Summary:

Harry Benson suffers from violent seizures. So violent that he often blackouts when they take hold. Shortly after severely beating two men during an episode, the police escort Benson to a Los Angeles hospital for treatment. There, Dr. Roger McPherson, head of the prestigious Neuropsychiatric Research Unit, is convinced he can cure Benson with an experimental procedure that would place electrodes deep in his brain’s pleasure centers, effectively short-circuiting Harry''s seizures with pulses of bliss. The surgery is successful, but while Benson is in recovery, he discovers how to trigger the pulses himself. To make matters worse, his violent impulses have only grown, and he soon escapes the hospital with a deadly agenda.

Genres:

  • Peter Matthews

    The background research and content of this book are fascinating and thought provoking, but the story is crammed with technical information to give Harry, the main protagonist, context. As a story the book is interesting, but very slow and laboured. I also felt the main characters actions were flawed and their actions or reactions unbelievable. My willing suspension of disbelief was challenged several times. But, I am still thinking about the consequence of imminent singularity.
