Publisher's Summary

Gabriel Reid has led a life of good luck. From a loving family, well educated, and now quite wealthy, he holds an important office in a prominent Atlanta construction company. But good fortune doesn't always last. Isaiah Battle arrives from the slums of Chicago, where he grew up in poverty, surviving by his wits and a hidden inner power. Isaiah is Gabriel's half-brother, and now he wants to claim the life he believes is rightfully his. The stage is set for an epic battle between brothers: a battle that will leave only one man standing.

Gold Pen winner Brandon Massey wrote the frightening novel Dark Corner and edited the collection of horror and suspense by black authors Dark Dreams. With The Other Brother, he presents a thriller of terrifying proportions.

    "I liked it"

    I can't understand why he came at Gabriel instead of coming at his father I mean he's father was the one who messed with his mama. Smh jealousy is a mother I tell you. But this was a good book I listen to it on audible but I do prefer reading a book because I can understand it better. Dude who is the narrator made it funny though. Lol but the ending part where he made dude leave was dumb like what man gone let another man make them leave while with there women smh what a loser. But what was funny was when he told the girl that he rather do push-ups then mess with her again that's so wrong . I can tell I don't like Isaiah but he's hilarious. But what weird is Gabriel and Isaiah having dreams and visions etc about each other . Only thing I don't understand is to me it feels like this story is missing something. It was good though. And the ending where they found out they were twins were a shocker to me. And even though Isaiah made me sick it sucked that he died. Then Gabe had twins. Lol like wow but I don't know why I thought Isaiah was gone pop up somewhere lol. But I understand why Isiah felt that way because he assume his father didn't want him I think it'll been better if they told them they were twins to begin with.

    "I also thought it was predictable..."

    It's an ok book but it never answered the question about Isaiah's life and death experience, it didn't change him only made him worse. I also don't condone this book essentially saying you can do bad things, not repent and still end up in heaven? I grudgingly recommend this audiobook.

    "Awesome"

    This book was extremely good!!!!!!! I could barely work while trying to listen to this book. I would have loved for it to last a little longer, but it's a must read.

    Really bad sound

    Here are more words to fill this ridiculous word requirement.

    "Suspenseful"

    This audio book is worth the purchase. The premise of the book is basic, but there are a few surprises which will keep the listener on edge. I found it enjoyable, and the author was a good writer. The narrator did a good job flowing between characters.

    "predictable"

    I knew the ending after listening to about a third of the book. I thought the characters were weak, as was the plot. But I kept listening because I just knew there had to be more, but there wasn't.

    "Great listen"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I wanted to know what was going to happen next. It was a shocker.

    "Rodata"

    This book was a little slow in the very beginning, but it picked up some towards the end. The lack of different characters reading made it difficult to keep listening to sometimes. The fact that the reader tries to change his voice for each character, became a little boring. Maybe reading this book for your self would have been better than having it read in audible. But overall it was a good book.
