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 [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
