put it down and I just really loved the journey.  This is layered in sci-fi aspects as well as future concepts that just felt so real.  It is a tale of what our world could be like if we aren't careful and its not a world you would want to live in.  I loved this story and I can not wait for more.
