    • Where to begin? This is one of the best books I've read this year, and one of the best young adult dystopian/science fiction novels I've read, period. It's so very well done. The moment I can pre-order the sequel, I will. I intend to foist this one on as many people as possible, as well. It's quite difficult to review this book or even explain its premise without spoiling the well-paced surprises it offers. I'll simply say that the text is framed as an edited book, of which the main part is a wr [...]


    • Well, weird. That's the best word to describe this book. But hell am I glad I read it! It reminded me a lot of Genesis in some ways but with a much better story and a range of characters to go with it. It's like my ultimate bookgasm (did I just invent a word? Me thinks yes): Sci-fi + Dystopia + Philosophy = stay in all day until finished!And it delivered in a very interesting and unique way, I found myself actually liking the 'Note' sections, they were quite an amusing idea as to how an alien sp [...]


    • It's been really hard to write this review because every time I try to collect my thoughts all that comes to mind is: OMG THIS BOOK WAS FREAKEN AWESOME AND EVERYONE IN THE WORLD SHOULD READ IT!I could just leave it at that but I expect you all want a little more :)For me, Human .4 was like an ultimate 'what if' sci-fi adventure. (view spoiler)[ What if humans are only important and useful as massive electronic data processers? What if our brains function at a capacity, not set by biology or evol [...]


    • Everyone seems to love this bookexcept for me. Did I miss something?The town is holding a talent show, and four people (two teenagers and two older people) volunteer to be hypnotized. But during the act, suddenly the audience (and the entire town) start acting very strangely. The four struggle to find out if it's hypnosis gone wrong or something else.It's a decent idea, but I felt that it was poorly done. First of all, the story is supposedly being listened to/read/transcribed from audio tapes l [...]


    • This is a really clever book and a solid 5 star read for me.There’s not much I can say about it. I think you really need to read it for yourself. I’d recommend doing so without reading any reviews first and If you can read it in one sitting, even better.It’s well written, fast paced, with excellent character development. And very well told.It reminded me, just a little, of some of Stephen King’s short stories.


    • I think that's what we all want, in the end. To know that we left footprints when we passed by, however briefly. We want to be remembered. So remember us. Please. Remember us.Human.4 is a very addicting read. I couldn’t stop until I reached the last page. It’s the type of book you’ll want more and more off. There was no putting this book down. It was AWESOME. It was FREAKIN’ FANTASTIC!What pushed me to read this book? It was the fact that there were cassette tapes involved. Why? Well one [...]


    • I thought HUMAN.4 was dystopian lit when I began. I think I had it confused with I AM NUMBER FOUR. (I may have also been misled by the current dystopian fad.) I'll cop to not being the biggest fan of dystopias. What is HUMAN.4? I suspect you'll hear many different answers. I'd call it a classic SF/horror story, in the vein of The Twilight Zone. (At times I got a distinct "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street" vibe. YouTube video for those unfamiliar with the classic episode.) Mike A. Lancaster d [...]


    • Wow. This was such a good book. I devoured it, and read it all in one sitting. I couldn't stop. From the very first page, I was hooked. By the second chapter or so, there was no way I was putting it down soon. I didn't expect to read it all though. What did I love so much about it? I'm not really sure. It's probably one of the only sci-fi books I've read, so that for me was appealing because it's something new, something that isn't a paranormal romance. Don't get me wrong, I will always love and [...]


    • I thought that the book was a gripping and successful thriller. I actually read the book during my lunch break and finished it in two days.Semi spoiler alert:However, I do think there were some flaws. I felt that the characterization of the human 1.0 was inconsistent. They seemed like mindless zombies--they had limited emotions and purged their houses of "old" technology. With this information, it seems very implausible that they would care about collecting "antiques" as mentioned in the epilogu [...]


    • Terrific concept muddled by poor execution.Mike Lancaster has provided a quick, entertaining read hereunfortunately the overtly gimmicky premise is brought down by flat characters. If you can't relate or invest in the main character (Kyle Straker) or any of the supporting ones, then you lose what's at stake. And if you lose what's at stake, the drama and conflict never rise to where they should be. If Lancaster had infused some realistic and fully fleshed-out characters, spent some more time bui [...]


