Mind-storm is a fast paced future world. The world is well developed, and you can really get a sense of what it would be like to live there. The story is told in a multi-person narrative, which makes it more difficult to really connect with the characters. I think when authors write this way, they think they are making a more suspenseful and complete story line, and while some of that is true, I never connect as well with the characters. One other problem I had with this book is that most people are disposable. There was one part that I thought illustrates this point, one of the characters walks into a room and kills 15 people in 3 seconds. The majority of these people are purely innocent bystanders who have no ability to fight back. It just leaves me feeling like what is the point in fighting for the future of humanity if we are going to kill them with no thoughts about them, and sometimes just to send a message. And these are the good guys. The book overall, is a very good at world building and overall, a good read.
So, I know several people who loved this book but it was definitely just okay for me. If you are looking for a light read, I would have to recommend Sarah Addison Allen's books instead.
