The Shockwave Rider by John Brunner

One man has made it his mission to liberate the mental prisoners. to restore their freedom in a world run mad.
Nickie Halflinger, the only person to escape from Tarnover- where they raise hyper-intelligent children to maintain the political dominance of the USA in the 21st century – is on the run, dodging from loophole to crevice to crack in the computerised data-net that binds the continent like chains. After years of flight and constant changes of identity, at the strange small town called Precipice he discovers he is not alone in his quest. But can his new allies save him when he falls again into the sinister grasp of Tarnover...?
From Goodreads.

I was definitely reading outside my comfort zone with this book. I have to admit that more than once in this book there were whole paragraphs that even after having read them several times, I still didn't have a clue what I just read. I found that it was a slow start and I just didn't get hooked in the book. I enjoyed the last part of the book most and got quite caught up in the story. The further I got in the book the more I understood of the beginning of the book as well.
