Blurb: Everyone thinks I’m a genius.
Everyone is wrong.
Sure, I finished Harvard at eighteen and now make crazy money at a hedge fund. But that’s not because I’m unusually smart or hard-working.
It’s because I cheat.
You see, I have a unique ability. I can go outside time into my own personal version of reality—the place I call “the Quiet”—where I can explore my surroundings while the rest of the world stands still.
I thought I was the only one who could do this—until I met her.
My name is Darren, and this is how I became entangled with all the Russians and learned that I’m a Reader.
Review: A different take on mind reading, very different from the other book about mind reading I read, The Mind Readers, and not just because that one is a youth book and this one isn’t.
It isn’t really mind reading in the way that you come across it in other books, at least not in the ones I’ve read. He doesn’t actually read their minds so much as see into their memories, kind of becoming a part of them as he’s in their mind.
He’s a special case in that he can go as far as he wants into someone’s memories and this was a new twist on the genre for me.
The reason for the four stars instead of five is because when he’s getting everything explained to him, there’s a whole lot of science talk and that just goes right over my head. Honestly, I thought about putting the book down because I thought it was just going to be explanations and science the entire time, I’m glad that I stayed with it.
I’m taking away the fifth star because of the science jargon but, that’s just for me. If you have the mind for science, you’ll love all of it. If I was into science and physics and all of that, it most definitely would have been five stars.
This is action-packed and you’ll be left wanting more at the end. The cliff-hanger left this reader with her mouth hanging open and hungry for more. I would suggest this for anyone and everyone.
Thank you for reading my review.
