I bought my copy of this via audible!
I knew nothing of the story going in.
This is what I found.
Extreme -- you have mad scientists. Terrorists. Hero's. One with real super powers, and yes! ALIENS!
That is alotta stuff in one book. If I read the blurb and it mentioned all this then I would have bought another in its stead.
I mean seriously...I would have made a big mistake. The author pulled it off brilliantly!
Hard to pin point within all these plot lines but I think it is the plight of autistic chldren and how they are being marginalized within "mainstream" life in general. Well, that is what I took from it.
Amazing. Really and at this price, try it, you might not like it, you might love it as much as me.

I absolutely adored this narrator. His pacing, calm and soothing voice added so much to te characters that I know I am rating this book higher due to the narrator than I would have if I read it. The narrator is absolutely a master at his craft
Get the book....it even has a bit of romance......
Trust me. It is worth the read.

This is the best thriller - science fiction I have read in ages! It has current events as well as glimpses of possible, chilling, futuristic events.
Medical anomalies, thrills, non-stop action, cool weaponry, scifi, romance, mystery and much more. Something for everyone!
I hope you don't have any other pressing matters, because you will NOT be able to put this book down! I first read this book twice, on Kindle, and was thrilled when the author released on Audiobook. R.C. Bray, did a WONDERFUL job as the narrator, capturing the characters' personalities and accents.
What a BRILLIANT debut book, by author Richard Bard! His wonderful descriptive ability, and excellent character development, make you feel like you are in the story.
This was one of the best books I've read all year! BRAINRUSH II was even better, if that's possible. It's out on eBook now and hopefully it will be out soon, (Feb.??) on Audible too.

Jake, a terminally ill former F-16 pilot, is caught in an MRI scanner during an earthquake with some spectacular results! If you love technology-filled military-style thrillers you'll enjoy this. If you like it with an added twist of science 'faction', you'll *love* this. Think somewhere between James Rollins and Matthew Reilly. Only the very, very end of the book left me feeling a little disappointed, the '...and a miracle happened' kind of moment. Still, the rest of the book was an absolute page turner, so I very much look forward to reading the next installment!

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
Those who enjoy nonsensical, cliche-ridden, formulaic tat. Although I must confess I gave up on the story less than half way through.
What was most disappointing about Richard Bard’s story?
Bard telegraphs this lumpen plot-line through a join-the-dot like use of comic-book cliche. The protagonist gains his super-powers after an MRI scan goes wrong (for Pete's sake!). The love interest is innocent, slender, beautiful and buxom, but is also a leading scientist in her field, feisty and independent. Continental Europe is a strange, dark place where secret terrorist organisations lurk on every street corner. And his friends ain't leavin' nobody behind... Pat American tat, best left the other side of the Atlantic.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The narrator did a fair job given the quality of the script.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from BRAINRUSH, a Thriller?
Too much to leave a viable novel behind.
Almost didn't finish this one. Started out great but half way through went off kilter and the ending was . . . a bit out there. It's a 'boys' story, with a superhero, terrorists, guns, bombs, blood and guts, splattering of brain matter and aliens! Not a thriller under my definition, more a James bond meets Spiderman meets Indiana Jones! I can see its appeal for the audience that kind of story appeals to, but not for me thanks!
