Brain: The Man Who Wrote the Book That Changed the World by Dermot Davis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Brain by Dermot Davis is laugh-out-funny all the way through book and I'm looking forward to reading other books by the same author after having read three of his books. I love what he does with characterization, and how the the characters take their corrupt ways further and further into obsession.
His witty writing cracks me up and the little asides in a sentence that makes Daniel so fun to read. As we live in a world that is focused on "now, now" and "social" marketing without thinking, Brain takes on the results of these behaviour. Does it end well?
Brain grabbed and kept my interest, I liked the characters, I could feel the locale almost as though it were another character in the book, and it feels like Daniel will stay with me after I've moved on to my next book. If you are looking for laughs and fun, pick up your copy today.
Would I recommend this read? Yes. Just as Daniel escapes reality, if you are looking to do the same, this is definitely a good book for you.
Offensive content?: Based on language and settings I would recommend it for readers 15 and above.
