Mind Trap is an action packed and humorous sci-fi thriller about a young boy named Rudy and his mentor, Mr. Kloom. Rudy is a boy with a special gift. The only problem is -he doesn’t know how to control it. There are other’s that share the same gift and aren’t as innocent as he is. They are greedy and will stop at nothing to destroy each other in order to harness more power for themselves. Mr. Kloom serves as mentor and protector, a man with the same gift who drifts through life as a toilet paper salesman and pill popping drunk. Mr. Kloom adds to the hilarity of the story just when you’d imagine there’d be no room for laughter. I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait for a sequel. It’s an impressive first novel that was imagined and written over the course of one summer. Here’s hoping J.R. Brule has many more boring summers to bring us a series of adventures for Rudy and Mr. Kloom. I am suggesting that you pick this up if you like science fiction and need something fun to read this summer.
