Audio book read by Jeff Gurner Influx is a techno-thriller that I thoroughly enjoyed the whole way through.
The question of what happens when a small group is allowed to hoard technological advances is very interesting here - is it all really for the greater good?

The story kept up a pretty good pace throughout and did not slow down much even once the mystique of the fantastical technology was revealed. That anticipation almost always delivers but some books slow down after that reveal happens.
There was a moment or two with Influx that I thought that could happen but Daniel Suarez did a great job of keeping parts interesting that could have been pretty dry. It does mention the prison in the description of the book and I didn't know if I was in store for a The Count of Monte Cristo There are many technologies at play in this novel and Suarez made great use of them for some good suspense and actions sequences using them.
The only small gripe I had with the novel is that the technologies work too well. Sure they have some really bright minds working on these things but to turn around production quality material in so little time, covertly, and for those things to seemingly not have glitches is kind of unbelievable even for fiction.
There were a couple of minor holes in the usage but overall it was really well done. He was always clearly understood and the voices were distinct enough that I could usually tell which character was doing the talking view spoiler [barring any clones hide spoiler ]. I would enjoy listening to other books narrated by Jeff Gurner. A departure from Dan's prior books, but every bit as good. At the core of Influx is an examination of what happens when government shifts from providing for the common defense to protecting society from itself.
This was a thrilling read - will be a big hit when it comes out in February. View 1 comment. Cheesy writing and tone, won't read Daniel Suerez again. I have to say, I'm sadly disappointed. I've come to rely on Suarez as a 'near' fiction writer. His previous books were largely based on manipulation of existing technology, or close future invocations.
That was his strong selling point to me. The books were full of technical descriptions making the reality and feasibility of them compelling. This book Throws all that to the wind, and pics up a an anti-matter gun. Defying gravity? Why not!? Suarez attempts too much, too fast, causing the whole thing to just feel Even the very end is The book started out in an unpromising way, and I thought it was going to be merely a string of cliches.
But after the first couple of chapters, it surprised me. Things got more interesting. Towards the end, though, it dipped back into eye-glazing ordinariness. Our hero, John Grady, invents something called a gravity mirror, a device that makes gravity flow up instead of down. He's very proud of his discovery, at least at first. But after his start up along with his partners and investors is bombed and everyone is killed or so he thinks , he wakes up in the "Bureau of Technology Control" or BTC, a rogue Federal agency tasked with preventing the release of technologies it deems "too advanced".
Scientists seized by the BTC either cooperate with them or end up in a BTC run prison or "research facility" called Hibernity which is in a secret location. The prisoners are all isolated from each other in underground cells and it is impossible to escape. The shenanigans begin. The book ends with a chase scene featuring various clashes of futuristic weapons, etc. The most interesting part of the book is Grady's appalling stay in Hibernity.
This might have been a much better book if it weren't trying so hard to be a B-grade science fiction action movie. I received a free copy of this book from Penguin's First Reads program. This book was great! A book full of genius scientists using technology to fight back - love it!
Makes me want to pick up a science book and learn what the heck fusion energy is. Anyway, this book was entertaining and unpredictable.
I really couldn't guess where the plot was headed, so it kept me engaged and wanting to read more. Even though some of the scientific theories went over my head, I was still engaged and enjoyed the I received a free copy of this book from Penguin's First Reads program. Even though some of the scientific theories went over my head, I was still engaged and enjoyed the action and plot turns.
After reading so many plots about love triangles in YA fiction the past year, this novel was a refreshing departure into something a little more cerebral. I give this book high marks and recommend it to everyone! Fans of technothrillers. Like Michael Crichton , the author he is compared to on the cover, Daniel Suarez has his sights on the forefront of society and technology.
He takes cutting edge ideas and wonders "what if? Suarez isn't trying to be "literary," he is writing thought experiments on current hot-button issues. In his previous book, Kill Decision , it was about drones, in this one, it's anti-gravity -- among other technology th Like Michael Crichton , the author he is compared to on the cover, Daniel Suarez has his sights on the forefront of society and technology.
