Theta Head by Greg Dawe
Genre: Techno Thriller
Where to Get It:
Stark naked consciousness is exposed like a raw nerve as Georgia’s search for her missing boyfriend, Ben, takes her from London through Asia.
On route she discovers that Ben has been using a neuroscience technology – one that offers the potential of complete liberation to anyone who uses it. It is a technology Georgia must embrace if she is to find Ben, but one that is such an intimate catalyst for change Georgia isn’t sure she can handle the side of herself it uncovers.
It is only her desire to find Ben which drives her on; a force which leads her to the Theta Heads and a choice: continue using the technology to hack away at her layers of mental static and find the real reason he disappeared, or let go and face a future without him.
Theta Head – technology doesn’t need a mind of its own, it can have ours.
What they're saying about it:
"Fantastic neuroscience thriller set in Thailand. Theta Head is 'The Beach' but for the iPod generation. Theta Head is a mystery which mixes new world technology with old world Buddhist faith. The main premise of the book centres around the disappearance of Ben and his girlfriend, Georgia as she travels to Thailand from London to find out what happened to him after he became entranced with a new technology to help him find himself. Will Georgia find him and to find him she will have to use the very technology she suspects led to his disappearance. An excellent book."--Amazon UK Reviewer
