    1. Really awful in the worst ways1 Every character has the same 10 min diatribe about society2 Writing songs into the book was not a good idea very annoying3 She writes all the females as weak or incompetent and tries to make you side with the main character even as he beats a woman4 In sum, garbage I want my money and my time back I only read the book so I could write a good review of how bad it was I am so passionately displeased that I took the time to write my very first review.

    2. 40%, and I gave up It s pretty excruciating reading a whole bunch of adjectives and similes, a muddled plot, and when the main character did something that is physically impossible, that was enough for me.Worth every penny of the 1.99 I paid for it, but no .

    3. Some interesting premises, and points for the secret society living in plain sight There were some parts that felt untrue, though, where it pulled me out of the story and I thought, There is no possible way those characters would have done that I got about 3 4 through and put it aside 2015 Phillip K Dick nominee, I can see why, though not my cup of tea.

    4. Great premise This should be a summer blockbuster with Tom Cruise.

    5. A SIMPLE MAN S REVIEW First the good The story has a great opening scene It was captivating and exciting The almost end was pretty good too with Tom s enhancements being handled really well And the topic of nanotechnology is an exciting field, especially in the bionic brain direction that the author took it.Now the bad I m not a huge fan of a story that relies on adult characters acting like immature teenagers I just don t get why authors do it Also, I wished the author had gone into detail on [...]

    6. Hate to say it, but this is the first book of the year that I DNF I had high hopes for R evolution based on it being selected for Kindle First, the beautiful artwork and after reading the synopsis And after reading the prologue, I was 100% invested in what was going to happen next That is where, unfortunately, I began to lose interest I never really cared for the protagonist or any of the characters for that matter I felt that there was too much information given, but at the same time too little [...]

    7. Great premise, poor executionPJ Manney s near sci fi thriller is based on an intriguing possibility but quickly devolves into a by the numbers summer reading paperback The plot borrows from far too many others and character development, which should be crucial, is woefully underdeveloped.

    8. A struggleWhile for the majority of the book I was willing to stretch my suspension of disbelief, I was eventually forced to give up and accept that the author had lost her way in the story.The basic premise of the book, a man uses his experimental cybernetic and nano enhancements to take on the secret society that betrayed him, is a bit weak to begin with, and requires an excellent writer to pull it off Manney is unfortunately not up to the task.The hero is one dimensional until it suits the na [...]

    9. This is a hard one to review because I got really into the first half of the book but then it took a horrible turn into nonsense land and bad writing, with a plot that I was already sucked into and some decent writing woven into it So, I was desperate to know what happened to the characters and how the nano technology was going to change the main character and how and if everything was going to work out in his favor but I found myself thinking GOD, please let this be over soon I can t take much [...]

    10. This book offered as much to like as to not like The concepts were certainly intriguing using nanotechnology to enhance one s mental capacities and essentially surf the internet via an optical implant, having medical nanobots used for evil But after a certain point, the stereotyped characters became overly annoying and the plot just a little bit predictable Nonetheless, it was entertaining in the same way that action movies where lots of things blow up can be entertaining, if one is in the mood [...]

    11. I liked this book at first it s fast paced and has a lot of interesting ideas, but I lost interest about 2 3 of the way through There s nanotech terrorism, a secret society and centuries long conspiracy, experimental cyborg tech, a high speed boat chase complete with hand to hand combat and a big explosion and that s in the first third of the book It gets even outlandish after that instead of being drawn in, I kept thinking about how ridiculous it was I put it down and read another book, then g [...]

    12. The word I come up with is predictable A secret society, composed of the highest office holders and business execs in the land They started well, but then wanted to enslave all of humanity And the protagonist kept getting in terrible scrapes, getting saved each time It was an OK story, but so repetitive I wonder if an editor told Manney that he had to write 500 pages, so the story simply went on repeat The indication is that this is book 1 of a planned series Don t bother.

    13. Too long Didn t finish I have no issue with long books, unless they feel long This book started so well The prologue was intense, pulling me in Even when it switched gears to the main character it flowed well and had a good pace Then suddenly it switched gears from techno thriller mystery to secret society and slowed to a snails pace At 20% I just couldn t imagine another 400 pages of skimming entire paragraphs that didn t seem to matter.

