    If there is such a thing as Chick-Lit, what is the name for a book that is a guy-type of thing? Is it Dick-Lit? Male-Tales? XY-Chrome-Tomes? Definitely Dick-Lit. Well, whatever. The point is that this is a man book. It reads like a disaster book where you are seeing what diffe...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/04/12/... What a fascinating novel. And to think I almost passed this one up, but every now and then I like to step out of my comfort zone to read something ?outside my box?, and books like The Oracle Year make me ...

    Everybody knows that I'm a psychological thriller and horror genre junkie, but every now and then I like to mix it up with other genres, so I was excited to pick up The Oracle Year . The Oracle Year is written by the renowned Charles Soule?Marvel writer for She-Hulk, The Death of ...

    The Oracle Year by Charles Soule reminds me of a story told by a drunk frantically trying to hook up at closing time. Sure, everything sounds great on the surface?maybe this guy is the WBC boxing heavyweight champion of the world just hanging out at Applebee?s at 2A.M. on a Tuesday...

    ?And if he is not a fraud? What if he is, indeed, a messenger from God? What then?? Will Dando is an out of work muso, a bassist getting the occasional gig. He?s very good, but not ?New York good.? For some reason, this description of him stuck in my mind. He struggles to ...

    Sci-fi "thriller-lite" about a young man, Will, who wakes up one morning with 108 very specific predictions in his head, ranging from the ridiculous (on this date, this person will put pepper on their steak) to the catastrophic (on this date, this bridge will collapse). Quickly realizi...

    4.75/5stars I am BLOWN AWAY. I have so many questions, so many theories, and my head legit hurts from thinking about this book for too long. I am seriously in awe by this book. Like woww. I stand by that this totally could have been a manga/comic book but that just proves that Mr...

    4.5 stars. I was sent this book by Wunderkind PR in exchange for an honest review. YOU GUYS. I just finished this book and I am SHOOK. This is a stunning sci-fi similar to Dark Matter but with political relevance instead of romance! (Yes please). The first half of this book I w...

    4.5 rating for this sci-fi thriller that I couldn't seem to turn the pages fast enough. Will Dando receives 108 predictions one night while sleeping, with no idea where they came from. He woke up with the list in his head. And without fail, every single one comes true no matter wha...

    Eh. Not horrible, but at page 268 approximately, the book action went into ?unbelievable?. I once had an author at a book signing say that authors get ONE pass. One concept that the reader is expected to believe. As long as that concept meshes well with the world created and ne...

    *I received a review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review* Combining the pace of a thriller with the epic, dare I say ridiculous and far fetched plot of a comic book (in the best way possible), Soule keeps it all together with approachable characters. In comic book...

    I saw this audiobook on Hoopla and thought I?d try it since it was a recent BOTM pick. It starts with a really interesting premise, but slowed in the middle then veered into the ridiculous towards the end. The characters didn?t have much depth either. It was a light, entertaining b...

    4.5 Stars. Everyone wants to find out who The Oracle is. Will, a musician with nothing seemingly special about him, has 180 prophecies which he writes into a notebook. He enlists his most trusted friend and they build an anonymous website with help from a retired hacker and her girlfri...

    If it's done well, sometimes it's okay to leave a few questions unanswered and Soule did it very well. The "who" and the "why" were ultimately far less important than Will's journey. And, yes, I know that tells you fuck-all about the book itself, but you can read the synopsis and an...

    It?s seldom I read books fresh off the printing press as it were (it?s always either way in advance via Netgalley or considerably after the fact via library), which of course is a silly description for an audio book. But this looked like a lot of fun, so I downloaded it for my firs...

    Will Dando is an ordinary guy, just trying to make it in the big city. He's an okay songwriter and a pretty good bass player?best one in his hometown, maybe?but he's not, y'know, New York good (to use novelist Charles Soule's own memorable phrase). Will's biggest and most inspirati...

    Here was another Book if the Month selection that I was looking forward to reading. It had a unique, original concept (even if it was sort of ?sprung? on the reader) and came with a fair amount of hype. Pulling no punches, the plot was scattershot and some tendrils left witheri...

    Will Dando awoke one morning with 108 predictions for the future in his head. So, he does what any millenial would do: he starts selling them one at a time to the highest bidder on the Internet. Corporations, Wall Streeters, world leaders, people with lots of money. Anybody who could u...

    Based on what I have read in the past, my Goodreads feed recommended that I give The Oracle Year a shot. So when I came across its illusory cover in the local library, of course I had to check it out. Will Dando went to bed an unassuming Manhattan musician and woke up as the most po...

    Will Dando awoke one morning with 108 predictions for the future in his head. So, he does what any millenial would do: he starts selling them one at a time to the highest bidder on the Internet. Corporations, Wall Streeters, world leaders, people with lots of money. Anybody who could u...

    If there is such a thing as Chick-Lit, what is the name for a book that is a guy-type of thing? Is it Dick-Lit? Male-Tales? XY-Chrome-Tomes? Definitely Dick-Lit. Well, whatever. The point is that this is a man book. It reads like a disaster book where you are seeing what diffe...

