I wasn't very far into Implant when I started telling friends and family about what a phenomenal writer Michael Wallace is. I likened him to several of the top ten suspense writers, on bestseller lists, that I've ever read. He takes the readers on a journey to faraway places, root for patients in a mental institution, want to physically maim some bad guys, etc. This is a must read for readers who enjoy a thrilling ride.

The story is well plotted and made a tad more interesting by adding an informed South African backdrop. Although all the right ingredients have been mixed into the story - well described science; love interest; war and fighting; politics; CIA; international economy ... etc. - It seems like the story tries to do it all, with the inevitable result that the plot and characters appear somewhat washed out. Enough of a page turner that I kept reading, but far from really exciting or memorable. Some parts reminded me of "The Terminal Man".

Michael has done it again.

I found this story very interesting and had to wonder if things like this really do go on. Who knows?

You have a bond between friends and the sorrow of the loss when one is killed in the line of duty. You have the suspense of medical science and humans. You've got a love story.

I found it very hard to put this book down as I do all of Michael Wallaces books. I think I finished it in two nights just so I could get on to his next one.

Thanks Mike for making my days brighter with your twist in stories. Not just the same old thing in your books. Always something suspenseful to look forward to.

This book was fantastic, just when I thought I knew where it was going, surprise.. a twist. I actually think this might be my favorite book by Michael Wallace. The story has something for everyone... intrigue, action, romance, friendship, loyalty. Is is worth every penny of the cost. Buy it, you won't regret it.

I found Implant to be gripping and interesting, and it kept me reading to the end. Some of the central "stretches of reality", such as the implant itself, were handled in a somewhat credible manner, much as is done in good science fiction. I found the characters consistent and the personalities distinct and well-developed. However, I draw the line at learning everything a person knows by eating his brain. This and a few similar things were unfortunate distractions, completely non-credible.

The wires that were placed on Ian's brain by gifted brain surgeon Julia then were secretly controlled by an out of control IT guy, Chang. I really enjoy the way this author develops multifaceted characters for the stories.

This book catches you on the 1st page of kindle and does not let you go. This was my first read with my new kindle and I chose wisely. The action and adventure are non stop. The scenes in the mental hospital are quietly horrible and linger with you and the love story sneaks up on you and you are capitivated before you know it. The idea of a brain implant is a new idea and the Dr Chung takes it out of sight. This is an excellent read and will not be my only Mike Wallace book.

I really liked this book.
It's a great concept, and the characters are well developed.
I got this to fill in the time for when my favorite authors are between books. (or overpriced.)
This book was every bit as good as the "Name Brand" authors.
A little Vince Flynn, a little Dean Koontz, a bit of Michael Crichton.
It was a buck! You'll thank me later.
