The Austin Paradox Reviews

THE AUSTIN PARADOX REVIEWS

 

“With far too many science fiction thrillers paying superficial homage to originality, it’s rare to find a writer who manifests diversity in thought and execution, while avoiding the pitfalls of overt imitation.  Bringing a unique and compelling voice to the genre, Leibowitz set himself apart with his debut novel, Miracle Man, and The Austin Paradox now kicks his series into overdrive. With plotting that is fast-paced, elegant and compelling, The Austin Paradox is a shrewd, expansive and propulsive story that encompasses all the requisites of great science fiction.  Detail is Leibowitz’ forte.  It was clearly evident in Miracle Man and with backstories firmly established, it’s again the bedrock of Leibowitz’ narrative as he questions the notions of heroism and good vs. evil whilst painting a picture of just how “real” people with all their foibles might deal with being gifted extraordinary abilities.  It isn’t an easy genre for authors to distinguish themselves in and competition remains fierce,but Leibowitz instinctively understands the devices of his chosen genre and what it takes to stand out.  With the quality and depth of his writing, he continues to break new ground.

Delivering another superb novel, Leibowitz has done his many fans proud with a truly exceptional thriller.  The Austin Paradox is recommended without reservation and is an absolute must-read.”  …  Book Viral

 

“Enthusiasts of William R. Leibowitz’s thriller Miracle Man will delight in the return of Dr. Robert James Austin, who lost his   genius- level intellect in a lab explosion and now  struggles to regain his abilities.

Newcomers needn’t have read Miracle Man (although, they will want to) in order to quickly get up to speed here because a well-written prologue reveals the background of Dr. Austin.  Readers will find the thriller elements tempered with family interactions, introspective and spiritual insights, and flashes of scientific brilliance.

Connections between small events and larger consequences make for vivid, engrossing reading that doesn’t sacrifice personal relationships for the higher cause of escalating a thriller’s tense atmosphere. This is an added plus to a story that grabs from the start and is just as hard to put down as a Robin Cook saga; perhaps more so, because the family atmosphere and characters in The Austin Paradox are exceptionally well-done.

It’s hard to capture the full impact on the reader of the combination of a medical thriller paired with government and terrorist forces, and interwoven with international intrigue; all wound into one genius’ life and times. The Austin Paradox invites readers into a believable, tense world in which one man can make a difference. The result engages readers on many levels, from political to psychological to spiritual arenas, and is highly recommended for fans of medical and international espionage thrillers.”  …  Diane Donovan/The Midwest Book Review

 

“From the very first page of “The Austin Paradox”, author William R. Leibowitz captured my attention.  Leibowitz provides readers with well-developed characters and subplots that will scare even the most unshakable personalities.  But make no mistake– you will be kept on the edge of your seat right from the beginning.    The author does a great job of keeping the suspense and action going throughout the book and I recommend this compelling read to all who enjoy intense medical/psychological thrillers who might ask, “Could this really happen?”    …  Carol Hoyer for Reader Views

 

“Leibowitz spins a thriller that simply explodes with angst and a plot that sizzles.  Absolutely spellbinding, Leibowitz is our new Grisham/King with a twist and if you read no other crime novel this summer, read this one!!   It BURNZZZZZ!!”    …Ava for the bookshelf/champagneliving

 

 

ANOTHER GREAT BOOK FROM WILLIAM LEIBOWITZ      FIVE STARS

Another great book from William Leibowitz.  He does a great job of informing Miracle Man as there are things that I had forgotten.  The premise of the book, the virus, the cure, all lend truth to the fact that these things probably actually happen. Although there may not be a real Austin, there must be some out there that have some of the capacity he has.  The book was easy reading, held my attention and the intrigue was compelling.   Harleybabe/Amazon

 

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT       FIVE STARS

I loved this author’s first offering Miracle Man–it’s a must read and i have been looking forward to this sequel.  I am happy to report that there was absolutely no letdown as I devoured The Austin Paradox in a few days–possibly even better than the first book which set quite a high bar to surpass.  I fully expect this series to hit the big screen someday (or maybe a great Netflix series binge)– the main character is amazing and the story lines are highly intelligently written.  Absolutely brilliant!  Highly recommended.   Pete Bain/Amazon

 

