Anmeldelser

This was a good book. It very realistically handled the subject of addictions, and gave effective descriptions. It was very easy for me to picture what was happening. And as a bonus, there were some pretty nice one liners. Also, it ended on a deep, thought-provoking, somewhat encouraging note(while not being overly idealistic) and I really liked that.

Tengo sentimientos encontrados. La narrativa es espectacular, la premisa bastante buena, las descripciones de lad sensaciones son magníficas; pero ya la final del libro no sabía hacia dónde me llevaba y no sé si me encantó en final.

FROM SHCC - CORE COLLECTION.

FROM AMAZON:
What can he do with his new powers -- and what are they doing to him?

Before the attack, Tom Harvey was just an average teen. But a head-on collision with high technology has turned him into an actualized App. Fragments of a shattered iPhone are embedded in his brain. And they're having an extraordinary effect on his every thought.

Because now Tom knows, sees, and can do more than any normal boy ever could. But with his new powers comes a choice: To avenge Lucy, the girl he loves, will he hunt down the vicious gangsters who hurt her? Will he take the law into his own electric hands and exterminate them from the South London housing projects where, by fear and violence, they rule?

Not even his mental search engine can predict the shocking outcome of iBoy's actions.

A somewhat dark story about a teenage girl who has one off the rails a bit. Disturbing but brilliant
