Publisher's Summary

The hugely powerful and pervasive presence of the Colossus supercomputer mechanically runs Earth and its myriad operations. Managed by its creator, Dr. Charles Forbin, it is incapable of lies and void of human emotion. It is not a robot and not human. As part of its brief to enhance the human race, it runs eerie emotion research centers, authorizing acts of savagery to measure resistance and feeling. Art and abstract creation are banned, and surveillance is constant. No one is free. The power of Colossus is spiraling out of control. The Sect worship it as a God, enforcing its word at every opportunity and seeking out traitors. The Fellowship secretly oppose it as a force of evil, and they risk their lives in a concentrated effort to destroy it and escape its domination. Meanwhile, as Forbin becomes increasingly disillusioned with what he has unleashed on the world, his wife, Cleo, becomes distant, with disastrous consequences.

Well worth the wait

Having Watch the '70 classic sci-fi film, Colossus:The Forbin Project, a gazillion times, listening to the sequel was definitely worth the wait. Fast forward 5 years after Colossus took complete control of the world's defense and political systems, it was fascinating to find out how the world and its inhabitants had drastically changed: no war, no poverty... It was suspenseful, terrifying at times, and overall a great "read."
