A Very Pleasant Surprise!

I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised by “The Thought Pushers”. I had so many questions at the end of “The Thought Readers” that I wasn’t sure where the authors were going to go with the sequel, but I was looking forward to finding out.

“The Thought Pushers” does a great job of building on events in “The Thought Readers” as Darren’s story continues. We get to ride along with Darren as he continues to discover more about who and what he is, the world he is a part of, who is family really is, and so much more. The plot twists keep coming and keep you guessing what’s going to be around the next corner. And of course, there is the complicated relationship with Mira, who can do a complete 180 if the wrong thing is said or even implied. The authors did a great job with continuing to develop the characters into people I cared more and more about as the story went on, and the story kept drawing me further into it.

The nicest surprise for me was the quality of the narration. I wasn’t very impressed with Roberto Scarlato’s narration of “The Thought Readers”, but this time around I thought he did a really nice job. There seemed to be more emotion in his voice, which is a characteristic that significantly contributes to keeping me interested in the story and the characters.

I give “The Thought Pushers” a definite 2 thumbs up! And now I’m really looking forward to the third installment of this series as well as the offshoot, “The Time Stopper”.

A thoroughly entertaining sequel

(Spoiler Free!)

After being pleasantly surprised by the quality of 'The Thought Readers', i was eager to dive into the sequel. The book is a direct continuation of events from the previous 'The Thought Readers', so I highly recommend reading it before this one.

The story concentrates on Darren's supernatural abilities once again, as he searches for clues about his past, the fate of his parents and what it means to be a Pusher. Considering the events of the first book, I actually found 'The Though Pushers' highly entertaining. This is the hallmark of a good sequel, as it builds upon events from the previous book, while fleshing out familiar characters and at the same time introducing new ones.

Speaking of characters, the protagonist - Darren - continues to be a relatable and interesting lead character. His complicated relationship with love interest Mira was also a great narrative hook for me, as i wanted to see where it could go.

As for the Narrator (Robert Scarlato), he does a fantastic job of giving the characters life and personality. It made listening a very entertaining experience.

If you are a fan of supernatural fiction with a riveting storyline, then this is the book for you. Just do yourself a favour and read the first book to give you the full experience.

The Mind Dimensions never cease to impress

Would you listen to The Thought Pushers again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to the book again. But I couldn't decide which one is better. I don't think that one is better than the other. Both have their pro's and con's. Although I like some characteristics of listening the book like for example different impersonations from the narrator. He gives them life and I really like that. So as a personal a personal preference I would stick with the audio edition.

What did you like best about this story?

Darren all the time. I love all he has to go through and he knows how to deal with things like no one other. His personality is intriguing and I like that mysticism that revolves around him.

What about Roberto Scarlato’s performance did you like?

He brought action, drama, emotions and a well representation of each character. If I would just read the book, of course I would enjoy it also, there was an awesome cliff hanger from book 1 which will bring me those emotions I experienced. But Roberto Scarlato brings to life my imagination of how the story unfolds.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely, I've been always so interested in this kind of science fiction so I enjoy these listenings and readings on a weekend free of my duties, with some headphones and I transport to these realities provided by these kind of books.

Any additional comments?

I've been intrigued now with the book 0 which gives us an insight of Mira's life from what can I see about the description, I think is going to be a complementary listening for this amazing story by Dima Zales & Anna Zaires. And last but not least, if there's going to be a sequel, please make it come faster!
