Review of 'Upgrade' on 'Goodreads'

2 stars

Having really enjoyed [b:Dark Matter|27833670|Dark Matter|Blake Crouch||43161998] and [b:Recursion|42046112|Recursion|Blake Crouch||64277987] I had high expectations of this one. Unfortunately, I can't say that they were met. So many things about this book annoyed me, including what I would call the "flying car" syndrome of putting too much detail in explaining how things would work in the future, as if the character is deliberately telling a story to someone from the present. Listing dozens of random gene names that literally mean nothing to anyone except perhaps people with degrees in molecular biology doesn't really do anything for the story, except make you think that the author copied and pasted from a textbook. Too much science, too little fiction. Annoying.

I'm going to stop here. I'm glad to see that others enjoyed the book. I look forward to enjoying the next [a:Blake Crouch|442240|Blake Crouch|] book...
