The most highly gifted among them–the Tier Ones–had incredible abilities. Aug 02, Larry H rated it it was amazing. In the yearin an a 2.


It’s hard coming back to them as When I was a small maggot, I read a lot of thrillers. Which means that society at large brilliande not that the abnormals will physically take over, but rather that a few generations down the road, they will have taken over through the free market and social Darwinism.

Brilliance is a very brainy thriller, and it moves at breakneck speed. There are others, one in particular who have devastated the country because they can read the stock market. I didn’t feel like I was reading a book, but rather seeing a weird look at the author’s private thoughts.

Brilliance by Marcus Sakey

Inevitably many Normals feared that they were rapidly being shunted into obsolescence and that soon they would be irrelevant, perhaps even turned into the slaves of the Brilliants. Oct 22, Maggie Stiefvater rated it it was amazing Shelves: Sakey, don’t change a thing. That’s somewhat interesting, and it may make good fodder for the series that this book sets up, but Brilliance doesn’t bode very well for the series.


Dec 16, Dan rated it did not like it Shelves: Not enough to keep me riveted for book 2. Apr 03, James Thane rated it really liked it Shelves: The plot was cookie-cutter predictable, and the premise on which brilliancce plot hinged fairly inane.

Such is the premise behind this excellent thriller from Marcus Sakey. The premise was to me completely unbelievable. Domestic terrorism has become a common occurance, and the country is on edge. The premise here isn’t very gripping or believable. The screenplays would write themselves. And now brilliajce done again in Brilliance. Take our protagonist, Nick Cooper, called “Cooper,” who can read patterns so well he sqkey even track fellow brilliants the name of these gifted people knowing nothing other than their movements to escape him.

Beginning in the s, a small percentage of humans with unusual abilities began to be born. He’s charming and flawed, a divorced family man, a devoted government agent, a dutiful speeder Cooper. DAR agents won’t be in on the deception, and will attempt to hunt Nick down. The sajey has the feeling and pace of a traditional suspense novel, complete with a government agent at the center — but it adds one intriguing sci-fi conceit. In the US, we have had the Snowden scandal, and many of us learned, though some of us had already suspected, that our government had been bugging its own citizens.

On that note, these ideas are not nearly as aggressive and “in your face” as in one of Correia’s novels. Also, the writing felt like a bad cop show. I want car chases, but I want to know the characters involved intimately, or I don’t care. See all 3 questions about Brilliance…. Lists brilliancd This Book.

The extreme responses made in an attempt to keep things as they are, to maintain the status quo, smell of recent reactions to some other minority groups. Look deeper beyond the fast paced action and it does summon questions of how we treat others around us.

Additionally, some elements of the book did not lend itself well to narration.

However, no matter how evolved they might be, they’re still human and still have problems that any person can relate to. They made me kill thousands, but I only have one target now.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. One abnorm made billions in stocks, essentially causing Wall Street to come tumbling and shutting down the world as we know it Sakey is a fan of free-market economics, that’s for sure.
