This was a book that was so captivating right from the start, but I had no idea where it was going for a long time! The book sucked me in, the narrator sucked me in, and I wanted to find out what the heck was going on! This book was way too interesting and puzzling to put down. When I finally got to the point where things were coming together, and we as the reader finally find out what is going on … things just fell into place like tumblers.
The narration by Paul Michael Garcia was fantastic.
Anyone who enjoys a good suspense, mystery, thriller, science fiction, fantasy story would likely enjoy the book. I know I did.
I don’t want to tell too much about this book because it really would take away from it if you knew ahead of time. I thought the way I read it was best. I just read what was on the Audible website about it when it was on the one of the Daily Deals.
Daniel Suarez out-did himself with Influx! What an amazing story. It has so many elements of science fiction and science fact, as well as science probable! The story is very intricate and the characters are so well developed.
I don’t want to give away too much but suffice it to say that people (including our hero, Jon Grady) who have invented or discovered disruptive scientific technologies are disappearing and or being killed by what appears to be a group of religious nut cases who are apparently killing people brilliant people who are on the cusp of a major breakthrough in technology around the world. There is also a secret governmental organization created in the 50s/60s that has something to do with all of this as well.
I totally enjoyed this book! It may be a long book, but it was so well written I hardly noticed. It was very hard to put down!
Thanks so much Daniel Suarez! I hope you have your hands in the making of the movie so they do it well. I can’t wait to see it!
I listened to the audiobook version of this book from Audible and it is well worth getting!
Jeff Gurner did an amazing job on the narration of all of Daniel Suarez' books so far. I can't wait to listen to the rest! Since I have already read the dead tree version of Daemon, Freedom(TM) is next for me!
What do three college age daughters of a copper magnate and a handsome young man have in common? Could it have something to do with another handsome young man who doesn’t give up! And who is whom?
This is an intricately woven thriller! And no stone is left unturned.
I have to say, I read this book every free minute I could find, and then some!
I will be looking at other books by Ira Levin. He has become one of my favorite storytellers.
This was one of several of exceptional books by Ira Levin. Movie lovers will know his works – including this one A Kiss Before Dying as well as, Rosemary’s Baby, The Stepford Wives, etc. He is also very well known for his award winning play, Deathtrap. Levin’s best-known play is Deathtrap, which holds the record as the longest-running comedy-thriller on Broadway and brought Levin his second Edgar Award. In 1982, it was made into a film starring Christopher Reeve and Michael Caine.
