    Story
    "I LISTENED IN ONE SITTING & REALLY LIKED IT!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Re-Wired to be better than the print version?

    I think audio is always best!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Re-Wired?

    When we find out how delusional Brad really is...I never suspected till all the pieces got put into place...Sure I knew he was a weirdo...but really?? lol


    What does Jack Nolan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He told the story really well....would I say his narration was flawless? No, but he is a good story teller...and I was completely interested the whole way through!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This would be a really cool little movie....people would be shocked with the little twist-a-roo in this one!


    Any additional comments?

    ** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

    I really liked this story, and listened all at once....its not very long, but I was completely engaged all the way through...and the ending wasn't as complex as I would of liked it to be, but I was ok with it...Basically we have Brad who is kinda a geeky weirdo, but brilliant and insecure about himself...comes with the territory of budding geniuses...as Brad states very sad, but cleverly, that the women that would not date him now, would fall all over him in his 40s...Its kind of a shame, because he did have a lot to offer...He created this magnificent android and names her Trisha....she is beautiful and smart, and has a thirst for knowledge and can feel...she loves Brad, but he gets greedy and in the end really pays an ultimate price...just really shows you how ID and EGO really can destroy someone...

    Good story, very interesting, and solid narration...I recommend!

    Story
    "Interesting take on an old concept"

    What an odd book. I literally just finished this and I'm not entirely sure how I felt about it. It had a definite 'gollum' type story to it (not LOTR but the legend of clay people brought to life). I'm not sure if it's a re-telling or not.

    I think part of the reason I can't decide how I feel about the actual story is because of the narration. It felt like the narrator was reading the sentences for the first time, causing odd breaks where there shouldn't be, statements read as questions and vice versa. There was a feeling that the narrator was constantly distracted.

    I'm disappointed at the lack of quality and that audible would allow such a poorly produced title on their site. I feel like if someone had taken the time to listen to a five minute sample shortly after the narrator began the project, they could've easily been coached to do a much better job- and I feel like that would make the story much more engaging.

    I was provided with a free copy of this audio book by the author, publisher or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Any additional comments?

    The author has created a new world in Re-Wired that is totally different and believable. This is a world that we could find ourselves living in if the brilliant minds of today become focused on turning robots into undetectable androids. If you read the news, we are already in this situation.

    "Excellent book!"

    This is my second book by Greg Dragon and I can say without a doubt I'm definitely a fan of his work! My first book was Single Wired Female which is actually book 2 of Re-wired. Both books are fine as a stand alone book. I love a good artificial intelligence story! This one is kind of a sad love story. Great book and I highly recommend it!

    Story
    "Any potential is marred by clumsy narration"
    What did you love best about Re-Wired?

    My only compliant is that the "twist" is alluded to a bit too strongly initially, and thus takes away a lot of potential suspense.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tricia. She is inquisitive and naive, yet still somehow remains grounded in a way that I can do nothing but admire


    What three words best describe Jack Nolan’s voice?

    robotic, artificial, and dry. Nolan's cadence changes radically throughout the book, seemingly with no rhyme or reason. Pauses and even a few missing words are littered awkwardly throughout the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen in one sitting due to the short length. However. the narrator's quirks are jarring and abrasive, pulling me from the story often.

    Story
    "Compelling story dragged down by poor narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would recommend the ebook to a friend. I like sci-fi, and I was interested in listening to this relatively short novel about a boy who builds an android that takes on a life and personality of its own. I thought the story was going to be very straightforward by how it started out, but it surprised me in a positive way with a twisting and interesting story line that blurred the lines of madness and reality. And what I thought were convenient and negligent jumps and blank spaces in the story turned out to be essential to telling the story. I do wish certain plot points or characters would have been described better or more thoroughly (particularly the professor and Constance), I still found the story compelling and enjoyable. It reminded me a bit of Flowers for Algernon.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jack Nolan’s performances?

