Unlimited by Davis Bunn is a book based on a screenplay of a movie coming out this fall. This is one time that I'm sure I'll enjoy the movie more than the book. I don't fault the author for that because he only used what he had to work with. I didn't really enjoy this book. I figured out who the bad guy was very early on so that aspect was ruined for me. The action was fast paced but there was so much technological mumbo-jumbo that I got confused and bewildered. I finished the book with little satisfaction in what I'd read. Maybe this was more of a man-read than a female one? Anyway, not my cup of tea.
