From the fingers of Michael Grant:

"BZRK Reloaded is even better than BZRK. There are scenes in there that made me laugh at the sheer unbridled strangeness and intensity."

BZRK Reloaded took everything BZRK had to offer and kicked it up to eleven. On the other hand, the whole thing suffered from a bit of “middle-book syndrome.” It was…good, but it didn’t really have its own story so much as it was a vehicle for moving us along to the final book.

Middle books are really hard. There’s a mix of good and things that are pretty distinct to middle books, especially in a series like this, which tells one long story instead of something with a m

Oh, I loved it. Definitely. But seriously, I need a nap after all that.

I didn't like it quite so much as book 1. This is book 2 in the BZRK trilogy and it has a lot of action and intrigue and it messed with my mind and the stakes got higher and higher and the catastrophes were BLOODY and HORRIFIC. Michael Grant writes books that scare my braincells. Literally terrify me. I...I could use a hug too, you know. The whole idea of NaNo technolog

I had kept BZRK on my To Read list for a while, so when I got access to an ARC galley from the publisher, I pushed myself to go ahead and check it out of the library to read. I love sci fi novels and while BZRK was inherently nothing special, it was interesting enough to get me into the this sequel.

This sequel, however, was similar to an English homework reading assignment. It seems as if it took me ages to read, and I kept pu

BZRK reloaded by Michael Grant takes place in an alternate present day. Teenagers are the soldiers in this. These teenagers are like Romans with nanotechnology. The main focus of this book is on the NYC cell of BZRK. They are being tracked down by people who want them dead. There are many characters that are just phenomenal.

To sum up the book in one word... Awesome. I'm a nanotech fan so this book was good regardless. Beyond the the tech the characters where great. The plot had its good point an

This book was read and reviewed by my no-worker, Nicole:

**spoiler alert** This book was almost impossible to read.
1)You must have read the first book: BZRK to have any idea what is going on
2)It takes place in the very near future, with the FBI, Google, the United States etc, however there is very advanced nanotechnology and something called biobots
3)It describes people being able to see things on a microscopic level and includes the bacteria on human skin and hair
4)Within the first couple of pag
This book is truly one of my favourites.
Whether it's a personal preference or not, I enjoy books that not only have a strong, well-thought-out plot,innovative concepts, and also characters that aren't just based on basic, generic stocks and cliches but unique characterization. BZRK has all of that for me. The neverending ability of Michael Grant to keep you guessing and guessing wrong is a trait I strongly wish I could have, because the twists he weaves into the story are all synchronized well.
Potential spoilersSsSsSs.

Down in the meat...(As the twitchers say)


I like how we've got Vincent, Nijinsky, Plath, Keats, Wilkes and they're all BZRK pipur but the characteristics are so different from one another. You have the leader whose gone insane, the gay male model who's pushed into being a Number One and he's not enjoying it, the privilege girl planning to run away with the poor boy, the badass maniac with her heh heh heh. (view spoiler)
Michael Grant's books are in no way literary masterpieces. Gone (awesome series) wasn't, and neither is BZRK. I don't expect them to be. And I don't want them to be either, because what I like so much about Grants' books isn't the (non-existent) purple prose and metaphors, it's the fast pacing and quick narrative, the action and different set of characters! In a way I guess you can compare it to I Am Number Four in that they are both pageturners and more plot-driven than character-driven. Still, ...more
i am not so wild on this series as compared to Gone series. somehow, the nanobots technology does not appeal to me. the book is slow-paced. we have two teenagers who are facing some major crossroads in their lives, i.e. becoming a "twitcher" while falling in love with each other (or is it just one of them who is really feeling that way?). sadie/plath is definitely not katniss everdeen, but maybe noah/keats is like peeta.. in a way..
This is the second book to BZRK. They absolutely must be read in order or you'll be very confused and your brain will turn to mush. They are also so awesome you'll have a literary hangover for days where nothing else sounds good and you can't stop thinking about the characters. I was honestly a little nervous about this one. BZRK was so good and so action-packed, I didn't think the sequel could possibly live up to it, but it did. It's possibly even more amazing than the first. If you're looking ...more
I loved this just as much as the first book.
BZRK, in my opinion, was the best sci fi novel I read this summer. It was witty, I liked the concept, I thought all the characters were well thought out and likable. I immediately wanted to read the next book, thinking it would be good or even better than the first one.
What I got was a book that was a big splat of complete blandness.
What was a good premise in BZRK had been completely dumped to make way for POINTLESS new story arcs featuring a shipload of POINTLESS new characters that are so un

Quick & Dirty: Both BZRK and the Armstrong’s are back in the second part of the BZRK trilogy. Even after taking a major hit the BZRK team is not ready to surrender their freedom. They are ready to take any risks to save mankind.