    • 6⋆/5⋆ (STARS).A MUST-READ.Quick backstory of how I regret not reading this sooner:I still remember the day I picked it up [0.4] from the bookstore's shelves. It was a day after my birthday, year 2014. When I read the blurb, I just knew it would be different, good different. I was about to buy it when I realized I didn't have enough money, although, I could have just asked a friend to lend me some. I came back for that book weeks later, just to find out they were out of stock. Now, after read [...]


    • Wow. This book kind of freaked me out. It was one of those where, after I finished it, I needed to sit and absorb what happened in the story. And then read something light and cheerful to rid myself of the lingering creepy feeling. Oh, it starts out unassuming enough. Kyle’s a regular guy with some regular friends in an average little town whose major form of entertainment is a talent show on the village green. Then he gets hypnotized, wakes up and everything’s different. Everyone’s differ [...]


    • This book was OK. A British teenager is hypnotized along with three other volunteers at the village fair. When they wake, the four of them find themselves in a strange new world where people are acting very odd and technology behaves in strange ways. Has the whole world gone mad? Are the four of them still hypnotized? Or is something even stranger going on? Basically, this book is The Matrix meets Total Recall, with a dash of Invasion of the Body Snatchers thrown in for spice.This is a very quic [...]


    • The book is very fast paced, and at only two hundred pages, it’s also a very fast read. I couldn’t even garner a guess as to how a character developed because there wasn’t much to critique. Kyle seems like a smart kid. Accepting his fate sounded like he was giving up and it wasn’t fair. Nor did any of it make sense. I thought it was flat and boring and there were no questions answered. I hate it when a book does that. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the bizarre concept, but wished there was more [...]


    • I'm not even sure where to begin in writing a review for this book, but I absolutely have to do so.This is probably one of the best books that I've ever read, and that's saying something pretty amazing. It was one of my first purchases when I got a Kindle (having already read it prior to that)and I've reread it a couple times. Each time, it continues to stand up as amazing.The premise for the book is both creative and really disturbing. There is something about this 'fiction' book that resonates [...]


    • This is Kyle Striker's story. After some terrible events he finds three tapes to record his story. Kyle Striker was attending a yearly talent show that his village always holds. His friend Danny was performing his hypnotism act and needed four volunteers. Kyle, Lily, and two adults volunteer. When they wake up from the hypnotism everyone in the village is frozen mid action. They have no idea what has happened but that they must not have been affected due to the fact that they were under hypnosis [...]


    • I picked up Human.4 not quite knowing what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. The story kept me engaged and before I knew it, I finished the book in a few hours (it's short). It was also an added treat to find out the book is set in England. You may as well know now, I am an anglophile. AnywayIt's rare that a book comes out for young adults that truly represents the sci-fi genre. No vampires, fairies, or amazonian girls skilled in weaponry, etc. Just science fiction. The oldest thing you'll [...]


    • This book messes with your mind the way that Feed by M.T. Anderson does. It challenges the definition of humanity and makes us question our current actions, and what we might want to do with our futures. I don't want to speak too much on the subject of the book, because I don't want to give it away. It is a quick read with computer-geek-style science fiction coursing through it. Both adults and teens would appreciate this one as there are references that only adults would get, yet the main prota [...]


    • Such a great book, such a cool plot!I really really really enjoy this one. I was expecting it, anyways, because the start is just awesome and incredible interesting, it catch my attention the second I opened it. I didn't read the concept cause I wanted it to be mysterious and tried to make my own hypothesis about what a "0.4" was. The writing style was just awesome and enchanting; I didn't felt bored at any moment. I feel like something's missing though. Like the potential that it has wasn't ful [...]


    • It's a standard day in Millgrove, a small village where about 1,000 people live. Today is the yearly talent show, a wonderful time where people get to let out their mostly terrible talents. Ventriloquism, singing, instruments, and the main act of the year, Hypnotism. Kyle, Lilly, Mrs. O'Donnell, and Mr. Peterson volunteer for part of the act, little knowing that it would change everything, forever. While they are hypnotized something happens, they don't know it yet but humanity in itself would c [...]


