The Dark Fields
Imagine a drug that focused you so intensely you could read a stack of books in just a few hours and remember every word, learn a foreign language in the space of a quiet evening at home. Imagine a drug that allowed you to process information so quickly you could see patterns in the stock market, a drug that made you so charming you could seduce a room full of strangers in a matter of minutes, or land any job you wanted.
Eddie Spinola is on such a drug. It's called MDT, and it's success in a bottle - a designer drug that's re-designing his life.
MDT is helping Eddie to become the kind of man he's always dreamed of being, but as he morphs into the picture of intellectual and financial success on the outside, he starts falling apart on the inside - headaches, blackouts, violent outbursts. But now it's too late to go back; he's hooked, and the supply that once seemed limitless is starting to dwindle.
As Eddie tries to trace the other users, uncovering MDT's shady origins and the mystery behind his dealer's death, the drug that once seemed like a dream come true is looking more and more like his worst nightmare.

Lots of links online on this Anyway, the cautionary tale potential here wasn't as developed as it could have been Yes, people die from MDT, they do die from all sorts of things Social, posthuman, psychological, historical Even the idea of intuition being the postintellectual application of superior information handling Instead of exploring all that intellectual goodness we got a clear view at the cardboard cutouts of Russian mafia. Stupid mafia.
Needing a history of its greatest illegal hits, of all things. And taking MDT, as well.
Well, if the author was going to refer to Russian mafia, he shouldn't have really called them 'zhuliki'.
W: He was still a bonehead, a zhulik. Anyway, the mafia were pale readymade cutouts. The plot Like who and why and what for offed the dealer, Vernon?
Why did our guy start eating a bunch of god knows what tablets? What kind of drug trials are performed this way?
Couldn't that outsised brain could have been used from the beginning to: - analysing what the hell the MDT was and - how to improve it and - how to get rid of all the deadly side effects and - where did it get from and - how to fix the supply and - where to store the MDT and - what else can be done other than doing the investment analysis that can be done perfectly well without any enhancements, thank you?
The idea that the author, maybe unintentionally, got across is that no matter how much potential people have, they inevitably waste it. Imagine you get access to drugs that make you the smartest person around.
What would you do? There were also no more crushed pizza-boxes to be seen in the apartment, or empty beer cans, or dirty socks … and every single inch of surface space was polished and gleaming … c Seriously???!!!The ending is a downbeat one as opposed to the film , where he finally glimpses the scale of the conspiracy behind the drug, amidst a backdrop of war as the USA invades Mexico rather prescient to what is going on today in the US elections, considering it was written in I couldn't give it five stars due to some repetitive situations between the halfway and three-quarter points of the book, but still a fun ride.
But, you know, it probably would be better if he had worked on his writing style a bit. I don't have anything against European authors, it was just that the story was based on Americans in New York, and the dialogue did not match up.
If he stops, everything will be fine. I also have major problems with how long it took him to really count how many pills he had and figureout how much time he had left, especially after he saw what less than a dozen pills did to some other people. It's called MDT, and it's success in a bottle - a designer drug that's re-designing his life.
