Review by

Eddie is a freelance writer, a bit of a slob, with a few regrets. He runs into his ex-brother in law and ends up on a drug that unlocks the full potential of his brain (apparently.) From there everything changes, but like most drugs there are just a few side effects, and they might get him killed.I read this because I'd seen the film and thought it must have made a much better book. It did. The writing is strong and the story is compelling. Unfortunately, since the movie followed the book very closely I already knew what would happen. I don't feel like I can adequately judge the book, except to say that I've recommended it to people who haven't seen the film, and I'll certainly read more by this author.
