Superhighway is a young adult sci-fi thriller written by Alex Fayman. It is the first book in the Superhighway Trilogy series. It is a story of an eighteen-year-old boy, Alex Fine who discovers that he can travel through the optical passageways. His ability gives him an extraordinary power to manipulate the online data and to travel to any corner of the world. He has twice as much power as an expert hacker in this world. This discovery changes his entire life. Before his discovery, he doesn’t have a dollar to his name while a month later; he has been planning to buy an entire Island.



Alex becomes a modern-day Robin Hood by using his power to help others. He uses his newfound ability to steal from Dutch and Russian gangsters. He transfers this money into his own account. He opens trust funds which he uses to help others. Despite his good intentions, he makes many mistakes which leads to severe consequences. Through the end of the book, he discovers the shocking truth about his parents which change the course of his life.



The plot of the story is different and interesting. It gives a nice message that if we have the power to help others, then we should do it without having second thoughts. The chapters are short and easy to read. The book ends with an interesting cliffhanger which piques our interest to know the full story.



At the beginning of the book, the author describes Alex as a smart and brilliant young guy, yet I find him irresponsible and immature. He is the hero of the book, but he sometimes acts like a villain. Sometimes, his actions have a lot of negative effect on the surrounding people. Due to its unique concept, I have been expecting a more exciting and thrilling story, but it is boring in more than one part of the book. The execution of the story is not proper. I think the journey of Alex around optical passageways can be more adventurous and thrilling.



I rate this book 2 out of 4. It can use a professional editor as its editing is poor. I give it 2 stars because of its unique plot and unique storyline. I recommend this book to all the readers who like to read about a new unique plot in the sci-fi genre. There are drug and alcohol scenes, so it is definitely not for kids.

I read and reviewed this one too and felt pretty much the same as you did. Alex was such a self-absorbed jerk! And it's hard to really appreciate a story with an unsympathetic "hero." Nice review.
