L'autore

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

HASH(0x9a4431f8) su 5 stelle Nice start for new author 31 agosto 2011
Di Robert H. McEwin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
First, I am not an author, but I read a lot. With that introduction, here is my review of Brainrush.

Brainrush was definitely an action packed read. Maybe a little too action packed. I mean I like a good "alien leaves a monolith to monitor humanity" story. I like a good "the brain has more capability than we know" story. I even like a good hi-tech military thriller. I especially like a "let's kick the terrorists butt" story. But when you mix all these elements together it gets a little muddled. It's like the author had lots of good ideas and tried to get them all into his first story. The characters were interesting. The plot was well structured. The writing got better as the book progressed. Even some nits I had early in the book were adequately and plausibly explained later in the book. So, all in all, not a bad first effort. I look forward to more from Richard.

No hard feeling here Richard... you DID ask my opinion :)

HASH(0x9a443450) su 5 stelle It Moves Like a Hurricane 29 agosto 2011
Di John C. Thomas - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is a fast paced, page turning, totally engrossing thriller. I started reading it on Saturday morning just as Hurricane Irene was approaching Richmond and the winds were picking up. I kept reading as the lights flickered. I kept reading even when the power went out and the sun went down. The sweep of the novel is amazing from one continent to another; from beautiful cities to rough hewn mountains. It has a bit of everything: terrorism, romance, science, and a really big surprise. This is my first reveiw ever and I have read thousands of books. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

My eyes couldn't move fast enough as I raced to keep up with the pace of this book. I like international thrillers and this one kept up with the best. The premise, the plot lines, the action, the intrigue, the nerves, etc. all raced with unanticipated twists and turns. The author writes with the intensity and knowledge of a special forces veteran. Yet somehow, all of this adrenaline is nestled within a bond of love for both a lover and a child. PS. I will think twice about ever having another MRI---but you'll have to read the book to find out why.

HASH(0x9a443708) su 5 stelle Simply Outstanding 4 dicembre 2011
Di Gordon Ryan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I preface my remarks with the admission that I am a thriller (and other genre) author. Therefore I may have viewed Brainrush from a different perspective. That said, I was immediately taken with this novel. It started in an unusual manner. There was a bit of a humorous tilt to the story at first, seemingly too light-hearted for what eventually developed into a full blown thriller. Nonetheless, the writing was superb and the author carried the reader along in the early chapters.

As another reviewer has said, by halfway through, we encountered sci fi, thriller, terrorists, military operations, romance, YA interest, and somehow, the blend of each of these genre fit right into the story without jarring the reader out of his or her train of thought.

It would be difficult, if not impossible, to detail the many ways in which the author pulled us along, tugging the chain of interest, without leaving a spoiler. I do not intend to do that. However, my advice is to read this book and discover for yourself that we have a new creative master on the scene: Richard Bard. He joins a select group that fills the megabites on my Kindle. Truly an author's author. Welcome, Richard.

HASH(0x9a443768) su 5 stelle Starting off great, then... errrr not so good. Sorry Richard 31 ottobre 2011
Di Juliette Moody - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Well for .99 cents this was too good of deal to pass up, plus getting Book 2 for free later on. Where to start. As an avid reader, 2 books a week, I really don't like newbies, but thought hey, give it a go. The first 30 pages were okay, not the best writer in town, but then it really took off, I mean, I really really liked it. I thought great, I found a good author. Then it happened. Way too much on the guns and description, (not into guns and I don't really think it's a guy thing also), just too over the top and a waste of paper. Then the ending. Really Richard, really??????? I mean, I love Science fiction, and this was not called for, it just doesn't make any sense and it's pointless. That really should've been another book altogether. You had a great terriorist plot overthrowing the US and then aliens... So needless to say, I was very disappointed. Oh and too predictable as well, I knew who the "spy" was way back in Venice.

I then read the next two paragraphs for Book Two on the kindle, back to being normal again. I hope the book stays that way, as book one rocked then did a semi spiral, but overall a good 50/100 for the first half of the book, then the rest was rubbish. I'm being honest, and I really didn't want to be, but hey you asked for my opinion.
