Thoughts on Machine Man

Max Barry's new book is a thriller, a thought provoker, has a wicked thread of humour running through it but also some seriously moral questions.  His character Charlie turns a lemon of an accident into lemonade by upgrading himself and his lab assistants come along for the ride in the ultimate open source development competition.

My favourite line from this book

"Compared to you, Kevin Warwick is a pussy!"

NB Kevin Warwick was my husband's cybernetics professor at Reading University and has a computer chip embedded in his arm.

Full review when Machine Man comes out in August.
