Loved it. I also loved Daniel Wilson’s other novel Robopocalypse.
This is near future science fiction set in the US. It moves quickly and it draws you in. It is not long, a Sunday afternoon will do.
Here’s the premise. Neurological disease or low intelligence can be cured with a device implanted directly on the brain. It is a routine treatment, even government sponsored. However, the device also boosts, or amplifies, intelligence and other abilities. As the number of super-smart amped people grows, a Senator plays on the insecurities of the “regular” humans to lash out against the amps. The hero is an amped schoolteacher with a unique implant.
According to Wikipedia, a Robopocalypse movie was planned and either dropped or put on hold. I can easily see Amped as a movie.
