Seems to be full of sci-fi cliches
Doesn't look original

From its quintessentially melodramatic voiceover to its ‘90s-esque eerie blue graphics, everything about the trailer for James Regan’s Frameworks: The Price of Delusion screams sci-fi cliché. The plot, though, sounds like it could make for an enjoyable enough read: a nanotechnologist/virtual reality engineer goes to work for the government and discovers an elaborate scheme to control the minds of the world’s populace. Original? Not really—the trailer makes it quite clear that the book relies heavily on tech-gone-bad genre tropes. But a fun escapist novel? Could be.
