1.) August 28, 2012: COURTNEY READS A LOT
…This book kept up a fast pace, and I was never bored. The suspense and action of the book really peaked my interest and kept me reading. There were so many mysteries to solve, and I was eager to have my questions answered.…
2.) August 29, 2012: FOREVER LITERARY
…DiSemblance is a solid story with plenty of action and excitement. Shanae Branham is a budding author to watch, and it will be intriguing to see where she goes next!
3.) September 1, 2012: NICKI J. MARKUS
…I’m glad I did as I found this a well-written and engaging tale that kept me turning the pages so fast that I read the book in a single session. The story is interesting and catchy and the characters, particularly Jason and Bruce, come across well.
4.) September 4, 2012: Reading to Penguins
…If you like the Matrix, or things of that genre, you’ll enjoy this book. It has that ongoing theme of uncertainty, where neither the characters nor the reader know what’s real. The plot is highly engaging and well paced. The murder investigation blends well with the science fiction aspects to create a clever resolution.
5.) September 8, 2012: TALES OF A BOOK ADDICT
…So what does all this rambling have to do with my thoughts on this book? I liked it. A lot, actually. I found it fast paced and engrossing. I would start reading and realize that I had flown through 50 pages before I realized it. I’m definitely glad that Ms. Branham stumbled across my blog and sent me her pitch, I would never have found this book otherwise. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good read. It’s not just for the young adult crowd or the science fiction crowd. It’s definitely a book that will appeal to a wide variety of readers and I highly recommend it.
6.) September 10, 2012: A Bookish Co-Op
…To say we enjoyed this book would fall short of the truth. We freaking loved it and that’s saying something when BOTH of us like it. We can count the number of books we’ve both read on a three-fingered hand (not including the Harry Potter series, that’s just a given). Our reading tastes are just that different. So finding a book that appeals to both of us is a true gem.
7.) Sunday, September 16, 2012: Helene’s World of Books
…When I first read the synopsis I liked it. I don’t read many thrillers. I hate gruesome murders and all, so I mostly avoid this genre. But this book sounded interesting and I ended up loving it. There are murders, but they’re not gruesome in the way of much blood and lost limbs. There’s a lot of tension and I just couldn’t put it down. The first 50 pages I read on the train, the other 319 pages I read in one sitting. I just couldn’t put it down.
8.) Wednesday, September 19, 2012: Realms of an Open Mind
There is no denying the unbelievable pace this novel sets for itself. Reader’s are taken right to the middle of the action, which includes the whole murder/mystery aspect I’ve mentioned, leaving you searching to the next pages for more information. Who’s the killer? What does it have to do with Tanner’s invention? What the heck is going on?!?…
9.) Friday, September 23, 2012: Simple Books
I was super excited when the author asked me to review the book! I saw a lot of good reviews on Goodreads and I really liked the book!…
10.) Monday, September 24, 2012: Confessions of an Inner Aspen
…But it did have an exciting plot and was fun to read. It was suspenseful, the “techno-thriller” element was definitely there, and Branham painted a clear picture in my mind, and I appreciate it when I can see what is happening as I’m reading….
11.) Tuesday, September 25, 2012: Amy’s Book World
Wow. This is a book that gets your brain a working. It’s who done it cat and mouse story that takes you from reality into an alternate world. The author did a great job with this story. It is unique and keeps the reader engrossed from beginning to end. The story is well written and quite a page turner….
12.) Tuesday, September 25, 2012: Lucidity
I’m not an advent science fiction reader, but suspense thriller is one of my absolute favorite genres. As introduction to either of these genres “Dissemblance” is an excellent addition. The novel is well written….
13.) Thursday, November 1, 2012: Read,Breathe,Read
…The plot was brilliant. Ever once in a while, we would stop and wonder how Shanae was able to come up with such a thing—just the creation of the hologram machine was a quite feat in itself.
14.) Sunday, November 25, 2012: The Y.A. Bookworm Blogger
…DiSemblance was a very different kind of read for me- I haven’t really read anything quite like it before (and I mean that in the best possible way)! It’s almost as if the author took a futuristic-thriller movie and put it into words- making it a great choice for both the guys and the gals! …What was my favorite part about DiSemblance? Definitely the fast pace! Each chapter is fairly short and moves along quickly- adding a unique action element to the entire book that makes it hard to stop reading. There’s not one dull moment, because there’s always something going on !
