Review: The R.E.M. Effect




Synopsis:

One pill. Countless side effects.
From J.M. Lanham comes a heart-pumping thrill ride that puts a science-fiction twist on the future of medicine, technology, and philosophy.
It’s 2021 and Paul Freeman just landed a job with Asteria Pharmaceuticals, a world leader in revolutionary drug development. Paul knows the company’s future is riding on the success of their latest product – a sleeping pill designed to interact with the human genome to deliver the perfect eight-hour sleep cycle.
Just a few blocks from Asteria’s Atlanta headquarters, troubled self-help guru Donny Ford is selling a different kind of drug, empowering followers to take control of their lives using a sacred meditation technique skeptics believe may have already taken his mind to a dangerous place.
3,000 miles away, war-hardened journalist, Claire Connor sits captive in a top-secret facility hidden deep in the Costa Rican jungle, guilty of two offenses: seeking help for a sleep disorder, and asking too many questions.
When these worlds collide, the three will discover just how far some companies are willing to go to protect the bottom line.

Review:

The R.E.M. Effect by J.M. Lanham is one brilliant science fiction thriller. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. The writing style blew me away. Every pages adds to the intense situations. Danger, medical science, and more. J.M Lanham has created characters that make this a fascinating read. Each one adds to the plot. Making it build up into one explosive book. Those interested in pharmaceuticals, technology and action…then this is definitely a recommended read. Despite the topics introduced the material was super easy to read and follow along. I personally love anything that deals with corruption and the government doing things it shouldn’t. The R.E.M. Effect has all of that. The human brain, is a great topic and it’s used in dark way. Humans are always experimenting on and for something…how far it goes can be deadly and frightening. Overall, I recommend this book to readers everywhere and look forward to reading The R.E.M. Project.
