The start of the book was really good, the author doesn’t waste any time to form his main character. It lets you immediately inside his mind and you can join the fun from chapter O. All of his fears, joys, and wonders are revealed and you can find yourself easily emphasizing with him.
Later on, the storyline develops in a nice fashion, Darren teams up with a great partner (no teasers) and discovers more and more about himself and what he can do. I loved new secrets discovered step by step, especially when he finds out about his past, something he never knew about. Also the “switching minds” scenes are very interesting. The rhythm of the book is good, you get all the information’s you should expect from a well written book.
I switched between the audible version and the Kindle version. The narrator is good, but sometimes I felt the dots were too sudden and the story too slow so I switched on my own inner voice together with reading. But if you want to spare your eyes at times - as I do since I am reading huge amounts on a daily basis - or you just love to hear great stories on the road then it’s a great choice. The quality of the recording is good so you can get used to the narrator quickly enough.
I hardly wait the second book!
This series has a unique concept in the mind reading genre that was executed very well. I enjoyed the initial insights into the thoughts of the secondary characters, though towards the end I felt there could have been less random mind reading and more concentration on building character relationships. As Darren mentions throughout the novel, it would have been nice to not be effectively told through mind reading what a character was thinking all the time. The idea behind the mind dimension was well crafted and I took it on face value. There was enough world building to make the concept plausible without spending too much time dragging down the plot.
Despite both The Time Stopper and The Thought Readers being told in first person, Darren had his own distinct voice which I thought was well done because in a lot of books I’ve read with dual POVs, they all tend to sound the same. I didn’t mind Darren as a POV character, mostly because of the great writing, but as a human being I’m not sure we could be friends. Because of his abilities everything in life seemed to come so easily for him and I found myself at times feeling like he was a bit clinical in his reactions to some of the events in the plot. I’m hoping this is a deliberate move on the part of the author and that Darren’s perspective changes as the series goes on.
If I had one issue with The Thought Readers it was the insta-lust/love. I’m not a fan of this trope in any context and was a little disappointed when I came across it, especially given that I liked Mira a lot less in this novel than in her POV novella. Overall though, I really enjoyed the first installment in this series and will look forward to reading the rest and seeing how everything develops.
Darren is the main character, a young man who can step outside time and walk around while everyone and everything is frozen. He finds that he can read the thoughts of others as well.
He finds out suddenly that he is not alone in this ability when he meets a beautiful young woman while gambling in Atlantic City.
The character of Darren was pretty well drawn, and everything is told from his viewpoint. He finds the young woman, Mira, in Brooklyn, (He has no very good opinion of anyplace other than Manhattan, by the way) and is then drawn into her dark world of danger and revenge.
Results: fun to read, not too deep, and ends on a cliffhanger. It's a series, of course, so you can purchase the next episode, (and the next, and the next after that) if you want to continue.

There is action/suspense but it’s also mind-bending and slightly sci-fi.Read more
