Great Sci fi

for me, this book was the perfect mix of Science and storytelling. The action was fun, the characters were likeable, and there was plenty of science to keep it interesting. It was also told in a realistically scientific fashion, allowing me to suspend my disbelief, and thoroughly enjoyed the story.

Good story, but tiresome in parts

I enjoy Brown's stories, but he is so wordy in parts that it takes me out of the story. This was an enjoyable story and the presentation was excellent, but for the length of the book, I expected more action to take place. There was a part about halfway through where I decided not to buy his next book because the story was dragging so much. But I must have enjoyed the rest because I know now that I will likely buy whatever his next one is for. I may go back and reread his two early books (before the religious thing took over all his stories). For me, they offer a better balance of action and exposition. But I'll keep reading the new ones as well, hoping they get closer to his early novels.

Great idea, but hard to follow

I really enjoyed the story idea, but found it hard to follow at times. It may have just been that I've been unusually distracted while listening recently, but I frequently found myself re-listening to a chapter and still feeling lost.

Excellent!

I read this book as a teenager many years ago. Listening to it again now, it is just as compelling and powerful.

Great book!

I think this is my favorite D. E. R. book yet, and I've read almost all of them available on Audible. The science is fascinating and the characters are very relatable. I actually gasped at one point and had to listen to that part again to make sure I heard correctly. Great book!

I enjoyed this book and got to know the characters well enough to be invested in their fortune. But I did find parts to be a bit slow or off topic and I expected the various characters to be drawn together more at the end ... But still an enjoyable read with a good mix of pseudo-tech, love, and murder.

Where does BrainWeb rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 25 (but I've listened to a lot of audiobooks)

What was one of the most memorable moments of BrainWeb?

I particularly enjoyed the raid on the home of one of the characters and how it ended so differently than I expected.

What does Adam Verner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Voice characterization was good.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Brain web...will it destroy or save humanity?

Excellent, beginning to end.

Loved this book. Plenty of action and technological gizmos. Very entertaining. I have already purchased the second book in the series.
