    One thought on “The Prediction”

    1. After I entered the giveaway for this book, I was contacted by the author and got a free copy in exchange for an honest review. This did not alter my opinion of the book in any way, nor did the fact that Darren lives in The Netherlands and has a dog named Frodo, which is really cool.Daniel Geller is a genius. He’s able to predict the date of death of someone based on mathematical calculations. When his thesis gets rejected, he throws it all away. Twelve years later, an old professor, John Redm [...]

    2. Even though the synopsis sounded very interesting, I wasn't really sure if I would like it. I thought that maybe there would be a lot of mathematical equations and math talk. But, boy was I wrong.This Book is great. It is a great written story fowling mainly Daniel Geller the former Trinity College Student and his former professor John and John’s wife Claire as well his ex- girlfriend Grace, as they deal with different challenges in life, such as the loss of a child, spousal abuse. And an old [...]

    3. Warning: Don't start reading this novel, if you don't have time to finish it! It gets you hooked from the first paragraphs, and it asks to be read in one sitting.The title, "The Prediction", pretty much sums up the starting point of the novel: the formula to predict people's date of death. After reading the blurb and taking a look at the cover, I feared that the book would be filled with mathematical equations or something of the sort, but it is nothing like that. It is a thriller – crime – [...]

    4. Five out of five stars for the story line. I finished it in one sitting - amazing. This book deserves to be read!Edit: I changed my rating from four to five stars, because the mistakes I found has been corrected in newer editions and has less to do with the author and more to do with the lack of an editor, which has also been resolved.As a Brit living in the Netherlands, I can personally vouch for all the Dutch oddities and descriptions in 'The Prediction'. The statements and descriptions were s [...]

Finished ~ The Prediction by Darren SugrueCompleted 5/314 of 5 starsI received this book through Library Thing from the author for my honest review.Warning ~ this book may not be for anyone who has a problem reading about the loss of a child.

    6. Brilliant! Entirely 'un-put-downable', my Kindle was stuck to my hand whenever I had a spare moment to read. I absolutely loved the storyline, the flawed characters and the intricate details. The detailed depictions of both Amsterdam and Dublin, interwoven with little idiosyncrasies and local references make you feel right at home, whilst relating to and walking in the shoes of the various characters.Although there are a few mistakes, it says something for the story, when you're entirely willing [...]

    7. The interesting concept of being able to predict the exact time of a person's death! Once you get hooked, you don't want to put the book down, as you want to see how valid the formula is. The characters are believable and realistic. The author writes well. Great job, and I would recommend.

    8. Such a great premise, well written, exciting and a thrilling twist. I wanted more math (chaos theory, anyone?). I'm looking forward to more by this author.

    9. I received a free copy of **the Prediction** by *Darren Sugrue* from **StoryCartel** in exchange for an honest review. I couldn't be happier with my choice in this case. Many books available on StoryCartel are written by authors with whom I am unfamiliar, but I have come across some very good books at that site, and will continue to look there for books that might interest me. **The Prediction** turned out to be an outstanding book worthy of 5 Stars, and I will be watching for anything else this [...]

    10. Disclosure: I downloaded a free copy from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.This story revolves around Daniel Geller, a former Trinity College math Phd student who theorized a controversial formula that accurately predicts time of death. Forward to 12 years later, he spent years out of academia because his thesis was rejected.

    11. This is a very intriguing story with an unusual premise, Daniel is a young man whose thesis which predicts the date of death was rejected twelve years ago. However his old tutor, now a professor grieving for his young son, tries to get him to re-present it because one of the dates proved came true. As a debut novel this is an excellent story which grips the reader from the beginning.

    12. I received this review copy from LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review. Firstly, the novel deals with issues such as the loss of a child and domestic abuse so be aware. I was absolutely blown away with this book from the beginning to finish. The author did an incredible job of making it a fast paced novel that draws you in but also takes the time to develop the main characters. I had great difficulty putting it down. It is based on a mathematical genius who has developed a formula that c [...]

    13. As much as I wanted to finish this book in one sitting, it is so rich in detail that it took several days to get through it. It's one that will stay on my bookshelf and be re-read in a couple years.The book takes place in Ireland and Amsterdam, so be aware when picking it up that there is a lot of slang and place-names that may be unfamilar to many readers. For me, it didn't make the story any less understandable. The book follows several plots told from the points of view of several main charac [...]

    18. This was recommended to me via a friend of a friend on Facebook. I thought I would give it the first few chapters and if I didn't get into it I would leave it. How pleasantly surprised I was! The concept of predicting your death using math is very interesting (although totally unrealistic). But the characters and plot really pull you in. And without wanting to give away too much; a terrific twist at the end that I honestly didn't see coming. Well worth it.

    19. I really enjoyed this book from start to finish! Although I was able to predict (no pun intended) some of the outcomes -- I won't go into detail -- I still was enthralled by the twists & turns.

    21. --- I received a free ebook copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review What a wonderful surprise it was! Great debut novel: original, suspenseful and fast paced. You will be hooked up from the beginning and, in fact, unable to predict the ending. Read it before it becomes a movie!

    22. Outstanding, best book I have read in the last couple of months! Interesting and different storyline. Involves you with the well-developed characters. Surprise twist. Looking forward to more books by this author.

    23. Very disappointed in this. Poor writing, poor story. There was so much unnecessary filler in this, if you only read the first sentence in each paragraph you would more than understand the story. Might have worked as a short story.

    24. I really enjoyed this book. It kept me hooked from the first page to the very last. I loved the suspense and the detail that kept the story realistic. Definitely well worth picking up.

    25. ksteenbookreview called it 'creative, original, and a must read if you like well written books!"The Prediction was a book that the author was kind enough to send me to read, and I managed to find the time to get to it today. And I must say, and I must, that it was quite the read. From the moment I picked it up to the moment I put it down I was amazed at the writing style and choice in diction from the author. Now, as I always do, let me tell you a bit about what you are getting into when you pic [...]

    26. I received this book from a giveaway by the author and was asked to give it a review once I finished it.What I like: The idea of the story was something I've thought about before, something that really truly intrigued me and I was not disappointed. Each character held their own and had their own distinct personalities, I didn't have to remember who was speaking because the dialogue gave me good indication with how they spoke. The cover also has a perfect tie-in to the whole story, something that [...]

    27. I have just finished The Prediction after yet ANOTHER sleepless night; I just couldn't put it down. Ive been lucky as Ive enjoyed some really fab reads in the last few months.But this one was a complete surprise in many ways. I thought I knew what the story was going to be about, how it would play out, even to how it may end. WRONG, WRONG WRONG!This is Darren's debut novel which is so hard to believe as he is an excellent writer who has created some great characters and I knew from the first pag [...]

    28.
