    One thought on “Hearing Thoughts”

    1. As is often the case I received this book free for the purposes of review but I'm absolutely candid about it below because potential buyers deserve to know what it is they're about to pay money for.The nutshell on this novel is pretty well summed up by the back cover. Normally I would consider it a spoiler to reveal so much about the plot but since it IS on the back Essentially, a high-power attorney is kidnapped by aliens and now can hear other people's thoughts. Thus the title. Not exactly mas [...]

    2. It was a decent story. I would highly suggest an editor though to tighten the story and to deal with past/present tense issues. I received a copy of this book for an honest review and my honest opinion is that had I paid money for it, I would have been a bit upset at the quality of the editing/writing. I gave the book two stars because I did enjoy the base plot.

    3. Hearing Thoughts by Anthony Diffley is superb. His writing lures readers straight into his adventurous yet highly entertaining novel. Readers will find themselves totally absorbed into this story. Hearing Thoughts is the most compelling science fiction fantasy novel, I have read. Anthony Diffley has masterfully woven fantasy, politics, murder and a mystery all in one captivating read. A man's friend is being accused as the murder for his wife's deathever, he doesn't believe his friend committed [...]

    4. The story starts slowly (the first 4 chapters could probably have been covered in one) but by the middle of the book I was truly ingrigued. Daniel was an interesting character and I liked to see how he developed throughout the book. Individual chapters were good reads in themselves and I liked the way in which the author attempted to mix genres. However, the overall plot seemed unoriginal and was too scattered with irrelevant religious overtones.I think this author shows good promise, but is not [...]

    5. Mixing Sci-fi with terrorism today is an interesting idea. And Burke is a likeable character who has suffered terribly from 9/11. It is only fitting he would want to make use of otherworldly technology to improve the peace vibe on earth. But should he? Diffley never stumbles as he lays out this fast paced story and leaves it open to a sequel. But he deserves a better proof-reader.
