I read The Prediction by Darren Sugrue recently and really enjoyed it from start to finish.
It’s an easy read, really well written by Darren Sugrue and I was attached to my Kindle until I’d finished reading it.
The characters are believable and likeable, I was drawn in immediately.
Without giving too much away, we follow the story of a mathematical genius named Daniel who has developed a thesis where he can predict the date of a person’s death. His thesis is rejected by his professor and Daniel turns to a ‘normal’ life dumping his thesis or anything related to maths.
Years later the thesis is brought back to him by his professor who is going through personal struggles and Daniel then looks to ‘save’ the next person whose death he predicted many years ago.
Don’t worry if you’re not a maths genius like the lead in the book, it’s not so much about the math itself rather Daniel’s journey on whether or not he wants to be drawn back into his thesis, especially after it got rejected when it meant the most to him and his desire to save someone from a possible death should his thesis be correct.
The book twists and turns at the end (I absolutely did not see the twist coming) and I literally didn’t want to stop reading it until I’d got to the end of the book.
This is one of those books where you’ll start reading it and will completely lose track of time, a real page turner (or page swiper on the Kindle!), you’ll just want to keep reading to find out what happens next.
Overall, it’s a brilliant book and I’d thoroughly recommend it if you haven’t already read it.
I hadn’t heard of the author, Darren Sugrue, prior to reading this book but look forward to finding out more about him and reading more of his books!
Let me know in the comments below if you’ve read this book and what you thought (just be mindful of those who may not have read the book – we don’t want to spoil it for them!)
