yes, an interesting premise and frightening because it becomes more believable everyday with medical technological advancements. The story, however, was one dimensional and simplistic, not enthralling or particularly suspenseful and it lost me, finally, with it's turning to back God who will fix everything..........Although the premise is interesting, I can't recommend as a great read and it only gets 3 stars because of the premise....the narrator, too, was also a bit lackluster, but I guess, on reflection, she matched the tone of the book.

Interesting premise... not fully realized
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I have enjoyed this author for several years now, but this is not her best work. The concept is interesting - what power do medical advances have, and how could they be used for good or evil? This is not fully realized, and too many coincidences abound for the writing to be credible. How likely is it that a brain chip recipient to just be able to go home after 48 hours?
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I would have fleshed out the premise a bit more... maybe made the recipients have to stay in the hospital more... have control groups? I am not sure what I would have done, but included more well-rounded characters and less melodrama. Also, the writing is very clunky in spots, and an editor could have cleared this up.
What about Rebecca Gallagher’s performance did you like?
Her performance was very good in this book... I think Over the Edge was better... as another reviewer stated, it is flat and emotionless in places. Not sure if this was meant to reflect the character herself.. in the beginning this works, but not continuously.