    Absolutely not. The narrator took a great story and made it terrible. This book was read with zero emotion. I felt like the narrator was trying to speed through the text as quickly as possible, most of the time sounding like a robot himself. There was one scene in particular, where a professor jumps to his death that was read with such impassiveness that it could have been mistaken for a guy walking into a room and eating a sandwich. I actually had to re-wind to make sure I heard it correctly. And it’s an important scene in the context of the story! Having a better narrator who doesn't stumble over words would bring this interesting story to life and showcase it for the interesting story that it actually is.


    Do you think Re-Wired needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. The story was contained within the book with a satisfying conclusion.

    "ReWired"

    This is a new twist on an old story.Boy builds android to be like a real woman.This is illegal.Boy wants her to be more real,so he signs on for a drug trial that ends up making him more alluring to real women.He gets a real girlfriend ,or so he thinks.This story is so twisted I'm not really sure what was supposed to be 'real'.
    The narrator,Jack Nolan was awful.To me he sounded like a computer reading the book.His lady android actually sounds more real.
    I was given this book for free for an honest review.

    "You better pay attention!"
    If you could sum up Re-Wired in three words, what would they be?

    Spooky, imaginative, misleading


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Re-Wired?

    When Tricia powers herself on the first time.


    What three words best describe Jack Nolan’s performance?

    Infantile, poor, and unstudied.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the professor jumped from the patrol car to his death.


    Any additional comments?

    This book took me on a ride I wasn't expecting. I enjoyed it, but the reader could have been better. Jack Nolan started out reading like he was reading to a bunch of kindergarten students.... I believe it would have been better if he had read the book through, then returned and read it for the audience. I think he could have had better knowledge of the book before sharing it.
    I truly enjoyed the story, and although it didn't go the way I expected, I was still happy with the ending.

    "An interesting Sci-Fi tale with great narration"

    Title: RE-WIRED

    Author: Greg Dragon

    Type of Book: Audiobook - Unabridged

    Narrator: Jack Nolan

    Length: 3 hours and 44 minutes

    Genre: Science Fiction

    Release Date: July 16, 2015

    Publisher: Greg Dragon

    Rating: 4 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Set in Seattle sometime in the not-too-distant future. There are flying cars as well as regular cars, robots and androids have become commonplace and marijuana is legal. But some things haven't changed ... such as the desires and expectations of family.

    Brad's family is no exception. His has always been a medical family and Brad has been groomed since childhood to become a doctor. What Brad's parents don't know is that he has no intention of following the life-path they have designed for him.

    Attending college, he is taking all the requisite medical classes, but Brad's favorites class is an elective - Robotics. When each member of the class is given a basic android kit and told that they are each to create their own android, Brad is thrilled. Being assigned to create his own android is his dream come true. He has many ideas and innovations that he is eager to try. He wants to create an android that is indistinguishable from humans and one that is self-aware and who can think for herself.

    The project becomes an obsession and he desperately wants his android (whom he named Trisha) to have human looking (and feeling) skin. But that type of upgrade is expensive and Brad needs to figure out a way to get the money he needs.

    His only option is to look for the "skin" in the criminal underworld. It is there that he is offered a deal seems too good to be true.

    Remember the old adage that states "If something seems to good to be true, it probably is." But, will this be true for Brad? Or will he and his android prove to be the exception?

    This book grabbed my interest right from the start. The idea of creating self-aware androids is not a new idea. In fact, it is a plot line in many movies and books. Because of this I expected a predictable storyline, but thankfully my suspicions were completely unfounded.

    This audiobook takes the listener on a roller coaster ride with lots of twists, turns, dips and even some blind corners.

    The narrator, Jack Nolan's voice is the perfect blend of raw and sophisticated. He is easily understood which is essential to a positive listening experience. He never rushes the story and his pacing is 'spot-on'. I rate the narration as 5 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    The story was interesting and the many twists mean that the listeners attention never wavers. I enjoyed this audiobook and I look forward to reading other titles by Greg Dragon. Overall I rate this audiobook as 4 out of 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    * I received a free copy of this audiobook through AudioBookBlast dot com in exchange for an honest review.
