Parti para O Algoritmo do Poder sem fasquias elevadas. Auto-edição significa que tirando os amigos do autor não houve olhar crítico editorial sobre o texto, e as produções literárias de autores que estão fora dos núcleos mais activos da FC em Portugal raramente surpreendem pela sua qualidade ou i...

This is one of those books I found hard to stop reading. It's an amazing tale between centuries, built in a way that you always want to know more, and the characters and places are depicted wonderfully. Everything feels so believable that this book makes us think how crazy it would be if we were...

I read previous Pedro's books and each was an enjoyable read and a unique experience. And now Pedro did it again! His newest book "The Algorithm of Power" is even more interesting, with beautifully and intelligently crafted plot, thoughtful sequencing, perfect, smooth writing style and overall th...

This is an original take on the dystopia of the future genre, and utterly relevant to the state the world is currently in, and the direction in which it seems unavoidably headed. Its a definite page turner, combining readability with a meditation upon deeper, universal issues. It also has a wry s...

I wanted to give this book 5 stars, but just could not cross the line to that final star. The first part of the book reads like three short stories of three different characters. They all end at a common point in time where the first story resumes. This would have been a much better story had the...

This dystopian SF novel, for me, really stood out from the pack. An intricate, cleverly thought-out plot and chillingly analogous situation to today's world made it a compelling read. At first, it seemed fragmented, but the disparate parts are beautifully woven together in the final segment, alth...
