The Brainrush Trilogy - this is not a Suspense novel
The novel is a action triller with some sci-fi
Not my cup of tea as I'm not really into action/military novel, I
would have given up on book 1 if it wasn't for the excellent
narration by RC Bray

Well narrated but just a silly, overblown, over emotional fantasy rather like a kids comic.

The narrator did a great job but he can only do so much with the story he has to work with. I purchased the trilogy because it was a box set, 3 for 1, and it had some decent reviews. By 2 hours into the second book it was like relistening to book 1 again, same plot, same bad guy, same stupidity by the protagonist.
The hero is supposed to be the most evolved, most intelligent man alive, yet is constantly out witted by the bad guy, who won't die. This super smart person allows himself to be druged and lose his faculties, which puts him in bad situations, over, and over, and over again. He finds himself at the hands of his enemies that desperately want him dead, but instead of killing him, they monologue, over, and over, and over this allowing the hero to escape.
Book 3, more of the same. The super human hero is out witted, druged, trapped by monologuing bad guy. I got to the point where I have spaced out but don't care to go back and relisten to what I missed. Wrapped up in the middle of it alllove 2 super cheesy love stories.
At this point, I have 4 hours left and I am just trying to make myself finish. I have over 150 books in my library and have only struggled this much with 1 other book. R.C. Gray does a great job, just not a lot to work with in my opinion. I cannot see it garnering the praise described in the publishers summary.

after the second book it becomes predictable. Character are two dimensional and stereo types. Like the premise of the story and the first book was pretty good
