Brilliance (2013)
3.84 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Interesting read - started off a little slow but picked up nicely - I enjoyed the futuristic but not unrealistic setting of this book where some people are gifted with genius abilities and what happens to them as a result. The story was intriguing, the characters were well writte...
A Better World (2014)

review 1: I would have loved the book. Except for the unrealistic stupidity (call me an optimist if you like) of the characters and the one-track minded evil of the bad guys. Another thing that bothers me is the US-centeredness. For something that is a worldwide phenomenon, we hear absolut...
The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes (2011)
3.46 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: After reading Brilliance, I couldn't wait to find another of his books, and this one largely didn't disappoint. Although, the two deaths is not that clear to me... I did think it lost the plot a little a few times, and became a little unbelievable. I mean what couple goes for...
The Amateurs (2009)

Amateurs, The (2009)

review 1: This was a really good book that went in directions I didn't expect. A story of four fairly ordinary people who get in over their heads when life nudges them to commit a crime. It kept building up; one guy was worse than the next, and in the end, they find that they're into som...
Die Abnormen (2014)
3.85 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: The "us vs. them" trope is nothing new, but this IS a well-written action novel with interesting characters, plot twists, and a whiff of governmental intrigue.The parallels to X-Men (or Heroes, etc.) are obvious, but if you enjoy those stories, Brilliance is the first book in wha...
