Mind Catcher by John Darnton, Dick Hill

New York City: A thirteen-year-old boy named Tyler lies in a hospital, his brain damaged in a tragic accident. By his bedside, his father stands helplessly, as two very different scientists take charge of the boy's fate. One is a neurosurgeon, whose unorthodox experiments use computers to control a patient's physical responses during surgery. The other is a researcher with experiments of his own, ones so secret he can reveal them to no one: his attempts to find the spark of human consciousness...and capture it forever.

Together, they will produce a result beyond anything they could have conceived, sending Tyler far beyond the frontiers of medical science into an astonishing netherworld of man and machine - a place no living person has gone before and from which one desperate person will try to bring him back....

This book started out with a great premise. The first few pages had me hooked - or so I thought. About 50 pages in I started getting bored. Soon I was skimming multiple pages at a time. The author obviously did extensive research for this novel and, sadly, decided to put every bit of it into the story. I found the constant intricate medical talk distracting. The amount of information was unnecessary and took me out of the story. Also, the characters had a tendency to go through two or three pages of introspection - over and over - to the point where the story lost its zing. This book could easily have been 100 pages shorter without losing anything. In fact, a shorter version would have gained intensity (for me, anyway).

This was a good book.I only gave it 3 stars because it did have some dull spots in it.Kind of got you of track of what was going on.But I wasn't disapointed that I read it.

Very disappointing, slow-moving book. I love mystery books but could not work up an interest in this one no matter how I tried.
