Imaginative, perfectly paced, and extremely clever. Upgrade walks the fine line between page-turning thriller and smart sci-fi. Another killer read from Blake
From the first page of Upgrade, it’s clear you’re in the hands of a master storyteller; Blake Crouch leads you on a rollercoaster ride in this highly original science-fiction adventure thriller, by turns mysterious, fascinating and deeply moving – exploring the very nature of what it means to be human. Spellbinding
Amazingly gripping and totally immersive. Brilliant (near-future) world-building and impeccable plot. You don’t so much sympathize with the main character as live inside his skin
Blake Crouch doesn’t pull any punches in this taut and evocative examination of what humanity really is – and how it fails us. Upgrade is a hugely entertaining and emotionally resonant thriller that you’ll be thinking about long after you turn the last page
