Upgrade is the new mind-bending thriller from Blake Crouch, author of the bestselling Dark Matter and Recursion.
“You are the next step in human evolution. . ."
At first, Logan Ramsay isn’t sure if anything’s different. He just feels a little sharper. Better able to concentrate. Better at multitasking. Reading a bit faster, memorizing better, needing less sleep. But before long, he can’t deny it: something’s happening to his brain. To his body. He’s starting to see the world, and those around him, even those he loves most, in whole new ways.
The truth is, Logan’s genome has been hacked. And there’s a reason he’s been targeted for this upgrade. A reason that goes back decades to the darkest part of his past, and a horrific family legacy. Worse still, what’s happening to him is just the first step in a much larger plan, one to inflict the same changes on humanity at large, and at a terrifying cost. Because of what Logan’s becoming, he’s the one person in the world capable of stopping what’s been set in motion. But to have a chance at winning this war, he’ll have to become something other than himself. And even as he’s fighting, he can’t help wondering: what if humanity’s only hope for a future really does lie in engineering our own evolution…
‘Imaginative, perfectly paced, and extremely clever. Upgrade walks the fine line between page-turning thriller and smart sci-fi. Another killer read from Blake’ – Andy Weir
‘A highly original science-fiction adventure thriller, by turns mysterious, fascinating and deeply moving – exploring the very nature of what it means to be human. Spellbinding’ – Alex Michaelides, author of The Silent Patient and The Maidens
‘Amazingly gripping and totally immersive. Brilliant (near-future) world-building and impeccable plot’ – Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander series
‘A hugely entertaining and emotionally resonant thriller that you’ll be thinking about long after you turn the last page’ – Veronica Roth, author of Chosen Ones and Divergent
