    This is the first book I've read in this genre. It's not what I normally read, but the premise sounded so good. Well, it did not disappoint. Set in the year 2065, the Earth is having water shortages and Dr. Zeke Landry is trying to figure out how to solve them. He will later find out that a secret society/terrorists are trying to eliminate him and his family.From page one the dialogue and the characters gripped me. I especially enjoyed Forman, the A.I sex robot with a funny sense of humor and dedication to protect Dr. Landry. It was interesting to read his POV and I liked the fact that he had a crush on a pop star. The POV's do change frequently, but it is a nice look into each characters thought processes, especially the villains.Be prepared for a long story with tons of action and page turning suspense. There were some slow spots, but it did not detract from the story.NOTE: This is book one in the series, so the story is not complete. I wouldn't say it ended in a cliffhanger but the danger to Dr. Landry is still present.

    I rarely give 5 stars and I'm not a big sci fi reader, but I highly recommend G-1 to ... well, anyone who loves a good thinking story with humor and plenty of action/adventure. Starting with a rather iffy android, and I say iffy because he's not your typical android, Rigel Carson rocks the boat right from the beginning hard enough that it's pointless to try to expect anything from this futuristic but all-too-realistic tale of disappearing water and terroristic groups with world domineering plans.Dr. Zeke Landry isn't your typical scientist, either. He's young, alone, immersed in work that's frustrating him, and mourning a loss he doesn't understand. Zeke is very real, well drawn, fallible, and easily likeable. All of Carson's characters come alive on the page, including the not actually "alive" Forman. Her descriptions of the future mixed with the present in a setting the author obviously has a real passion about give the story an extra life of its own.What is with the world's water supply? Maybe Carson has nailed it here. At least G-1 makes it easy to believe it's possible.

    This book is not my typical genre. I enjoy YA and this book reminded me why I enjoy YA.This book was good, very good for the intended audience, which I'm not.I would classify it as adult (not erotica) sci-fi dystopian mystery.It took me a bit to get hooked into the action about 30%, given that I'm typically a YA reader, that is long, but I think it is normal for non-YA.The "good guys" were layered and while I did not initially want to like Forman, due to my personal bias; he became one of the most endearing characters.The multi-POV unrolled at differnt layers and eventually the 3 storylines came all together in a comprehensive view.I do have my own theories about One...Overall an enjoyable, exciting book for those with longer attention spans than the typical YA.DISCLAIMERS:I won this book by participating in some FB discussion. I do not personally know the author.

    Challenges facing the earth in 2065 hit home in this tense ecological thriller, with water supply the primary currency in a power game that jeopardizes an already threatened planet. Maggie Toussaint's depth of knowledge shines through in astute and compelling science. Well placed humor flares throughout the narrative, with Forman, an android ostensibly designed as a gigolo but who, as it turns out, is far more than good looks, hacking ability and Herculean strength. He can do just about anything, including feel. His loyalty and wit make him one of the book's most memorable characters in a cast of idiosyncratic truth seekers hell bent on saving the world. G-1 marks the start of an intriguing and relevant sci fi series.

    This is not a genre that I normally read, but this book is a Kindle Scout winner, so I decided to give it a shot. I'm so glad I did! The futuristic setting has enough scientific jargon to make it believable, yet manages to stay fun -- even when dealing with serious and potentially catastrophic topics. I found myself rooting the most for Forman, the witty pop-star loving robot. Much of the comedic relief in the book came from his one-line zingers. At one point, he tells the main character, "A guy needs action. Too much congestion down there rots your brain." He's clearly not your average robot. This book is entertaining and enjoyable, even while it delves into some frightening scenarios of what the future could hold.

    I'm not usually a sci-fi reader, but I've read other books by Ms. Carson, AKA Maggie Toussaint, and love her writing style. This is a different genre than she usually writes, and you can see her science background in the complexity of the plot. Water, or maybe the lack of clean water, will be one of the things that we will have to deal with in the future. In G-1, the water is disappearing. Zeke Landry, a specialist in the field, has to find out why and where it's going. Full disclosure: I had the pleasure of reading an ARC of this book before it became a Kindle Scout selection, and I found it fascinating. There are quite a few interesting characters in this book, but my favorite was Forman, the brilliant robot.

    This book was fascinating and not what I expected it to be - a rollercoaster ride through emotional and political upheavals in a futuristic world that seems all too realistic. This is not a "heavy" sci-fi novel, in the sense that things are so different from our world it's difficult to hold onto the setting. The water crisis was well researched, characters which you wanted to root for (including the android Forman who must have been fun to write), and enough twists to always stay a step ahead. A great enjoyable read.

    The world is on the brink of ecological disaster, but scientist Dr. Zeke Landry has trouble convincing anyone that a conspiracy might be the cause. As he digs deeper, he uncovers truths about himself that leave him even more mystified. When he becomes a target for deadly forces bent on his destruction, is it because of his research into the global water shortage or because of his own mysterious background? In a race against time, he must discover his legacy and activate his powers to save the world. G-1 is a page-turning ecological thriller that could become chillingly real.

    Science Fiction on steroids! OMG, I have to admit I have never been able to finish a Science Fiction novel, but purchased this book because it earned a publishing contract through the Kindle Scout program. In 2065 Dr. Zeke Landry is a hardworking, honest scientist who is only trying to save the world, and they don't make it easy by sending him a re-programmed gigolo-robot that ends up being a computer genius. G-1 kicks off with a promise of a rocin' read and doesn't disappoint!

    Sometimes mankind is it own worst enemy, and author Rigel Carson spins a wonderful tale of an outsider trying his best to save the world while keeping a low profile in the process. His awkward, aw-shucks manner lures you in to root for Dr. Zeke Landry, but you want to stay to see the wonders of a smart young man doing equally smart things. The writing is sharp and clean with science that doesn't instantly make you shudder. In fact this is the most fun you'll have hearing about the water cycle since fifth grade! Also, sexy, sarcastic robots - need I say more? Can't wait to read G-2 now.*I received a free copy in return for my honest review*

    What a pleasant surprise this book was. As a rule, I don’t read science fiction, but I’m glad I broke that rule for this book. Carson has populated this well-written novel with some amazing characters – human and robotic. And speaking of that robot, Forman’s gorgeous and fun as well as being a top-notch assistant and protector of the main character, Zeke. This book is technical enough to satisfy the SF fan with enough character development and a bit of romance to satisfy readers like me. I enjoyed this read so much I can’t resist the next in the series. Well done, Rigel Carson.

    G-1 is the perfect book for science fiction lovers. It tells the story of Zeke Landry and his unusual robot sidekick, Forman. The two of them are on a mission to find out what's happening to the planet's water supply, but someone is out to stop Zeke. When Zeke's uncle goes missing that becomes one more mystery he's determined to solve. I especially enjoyed when Zeke and Forman cross paths with a famous popstar and her sister. This is an excellently written book by a very imaginative author.

    I own this book from Goodreads. This book is about the author's version of a future earth. This is the first book in a future series. In 2065 the earth has had plagues, locusts, and earthquakes. For some reason the world's water supply is vanishing. Dr Zeke Landry goes to investigate and he finds out something sinister is happening and the Chameleons (a secret society) are after him because Dr Zeke has a special keystone. This is an ecological futuristic thriller.
