Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes as it has an unusual plot device.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Thought Readers?
Too many to choose from.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The narration matched the pace of the story though at times the tone would jump where the audio was spliced together.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes however the length of the story was longer than my work day.
Any additional comments?
The narration takes a bit of getting used to but once you have become accustomed to the narrators voice the story is fast paced with twist and turns and decent plot devices. I thoroughly recommend it.
"I find this audio book very engaging and it is easy to just listen in on the story and let the time fly past. The story is about a young man who have learned to stop time and use this ability to gain a great place in stock trade. As he learns of others with this gift, he takes it upon himself to find them and learn more about what it means to be able to do what he can do. Before he knows it he is in the middle of a conflict of "Readers" and Pushers" and with a light crush on the lovely mysterious Mira.
The book is very well written and then narrated by Roberto Scarlato and it is very easy to see the different characters he depict with his voice before your inner eye so to speak. I gladly recommend listening to this artwork."

I enjoyed the story and felt the concept of “the quiet” was quite inventive. I found myself imagining how I myself might use such an ability. I especially liked the intrigue of “Mira,” and look forward to the second book.
I do feel that while I believe the narrator did a fairly good job, sometimes his speech fell somewhat flat. He did a good job when changing characters with different voices, however, I think he struggled to bring the life to the story in a way that it deserves.
Overall, it was an enjoyable book with a wonderful premise that ended too soon.
