Terminal Man

Crichton, Michael Author

9780099442110: Terminal Man

Harry Benson is a man troubled by violent seizures and blackouts, with grave doubts about what occurs during those lost hours. When two surgeons approach him with a drastic new treatment for his extreme fits he leaps at the chance, even though it means having electrodes planted deep into his brain. The surgeons are so obsessed with trying out their new theory they ignore warnings from another doctor that the man they are about to experiment on is a psychopath, who believes there is no difference between man and machine. It is too late when they realise what kind of monster they've unleashed on the world...The Terminal Man is a fast-paced thriller about the grave danger of technology falling into the wrong hands, from the master storyteller behind Jurassic Park and The Andromeda Strain.

Review:

Harry has a problem. Ever since getting in a car accident, he's suffered from "thought seizures," violent fits in which he attacks other people. He used to be an artificial intelligence researcher, which may explain why he targets anyone who either works on machines or who acts like a machine--mechanics, gas-station attendants, prostitutes, exotic dancers. But there's hope: he can become part machine himself, undergoing "Stage 3," an experimental procedure implanting 40 electrodes deep in the pleasure centers of his brain. The surgery is successful, and blissful pulses of electricity short-circuit Harry's seizures. That is, until Harry figures out how to overload himself with the satisfying jolts and escapes on a murderous rampage. One of Crichton's earliest, playing ably on '70s fears of computers and mind control. --Paul Hughes

From the Inside Flap:

Hearry Benson suffers from violent seizures. When he becomes part of an experimental program that sends electrodes to his brain to calm him, he is in recovery. Until he discovers how to get those soothing pulses more frequently, and then escapes the hopsital--on a murderous rampage with a deadly agenda....
