Synopsis:

Harry Benson suffers from violent seizures. So much so that he requires a police guard when entering a Los Angeles hospital for treatment.

Dr. Roger McPherson, head of the prestigious Neuropsychiatric Research Unit, is convinced he can cure Benson through a procedure known as stage three. During this highly specialized surgery, electrodes are placed deep in Benson's brain, sending monitored soothing pulses to its pleasure canyons.

The operation is a success — until Benson discovers how to get the pulses with increasing frequency. He escapes from the hospital, a homicidal maniac with a deadly agenda....

Falk2, February 16, 2009 (view all comments by Falk2)
The Terminal Man is one of Michael Crichton's very first novels. I couldn’t enjoy this book because there is a lot of technical (scientific) talk which only brain surgeons would understand. I’m definitely not a science person, so it was sometimes hard for me to understand what was going on. The characters are not developed well, and it took a while to remember who was who (there are many doctors in the story). If you are really, really interested in science or good at science, I would strongly recommend you to read The Terminal Man. Crichton is a talented author, and I recommend you (not scientific people) to read his other books, such as Jurassic Park!
