The Blurb:

The victim of an unspeakable crime, an infant rises to become a new type of superhero. Unlike any that have come before him, he is not a fanciful creation of animators, he is real.
So begins the saga of Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in human history. But where did his extraordinary intelligence come from?
As agents of corporate greed vie with rabid anti-Western radicals to destroy him, an obsessive government leader launches a bizarre covert mission to exploit his intellect. Yet Austin’s greatest fear is not of this world.
Aided by two exceptional women, one of whom will become his unlikely lover, Austin struggles against abandonment and betrayal. But the forces that oppose him are more powerful than even he can understand.
Miracle Man is the winner of a Best Thriller national award, and was named by Amazon as ONE OF THE TOP 100 NOVELS OF 2015, a TOP 10 BEST SELLING THRILLER and a TOP 10 NEW YORK TIMES/AMAZON BEST SELLER

My Review:

This is yet another book that i have loved from the first page!  I was hooked immediately and read it in two sittings.
I loved that we started at the very start of Bobby’s life, seeing what he had to deal with as a child, both the good and terrible – what that boy went through, and to remember absolutely all of it, was heartbreaking.  I think that we knew all of this throughout the book helped with the character development, especially as there were times when I wanted to smack him upside the head for being an idjit!
There were some really sad moments in the books and the author was wonderful at writing them in a way that didn’t linger, but didn’t rush past them either.
If I had to moan about one thing, it  would be the timeline – as the book basically covers the life of one person from the age of about 4 until just after 40, there is a lot to cover (especially a guy who wins 11 Nobel Prizes!) but there were times that I felt that it jarred just a little bit, but not enough to make me hate the book.
I thought I saw a twist coming and although I almost did, it wasn’t like I assumed it was and that was such a breath of fresh air!
Having said that .. the ending reveals quite a cliffhangery twist which suited the book really well and one that I *think* I possibly, maybe worked out just before it was revealed … I think ..!!
The great thing about this one and the fact that i am reviewing this book tomorrow is that I get to read the second book immediately .. and I have already started and am intrigued to see where it goes!
Great book – I hope book 2 follows in its footsteps! A great 4 Stars.