In his previous book, Kill Decision , it was about drones, in this one, it's anti-gravity -- among other technology the black ops Bureau of Technology Control hides away, such as fusion. The writing in this book could best be described as workmanlike. It is sparse on description and to the point, which I enjoy, with the minor exception of some techno-babble, mostly in two specific scenes -- the gravity mirror exposition in the first chapter and the scene where Jon learns how to use the gravity mirror boots later in the book.
The characterization is a bit of a shortcoming, especially with protagonist Jon Grady, who showed little signs of personal development considering what he experienced, and antagonist Hedrick, who made the villainy of Avatar's Colonel Quaritch look subtle by comparison.
However, perhaps oddly, some of the supporting characters, specifically Alexa, Cotton and the A. Varuna, had more depth and nuance.
But Suarez is at his best when technology is in the forefront -- such as a chilling torture scene where Grady is being interrogated by an A.
One nagging question I had reading this is why weren't the two splinter-BTC groups more in focus at any point? That plot-line seemed very underdeveloped, and I wonder if it was left open for a potential sequel. All in all, this is a great approach to near-future sci-fi -- and without any aliens or spaceships -- and it makes for an impressive techno-thriller, even when things start to spin further and further beyond the realm of plausibility as the book draws to its climax.
Hard science fiction that grabs the reader by the throat and doesn't let go. A haunting tale about the government trying to protect us from ourselves. The premise is that for the last fifty years an increasingly powerful bureau of the federal government has been identifying and sequestering scientific breakthroughs--and their inventors--because such inventions, no "Anything before you're thirty-five is new and exciting, and anything after that is proof that the world's going to hell.
The premise is that for the last fifty years an increasingly powerful bureau of the federal government has been identifying and sequestering scientific breakthroughs--and their inventors--because such inventions, no matter how beneficial, might dispute society.
Good development, pace and storytelling--even though it opens with twenty pages of techno-babble. Interestingly that the rest of the government tries to contain the rogue bureau without telling, much less involving, the elected branches because they hold the people and their representatives in as low esteem as does the BTC.
Recent research suggests that the "civic gene", or at least a disposition to self-sacrifice on behalf of the greater good, does exist. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I loved Daemon and Freedom TM.
I thought I'd love Influx. What's not to love? Cutting edge technothriller just this side of sci-fi? A secret shadowy organisation keeping vast technological advances all to itself to "protect" the world from an influx of new ideas and destabilizing influences. A genius who won't join up. A battle for the freedom of invention and dreams. Sounds fantastic. Should have been fantastic. Jon Grady.
Abused and tortured genius. His life and his work stolen. Eventually even parts of his memories. Do I feel bad for him? Of course I do. Only after his escape despite being kept in a hole in the ground literally for years In short I never found anyone to like in the story. I never found any of the deaths either necessary nor compelling. Poorly written, poorly structured, poorly paced. There was one bit early on in which one character says something like - now your are just stringing scientific words together in a meaningless way, and I'm thinking exactly.
But there were lots and lots and lots of interesting ideas and this book did eventually get going. But not well enough to rescue the book as a whole. I like Daniel Suarez's books. His genre is technology thrillers, and his perspective and knowledge is different from any other author that I have read.
He could be a chronicler of our possible dark future. One doesn't expect much from this genre other than some mind-stretching ideas and a passable plot.
Influx has as its premise the invention of anti-gravity by a young genius, Grady, and the evil rogue government entity that tries to steal it from him. The plot is right out of Count of Monte Cristo. Our hero is unjustly imprisoned. He languished in solitary. A mysterious neighbor in another cell makes contact. Mysterious neighbor engineers our hero's escape. Our hero sets out for revenge.
In Influx though it is all about the technology, which, in this book, Suarez doesn't even make seem plausible. Grady, as a character, has a checklist of attributes: Loves freedom?

Defeats the villain? Gets the beautiful girl at the end? The parts of this book that thrilled me were the descriptions of how it feels to fly around in an anti-gravity suit. These are made for the movies. In fact this whole book reads like a movie script. If you like erudite, stylish sci-fi, pass by in haste.
