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

2.0 su 5 stelle 5 parts Afghan Battle; 3 parts Psychic Phenomena; 1/2 part Alien Artifact 16 maggio 2015

I thought this book’s genre was “psychic thriller” (and so somewhat like “Mind’s Eye”). But much of the book was a “soldiers of fortune” book as our heroes were in a pitched battle inside Afghanistan fighting a couple hundred terrorists. The Afghan battle sequence was the best part of the book (and was quite well written) -- but that’s not what I was expecting to read about. The psychic angle only seemed to serve two main purposes: [1] to bring the protagonist to the attention of the terrorists and [2] to let the protagonist escape any life-threatening situations. As for the alien artifact, it only shows up near the end of the book – and its purpose is simply to be a “now you need to read the second book” gimmick.

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 Simply Outstanding 4 dicembre 2011

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.

5.0 su 5 stelle MUCH better than the average thriller 14 luglio 2016

Swept along from the "chamber shaking like a gallon can in a paint-store agitator" during the California earthquake to the "hundreds of years of human misery and abuse [hanging] heavy in the air" of the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Brainrush is not your typical shoot-em-up terrorist thriller. Sure, it has the requisite amazingly-endowed hero and sidekicks, the evil jihadist-type baddies, and plenty of overly described weaponry for the mountain-bursting epic battle.

But the story also rushes along amidst clandestine SciFi-scientific brain-enhancing experiments, a tense medieval costume ball showdown, a Bondesque Monte Carlo fundraiser, and more than enough narrow near-escapes. Yet at its still deeper level, there is a 25,000-year-old obelisk with secrets left by an advanced civilization waiting for humankind to evolve beyond its violent tendencies, with a key that only a brain resonating at higher frequencies can unlock – that Jake, with his MRI-induced anomaly, manages to release while defeating the current crop of mind-readied minions. But is that 1000-year premature release a good thing?

I'm going to enjoy reading this well-written series to find out.

Already reading the 2nd book "The Enemy of my Enemy" (which I paid for) and there is a novella (free) called "Gifted" that is beautifully written - it draws you right in from the 1st page. All about the hero's 3 kids, a precocious 7 yr old, a musical prodigy who is 13 yrs old and a 16 yr old formerly autistic boy who becomes the "man of the house" when they are kidnapped. I haven't said anything about "BRAINRUSH" yet, have I? Saving the best for last. Another page-turner about an ex military widower who sustains a head injury whiles he is strapped into the claustrophobic confines of an MRI, DURING AN EARTHQUAKE. And when he awakens, his mental powers have gone through the roof; he is faster than a calculator, remembers everything he sees and hears and has telekinetic abilities. He's also meets a woman who helps him to love again. Is up against a crazed super-villain who wants to dissect his brain. Has great stand-up friends. And, I think, that's all I'm going to tell you. You gotta to read it!
"Brainrush" is Richard Bard's 1st novel. Remember his name. We are going to be hearing a lot from him.
