‘Eden Chip’ by Scott Cramer

Eden Chip

With programmable chips implanted into every human brain, there should be no reason why anyone has to be sad, worried, angry or distressed. But not everyone wants to have their emotions controlled, and eighteen-year-old Raissa sets out change things, ending the power wielded by the mysterious Petrov and his regime. But can she change the world without jeopardising her own hopes for love?

This is an interesting tale by indie sci-fi writer Scot Cramer. He’s taken a George Orwell-type look at a possible future where humans are controlled by implants that can be updated or changed by the powers-that-be. It’s a thought-provoking read that pits the inevitable ‘rebels’ against a domineering government. That said, although I enjoyed it, I did find myself starting to lose interest towards the end, due to what felt like a slightly drawn-out denouement. Other than that, it’s a great read.

    Your mention of George Orwell is very captivating. I think I would enjoy this, Colin.

      I’m sure you would, Robbie. I generally prefer classic sci-fi (HG Wells, John Wyndham etc), so this was a pleasant change.