Find Neal Stephenson's books instead. Especial Anathem. You won't be sorry. Aug 22, Hank rated it really liked it Shelves: I was fairly skeptical at the beginning of the book, the amount of technobabel was astounding and somewhat off-putting.
Suarez, however, wove it all together and created one of his trademark thrillers, from about chapter 7 to the end I was all in. One particular section of the book had a huge effect on me, the prison they put John in was absolutely and completely horrifying to me, I will have nightmares about it probably for the rest of my life.
Everyone has triggers. Spiders, snakes, child abu I was fairly skeptical at the beginning of the book, the amount of technobabel was astounding and somewhat off-putting. Spiders, snakes, child abuse, teenage love triangles, whatever, this prison is mine by a long shot. Great book that was a bit formulaic and heavy on the jargon. First off, I love Daniel Suarez's books. This book, Influx, was no different. While not quite as packed with tantalizingly plausible technology as his previous books Freedom made me lust after its tech, Kill Decision terrified me with its plausibility , Influx is a consistently fun ride into a future that could actually be right here with us now, with us blissfully ignorant.
Or not. No ma First off, I love Daniel Suarez's books. No matter which side of the "tends to believe in conspiracy theories" line you fall on, this is a great high tech thriller and a great book.
Still love Suarez, can't wait to read whatever's next from him. He has to lay off trying to do romance, it's just not his forte. That being said, the action is good, pacing is good but the characters are bland, not sure why I was supposed to sympathize with the "hero" and frankly the ending could have been a mind blowing matrix style thing but instead the humans win.
Yay humans are smarter than bad guys with powerful tech! Oh look one of the AIs wanted to be more human Oh wait that's Oz. Jan 01, Arnis rated it really liked it Shelves: What a super suspenseful high energy read! This book, 'Influx', will be difficult to put down, so I recommend beginning this book only if you have a few days of uninterrupted hours. Otherwise, there certainly will be pining and misery if you have to wait long to get back to it.
Although there are some hard science-fiction elements, this novel is more of a thriller with cool tech-toys fun. One of the characters, Jon Grady, is a genius. He has invented an anti-gravity device. He has worked for this What a super suspenseful high energy read! He has worked for this outside of normal channels such as within a university or a corporation. He has been a maverick his entire life and most legitimate scientists never gave him a second glance. Not a man to allow social or professional disapproval to bother him, he has persevered and picked up interest from willing financial backers and grants here and there, enough to move forward with his radical theories.
And now, success! He knows he will be awarded the Nobel Prize for developing quantum mechanisms which reflect gravity, like a mirror reflects light. On the night he and his team demonstrate floating billiard balls to their backers successfully and begin to celebrate, they are disturbed when armed men break into their lab! These men are dressed in yellow jumpsuits with gas masks and a camera, filming the lab. One of the peculiar men steps out and says, "His judgement be upon you, Jon Grady!
Grady's life is upside down for the next several years. Evil stalks the world, but not whom Grady or the government or police believe it to be. The religious terrorists who kidnapped Grady are a front for a secret organization with incredible technology - the Bureau of Technological Control. Their original purpose of suppressing advanced technologies for the good of Mankind has been recently hijacked by a martinet leader, Graham Hedrick.
Hedrick was promoted to director and he is now in control of what was originally an organization created by the United States government. The reins of technology, he feels, belong to one man alone - himself. Only he understands how dangerous these technologies would be if allowed to promulgate throughout the nations of the world. Kidnapping the scientists and taking charge of their inventions until conditions are right for their release is the mission he completely supports - until he begins to realize the job of managing and expanding the wonderful sciences behind plasma weapons, fusion energy, robots, antimatter guns, clone soldiers, diamond-made protective gear, electromagnetic gadgets, sentient AI computers and genetically enhanced humans who never age should be trusted to him, and only him - for everyone's protection, of course.
The organization's other employees should be on an only need-to-know basis for now. That's the smart thing to do. If the scientists and governments don't agree, well, that's too bad. Hedrick has been rogue for awhile and nobody noticed. However, he is ready to be noticed NOW. Grady, suffering a cruel imprisonment, has lost everything.Would you like us to take another look at this review?
