And then there’s the descriptions. One display panel talked about advances in pharmacology allowing us to enhance natural abilities and cognitive functions, sort of like steroids for the brain.

However, the females of this novel were often used as love limitlses, and only Melissa and Van Loon’s limit,ess actually talked to Eddie without the story delving into how he liked her eyes or whatever and even then, Melissa was described as something along the lines of “unattractive,” and the secretary was barely even noted.


Lists with This Book. Don’t feed me research just because you did it. A very entertaining book. For a book that’s supposed to be an account of Eddie’s experience with the MDT from memory!! I’m also steering clear of the obvious theme of addition here. I’ve not seen the movie, “Limitless,” based on this book glyn Alan Glynn.

If I were the editor, I would have cut the entire arc glyhn had to do with Van Loon and focused on the other aspects.

That and sales of the re-issued Limitless novel as a film tie-in have helped tremendously with promoting my other books. It has some important points to make about personal responsibility where being morally reprehensible is often seen as a virtue, particularly in the business world. And with option renewals every eighteen months or so for the following few years, it went on paying bills. It was like a condensed history lesson about things I could care less about and that did not further the story alo When I first started this book, I wrote: When I finish a book, I want to move on.

I believe the changes were done intentionally so that the movie would have much more entertainment value. Of course, everything comes with a downside as Eddie starts having memory lapses, during which time he may or may not have seriously injured a person.

The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn

As it turned out, the book was very Hollywood-friendly, and could be pitched in four words: Glynn’s sustained, rapid-fire pace hurls readers headfirst toward a gripping, if bleak, conclusion that makes for some breathless page-turning.

Mostly because of the writing, as mentioned above, but there are other reasons, as well.

Stockpile some funds, it would take you one day of your life to set yourself up for a princely life compared to starting life in case you and the drug have to part ways, but nope, just keep blindly heading forward.

The book had gone out of print aroundand the possibility of a movie being made of it was the one hope I was clinging to, but even that seemed to be receding. The Dark Fields Author s: The book moves at a fast pace and when the deaths and confusion start it go from good to excellent.
