Publisher's Summary

Nick Hall returns in a riveting standalone thriller, set in a stunning future that is rapidly approaching. From the New York Times best-selling author whose books have been downloaded over a million times.

Nick Hall has revolutionary electronics implanted in his brain that allow him to read minds - including thoughts, memories, and even intent. He can know the passwords, future strategies, and innermost secrets of anyone he chooses, making him the most formidable man alive. But his status as the only mind reader in the world is about to change...

Soon, Hall is fighting for his life as he races to stop an unimaginably despicable terror plot. But his problems are only beginning. Because when a member of his inner circle betrays him, and the secret to mind reading leaks out, he is forced to wage war against a merciless mind reader of nearly unequaled brilliance. One who will stop at nothing to kill Hall, his colleagues, and the woman he loves. And one who is intent on ushering in a dramatic transformation of the human species - even at the cost of billions of lives.

Based on actual research on computer-assisted mind reading, Mind War is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.

    "Hokey narrator style"

    This story was definitely thought-provoking and interesting, but the narrator's hokey delivery style ruined it for me. Won't listen to another with that narrator.

    "Thought-provoking reading"

    I have truly enjoyed each of the Nick Hall books. They stretch my imagination and make me really think. I like the recap at the end of what is real and what is still just imagination. Nick is a likable, if unlikely hero. Victor is a nemesis worthy of respect, despite his flawed outlook. I love that the ending leaves just enough loose ends to leave me eager for a next installment in the series, without feeling as though I was left hanging. Overall, this is an entertaining series.

    Story
    "Odd Moments, Narration"

    This is a step down from other DER novels. The story/plot is decent, with some interesting and unexpected story lines, but this had one of the highest ERPM (Eye-Rolls Per Minute) scores in a while.

    One main problem - every mention of Megan and Nick as a couple is cloying and sickly sweet. Any time their personal relationship is mentioned, it is just the worst cliched crap. And, I think the narrator makes that much worse, by overemphasizing this dialogue. I was close to giving up on the book quite a few times because of this.

    In many other parts, the narrator fails as well. The voices of the "nerdy" characters are difficult to listen to, and too many of the voices stand out for the wrong reasons. The narrator sounds unprofessional and unsophisticated in his performance here. His effort conflicts with the otherwise cutting edge technology that is a big part of the story.

    It might have been different as a read, but hard to say.

    "Reader was horrible"

    The reader was about as exciting as milk toast. Send this guy to go read children's books. Story line was interesting but did not tie loose ends up.

    "Could Be So Good"

    I finally figured out why I keep reading/listening to this author even though I'm definitely not a fan. The main reason is that the concepts and general storylines are really pretty good and thought provoking. I think that if he just outlined a book and had someone else write it, it could be a 5 star book. However, he writing style is just horrendous. You can't finish a page without hearing every single person's COMPLETE thought on the current problem or topic. And I mean every last thought or feeling. It is so annoying and I want to roll my eyes and rip out my hair for how over the top it is and is the downside to his books. For instance, Victor, the main evil villain, tells his every thought, plan, and opinion to multiple people including his enemies multiple times. I get he can gain respect for them, but the complete explanation and feeling about each interaction put into words is annoying and just plain doesn't make sense. And also how all of the main people get along sooo perfectly also is a little over the top. He bad thing is that it isn't just the Nick Hall series, all of his works are like this and unfortunately for me makes the books hard to read and why I don't end up recommending them. Also, the audible voice actor on these books is not very good either. Varies his voice and extends syllables way too much to try and impart tone and feeling into the words. Again way too over the top.

    Story, concepts, research= 5/5
    Writing quality and character development/creation =1.5/5

    "Nicely Done, better than book 2"

    As is often the case, it is hard to beat the first in a series. This third installment, while not better than the original, does step it up from book two. I would imagine this series is increasingly difficult to flesh out with the escalation of the base premise. Not to give too much away but more mind reading makes for much more room for nasty things for our heros squad and more complicated design for our friendly neighborhood author. Book three stands on it's own better than book two. So if you don't know Nick Hall, you can start here. That said, start at book one Minds Eye and read all three in order. It's just better that way.
