Overview

Limitless by Alan Glynn

THE INSPIRATION FOR THE CBS SERIES, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER BRADLEY COOPER

A burnout at thirty-five, months behind on his book, low on cash, and something of a loser, Eddie Spinola could use a shot in the arm. One day he randomly runs into Vernon, his ex-wife's brother, and his ex-dealer. Now employed by a shadowy pharmaceutical company, Vernon has something that might help: a new designer drug that stimulates brain function. One pill and Eddie is hooked. His book is finished within days; he learns and synthesizes information at a frightening rate; and he can go a long time without sleep or food. Naturally, he begins to play the stock market. But when Vernon turns up dead, Eddie makes off with the only stash of the drug in existence. Then come the side effects: black-outs, blinding headaches, and violent outbursts he can't seem to remember.

Alan Glynn's Limitless is a high-concept thriller for this Adderall age, and a haunting meditation on the allure and the curse of human potential.

It was an excellent read but I was expecting it to be similar to the movie. It stopped being similar about halfway through. The ending also was not as satifactory as the movie. Either read the book or see the movie. Do not do both.

Keeps you involved. Has a few holes but are minor compared to the complexity of the story being told.

I saw the movie first then read the book and they are both great. The book and the movie are only about 60 percent the same so treat yourself to both if you have not already. I found the book to be almost impossible to put down.

One of the few books where the movie seems to have come out better than the book itself. Great book if you saw the movie there are alot of parallels but many more things in contrast. The ending is different than in the movie so don't think you know whats going to happen ;) enjoy

Limitless is the hot new novel that is soon to come out as a feature film. judging only from the previews at this point i'm not sure the movie will play the same as the book. this is the story of one Eddie Spinola a down and out lackluster dulleyed writer who just can't seem to get himself going anymore. he is introduced to the drug that brings out one's true potential, but at what price. more drug and a string of problems later and Eddie stands on the edge of control. It's a thrilling story that will keep you awake at night. to me it was almost a new take on Jekyl and Hyde. The character is identifiable and we root for him, but the big question is will Eddie find a way out of the rabbit hole? Find out!
