The year is 2021. Maggie Stone had been normal, once, before the tiny device took over her life. It's called a Vertix, a small invasive machine that attaches to the back of your neck and links to your brain stem. There is no need for a phone. With a Vertix, you are the phone, you have the power to see and control every aspect of social media you want with a thought. Some people can handle it, but others, like Maggie Stone, soon find they can't function without the Vertix, without the ability to connect. Maggie's world spirals out of control as her addiction grows, endangering and pushing away reality. Can she kick the social addiction or will the thrill of the connection pull her under?… (mais)

Maggie Stone reluctantly goes along with her brother, Andy, and her best friend/roommate, Sarah, to the launch party of the Vertix H2. The Vertix is an innovative device that connects to your brain stem and allows you to control virtual reality with your mind. It becomes an addiction for Maggie and it's quickly ruining her life.

I could not put this book down. Although Maggie was frustrating and kind of childish at times I was so wrapped up in her life. Everyone felt real and this new Vertix could very well happen in the near future. It sounds amazing, too, to be honest. There were some cool apps. Since it's split screen, you could see the places you're looking at as they are in the present as well as how they looked in the past. Very interesting and creative. The author lost me towards the end - it was just a tiny bit too long and felt different from the rest of the book as Maggie's addiction and her life spiraled out of control, but overall I enjoyed this story of being addicted to the newest technology, social media and virtual reality. It's relatable in this day and age.

I won a copy of this book through LibraryThing. Thank you to BHC Press. ( )

I've recently had the pleasure of reading Wired by Caytlyn Brooke, a young adult science-fiction that deals with social media and addiction.

For me, reading this book felt like I was approaching a train wreck. From the distance, there is something but I'm unsure. The closer I get, the more apparent the devastation becomes. I simply cannot turn away from the scene, transfixed by the horror, and that is also true for this book.

In the beginning, I hoped that the main character would heed the close calls and steer away from the dangers of this technology. Alas, the synopsis and chapter titles only served to remind me that things would get worse, far worse.

How does it end? You'll have to read to find out, and I highly recommend that you do. Just be aware that this book may have you look at your smartphone and associated social media feeds in a different way! ( )

I don't normally read this genre but it was interesting. The concept of being addicted to technology is getting to be something more people can relate to.
Maggie, her roommate, Sarah, & her brother, Andy all get the latest in technology, the Vertix H2. It attaches to the back of your neck & you can get on social media or any app and have a virtual reality like experience and control it with your mind. It's a rush that is intoxicating and quite addictive. But Maggie finds out that it's an addiction that can be deadly. As her addiction grows, she finds it harder and harder to disconnect and get back to reality. ( )

Wired from the mind of Caytlyn Brooke is an awesome display of world building up and down from beginning to end, from the holographic communications of the obsolete iJewel to the Cannon Eye tech for corrective lenses to Weather Cat (which includes a snazzy bit of character building) for boring weather apps. At the heart of it all is the Vertix H2 a technological wonder conceived by the literary genius of Brooke and reminiscent of Orson Scott Card’s “desk” in Ender’s Game which all but predicted the coming of the tablet.

But this brilliant raw, well-written sci-fi is not a treatise on tech as much as it is the addiction to it. It’s timely, foreboding, and possibly a foreshadowing of things to come. Brooke doesn’t dress this dystopian for adults, that could be read by teens, up. She doesn’t pull any punches. It’s ugly in all ways addictions can be. Maggie is your typical complex character that has a good amount going for her and at the same time, like you and me, longs for a little bit more. And she’s willing to work for it until she stumbles across the Vertix and all Hell breaks loose. Brooke writes with a fierce sensually that jumps off the page. Wired reminds me of a book version of Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem For A Dream with more than a touch of Stephen King. Quite a breakthrough. It’s what I hoped Ready Player One would be. Looking forward to anything else Brooke writes. ( )

This was a compelling story about technology addiction - in this case, a future technology that connect people directly to the internet and their apps. It was a quick read, but many parts verged on the gross (descriptions of vomiting, gore, etc) which was not what I expected when I picked up the story. ( )
