Terrible book! Don't waste your time.

I can forgive a lot in a first book. Characters were flat and bland, dialog is stilted, the tech isn't new or visionary. But the supposed climax of the book has no narrative, no drama. It's like "they fight... and they win." Nothing. He may be a neurologist, but he has no imagination. He didn't even try.

The worst part, though, is the ending. It's like the publisher said "hurry up and finish it" and the author did - in one page. The main characters are being chased, then they find this really cool place with really cool people and everything will be great the end. Seriously. They go from "in trouble" to "safe" in half a page. And that's the end. My son wrote stories like that in 3rd grade.

The only positive thing I can say about this book is that it demonstrates that it must not be that hard to get published. Hope for aspiring writers that can actually write.

Yuck! An infinity-sized YUCK!
It would help tremendously if the author had ever read a science fiction book - - or any book, for that matter!
Priority News Flash to this author: A TED talk on a functioning brain/computer interface was given at least 4 years ago - - writing about future fiction which has already occurred ain't science fiction, dude!
One must surmise that HarperCollins has fired all their editors for that company to have published this crud - - not worth rating!
