By Bernard Werber
Някъде далече, много далече има един остров, наричан от своите обитатели Еден. Там, на върха на високото плато, е кацнал град – Олимпия. В сърцето му е разположена странна институция – Школа за богове. В него преподават дванайсетте олимпийски богове, натоварени да обучават своите ученици в изкуството да се управляват хората, за да им бъде вдъхнато желание да оцеляват, да строят градове, да воюват, да измислят религии или да издигат своето ниво на съзнание.
Новият випуск? Сто четирийсет и четирима кандидат-богове на земните народи, сред които Мерилин Монро, Анри Матис, Мата Хари, Франсоа Рабле... Но животът на Еден не е рай. Един ученик се опитва да убие себеподобните си, друг се влюбва в най-прелъстителната преподавателка, Афродита, богинята на любовта, а всички се питат каква е онази светлина на върха на планината, която като че ли ги наблюдава...
„Ние, боговете“ е първата част от трилогията „Цикълът на боговете“ от вече добре известния на българския читател френски писател Бернар Вербер. Героят отново е Микаел Пенсон, който, след като беше човек в „Танатонавтите“, а после ангел в „Империята на ангелите“, сега е станал „бог чирак“.
