Would you consider the audio edition of BRAINRUSH, a Thriller to be better than the print version?

I would say that the Audiobook is better than the print version because the narrator, R.C. Bray, does an incredible job of bringing the characters to life. It's hard to believe all of the accents came from one person.

What other book might you compare BRAINRUSH, a Thriller to and why?

It's very hard to compare BRAINRUSH to other Thrillers because it has so many elements to it. So many Thrillers these days seem to be very generic, almost like the author is following a formula. Richard Bard does a great job of breaking the mold and creating a truly original Thriller.

Have you listened to any of R.C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not heard any other audiobooks narrated by R.C. Bray.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

BRAINRUSH definitely has both funny and sad aspects. Since one of the main themes of the book is terrorism, it is sure to elicit emotion from all who listen.

Any additional comments?

BRAINRUSH is one of the best and most original Thrillers I have read/listened to in a long time. I highly recommend it!
