Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to read someones mind, to hear their every thought Might sound good, but it really isn t Joe Nolan is a Thought Thief, one of many who can hear the though of everyone around him He is one of many who have that ability, including his father Deemed dangerous by society and politicians Thought Thieves are rounded up and put into a place called Brightside, which is no than a glorified prison camp dressed as a gilded cage Hearing everyones thou [...]

When I first began BrightSide I wasn t sure I was going to like it It began a little slow for me and I wasn t sure about the style of writing However, because I was intrigued by the subject matter of the book, I continuedd was pleasantly rewarded As the story progressed so did the energy I liked the use of flashbacks and feel they worked better to explain the main character s personality and state of mind than if we had met him in childhood While I was very happy with the ending, where I felt a [...]

You know sometimes when you wish you had the ability to do something extraordinary and how cool it would be This book explores what could be the consequences of having this ability Of how fear and paranoia can control a nation and how something as simple as choice is taken away because of that fear This book is fantastic I could not put it down hence why it only took me a day to get through It kept me hooked from beginning to heart pounding end I thought the timeline was easy enough to follow Th [...]

My original Brightside audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.I was captured by the synopsis of Brightside by Mark Tullius Sounding like a great and fairly unique science fiction story I mean could you imagine if there were people that could hear your most intimate and private thoughts And at all times As you can imagine the general public didn t like this very much, they could get all of the nation secrets The government rounds up all of the thought thieves into, es [...]

For of my reviews visit losttobooks Brightside follows the story of humans who have the power of telepathy 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 i [...]

An unusual and somewhat dark story where society confines any telepath they find to an isolated mountain town called Brightside Accused of stealing thoughts, they are taken away from all they love, stripped of all they own and sent to live in a controlled society where everyone can read your every thought and breaking the rules can have drastic consequences The main protagonist, Joe Nolan, is an interesting man who does not always make good choices, but you can not help but feel empathy for him [...]

I really liked this book When I first started it, I wasn t sure that was going to be case, but it drew me in and I couldn t put it down I feel like there are lots of stories about telepaths out there, and I feared this would be a run of the mill paranormal fantasy, but I was wrong There is something different about this book, and that is a good thing The characters were interesting, though not always very noble, and I found that I really cared about them Maybe it is because this is an adult book [...]

Imagine if you knew every dark thought people had about you, hearing every nasty thought of your jealous co workers or your girlfriend s torrid past or a political leader s burning secrets Mark Tullius delivers an engaging, powerful story of an idyllic mountainside town, a community of telepaths A place where these Thought Thieves are rounded up and kept away from the rest of society The town is Brightside, the story is about what happens when one man wants to leave When I was little, I used to [...]

Mark Tullius lets you take a long hard look at yourself and humanity Are we really as humane, sympathetic and caring as we like to think How many of us would stab each other in the back if we had the chance, new eachothers weaknesses Would you be a Wayne A Joe A Sara One of the boots We strive to be unique, but when it comes to it, would we rather stick with the crowd Who would we betray, just to belong

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 Jo [...]

Brightside by Mark TulliusHave you ever been asked if you could have any superpower and then you mentally begin listing off all that you can think of Telepathy is always one of those that s listed but rarely ever chosen Well, Mark Tullius doesn t treat telepathy as a superpower in his book Brightside In fact, the world is afraid of those who can hear others thoughts So much so, that those can are hunted down, rounded up, and sent to live up in the beautiful mountain town of Brightside Although t [...]

It seems that there are those among us who are able to receive the thoughts of others which is a gift and a curse Some can t handle it, some take advantage of it and the rest just try to get along with a talent they can t turn off The general population becomes aware of those who have the ability and decide to round them up and isolate them in a closed compound on the top of a wilderness mountain where they live an artificial life amongst their own where secrets are next to impossible to keep, [...]

I received this book from a giveaway on another website.Not too long ago I finished another Mark Tullius book, 25 Perfect Days, and I enjoyed it a lot This author has not disappointed me in Brightside either, making him an author of quality writing in my opinion I had a hard time putting down this thriller which is told from the first person perspective of Joe Nolan My interest was captured from the very beginning and the story held it the entire time never once did I grow bored or tire of the s [...]

The premise for this book and the read itself was chilling Tight, fast paced writing with believable characters, and yes, an all too believable plot that could actually be true No spoilers.but I, like Tullius, would like you to imagine that you could hear other people s thoughts Imagine that the government rounded you up and put you in a facility or a fabricated community called Brightside with others like you Which would you choose To follow the directives and be a good little citizen, to act o [...]

3.5 StarsNice premise good characterizations I m eager to find out about the liberation movement for the thought stealers, and how things progress after the ending of this book I wanted to find out of this world, and Bright Side itself from the perspective of someone biased against those imprisoned within the community.

This is overall a great book, but it s depressing mood can ruin your day The story held my interest, but can be considered of a drama than a sci fi book This book is very first person and the author truly does a great job at expressing the emotions felt during the tale, but I don t recommend this book to anyone looking for a fulfilling story.

This was a really good story.Tee Quillen was the perfect narrator.What can happen in a society where 1 3 of the population can read minds They get sent away to a town all their own I beautiful prison where no one escapes.They still try.I was given this book free for an honest review.

I enjoyed this book Thought thieves seem so real and the government putting them away even likely It was interesting to see Joe grow and learn which lead to an action packed ending Difficult to put this book down.

Liked the premise behind the story Got a bit bogged down with descriptions at times Wanted different reactions thoughts from the characters sometimes, but maybe I ve just been reading too many romance novels.

I m divided about this It s a really interesting subject, but it s extremely dark It takes a very pessimistic view of humanity and human nature that I m not sure I completely agree with Almost every character is bleak and miserable It s a very depressing book.

While the premise was good, I found the story to be too redundant at times because events and details were repeated over and over again.