    • Okay, wow! This. book. is. incredible. I can admit I am not an avid reader. I try but I really struggle to find a book that grabs me before I get distracted. My mind races at a million kilometers per hour and I just don't have the self discipline to calm down to a book for a couple hours.I did NOT put this book down. I borrowed it at the library today after looking for the Maze Runner prequel. After failing I decided to find other books that caught my attention and this one just screamed at me. [...]


    • It's a brave new world. 'My name is Kyle Straker. And I don't exist anymore.' So begins the story of Kyle Straker, recorded on to old audio tapes. You might think these tapes are a hoax. But perhaps they contain the history of a past worldIf what the tapes say are true, it means that everything we think we know is a lie. And if everything we know is a lie does that mean that we are, too?So, firstly I'd love to tell you why this book is clever, but that would spoil it. But keep that in mind. Its [...]


    • Wanted to like it more. Wanted it to be "chilling" as its jacket flap advertises, but no such chills or thrills materialized.Premise: what if we, like computers, can be auto-updated? What if a small percentage of people missed out on crucial system reboots and became a lower form of life all at once, in the blink of an eye? What if you got left behind while really you were still there all along?That's what happens to Kyle and his crush and friend's girl Lilly when they and two adults from their [...]


    • I decided to read the book: Human.4 as I have NEVER read a science fiction novel before and thought I probably should as it would benefit my learning experience immensely. As I have mentioned, the category of the book is: a science fiction novel and this was interesting to read as it shows different perceptions and important ideas of life. My favourite quote in the book was: " In extraordinary times , the ordinary takes on a glow all of its own. " I love this quote because it is completely true [...]


    • This book is about Kyle Straker, who has told his story on three tapes. During a local talent show, he volunteers in a hypnotising act with three others. When they wake up they find everybody else frozen. Whilest trying to figure out what happened to them, everybody else 'wakes' up again, but everybody is acting weird including his parents. As one of the 0.4 he is now on the run with the three others, trying to figure out what happened.Now his story is written down, but if what Kyle is speaking [...]


    • This book was completely awesome. It is original in its ideas, was creepy and left you thinking.The story consists of transcripts of tapes recorded by Kyle describing events that he went through one summer. I loved this format and particularly loved that the end of tapes cut themselves short and you don;t always know what Kyle was about to stay. The story is supposed to have been published several years after they were taped and I loved that every so often an editors note would be added in offer [...]


    • Human.4 is an excellent book. When I laid my eyes on the book that caught my attention, I knew that this was going to be a different book. At first, I thought of that because of the odd looking cover but then I got in really deep, and it was worth it. This book starts of in a very different category than what the book ends in. A boy named Danny claims to be a hypnotist and it is believed after his 4 volunteers go up on stage as "dummies". After the wake up, something very strange happened. Every [...]


    • As soon as I started reading this book I literally couldn’t put it down. Honestly I judged this book almost completely by its cover and I’m soo glad I did! I’ve very recently found a new interest in Science Fiction books and this book contributed to it immensely and also fueled it. As soon as I started reading Human.4 a just kept reading and reading and I finished it in only 5 days which is very good for me because I’m a slow reader.The book kept taking unexpected turns and there was nev [...]


    • An absolutely, amazing novel, full of depth and wonder. Brilliant and beautiful is what this book is, I loved it. Creating this book must have taken hours thinking out every plot twist and making sure nothing was unexplained. Dystopia is a genre, that I may actually enjoy again, thanks to 0.4. Exactly the kind of book, I love. When I first started the book and read the first paragraph, I knew I was going to enjoy it.“Warning:This data storage unit, or "book," has been designed to reprogram the [...]


    • Holy crap this book blew my mind. I was pulled into this book from the very beginning. It was so weird and so cool at the same time. One of my all time favorite young adult sci-fi books. There was so much suspense throughout I read this in one sitting. Lancaster kept me guessing as to what had happened to everyone, and when you finally find out that (view spoiler)[ humans were getting a software upgrade, and that this had happened before(hide spoiler)] I thought it was awesome. I had no clue tha [...]
