The Terminal Man

(1)
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.

Portrait

Born in Chicago in 1942, Michael Crichton first trained as a doctor before going on to become one of the most successful writers in the world. In 1994 he achieved a feat unmatched by any other writer: by having simultaneously a number one TV series, book and movie with, respectively, ER (which he created), Disclosure and Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, on its release the highest-grossing film of all time. He also directed several movies, including The Great Railway Robbery with Sean Connery and Donald Sutherland. His high-concept thrillers were international bestsellers, and in total his books have sold more than 200 million copies worldwide. He died in 2008.

Älter und daher nicht mehr ganz so erschreckend
von zico21 aus Mannheim am 03.05.2012

Der Roman war sicherlich in seinem Erscheinungsjahr 1972 eine erschreckende Fiktion, was mit den damals modernen Techniken zu erreichen war. Allerdings hat sich das inzwischen mit der Allgegenwärtigkeit der Computer und der Möglichkeiten der Hirn- und Transplantationschirugie etwas relativiert. Dennoch ein gutes Buch.
