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.

It was just okay.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes. I love Kevin Free and Brandon Massey. This book was good. It just started a little slow. Once you get into the story, it becomes really interesting.

Was The Other Brother worth the listening time?

It was worth the time.

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.
