|Nuovo a partire da||Usato da|
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

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 :)
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.
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.
