??You are the next step in human evolution.?

At first, Logan Ramsay isn??t sure if anything??s different. He just feels a little . . . sharper. Better able to concentrate. Better at multitasking. Reading a bit faster, memorizing better, needing less sleep.
But before long, he can??t deny it: Something??s happening to his brain. To his body. He??s starting to see the world, and those around him??even those he loves most??in whole new ways.
The truth is, Logan??s genome has been hacked. And there??s a reason he??s been targeted for this upgrade. A reason that goes back decades to the darkest part of his past, and a horrific family legacy.
Worse still, what??s happening to him is just the first step in a much larger plan, one that will inflict the same changes on humanity at large??at a terrifying cost.
Because of his new abilities, Logan??s the one person in the world capable of stopping what??s been set in motion. But to have a chance at winning this war, he??ll have to become something other than himself. Maybe even something other than human.
And even as he??s fighting, he can??t help wondering: what if humanity??s only hope for a future really does lie in engineering our own evolution?
Intimate in scale yet epic in scope, Upgrade is an intricately plotted, lightning-fast tale that charts one man??s thrilling

Interesting premise but felt too drawn out to me. Author's random descriptions also sometimes felt odd to me. Crouch also didn't add much new discussion to this premise. IMO Ted Chiang's Division by Zero is a more emotional and well-executed short story about this idea. ( )

I loved this book. It had me totally sucked in from the first page until almost the very end. I thought the last few pages were overly sentimental and cliche, but the rest was great. ( )

I’m going to give this one 3.5 stars. It was a good read but the science jargon is a little hard to follow, so you just go with it. Overall I liked the story. ( )
  TheReadingNerd | Oct 22, 2023 |
The opening is just so uninspired and unoriginal.
It's supposedly a sci-fi future but it's really just today's world with some of the climate change predictions applied and a bag full of the most common shallow futurism ideas tacked on. And the selection includes many of the most stupid ideas out there like they now have hyper loops and hyper-sonic passenger jets apparently. It's the most lazy-ass kind of sci-fi out there.
If you are new to any kind of futurism or sci-fi this might be amazing but if you watched a youtube video or two about this stuff it's just shallow derivative work without anything new to offer.

You can stop splitting the atom; you can stop visiting the Moon; you can stop using aerosols; you may even decide not to kill entire populations by the use of a few bombs. But you cannot recall a new form of life.
