From Marcus Sakey, "a modern master of suspense" (Chicago Sun-Times) and "one of our best storytellers" (Michael Connelly), comes an adventure that’s at once breakneck thriller and shrewd social commentary; a gripping tale of a world fundamentally different and yet horrifyingly similar to our own, where being born gifted can be a terrible curse.

Yes, This is book one of an amazing series. Can't wait till the third one comes out.
Almost. I have a family, enough said.
Great book and great series. My wife loves it was well.
Not really. A lot of the narrative drive and tension comes from not knowing what's about to happen. I think if I listened to it again I would nitpick the book to death, because it did have some unresolved plot issues.
It was a good end to the main story arc, but it left a lot to be desired. We got the flash-forward to see what the actual repercussions of Nick's actions were, which I would have really liked.
Inflection! Most of the book takes place in Nick's head and if you were reading it on the page it might seem dull and flat. But with narration you can hear all the emotions that are actually running Nick and all his decisions.
Wasn't familiarize with this author nor the storyline, but was what a shock to experience good writing in a tight plot with believable characters.
I like books that have interesting characters and easy to follow plots. For example, Cormoran Strike, is a great character for me.
I liked the idea of the special kids but reminded me of X-men, to many loose ends and plot holes
I'm not tier one - or I might understand how I went from looking at New York Times bestsellers to buying this really bad book (based on the first ten chapters).
