In the Company of Mind

Lance Blackstone's father has used his son as a guinea pig in illegal medical experiments and punishes Lance when the experiments go wrong. His mother knows what's going on, but does nothing to stop it. And Lance loses chunks of time. Days or even weeks sometimes pass while he sleeps. He finds himself in strange places with no memory of how he got there. Odd objects show up in his room and he has no idea where they come from. Total strangers treat him like a close friend. Voices argue inside his head. And then one of the voices speaks directly to him, a voice that claims to belong to an artificial intelligence.

    No B.S. reviews. I'll never soft-pedal bad writing or inept narration.

    "I quit at the rape scene in chapter two!"

    I don't care what this book is about—I don't think the writing is particularly good, and the narration is far from great.
    However, I'm not going to waste another minute listening to this trash. I'm personally offended by the rape scene in chapter two, and I don't care who knows it.

    "Piss Poor"

    Couldn't get past the first excessively long chapter... The writing is absolutely horrible.... I could write a better product, and I'm a reader, not a writer... Save your money or credit... This is a horrendous audio book, and I'm now off to scrub my mind w/ the proverbial/metaphorical brillo pad... I only wish I could give it less than 1* - if ever a book deserved 0* this is the one...
