    One thought on “Mind Thief

    1. I did not finish this book I couldn t finish I made it to 70% before I stopped The problem doesn t rest in grammar or anything like that I just couldn t stand reading about the awful people in the story any longer The villain is as bad as the protagonists, just on a different scale The main character and POV for the story cares for sex than the woman he claims to love Non neurotypical characters are handled with zero sensitivity and misrepresented LBGTI, when they come up at all, are dismissed [...]


    2. I struggled with this book at first, but ended up quite enjoying it If you like science fiction, don t mind loads of sex reading about it, that is , and read the book as a good yarn, Mind Thief isn t bad and now and then, it s great.Darrell B Nelson s sexy sci fi romp starts in a psychiatrist s office, where two college age patients meet for the first time in the waiting room, and promptly have sex in the cupboard Only later do we learn a little about them Vivian, the young woman, has a massive [...]


    3. This book appears to be about a student, Howie, who is losing his mind and who then proceeds to have a vivid and colourful relationship with Vivian, who has already lost hers The repeated descriptions of their sexually explicit behaviour detracted and distracted from what could have been a quite interesting plotline Their first encounter occurs inside the broom cupboard of their psychiatrist s office premises while they each await their appointments In itself it was a clever and intriguing begin [...]


    4. Satire, sex and sci fi.As far as I know, none of the real people in this book have talked to my fictional character, so those conversations are also fictional If world leaders do talk to figments of my imagination then I have to wonder how the world is still here.Mind Thief is roller coaster ride mixing a lot of sex scenes, with historical scenes, with a science fantasy plot line, with dark satirical humour It works quite well on all those fronts and is certainly a very different kind of book.Ho [...]


    5. Mind Thief is an interesting variant of a dream as old as humanity immortality No magic potions, no chemicals, no genetic modifications just steal the body of a young man our main villain is a man and replace his mind with yours There is a good deal of scientific explanation behind the process and a lot of adventure The end is totally unexpected or at least unexpected for most of the book Filled with many streams of memories, recollecting known historical events that marked our recent period, ev [...]


    6. The idea of taking over someone s mind has been done before, most famously in Total Recall, but unlike that story, this one follows the process of conversion, thus putting a new spin on the idea I like the transitions between the present and the past, which helps give this novel a different structure Also the difference in attitude between the two characters is clearly shown which avoids confusion Does the reference to historical people Marilyn Monroe, Lady Diana, Mata Hari, Archduke Ferdinand, [...]


    7. Mind Thief by Darrell Nelson is a stylistically layered novel representing an established premise with an interesting twist The established premise is the attempt to achieve eternal life a tried and true hook if done properly and the twist is the method employed to do so The method is for the seeker of eternal life antagonist to invade and eventually take over another individual s mind and body someone younger and healthy , thereby supplanting the former aging and possibly dying life with the ne [...]


    8. This one is really hard to call It s one of the most difficult to review books I ve run across On the surface it would seem to be a teenager s wet dream thinly disguised as a science fiction novel The beginning was rough and I wasn t always able to determine who was speaking Too many H names for one thing Hanson, Harriman Hall, Harriman, Howie And is Harriman the same as Harriman Hall Example He Hanson shook off that image and punched the speed dial on the phone Harriman picked it up on the firs [...]


    9. This is a three and a half star review Faced with the need to round up or round down, I m rounding up because Mind Thief is admittedly a very different type of fiction than that with which I am most accustomed that s neither good nor bad, it s simply the reason behind my decision to optimistically award a fourth star.Overall impression Mind Thief is to traditional college aged 18 22 years young men now what Bill Ted s Excellent Adventure was to high school boys a generation ago That s a good thi [...]


    10. Mind Thief by Darrell Nelson is about a college student, Howie, who unwittingly takes part in a scientific study that has great consequences for the fate of the world and his own life During this period, he also falls for Vivian And so this book is sort of two stories that tie in together In addition, Mind Thief is filled with historical vignettes or hallucinations that interrupt Howie s life It all sort of works, and the author deserves credit for being able to weave these disparate story lines [...]


    11. This was a tough call for me and I almost wish there was a 3.5 star button I really loved the concept The idea that a madman is attempting to transfer his thoughts into a young man and take over his body is interesting Also, I love history and enjoyed all of the historical bits, particularly the first hand looks into the lives of historical fiction If the book would have focused on these aspects, I feel it could have easily been a five star book for me.However, there is a lot of explicit sex in [...]


    12. The premise of this book is quite good It is difficult to summarize without giving too much away, but here is my attempt The main character, one of the H names, starts having false memories and losing time The book is his journey to reconcile those memories with his reality As he works through the inconsistencies, he starts to uncover an unlikely source for the false memories I thought it was a clever twist at the end The majority of the story is carried through dialog, which gives it a good ste [...]


    13. Mind Thief Review I ve got to warn you, the book is quirky, but then so are a lot of books It literally starts out with a bang On the way, is either the most unrealistic dialogue I ve ever read or I need to start going out The dialogue leads to the aforementioned bang an inventive sexual episode in a supply closet Then, it s off to the races The protagonist has memories of things that didn t happen like a sister he never really had He also suffers blackouts and happens to be funding his matricu [...]


    14. I simultaneously liked and disliked Mind Thief The story was an interesting one where a young, sex starved, college boy starts seeing a psychiatrist There he meets a bona fide crazy young girl named Vivian and the story progresses from there Howie is involved in some brain studies, which unbeknownst to him, have a far nefarious intent Our young hero is plagued by memories that are not his, and by his roller coaster relationship with the volatile Vivian As the story plays out, Vivian and Howie m [...]


    15. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review Mind Thief by Darrell B Nelson presents a fascinating premise The idea that someone s life can be extended indefinitely by siphoning off the minds and lives of others is intriguing The antagonist and what he does, reminds of a vampire, particularly Bram Stoker s Dracula whose personal philosophy was that to continue his own life, and the lives of a few select others he values for his own personal reasons, he had the right to take others lives fr [...]


    16. I had difficulty getting through the novel as I was inclined to move past sensual scenes I was interested to discover about the premise of mind control and what sci fi elements the author would use to create the conflict The historical elements and links to the past offered an interesting take on the antagonist His role and impact upon many significant world events and the ageless recycling of minds brooded in the distance but could not break past the boorishness of the characters It was diffic [...]


    17. The story was just okay for me Mainly, I was put off, not so much by the sex, but by the language Although the way Vivian spewed off her words was interesting, it distracted too much from the story, which I found intriguing The sex can be explicit and outrageous, but then there are countless erotica out there that makes this normal It s a loopy read about Howie who seems to be losing his mind and then meets a girl who already has lost hers As they join together in ways than one to get to the bo [...]


    18. It took me a few chapters to sync with this book I found the prose uneven and slightly clumsy, I couldn t quite tell who was talking, I wasn t too keen on the sex scenes, and I didn t find it funny, either It does slip in to a groove several chapters in, and I started to enjoy some of the interesting ideas, bizarre situations and lively characters The plot seemed to go out of the window in one or two places, but I m not sure that it matters all that much in a book like this, and the climax itsel [...]
