The Terminal Man - used book

ID: 165400020

Doctor Roger McPherson tests a new surgical procedure on Harry Benson, a man suffering from violent seizures. The process implants electrodes in Benson's brain that stimulate his pleasure sensors. Benson, however, isn't satisfied with the level of stimuli and escapes from prison, setting off on a homicidal spree. THE TERMINAL MAN was adapted for a 1974 film of the same name starring George Segal. Publisher NotesA team of surgeons perform an operation on a violent paranoid man in an attempt to electronically control his behavior.Media Reviews"Crichton operates from the very heart of an area called 'verisimilitude,' Comparisons with James Bond's adventures are inevitable; they remain, however, comparisons and not similarities. Dr. Crichton does not mention as many scientific advances as Ian Fleming does brandnames, and his priapic preoccupations are far, far less. Should Bond dynamite a tree, you just know it's going to fall precisely where he wants it; with a Crichton protagonist one is happily, not quite so sure...One regrets that so careful a piece of work should thereby remove itself from art into the area of entertainment."

Details of the book
The Terminal Man

Hearry Benson suffers from violent seizures. When he becomes part of an experimental program that sends electrodes to his brain to calm him, he is in recovery. Until he discovers how to get those soothing pulses more frequently, and then escapes the hopsital--on a murderous rampage with a deadly agenda...., Harry has a problem. Ever since getting in a car accident, he's suffered from "thought seizures," violent fits in which he attacks other people. He used to be an artificial intelligence researcher, which may explain why he targets anyone who either works on machines or who acts like a machine--mechanics, gas-station attendants, prostitutes, exotic dancers. But there's hope: he can become part machine himself, undergoing "Stage 3," an experimental procedure implanting 40 electrodes deep in the pleasure centers of his brain. The surgery is successful, and blissful pulses of electricity short-circuit Harry's seizures. That is, until Harry figures out how to overload himself with the satisfying jolts and escapes on a murderous rampage. One of Crichton's earliest, playing ably on '70s fears of computers and mind control. --Paul Hughes