Opening Sentence: Wilkes is Alive and back with us.

The Review:

I have to admit that I did not finish the first one because it was too confusing for me. All the nano and Biot references were too much science for me. I gave this one a

I immediately ordered this after reading the 1st book, this gets even better, nice setup for the 3rd and final book, which comes out next month, can't wait.

More world building and character development in this book and less descriptions of 'being in the meat' which did get a little long winded in the 1st book.

What works so well in this book is the chapters are divided into different characters perspectives which keeps it interesting, mysterious. Adding more characters has really taking this trio
This book was really hard to read. None of the characters made good decisions, and ultimately it starts making you question humanity. The world is just as insanely cool as it was the first one, and I was no less engrossed by that aspect. However, I still find certain relationship's to be dry(ones that aren't mean to be) and certain characters, I felt, were introduced and were meant to have a significant role, but didn't provide much to the story. I think the greatest example of this in the book ...more

4.5 Stars

This one was even better than the first! I did say the series had potential to become really good and it didn’t disappoint. I started reading this one as soon as I’d finished the first, which is usually a good thing for a sequel. I didn’t need to get back into the story and the characters, everything was still crystal. The book sucked me in from page one.

My first thought on this book is that it’s dark. Way darker than the previous one. People get killed, kidnapped, killed by their own a
Scifi is rapidly becoming something I actually least in certain doses. LOL I fell in love with Grant's GONE series and and followed him into the Adam and Eve book and then BZRK. Grant may have opened my eyes to a whole new genre to explore. :-)
Often, an author begins with a bang but over the course of a series, the quality of his story deteriorates. Not so here. The second of the BZRK series easily equalled the beauty, the fast-paced insight of the first. This series is one of the best out there!
I loved every minute of this book.
i love the way Michael Grant narrates.
So many things happened and there is not a single character I dislike reading about.
I don't know how am I supposed to wait until who-knows-when for the next book

A few minor spoilers lie within if you haven't read the first instalment, BZRK.

A Spoiler Free Bit About The Book

BZRK is left shaken after their last battle against Bug Man and the Armstrong Twins. Vincent is crazy and Ophelia is even worse. How will BZRK face up against Bug Man without their best twitcher and leader, Vincent? And how can Plath face that she didn't kill the evil Armstrong twins while she had the chance?

My Review

I was wary when I picked this up. I felt that the original BZRK was a
It took me a while to get into BZRK, and Reloaded more than made up for the time it took me to get attached to this story. The end of the second book has made the wait for the next installment almost painful.

love it so much. great book for teens. I have always loved his humour in his book. he doesnt mess up his books and characters. all characters r unique in their own ways and i just looove how each one of them acts. every one of them have their individual characteristics and I am amazed at him creating this whole bunch of unusual stuffs. I also just love how he can control his book so well like when this character comes up and so on. I love it as much as bzrk and I really do recommend it to teens ...more
Nějak se mi nedařilo pořádně se začíst. A to i přesto, že tahle knížka je fakt "MASO".

Единственото произведение за нанороботи, което ми беше направило впечатление досега беше разказа "Сафари" от Чарлс Шефилд.
Книгата "БЗМЦ: Презареждане" от Майкъл Грант е доста по-мащабна и по-внушителна откъм идеи. Романът е класифициран като антиутопия. Аз бих добавил, че поджанрът на тази книга е апокалиптичен киберпънк. В "БЗМЦ: Презареждане" има много убийства, самоубийства и хора, които под влиянието на различни фактори желаят да унищожат света.
Интересното в това четиво е, че по-голямата час

Sequels are hard. Like really, really hard. Almost never does a sequel feel like the first of the series; it's almost always a disappointment.

Such is not the case BZRK: Reloaded.
Though the characters become fewer in number, the existing ones are developed well given the fast-paced battle/romance/horror story stuff that is going on around them.

It had the same charm and humor ( I'm a sucker for the Downton abbey and hunger Games references. and that @horse_ebooks epigraph was the best) as the firs

Okay, trying this again. Goodreads lost the bio I just spent 30 minutes writing. So now it's just going to be incoherent rambling. Yes, the earlier draft was also incoherent rambling, but way better.
