Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victor Tatarskii | 1/30/2014

    " Here is your ideal fast food techno thriller: easy and enjoyable to read, shallow, with 2d characters and the most stupid villain on mind-enhancing drugs you'll ever see. Also: fantasy molecular biology. But still I'll give it 3 stars, and maybe even would read the sequel, when I feel like I need morning subway reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mitzi | 1/29/2014

    " Luckily I had never seen this cheesy cover since I read this as an e-book. Definitely entertaining and I liked the concept, the writing and 2-D characters not so much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi Harvey | 1/24/2014

    " This book was awesome! Loved it from the minute I opened it. It makes you think about all the untapped capabilities of the human mind. Can't wait to read the sequel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Agam Dua | 1/13/2014

    " I bought it for a dollar, would've paid three. Surprisingly pacy, enough twists to give you great value for money if all you're looking for is a quick side read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Hardy | 1/5/2014

    " Found it fascinating and nearly dropped out of finishing it when the corny villain monologue happened. Seriously?! That is reserved for cartoons all dressed in black with large bottled brains on their skulls. I'm glad I finished it though! The ending was not expected, if a little cheesy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mae Padua-janusas | 1/4/2014

    " It's awesome!! Had me on the edge the entire time. Action packed and moving. I don't remember a slow point at all. I'd recommend this book to everyone. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ryanhops | 12/30/2013

    " Idiotic villains and poorly written...hey at least it was a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stafford | 11/27/2013

    " A more action-packed version of the movie Limitless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chathura | 9/28/2013

    " A very well written gripping thriller/sci-fi. The plot is well thought out and keeps a fast pace keeping you from putting the book down. While I do have some gripes about the book, those are minor. And considering this book cost only $0.99, it's a real bargain. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Donaghe | 4/30/2013

    " This was an excellent book. I downloaded it on my Kindle for only 79 cents! It was well worth the price. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ross | 3/26/2013

    " The writing was sort of cheesy, but I enjoyed the premise and the plotting of the novel. There was an awful lot of dialog-as-exposition but I wasn't expecting a masterpiece, just something to keep me entertained while I was bedridden, and this did the trick. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 3/24/2013

    " This was ok and I was actually enjoying it till about the 90% mark when all the villians and good guys came out with their let-me-explain-my-wonderful-taking-over(or-saving)-the-world speeches when the entire thing made me roll my eyes and wonder how the book suddenly became so clumsy... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yohani | 2/13/2013

    " Too many cliches. I didn't get to the thrilling bit. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rob Bernard | 1/30/2013

    " Ugh, I couldn't even get through the 2nd chapter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rubina | 1/12/2013

    " A fun, entertaining thriller. Not necessarily an amazing book, but one of the more addictive ones I've gotten from the Kindle Lending Library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ceci | 9/24/2012

    " A solid 3.5 - definitely a fast paced, enjoyable read filled with action, intrigue, abuse of power, government conspiracy, and far fetched science experiments. It's worth the $.99 cents on Amazon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin Gibbons | 5/21/2012

    " Read it for the concepts not the writing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Felix | 5/7/2012

    " Easily digestable prose and a story like in a Hollywood action movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 4/6/2012

    " Fast paced, like a Dan Brown book, and interesting science fiction. "
