In Amped, people are implanted with a device that makes them capable of superhuman feats. The powerful technology has profound consequences for society, and soon a set of laws is passed that restricts the abilities - and rights - of "amplified" humans. On the day that the Supreme Court passes the first of these laws, 29-year-old Owen Gray joins the ranks of a new persecuted underclass known as "amps." Owen is forced to go on the run, desperate to reach an outpost in Oklahoma where, it is rumored, a group of the most enhanced amps may be about to change the world - or destroy it.

Would you be willing to try another book from Daniel H. Wilson? Why or why not?

Yes, Wilson has a great story telling style and his characters are believable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but very close. I finished this book in a week. Which is quick for me.
