Item description for Utopian Reality by C. A. Simone...
Evolution's first gift is on the horizon. No spells, wizardry or magic of any kind produced its coming. Its technical details are very practical and realistic. It brings us a world where our fairytales can come true. Most of our wishes are simply to have a beautiful home and garden, nonetheless, some claim their right to a castle in the sky.
It is only so sad that this new world was born to such a destroyed, toxic earth. If only we could go back a few years in time with the knowledge we have now.
The plan is to safely harbor individuals from the contaminated air, without leading our unknown adversaries to our underground locations. We must race to trace the web of violent assaults so to find and stop these foes before our new world is destroyed as well.
I have confidence we can succeed, but only time will tell.

Reviews - What do customers think about Utopian Reality?
A digital future Dec 17, 2007
Utopian Reality is an amazing look at a potential future where people can find a way to live out their dreams. A great story with a decent twist here and there. Even if you aren't into science fiction, this book is worth reading purely as a means of opening the mind to the potential of virtual reality.
Too much confusion and a plethora of characters Sep 21, 2006
In a not too distant future, all the societies of the world are in ruins. Groups of survivors roam the streets of deserted streets, and all over the world a constant battle for food and shelter is being fought. The few wealthy people who survived the great collapse have isolated themselves in their mansions, and nature is so utterly destroyed that it's nothing but a shadow of its former beauty.
But not everyone has given up hope. An underground (literally) resistance movement has managed to create an alternative, a virtual reality known as Sec-Real, where people can live in peace and harmony. Slowly but steadily more and more members are added to this movement. However, powerful forces are out to destroy it, and once a traitor manages to infiltrate it the setbacks escalate to a point where the entire movement, along with mankind's last hope, is threatened with utter destruction.
Utopian Reality is a based on a great idea that is both interesting and without a doubt worth exploring. Unfortunately, however, the realization of this idea is not even half as great. There are just too many main characters involved. All throughout the book, more and more characters are added continually, and eventually it just becomes one big mess, which isn't helped by the fact that the plot becomes more and more difficult to comprehend.
And then, without the great climax one expected from the long build-up, the end suddenly comes. An end that is somewhat welcomed, since by now the much too fuzzy storyline has lost all its previous fascination. Nonetheless, the story in itself is quite fascinating, and in the hands of a more highly skilled author the book could have turned out to be a great experience.
Real Science Brings Real Fantasy Sep 14, 2004
Utopian Reality takes you beyond Armageddon, to a battered world, most of its people barely alive and without much hope. It then brings to life some of our most incredible wishes, which are then threatened by an unknown menace. I have been jolted by this story. It freaked me out towards what is really right and wrong. This virtual reality program got two sides to it, one side is terrific and then the other can be really awful. I do not want a future where virtual reality is the only option to comfortably survive. I loved the idea of having whatever I'd want, but I'd like the option to come out of it. Parts of this book seriously scared the crap out of me while other parts were invigorating. C. A. Simone did however, do a good job of turning her story into gentle support right at the right moment after sending me for a serious loop. Nothing else out there like this, seriously, it's not like sci-fi or fantasy. It's more like a fiction story with a future prediction of real science and then the real fantasy it can create. This is a story that's got to be read, thought about and acted on. It can be frightful but it's handled perfectly and you'll close the book feeling enlightened just for reading it.
As a story, not a warning Jul 2, 2004
This book is thick with plot turns and meaning. It is not for the light reader; you must pay attention to every detail or you will miss a turn. I have seen other reviews on this book, and they all claim it is like a warning, (like my wife thinks, who insisted I read it) that is fine. I'd like to say this book is a fantastic story, all on it's own.
Wow Jul 1, 2004
This story has a combination of heart, creative vision and twists that I've never experianced before. It grabs you into the story through excellent detail and emotion- and then puts you on a mental rollercoaster of suspense and action. This book had me so surprised, and not just once or twice, but over and over again.
