Publisher's Summary

When Nick Hall wakes up in a dumpster - bloodied, without a memory, and hearing voices in his head - he knows things are bad. But they're about to get far worse. Because he's being hunted by a team of relentless assassins. Soon Hall discovers that advanced electronics have been implanted in his brain, and he now has two astonishing abilities. He can surf the web using thoughts alone. And he can read minds. But who inserted the implants? And why? And why is someone so desperate to kill him?
As Hall races to find answers, he comes to learn that far more is at stake than just his life. Because his actions can either catapult civilization to new heights - or bring about its total collapse.
Extrapolated from actual research on thought-controlled web surfing, Mind's Eye is a smart, roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing, and sometimes chilling, possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.

Great Premise - Started Great, Fizzled Out

This book started great. Like really great. It was all action, interesting concepts about what it would be like to surf the Internet with your mind, and have ESP to boot. To be on the run, and confused about what was going on. As the hero figures things out, so do we.

Then suddenly, it's a really cliche romance novel.

I put up with that to see what happened, the romance angle wasn't TOO bad, pretty cringey and totally slowed the pace right down, but not awful.

Then the book wrapped up with about 15 different twists all of which where obvious as soon as the preceding one or two where revealed. And there was like two whole chapters where the heroes and villain explaining in great monologues exactly every little supposed detail of how they double and trip guess each other.

Oh the villain is supposed to be a chess genius - it didn't come across as plausible at ALL.

Then it was wrapped up into the neatest most perfect gushy bow ever.

The genre shifts are just so jarring, and the ending was just so rosy it was painful.

Narration was good, premise was excellent, started well. A great shame.

Defenitely worth the credit!

Really fast pace and engaging story with great characters. I accidently read the sequel first without realizing it was a sequel and enjoyed it. Reading this first novel added some missing context but both work as stand alone stories too.
