Fast moving thriller examining what might happen if some humans were technologically enhanced, for medical and then increasingly for elective reasons in ways that make them smarter or more athletically gifted than most of the populace. How might society and politicians react? The author's PhD in robotics lends a nice credibility to the technology concepts. Owen, a schoolteacher with a neural amp in his head that controls his seizures and that he learns has the capacity to do more, gets caught up in an incipient war between the amped and nonamped, or Pures. 3.5 stars, because I am a picky reader.
