Waking up in an operating room, much to the surprise of the attending surgeons, Malcolm Weir frantically fights his way out of a secret government installation, located in downtown Los Angeles. Battling through a mass of armed guards and meta-gene operatives, the cyborg warrior realizes he has no memory of how he got there.
The past 11 months are gone.
With a hole in his mind, Weir must retrace his steps for the past year, fighting his way through the nearly endless horde of super powered mercenaries and assassins the government sends after him.
Travel along with Weir, facing some of the most intense action ever put to paper, along with a body count of ridiculous proportions, as he tracks down the secrets trapped in his head. In the end, Weir must stand alone against a former friend and a squad of the deadliest killers ever created, all to learn the terrifying truth behind Project: Hardwired.
I cannot put my finger precisely on why I didn't enjoy this book as much as I wanted to.
Perhaps it was the Keanu Reeves style narration delivery (The characterisations were far better). Perhaps it was the numerous errors (Kirsten,Kristen which is it?). Perhaps it was the product placements which ground my gears? Did we *really* need to know it was a Sony monitor, or an Apple MacBook?
All that said, I think it just didn't excite me the way the author intended. It was all just a bit hollywood for me. I like my fiction to have grit, real emotion and characters I care about.
This had none of that.
If you loved 90's SciFi flicks like Universal Soldier, The Terminator, Red Scorpion then this will be your bag.
