    Started of slow then draws you in.

    Started of slow then draws you in. Although it is a "mind" story )in a sense) I think the author could have got us more involved in a few of the characters. Would like a little more emotion. Other then that it is definitely a very good read and makes you think. I just got contacted about a second book so of course I will read it.

    Imagine the possibility of being able to program your own brain

    Imagine the possibility of being able to program your own brain - from subroutines which allow you to be more confident in social settings, to shared psychedelic experiences, to controlling your body's responses to pain, fear and the like. Nexus, a substance created by the novel's protagonists, allows you to do these things and more.
    Of course, this draws lots of attention - from governments, researchers, organized crime.
    Nexus is a delightful romp of a book, unafraid to grapple with big questions about the individual vs society, yet at the same time filled with lots of delight of the sex and drugs and rock-n-roll variety. Except now it's sex and nanotechnology and electronic music. The book contains explorations of the dark side of such power as well as the desire for freedom and the creation of a new collective view of the world.
    For me, Nexus takes a spot on the shelf with William Gibson's Neuromancer and Warren Ellis' Crooked Little Vein as top-notch debut novels; Naam's writing tugs you along, eager to discover what lurks down this dark alley, who's pulling what strings. I look forward eagerly to more from this author.
