Descrizione prodotto


As a young Air Force pilot, Richard Bard learned that he had only a few months to live. But he beat the odds. He earned a management degree from the University of Notre Dame and after leaving the Air Force he ran three successful companies involving advanced security products used by US embassies and government facilities worldwide. He was an active member of the California Crime Prevention Officer’s Association and has been published with cover stories in Security magazine and ASIS Security Management magazine. Cancer killed Richard Bard’s career as a USAF pilot. But it didn’t kill him. Thirty-six years later he’s still going strong. Now he writes about second chances in the BRAINRUSH thriller series. When asked what he hopes to achieve as a writer, he said, “The dream for me is to be walking through an airport and notice someone with her head buried in the book. Many readers have said they found it impossible to put down. For me, that's the ultimate compliment.” Bard currently resides with his wonderful wife in Redondo Beach, California, where he remains in excellent health. Book Two of the series is scheduled for release in December, 2011

1.0 su 5 stelle What was the author thinking? 22 giugno 2014
Di Christopher Jantzen - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I added this book to my kindle because it sounded like it was going to be a fun read. In its defense, the majority of the book delivers what it promises. The book is fun and a fast read but it also suffers from a tremendously stupid ending. The kind of ending that makes you scratch your head and ask out loud "what was the author thinking?" If you can get past or just skip the ending all together then this book might be for you. As for me, I wish I had known that before I started because I would never have started reading because if the book doesn't have an ending or an ending that works, it's not worth reading.

Just ok for me.

I've read the other reviews just GUSHING praise for this book/author and all I can think is y'all need to get out more. There is no way this is in league with truly great authors (Steveson, Card, Lawhead or even contemporary good writers like Grisham).

The character devolpment was weak... of course all his friends would be spec ops. Of course the dizzy blonde waitress would be a Kung fu master. Of course he would be invincible. Of course the bad guy is a maniacal Muslim terrorist. I mean it was just weak characters, little devolpment and wholly predictable.

Story line was somewhat compelling but disjointed. I see how we got from point A to F but there were some serious leaps made that required the reader to suspend disbelief.

I'd like to see where the story heads but not for 3.99 a pop. This is standard Kindle Unlimited fare IMHO.

5.0 su 5 stelle I really enjoyed this book - so much that I've purchased the rest of the series. 12 febbraio 2017

You know, I read some of the reviews that it was too unbelievable, too whatever - but it's fiction. I truly enjoyed the heck out of it! Action, adventure, some wild situations, the ending with the cave, interesting, and for me, a possibility that it could be, or could happen. We never know what this world holds, but I really enjoyed this book - it entertained me for the time I read it and found myself holding my breath during the intense moments, of which there were many! I enjoyed it so much that I've bought the rest of the series on my kindle - ah well! So I will be staying up late, reading the rest of this series! Loved it! Thanks for the great book! I am always impressed with the ideas some of you folks come up with!

3.0 su 5 stelle Pros and cons of higher mental capabilities 1 febbraio 2017
Di Irwin Forman - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
How much do you want to know about another person's thoughts and feelings? Is that a gift or a dilemma? This story is bizarre, mysterious and often unpredictable. Male bonding is featured. Yet there are times with female interactions that are romantic and humorous. Cancer is in the background of the plot. Scenes of Venice and it's carnival are beautifully described. Action is often detailed on martial arts. Central theme is telepathy and it's effects on the possessor and their interpersonal contacts. Last parts of the book were protracted and redundant. It was detailed with military weapons and multiple characters. I struggled to finish it. Maybe a movie of the various locales would have been better.

5.0 su 5 stelle Mind Blowing Multi-Dimensional Thriller 17 febbraio 2017
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A truly amazing book. It ought to be rightfully classified as sci-fi or a techno-thriller, but the author has written it in a way to make it completely accessible to a broader audience of thriller readers by making it read like something that’s far more in their wheelhouse. I didn’t read this book; I devoured it. At the cost of sleep. But sometimes feeding the soul takes precedence.

I loved the theme of people who have amazing powers and gifts following a traumatic incident serving as the scientific basis for unleashing that potential in the entire human race. But the research is being approached from another angle as well. There are those who would attempt to upgrade human performance just as readily with a mind chip. Within the context of this story those would be the bad guys. One wonders as we step into the near future which scientific approach will win out or if it will possibly be a blended approach. But to keep things from getting academic is this wonderful story with good guys and bad guys going at one another with not just their fates at risk, but the fate of the future and of the world.

I loved how the author gets the reader to think about things that never make it into the news but that will describe the years and decades ahead much more vividly than anything which does. These are debates we should be having with ourselves and with one another in the public forum. But until we do, there are artists and keep thinkers like this author who has steeped in the issues, the tech, and the scientific literature enough to give us a leg up. What future will we inherit, and will it be worth the price?

You’ll have to read on to find out.

I have a new author to add to my favorites list and this one makes the top 5 of my Q1 2017 reads. I’m eagerly looking forward to the rest of the series.
