It's 2031. Thanks to a computer implant, 14-year-old Damon can return to school and attempt to live a normal life after a ghastly accident. Unfortunately, this proves to be a far-fetched dream as he faces one problem after another for using implants in his high school. University proves even more chaotic since Damon becomes friends with Con, a notorious hacker who teaches him some new hacking tricks. When the world is subjected to computerized brain augments, his skills come in handy. Both the government and commercial entities are becoming godlike with technology, and he must do all he can to end it, even if it means being labeled a terrorist. Augment Nation by Scott Overton is a riveting futuristic sci-fi tale that depicts a strategic battle for consciousness and freedom from technology's hold on humanity.

You don't need to bother trying to figure out what a future of using technology like Elon Musk's brain chip would be like. Scott Overton's book allows readers to easily picture this in different scenarios through its highly engaging plot. If you don't trust your lover, you can simply look into their mind to see if they're for real. Also, science fans will be thrilled by the book's smart incorporation of scientific facts, such as that common quartz produces electric currents under stress. The story progresses smoothly through different phases: high school drama, a challenging and fun university life with friends and a lover, dangerous international terrorists, and heroic acts. Extremely entertaining and deeply thought-provoking, Augment Nation will suit readers who love futuristic sci-fi books with a captivating level of intricacy. It got me deep in thought regarding humanity's future with technology. I loved it!
