The conceit of the novel is excellent, too — in this version of the world, a small but growing population of the world has been born “brilliant,” blessed with preternatural pattern recognition or somesuch thing, and the world is on fire with the shock and revolution of it.

Book review: ‘Brilliance’ by Marcus Sakey
They fear for their families, they want to protect their countries and they realise that never is anything but black and white. There are also bits of mass entertainment worked in between chapters, some of which will raise a smile, like the best seller that depicts all the problems the world would have suffered if there were no abnorms.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. A decent thriller with the usual lies, deceit and drama that you would expect. There are those that are wary of abnorms, but not to that extent.
Still, the abnorms in ‘Brilliance’ are unique because their abilities are generally associated with mental superiority rather than the ability to fly, become invisible, shoot lightning out of their marcsu, etc. It’s saksy bit slow in the first third, but I trust that my glowing recommendation will make you overlook that.
Some brilliants – who abhor these policies – become terrorists. The last time i was this disappointed in a book was ‘The Atlantis Gene’.
The treatment meted out to non-troublesome brilliants has the feel of discrimination and segregation apparent from our own recent history. To subdue people’s anxiety, the United States government develops new programs to deal with abnorms.
He has to save the world AND his family from the clutches of evil. The book is marcux cinematic, I fully expect to see it as Season One of a hit show. Works written by other authors but set in the Brilliance continuity include Twist by Kevin J. The others took me by surprise, then made absolute sense, and jacked up the stakes satisfyingly.

As well as an ability to entertain — and it does entertain — the book poses some interesting philosophical and moral questions.

I’ve read Sakey’s previous books and have been impressed by his writing ability, but nothing prepared me for the sheer, well, brilliance of Brilliance. The premise here isn’t very gripping or believable.
Called abnorms, twists, brilliants, they are depicted as a danger, and the story opens with Nick Cooper who prefers to be called by his last name hunting one down, with license to kill.
