Publisher's Summary

Everyone thinks I'm a genius. Everyone is wrong. Sure, I finished Harvard at 18 and now make crazy money at a hedge fund. But that's not because I'm unusually smart or hard-working. It's because I cheat.

You see, I have a unique ability. I can go outside time into my own personal version of reality - the place I call - "the Quiet" - where I can explore my surroundings while the rest of the world stands still.

I thought I was the only one who could do this - until I met her. My name is Darren, and this is how I learned that I'm a Mind Reader.

The Thought Readers: Mind Dimensions, book 1

"I find this audio book very engaging and it is easy to just listen in on the story and let the time fly past. The story is about a young man who have learned to stop time and use this ability to gain a great place in stock trade. As he learns of others with this gift, he takes it upon himself to find them and learn more about what it means to be able to do what he can do. Before he knows it he is in the middle of a conflict of "Readers" and Pushers" and with a light crush on the lovely mysterious Mira.

The book is very well written and then narrated by Roberto Scarlato and it is very easy to see the different characters he depict with his voice before your inner eye so to speak. I gladly recommend listening to this artwork."

Very Imaginative

I enjoyed the story and felt the concept of “the quiet” was quite inventive. I found myself imagining how I myself might use such an ability. I especially liked the intrigue of “Mira,” and look forward to the second book.

I do feel that while I believe the narrator did a fairly good job, sometimes his speech fell somewhat flat. He did a good job when changing characters with different voices, however, I think he struggled to bring the life to the story in a way that it deserves.

Overall, it was an enjoyable book with a wonderful premise that ended too soon.

Great concept, well executed, decent narration.

Bought this audiobook because I loved the concept described in the blurb. So glad I did! I really enjoyed how the main character experimented and tried things out with his abilities. This is not a urban romance novel either just in case the blurb might make you think that.

My only complaint with the book is that it was WAY too short! I was just settling in and it was done! I do prefer 12 - 40 hour listens though, so for me this one was a bit outside my norm.

The narration was quite decent with easily distinguishable character voices, howver like most male actors, females are hard to portray well.

Very keen to see Book #2!

A Must Read!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, anyone who loves syfy/thriller/action and the unknown!!! The book keeps you looking for more and wanting to keep listening/reading flipping through the pages!

What did you like best about this story?

The silence and how he keeps going back and forth between the two dimensions.

Which character – as performed by Roberto Scarlato – was your favorite?

Darren for obvious reasons... main character of the first book and wanting to know more about him!

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

In a single touch.....

Any additional comments?

I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this book (audible) as I like to flip pages by hand. But OH MY GOODNESS this book was awesome, so glad I was able to listen to it. At first I was a bit confused at what was going on but in Chapter 2, I was deep into it and couldn't stop!!! Audible took about 6 hours to listen to, so I was able to finish today (after receiving this for free for my unbiased opinion) I SOOOO want book two! Who are you!?? What are you? Jumper, Reader, Pusher.... This is a definite must read for any syfy action thriller lover :) Pick it up!!!!!!

Fast paced and awesome

I really like the entire storyline so far and concept. It's such an intriguing idea, the "quiet" and some of the ways used to describe it being felt by us normal people is genius making the story line feel plausible. I found there is just the right amount of description used and was face paced more often than not. I find that sometimes the F-word is used more than maybe it needs to be, but often adds to story as to showing the type of character.

I would probably rate this book between pg-13 to a mature read just due to the swearing and a few intense scenes.

I cannot wait to listen to the next one!!!

I received a copy of this book via audible in exchange for an honest opinion. I was in no way compensated, nor told what to say or how to rate.

Definitly a good read

Thought Readers: Mind Dimension is another good read written by Dima Zales and Anna Zaires. Following the story of Darren, for the rest of the world a wunderkind but he has a big secret. Darren can stop time and explore the world around him, which gives him an upper hand. It was a pleasure enjoying this book and seeing how Darren uses his ability. I saw myself in him, in actions that I would also if I had such ability. Very well written book, material that keeps you reading on and diving deep into the world of Mind Dimension.

Great story Great storyteller

This book follows a man, Darren, who throughout his whole life thought he was the only one who was able to stop time and see what was going on around him and able to walk around while everyone else was stopped, stuck in time. Until one day he sees someone else moving around with him while he has stopped time.
If you have read "The Mind Readers: Stopping Time" then you know something about the story. The person he was moving around time with was Mira. Darren tracks down Mira and her brother Eugene in an attempt to find out more about what was happening to him. He learns that he is what they call "a reader". The other connection between them is that both of them had both parents murdered.
This story is full of mystery and intrigue. Stopping time, reading minds, splitting into other dimensions. There is a good storyline and the narrator is very good. He told the story very naturally and I liked his voice, perfect for telling the story. I am getting more and more interested in listening to the books of Dima Zales. He writes so you need to find out what happens next

Dreadful narration

It's not a great book but perhaps reading it yourself it might be better because the narration is just awful, I don't know how people get these jobs!

An Intriguing Concept

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes as it has an unusual plot device.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Thought Readers?

Too many to choose from.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration matched the pace of the story though at times the tone would jump where the audio was spliced together.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes however the length of the story was longer than my work day.

Any additional comments?

The narration takes a bit of getting used to but once you have become accustomed to the narrators voice the story is fast paced with twist and turns and decent plot devices. I thoroughly recommend it.

not a bad read

hate to say it but the reader of this novel let it down, he tended to pause to often and in the wrong places.
