Book Description for The Path:
All life on earth is about to be terminated by an entity as old as the galaxy itself. To make matters worse, Simon has broken everything already.
In a future world that is run by computer systems and that is without want, how can a man find his role? Then, if the very computers he works on to try to make them more human suddenly try to kill him, revealing a secret so vast that it affects every living soul on the planet, can that man be a hero?
These are the questions that face the stumbling, comic, and certainly flawed Simon Bank. His job is to work with the System’s artificial intelligence, making it fit more perfectly into human society so that it can keep the country running smoothly. But when the System threatens the peaceful world he knows, Simon suddenly must rush to save his own life, as well as the life of everyone on earth. Forced to reassess everything that he thought he knew, he is caught within circumstances way beyond his control.
Simon’s only hope is to rely on intellect and instincts he didn’t know he had, and on new friends, not all of them human, to change himself and all humanity. And he doesn’t have much time.
Peter Riva has worked for more than thirty years with the leaders in aerospace and space exploration. His daytime job for more than forty years has been as a literary agent. He resides in New York City.

"The Path" by author Peter Riva is the kind of book that makes you ask yourself if this world could ever really happen. Simon Bank is supposed to be helping out mankind by fixing computers and making them more real. What happens is that now they want to kill their makers. But, can Simon save everyone including himself? He will have to work quickly and not make any more mistakes, because it is all up to him. This book is a thriller with some twists and turns. I really liked the story. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for a review and all opinions a re mine.