    16. Slow beginning, Better EndingWhen I started this book, I was really confused After a manhood terrorist attack, a company and its founder Peter Bernhardt are shot down after accused of the crime Amongst silicon valley name dropping, whining about unfairness, and showing off the cool lifestyle, we end Part 1 Part 2 is all about rich white boy clubs, with a bit of bleeding edge tech thrown in I considered stopping at this point A lot of people have read and liked this book, but from these two secti [...]

    17. Remember that ScarJo movie, Lucy The trailers looked super cool and you were like what if you could use of your brain and be even smarter and do superhero type stuff So of course you think YEAH THAT LOOKS AWESOME So then you go see it and it starts off ok and then gets worse and worse and eventually at the end you re like WTF did she just turn into a USB drive This book is exactly like that I realized it was utter dreck by about the 40% mark, but couldn t stop hate reading until the end Several [...]

    18. Wow, so glad I got this for free, I would have been really upset had I paid money for it Why didn t I like it Characters were poorly drawn, couldn t like or hate any one of them Thus I suppose the only feeling was meh, who cares no matter what they got themselves into.Could there be a shadowy secret club running the world Sure, but the author became way too involved in initiation rites and non consequential sorts of things to explore the real ramifications of this shadow super group He hints at [...]

    19. There is very little that falls into the realm of normal when relating my experience with this book The first third of the book I devoured The characters are brilliant and distinct, each resonating in their own way despite their obvious failings What I love about this book is that Manney isn t afraid to take her characters down a road most authors would shy away from Without giving anything away from the plot, the main character, Peter, is and yet is not the same character you re following later [...]

    20. I have a Need To Know what happens nextManney s fiction debut is off to a rollicking start Reminding me of Ramez Naam s Nexus trilogy the book follows the transformation of and connections in the main characters journey, as well as the nature of power and ethics.The story surprised me by packing multiple technological and experiential pay offs that I would have expected across multiple novels The end result is I have a strong Need To Know what happens in future novels of this trilogy Hopefully, [...]

    21. This book leaves me with a mixed feeling Parts of it were brilliant, parts felt flat The parts dealing with potential scientific advancement were well thought out and brilliantly executed The parts dealing with human interactions and motives at times stretched the readers credulity Really smart people had to be incredibly stupid not because it made sense for the integrity of their character, but because the plot was stymied otherwise That was a little disappointing to encounter when the other pa [...]

    22. Initially I was turned off by the book, but I stuck it out because I was primarily finding myself completely uninterested in the character Peter I m glad I dug in and continued, because to some degree, that s the point Peter is a vapid character who gets caught up in a dangerous and difficult situation way outside of his depth.And, I eventually realized, that is the point The story is about the evolution of Peter into someone and something else.Overall the story is intriguing, and having finishe [...]

    23. This is a very well written science fiction story It hits all the right notes, technologically, and even includes a good political conspiracy structure as well I will echo other reviewers in saying the repeated mentioning of songs is somewhat distracting and takes one out of the story Nevertheless, I thought the plot was well developed and the characters both white hat and blackguard to be well written.

    24. This is a fun enjoyable near future what if sci fi story I enjoyed the world the author has built and the characters she portrays within The end of the story might have been a little far fetched but I am willing to continue with this series to see where she takes it.4 stars for a fun read Recommended for fans of near future sci fi.

    25. Really confusing story, shadowy power controlling organization with a dose of high technology mumbo jumbo thrown in And some really shallow and stereotypical characterizations of everyone from politicians to scientists Also a lot of never explained back story which might have made of this story make some slightly better sense.

    26. I wish I could give this another half star While there we re a few moments of ugh , it was still pretty intelligent and scary abuses of new tech , in a good way.

    28. Such an interesting concept Loved it until the end, which was a little disappointing, but still worth it I was definitely disappointed when I went to read the next book but it wasn t out yet.

    29. Could not make myself read further By the time I got to the ugly autistic Jewish woman with the unrequited love for the piece of shit MC, I had to put it down This will be to the taste of a reader who took up the guitar to get laid and thinks all women are carrying a secret torch for them thanks to their legit shredding.I know how hard it is to write and worse, to edit a book and I do not review poorly except when a book straight up pisses me off Like when a young woman gets groped in the first [...]
