There was nothing I didn't like about this book. It was truly amazing. Intriguing, engaging, and very entertaining, Mind's Eye captured my attention totally and completely in a way that is true testament to the talent--the gift--that this author possesses. It's one of those books that you don't want to put down, no matter what. Dinner? What's that? Giving the kids a bath? Do they really need one? I found myself literally holding my breath several times as Mr. Richards catapulted me from one scene to the next in a truly fascinating ride.
Nick, the main character, very quickly gained my allegiance and my heart. He was the perfect combination of bravery and senstivity. After waking up in a dumpster, hurt, confused, and even doubting his own sanity at times, he managed to keep ahold of his integrity while fighting for his own life, in a situation completely out of his control and not of his own making. A truly good man, he is forced to make choices that no one should have to make, as he struggles to survive, and prevent the unspeakable.
The secondary characters were just as well-written. They are likable and relatable--or despicable, depending on whom you are referring to.
The subject matter is one that, to me personally, is very scary, but with technology the way it is today, also believable. Perhaps that is why it is so frightening....
Some of my favorite authors are John Grisham, Dean Koontz, and Nicholas Sparks, and I can honestly say that I enjoyed this book just as much as I have some of my favorites by the above-mentioned.
Honestly, I would give this book more than five stars, if I could. Douglas E. Richards' books will definitely be on my to-read list from now on.
Well done, Mr. Richards, and keep them coming!
