Book Review - Brain Web (Nick Hall Book 2) - Douglas E Richards

Friday, November 4, 2016

This is the 6th book I've read by this author--and as with all the others it kept me enthralled and reading. The scenarios portrayed could be all too real and somewhat frightening. He is a master at writing science fiction thrillers-I kid you not! With all that is going on with terrorists these days and all the crooked politicians surrounding us (from both parties!!) this is one of those book scenarios that could possibly happen. If this series isn't made into a movie I will be very surprised. This can be read as a stand alone but I suggest you read book 1-there is a continuation here. I already have book 3 and will get to read it soon. I really want to know if the 6 major players are able to -------oops--can't give that away!

One other thing I would like to sat-You will never again look at the internet or the cloud in the same way again!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

When the Academy Awards become the target of a brutal terror attack, only one man can stave off massive bloodshed.

MIND'S EYE, the novel that introduced Nick Hall, was a runaway Kindle bestseller. Now Hall returns in a riveting stand-alone thriller, set in an Internet future that is just around the corner. From the New York Times bestselling author of WIRED.

Nick Hall, an unwilling recipient of brain implants, can surf the Web with his thoughts and read minds. And while this makes him one of the most formidable men on earth, he is determined to stay off the grid.

But when terrorists seize control of the Academy Awards and vow to butcher the world's most beloved stars, one by one, in front of an international television audience, Hall is forced to reveal his astonishing capabilities.

Now, power players around the world will stop at nothing to capture him. And as the secretive group working with Hall begins to unravel, he is sure of only two things: he has been betrayed by someone close to him. And the stakes he is playing for could not be any higher . . .

Based on actual research on thought-controlled Web surfing, BrainWeb is a smart thriller that raises a number of intriguing possibilities about a future that is rapidly approaching.

Be sure to look for MindWar (Nick Hall 3)

This seems so interesting! I'm not usually into these kinds of books, but I feel as though this one would be particularly engaging.
I also like that the author is from my neck of the woods!

As someone who is pretty entrenched on the web, it's an interesting idea for me to consider someone who is able to stay off the grid. Can't wait to dive into this series.
