Product Description

What readers are saying about Sycamore:* "Interesting and Matrix-like"* "1984 for the Facebook generation"* "Dystopian fans should not miss this one."~Imagine a world where your eyes can't be trusted.Imagine the truth was hidden behind a veil of augmented reality. Protests airbrushed from view. Targeted advertising on every corner.Imagine microchipped consumers under constant surveillance. Taxed for moving. Blinded by convenience. Punished for crimes they haven't yet had the chance to commit.Imagine you were the one responsible for it all, and you were the only one who could stop it...★ ★ ★ ★ ★When the Sycamore corporation releases the ultimate gadget -- an implantable microchip designed to replace smartphones -- society rapidly descends into dystopia.Augmented Reality contact lenses act as the new system's display and simultaneously record everything in the user's field of vision. The potential applications are limitless. So are the surveillance opportunities.Upon discovering Sycamore's true motives and their government-approved plans for compulsory microchipping, the guilt-ridden young programmer behind the chip sets out to expose the truth while he still can.________________________________________________Fully formatted for Kindle with an active Table of Contents.Written in standard International/British English.Praise for Sycamore:"My criteria for giving a book a 5 star review is that it must make me want to keep reading it rather than doing what I really need to do. Sycamore turned out to be one of those books.""A brilliant and relevant sci-fi from a debut author""For those of you who have never read 1984, read this book. For those of you who have, read this book."Praise for Falconer's other work:"Mr. Falconer could be the next Robert Heinlein""Reminiscent of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451""Mix Bradbury, Heinlein, and a dash of Vonnegut and you get this"
