Book Overview

Warning: The world of 2125 is extremely toxic. It is ruled by huge corporations called Coms. The workers, or Protes, are enslaved. Humanity's only hope is a neurosurgical technique that could unlock the mind's power to alter reality-or destroy it.

I've added this one to my growing collection of sci-fi!

The more sci-fi "ages", the more new authors with great books appear to tantalize and terrorize us with possible futures. In this case, it's a little of both in the 22nd Century where Earth is toxic and masses of people have gone underground while those who are corporation-level Coms live in the Northern Hemisphere near the pole. Fantastic reading. Just as are many other sci-fi books as "Ilium", "Broken Angels", "Spin State", "Newton's Wake", "Stranger in a Strange Land", "Neuromancer", "Snow Crash", "Cyber Hunter" and so forth. Read them all!

Cyber Excitement

I don't usually read much sci-fi, but a friend recommended Hyperthought. I enjoyed the trip. The author did a good job drawing me into the futuristic thriller. I loved the main character and the settings were cinematic. Very cool and would recommend.

A great read!

Earth in 2125 has changed, but human needs and emotions stay the same. Jolie Blanche Sauvage makes a living taking wealthy Com managers on trips to the earth's unhealthy surface. But little does she know what she's in for when she meets Jin, perhaps the most spoiled member of the ruling Com class. Jin craves knowledge, and because she has introduced him to the scientist who alters his brain and puts his life at risk, Jolie is compelled to take the most dangerous trip of her life.The characters are great, and the action is tense. I loved this book, and so did my husband. It's a fast thrilling read, and I highly recommend it.

cutting edge science fiction

In the year 2125 most of the Earth is uninhabitable except at the North and South Poles. Most of the human race lives in domed cities, underground, or under the sea. The land is buffeted by waves of heat, hurricane force winds, and radioactive air. The Coms rule the Northern areas while the masses are indentured servants. The South Pole area is the last bastion of human freedom.Jolie runs a tour service to the top of the planet and though she is a worker her clients are wealthy Coms. On one of her trips she meets Jin, the son of a Com, who is aware that the workers in the north are treated horribly. He volunteers for brain surgery in the hopes of finding a way to defeat his father but when Jolie thinks he's in danger she crosses the world and puts her own life in jeopardy to save him. She also becomes the rallying point for the insurrection of the masses against the Com.M.M. Buckner paints a picture bleaker than Zager and Evans of the earth in the not too distant future unless we clean up our environmental act. The heroine is a revolutionary in the purest sense of the term and the courage of her convictions may prove strong enough to change the geo-political structure of Earth. HYPERTHOUGHT is a cutting edge science fiction that will appeal to fans of plenty of action.Harriet Klausner


HYPERTHOUGHT is a visionary post-modern adventure, with plenty of suspense and nice touches of humor. I couldn't put it down, stayed up late to finish it, and afterward, I kept thinking about it. For me, that's the sign of an excellent book. It raises some interesting questions about the nature of reality. Since what we perceive is actually manufactured in our brains, what benchmark do we have to know it's real? The characters are fresh and appealing, especially the main character, Jolie Sauvage. She's like a whirling dervish. I want to see more from this author, M.M.Buckner.