SECOND GREAT BOOK FROM WILLIAM R. LEIBOWITZ       FIVE STARS

Another great book, well done, great research!  Terrific characters, believable story line, you will not be bored.  Can’t wait for the next book, hope it will not be as long a wait. Only complaint is,it ended too soon.  Thank you William Leibowitz!    J. King/Amazon

EXCELLENT SEQUEL      FIVE STARS

Loved Miracle Man and was so excited for the sequel that I pre-ordered it.  Medical thrillers and suspense I only read on occasion, but these stories rock!!  Looking forward to the next as the Austin family saga continues with Bobby and Christina’s daughter.  I highly recommend this book regardless of your typical genre.   Jill Kish/Amazon

GREAT, THOUGHT PROVOKING    FIVE STARS

Gives the reader much to think about and consider.  Author has done a lot of research to make a believable story.   Jack E. Haslup/Amazon

WORTH THE WAIT     FIVE STARS

Was wondering if this would ever come out and one day; two years after reading the first, there it was.  Thank you for another great book.  Looking forward to the continued series.   Amazon

BRILLIANT AGAIN!     FIVE STARS

I enjoyed the first release in this series immensely but enjoyed this release even more.  For me the characters are now well established and so this brings a degree of familiarity which allows the plot to take precedence.  The one thing I especially like about Mr. Leibowitz’ writing and author style is his attention to detail.  He doesn’t skimp on it but neither does it become laborious as the momentum continues to pick up.  I thought the plot to The Austin Paradox was very good and I loved the ending. ...D Brent/Amazon

THE PERFECT SEGUE AFTER MIRACLE MAN     FIVE STARS

The concept that one person with super intelligence can solve many of the world’s issues by attacking them in ways never before conceived IS the author’s genius.  Leibowitz makes every scientific breakthrough shocking and totally believable.  Although The Austin Paradox is a sequel to Miracle Man, it can be read as a standalone with total understanding of the plot.  Both of these books are a must read.  …T Cona/Amazon

REALLY ENJOYED THIS ONE TOO    FIVE STARS

The sequel did not fail.  Really enjoyed this one too, good quick read.  I really enjoyed the “sub-plots”.   ….Rosacea Victim/Amazon

RE-READ MIRACLE MAN TO REFRESH MY MEMORY AND THEN ORDERED …..   FIVE STARS

Re-read Miracle Man to refresh my memory and then ordered The Austin Paradox.  OMG… I didn’t want it to end.  There MUST be a book #3.  I anxiously await it!!!   ….Patricia Gerrard/Amazon

ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT IT WAS FANTASTIC FROM BEGINNING TO END     FIVE STARS

All I can say is that is was fantastic from beginning to end.  It held my attention from the first page and I look forward to more from this author! …Edward J. Pokay/Amazon

THE AUTHOR HAS THE UNIQUE TALENT OF MELDING SPOT ON SCIENCE WITH PERFECT PLOT AND CHARACTERS TO SUPPORT THE STORY       FIVE STARS

5 Stars all the way.  Couldn’t wait for this after reading Miracle Man.  The author has the unique talent of melding spot on Science with perfect plot and characters to support the story. If it turns out there are 30 books in this series all of them will be in my library.  Hope Hollywood pays attention and there is a film at some point.  …Joseph P Stratton/Amazon

ESPECIALLY LOVE THE CHARACTERS DEVELOPED THROUGHOUT BOTH MIRACLE MAN AND NOW …..     FIVE STARS

This book is riveting.  The research the Author put into his content made the book even more appealing.  Especially love the characters developed through both Miracle Man and now the sequel, The Austin Paradox.  I could definitely see both books as movie material.  Well worth your read!   …..Ann Gonzales/Amazon

I LOVED THE MIRACLE MAN     FIVE STARS

I loved the Miracle Man, and its sequel, The Austin Paradox.  They are both great suspense/thriller novels, with a protagonist that always surprised me.  I hope there is a 3rd novel in the works!    …Gretchen/Amazon

GREAT BOOK.  EXCITING AND PAGE TURNING     FIVE STARS

Great Book.  Exciting and page turning.  I couldn’t put it down.  It was so great to have Bobby back for another adventure into science.  It is a MUST read.  …unhappy customer/Amazon