    ? 2 / 5 ? This was my Book of the Month add on for April?and well, I?m pretty disappointed with it. I was expecting an action-packed, fast-paced, overall awesomeness-filled novel. And what did I get instead? A slow-paced novel filled with one-dimensional characters, and awk...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/04/12/... What a fascinating novel. And to think I almost passed this one up, but every now and then I like to step out of my comfort zone to read something ?outside my box?, and books like The Oracle Year make me ...

    Everybody knows that I'm a psychological thriller and horror genre junkie, but every now and then I like to mix it up with other genres, so I was excited to pick up The Oracle Year . The Oracle Year is written by the renowned Charles Soule?Marvel writer for She-Hulk, The Death of ...

    The Oracle Year by Charles Soule reminds me of a story told by a drunk frantically trying to hook up at closing time. Sure, everything sounds great on the surface?maybe this guy is the WBC boxing heavyweight champion of the world just hanging out at Applebee?s at 2A.M. on a Tuesday...

    ?And if he is not a fraud? What if he is, indeed, a messenger from God? What then?? Will Dando is an out of work muso, a bassist getting the occasional gig. He?s very good, but not ?New York good.? For some reason, this description of him stuck in my mind. He struggles to ...

    Sci-fi "thriller-lite" about a young man, Will, who wakes up one morning with 108 very specific predictions in his head, ranging from the ridiculous (on this date, this person will put pepper on their steak) to the catastrophic (on this date, this bridge will collapse). Quickly realizi...

    4.75/5stars I am BLOWN AWAY. I have so many questions, so many theories, and my head legit hurts from thinking about this book for too long. I am seriously in awe by this book. Like woww. I stand by that this totally could have been a manga/comic book but that just proves that Mr...

    4.5 stars. I was sent this book by Wunderkind PR in exchange for an honest review. YOU GUYS. I just finished this book and I am SHOOK. This is a stunning sci-fi similar to Dark Matter but with political relevance instead of romance! (Yes please). The first half of this book I w...

    4.5 rating for this sci-fi thriller that I couldn't seem to turn the pages fast enough. Will Dando receives 108 predictions one night while sleeping, with no idea where they came from. He woke up with the list in his head. And without fail, every single one comes true no matter wha...

    Eh. Not horrible, but at page 268 approximately, the book action went into ?unbelievable?. I once had an author at a book signing say that authors get ONE pass. One concept that the reader is expected to believe. As long as that concept meshes well with the world created and ne...

    Video book review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWOj9... A solid 3-star read. The premise of this book was so promising. Will Dando is a young man struggling to make ends meet in New York City. One day he wakes up from a dream that revealed 108 predictions that could change the w...

    I saw this audiobook on Hoopla and thought I?d try it since it was a recent BOTM pick. It starts with a really interesting premise, but slowed in the middle then veered into the ridiculous towards the end. The characters didn?t have much depth either. It was a light, entertaining b...

    4.5 Stars. Everyone wants to find out who The Oracle is. Will, a musician with nothing seemingly special about him, has 180 prophecies which he writes into a notebook. He enlists his most trusted friend and they build an anonymous website with help from a retired hacker and her girlfri...

    Here was another Book if the Month selection that I was looking forward to reading. It had a unique, original concept (even if it was sort of ?sprung? on the reader) and came with a fair amount of hype. Pulling no punches, the plot was scattershot and some tendrils left witheri...

    Will Dando awoke one morning with 108 predictions for the future in his head. So, he does what any millenial would do: he starts selling them one at a time to the highest bidder on the Internet. Corporations, Wall Streeters, world leaders, people with lots of money. Anybody who could u...

    Based on what I have read in the past, my Goodreads feed recommended that I give The Oracle Year a shot. So when I came across its illusory cover in the local library, of course I had to check it out. Will Dando went to bed an unassuming Manhattan musician and woke up as the most po...

    If there is such a thing as Chick-Lit, what is the name for a book that is a guy-type of thing? Is it Dick-Lit? Male-Tales? XY-Chrome-Tomes? Definitely Dick-Lit. Well, whatever. The point is that this is a man book. It reads like a disaster book where you are seeing what diffe...

    ? 2 / 5 ? This was my Book of the Month add on for April?and well, I?m pretty disappointed with it. I was expecting an action-packed, fast-paced, overall awesomeness-filled novel. And what did I get instead? A slow-paced novel filled with one-dimensional characters, and awk...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/04/12/... What a fascinating novel. And to think I almost passed this one up, but every now and then I like to step out of my comfort zone to read something ?outside my box?, and books like The Oracle Year make me ...

    Everybody knows that I'm a psychological thriller and horror genre junkie, but every now and then I like to mix it up with other genres, so I was excited to pick up The Oracle Year . The Oracle Year is written by the renowned Charles Soule?Marvel writer for She-Hulk, The Death of ...

    The Oracle Year by Charles Soule reminds me of a story told by a drunk frantically trying to hook up at closing time. Sure, everything sounds great on the surface?maybe this guy is the WBC boxing heavyweight champion of the world just hanging out at Applebee?s at 2A.M. on a Tuesday...
