About two or three chapters in I thought this was going to be one of the best thrillers I've ever read. But with all the shitty info dumping of The Argument the book became a rather infuriating read.

Awesome book but pretty gruesome. If your an atheist you will love this book as it takes emotions and faith down to it's primal core. At times the book can get slow but then you are ripped from your seat by another unthinkable anti human murder. I would not have predicted the events in this one. ( )

After finding Bakker's fantasy works rather long winded and dry, Neuropath begins at a refreshingly brisk pace. The scenes of horror portrayed by Bakker's neuropath are gruesome indeed, going that one step further than expected. The science (neurology and psychology) have certainly been well researched and are vital to the plot, however at times there's too much to digest, detracting from the tension that has been created. For most of the novel Neuropath adeptly juggles suspense and science, however the finale is too wordy and somewhat improbable. A simpler endgame would have been just as satisfying given that the book until then had been well constructed. A worthwhile read despite its downfalls. ( )

I found this one a little far fetched. Goodish story, and ok characters, but I wouldn't want to rush out and buy it. ( )

Too much philosophy about whether the mind is real or not. Nothing convincing and nothing to try and argue either way. ( )
