Pushing Brilliance (Kyle Achilles #1) Reviews
The best part is that you have a great day with a little more fun and more interesting things are getting better
This book had many positive aspects but way too much detail; a convoluted plot, and an ending that found personally unsatisfying.
Wow, just wow!
I could not read this fast enough. Kyle comes across as Superman and charming hunk, capable of amazing feats and a mind to match. I won't rehash the plot, but it involves a former CIA agent, murder in his family, a lovely dame in distress, a mind enhancing drug and those darn Russians. It moves fast and satisfies in the end. Just read it already!
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
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
What next is the question! The writer poses with such intelligence...... Just enough romance to keep it spicy...Love the ride
This is a highly unusual and intrepid (what else?) hero. He's a free climber, a skill which comes in mighty handy during his spy adventures. He was also an Olympic gymnast before being recruited by the CIA. His partner-in-crime is a mathematics professor who has no experience with this kind of business, but is as smart and gutsy as they come. All in all, a brilliant read (pun intended, although not a particularly good one) International intrigue, a story that runs all the way to Russia and back, ...more
This book started out well enough and I appreciate the authors attempt to create a complex plot. But his efforts reminded me of the difference between a master of this genre (such as Lee Child who is the author I think Tim Tigner is trying to be) and an amateur. It didn’t take too long into the book for it to all go bad. The conflict at the heart of this plot is so absurd that it’s impossible to suspend belief. And in terms of character development, there was none. The only purpose for ANY other ...more
