Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Harry has a problem. Ever since getting in a car accident, he's suffered from "thought seizures," violent fits in which he attacks other people. He used to be an artificial intelligence researcher, which may explain why he targets anyone who either works on machines or who acts like a machine--mechanics, gas-station attendants, prostitutes, exotic dancers. But there's hope: he can become part machine himself, undergoing "Stage 3," an experimental procedure implanting 40 electrodes deep in the pleasure centers of his brain. The surgery is successful, and blissful pulses of electricity short-circuit Harry's seizures. That is, until Harry figures out how to overload himself with the satisfying jolts and escapes on a murderous rampage. One of Crichton's earliest, playing ably on '70s fears of computers and mind control. --Paul Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From AudioFile

Who would think a thriller about computerized mind control written in 1972 could remain just as thrilling nearly thirty years later? From any other author, time would have rendered this text laughable. A psychiatric research hospital performs a first-ever electrode implant upon the brain of a computer programmer who suffers from seizure disorders. The only trouble is that the programmer is terrified of machines, especially computers. George Wilson effortlessly races along with the terrifying text. His characterizations offer just enough distinction to keep the players straight, without calling attention to themselves through overdramatization. His chilling, matter-of-fact tone lets the text do the scaring, which it does just fine. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
