Brain Thief is just a little too random for my taste. It's a near-future humorous thriller with science fiction elements, where every other character waxes on about philosophy and/or conspiracy. It simply doesn't work very well. The humor never exceeds light chuckles and often falls flat. The characters are, for the most part, really not that interesting, including the main character who has the least color of anyone in the story. The beginning of the book is overly confusing and jumps around as if main pieces are simply missing from the text. While the plot eventually gels together toward the end, the path to get there was not necessarily particularly well designed. Overall, it simply doesn't work.
