    I had such a good time reading Upload! I found the story to be immediately engaging and appreciate how clearly I was brought into the various digital landscapes. The whole story was captivating with some wonderful twists at the end. I've already passed the book along to a number of friends and hope more pick it up on my recommendation.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Upload, Mark McClelland’s first novel. In fact, I think I will read it again. There was so much to absorb. Mark painted a vivid picture of life in another world. There were so many details, so many things happening, and so many layers. I could picture Nurania, I could feel the humidity, I could taste the yolos, and I could hear Scorpio whispering in my ear. Upload is hard to pin down. Yes, it is science fiction, but it is so much more complicated than that. It is a great way to lose yourself in another world. You really feel Raymond’s pain and awkwardness. Who wouldn’t want to escape if they could, to a world of their own making? I really hope Mark writes a sequel as I was not ready to exit this V world. There was so much more I wanted to know, to understand. I am hoping for a film adaptation, so I can experience Nurania and all that Raymond imagined.

    A satisfying blend of hard science fiction and film noir, Upload explores the ramifications of virtual existence against a backdrop of precarious relationships and impending retribution, while building toward a thrilling final act. It made me ponder whether utopia can be found, or dystopia can be avoided, when one has full control of their domain.

    "Upload" is, in my opinion, a great example of the best style of science fiction: the kind that uses futuristic gadgetry and other worlds to teach us something about our inner selves; to reach us in a way we generally don't appreciate when stark reality isn't couched in fascinating layers of alternate-universe story. I loved the plot and the theme, and felt the anti-hero was worth the emotional investment. I'm already looking forward to reading about the first human brain upload in a science magazine or newspaper headlines in the not-too-distant future.
