This is Ken Grimwood s first novel I understand why it didn t reach the success of his most famous book Replay however being a true Grimwood fan it was a must read My sister found this copy for me and now I am on the hunt for the remaining four books including the one he wrote under the name of Alan Cochran And so continues my search of second hand book stallsPS I thought I should add that this cover is not the cover on my book Mine is a hard cover and not a mass market paperback

REVIEW º MZINES.CO.UK Ò Ken Grimwood

Breakthrough

N whose functions are unknown to modern science And when one of those electrodes is stimulated Elizabeth is gripped by strange shattering sensations They are not memories at least not her memories. The story shows its age but it isn t terribly outdated for the time it was published 1976 I liked the story it kept me reading view spoilerI knew it wasn t going to end well even though a part of me had hoped it would It easily symbolizes the car crash that most addictions become if you think about it If you don t break the addiction it can WILL be the end of you hide spoiler

Ken Grimwood Ò 1 CHARACTERS

Twenty six year old Elizabeth Austin has been cured of epilepsy by a new and daring experimental treatment Tiny electrodes implanted in her brain control her seizures and restore her to a normal l.
