Written from Joe's point of view it engages you in the action and Tullius does a good job of relaying the feelings and thoughts of the character. The first few chapters really grabbed my attention, throwing me into a new world while explaining certain aspects about life as a telepath clearly. It made me want to read on and the name "Thought Theives" Tullius uses to describe the gifted humans intrigued me. The plot line was original and different and did keep my interest however there were a few things that made it a struggle to read the book around about the halfway mark.

The first was that the book is written in terms of days. It jumps to random points in Joe's life while leading up to day 100. In the midst of this there are constant memories and flashbacks which although were easy to figure out and understand, for me it made the story too disjointed as it was frequently jumping from one place to another rather than following a constant flow. Some memories and thoughts also seemed to repeat themselves continually and by the halfway mark it was becoming slightly repetitive and I found it a struggle to stay focused.

The start of the book lead me into a false sense of security and turned into something I wasn't expecting. I didn't realise how dark and twisted it would get. It slowly got darker and more graphic as it went on and I found myself skipping long sections of description as it made me cringe and feel slightly nauseated. When being asked to review this book it was the different theme and the prospect of romance that sold it to me most but the romances were more based on a sexual side of things or Joe berating himself about previous events which became slightly annoying towards the end.

An interesting premise, telling the story of Joe, a telepathic 'thought thief' in an alternate world where they have been rounded up and made to live in their own secluded, patrolled city of 'Brightside'. Joe is an interesting if tricky narrator - his thoughts are very jumbled and we end up with random flashes of information, jumping timelines and flashbacks throughout which can be quite disorientating for the reader. It gets quite graphic both sexually and in terms of gore as well - be warned. Although Joe is quite relatable and the voice of the novel makes it an enjoyable read, the plot gets a bit far-fetched and a bit harder to follow after the middle of the book, but it's an interesting story none-the-less.

Not a literary masterpiece but I found this a real page turner. I read this through breaks at work and couldn't wait to read on. The basic concept is excellent. I found the descriptions well written and the characters well drawn you can almost feel their pain. There is even a twist at the end

Took a while to get into this but I did find it enjoyable. If i can't get into a book within the first 10 pages I usually give up but i persevered with this one and was glad that I did. Not a bad "throwaway" novel
