What can he do with his new powers and what are they doing to him?Before the attack Tom Harvey was just an average teen But a head on collision with high technology has turned him into an actualized App Fragments of a shattered iPhone are embedded in his brain And I’ve never really been technological I mean I can use a computer I can use a phone I can use a Kindle Sometimes I kind of link them all together if I’m feeling particularly frisky one dayBut when people say that they prefer Windows to Apple I zone out I don’t know whether I’m a Mac or a PC The adverts meant nothing to me except omfg it’s Jeremy and MarkI mean if Jeremy is a Mac and Mark is a PC then surely they’re both as awesome as each other? Do I have to choose between them? I don’t want to No I refuseWhat’s Super Hans? Let’s face it I’m going to be whatever he isIn all seriousness though I cannot believe that this book was written by the same author that wrote Naked which was such an excellent book that I can’t recommend it enoughThis book was I don’t know I can’t even say it wasn’t what I was expecting because it was basically exactly what I was expecting A boy is standing under a block of flats and someone throws an iPhone off the 30th floor and it embeds himself into his head When he wakes up from his coma he discovers that his brain is now aniBrain Brooks’ words not mine Needless to say he’s not an ‘App y chappyGeddit? Appy?Never mindOK so first up I’ll talk about the idea I’m OK with suspending my disbelief when I read books A fact I feel that was proven by me actually picking up this book I understand that this story will never and could never happen If I wanted to read a book where the science was 100% and everything was believable I probably wouldn’t have chosen to read a book where a boy turns into an iPodwould I?So I was OK with this and I was uite happy to read a story where everything was left a bit up in the air Unfortunately it seems Mr Brooks wasn’t There were times when this story descended into a bit of an instruction manual and it left me completely lost and it managed to yank me out of a story that I was actually really involved in There was absolutely tons of info dumping And I’m not saying that in the way that most people mean it with huuuuge chunks of descriptions about a fantasy world just in case you missed that point where the author was being really clever I mean actual info dumping There is part of the iPod instruction manual in a chapter I’m not even jokingI did try and understand the mechanics again literally of what happened to Tom butI mean OK I get that he can hack into people’s phones and bank accounts and stuff but how can he create a forcefield around himself? Have I just got a crap iPhone that doesn’t do that? I have to admit it would be handy Anyone who was annoying me I could just be like “Oh one sec someone’s ringing me” and I’d whip out my phone and ZAP right in the faceThe I tried to understand the delirious I becameOne of my notes is actually “LOLOL But why doesn’t he electrocute himself in the shower?”The thing that was most frustrating about this book was that I know how brilliant Mr Brooks is at writing a great and engrossing plot He did it in Naked and to some extent he did it with iBoyIf you took away the iPlot and the zapping this book would have been so good Seeing the gangs of South London and all the horrifying things they do through Tom’s eyes wasn’t always easy Mr Brooks has this way of really getting into the story into the characters’ psyches and you can be reading it hand over your mouth thinking “No he’s not going to go there” and guess where he goes? ThereAnd I love that about him because even though it was uncomfortable and it was realistic and brilliantBut then iBoy got involved and zap zap zap and I don’t know it just really took something away with it I won’t go into all the gritty details of what happens in this story but it’s so sad and so horrifying and the iPlot seemed to trivialise it almost Which is crazy because I know that Mr Brooks can write emotions and darker subjects with subtlety and tact but this one was just way too muchAlso for extra iLOLZ this main event of this story happened the day before my birthdayYou may be thinking why I carried on reading this book if I didn’t like it at all and that was because of the characters When Tom was Tom and there weren’t any lowercase is lurking anywhere he was brilliant The perfect balance between hero and regular kid I really wanted to get to know him and not iBoy And of course I loved Lucy What a little sweetheartAlso Gram was BRILLIANTI so wish this had been a contemporary book because I know that it would have been unforgettable instead of being memorable for all the wrong reasonsiDisappointedAnd omfg there’s a new series coming soon Who’s excited?
