Pushing Brilliance (Kyle Achilles #1) Reviews
I love to search out new authors that are as good an inspiring as my favourites and I just found one! To compare some of my favourite authors include: James Rollins, Lee Child, Brad Thor, Vince Flynne, Ben Coes, Michael D O'Brien to name a few. Tim Tigner is now also one of them. This story was great had action, science, geo-political topics and a great set of Characters! Give this book a try you will not be disappointed.
The audiobook was narrated by Dick Hill who did a great job, at times I th ...more
The best part is that you have a great day with a little more fun and more interesting things are getting better
This book is a conspiracy theorists' wet dream. Completely far-fetched but you know that going in - right? It was a lot of fun. Kyle Achilles, a former Olympic biathlete and covert operative is framed for the murder of his family. To clear his name he must find the real killer, or killers. But where to start? He has very little to go on. His only ally is his dead brother's fiancée, Katya, a brilliant Russian mathematician.
They start with his father's and brother's failed business ventu ...more
This is the first entry in the Kyle Achilles series.
Achilles is living the good life when his parents and his brother are killed and he is arrested for their murder. Promptly escaping from jail, he roams the world with his almost sister in law, finding it's all based on a wonder drug that is made by the Russians.
Fast, exciting read, though the protagonists seem a bit too good to be true, even compared to Mitch Rapp and the like.
Like other readers this was my first Tim Tigner book. My first thought after a couple of chapters was Wow !
Very well written, with great characters. This book is easy to read, and flows very well. Achilles is the main character, a tough guy with allot of skills, but allot of depth to him as well. You can't help but like him. The Author has done a great job in pulling you into the story, and he kept me interested throughout the book. If you like Action Thrillers then definitely add Tim Tigner boo ...more
Usually when I read a book on audible I listen at 1.10x speed which seems about right for me. If it gets pretty boring, I up the speed to 1.25x. On rare occasions when the book gets SUPER boring, I crank the speed up to 1.5x which makes the narrator sound like a Chipmunk on crack. When I [finally] finished Pushing Brilliance, I was at 1.75x! This book should have been named Pushing Boringilliance.
I mean, it started well enough, some good action, an apparently good story line. I liked Tim Tigner' ...more
I was contacted by Mr. Tigner and offered a pre-release of Pushing Brillance. I was skeptical at first, however, once I started reading I couldn't put the book down. The characters have enough background detail to keep your interest in what is going to happen next. The plot is practical and every chapter leaves you thinking, maybe I will read just one more chapter.....
I look forward to reading some of the other offerings by this author!.
thrills, mystery, politics, realistic characters! what more could you want? how about 20 IQ points? what would you do to get them?
great read! don't miss this one.
