Publisher's Summary

Two thousand years in the future. The world is a wasteland, but the women are still gorgeous.

Jack Bowman is out of luck and out of money. That is, until he gets an offer to be a part of an experiment for a major scientific research company. All he has to do is get cryogenically frozen for a few years and he'll be rich. What could go wrong?

Quite a bit, as it turns out.

When Jack's pod splits open and he's met by two beautiful women, he's introduced to a very different world from the one he left behind. There are warring tribes, mutated animals, actual monsters, and even ogres. With so many threats, how can anyone hope to survive?

Lucky for Jack, being frozen was only half the experiment. The other part is swimming around his bloodstream, and it's turning him into something more than human.

Warning: This story contains adult situations, coarse language, and other fun things. Listen at your own risk.

One of the best dystopian books I've ever read

This was a creative and fun ride. I've always been a huge dystopian fan, but most stories tend to blend together or feel the same. Not this one. It's like Fallout, but with a better story and a more interesting world. The lead character is an ex-marine, so I instantly related, but he also has a good heart and wants to do right by his friends. When he wakes up in the future, he has to navigate a completely foreign (yet still familiar) world. It's almost like stepping into a twisted fantasy world in many ways. He has to figure out what happened to the planet while he was asleep, all while trying to survive and keep his new friends alive. I can't recommend this one enough. The sequel just released so I hope the audio for it comes out soon!

pleasantly suprised

What I thought of the narrator and voices --> The narrator has an excellent voice for males. The accent he used for the main character really worked well and felt like a great fit. Some of the other characters were done well too. The downside is the female voices are not that great. I would expect it to be difficult for a male with a normal deep voice to pull off a feminine voice. This is no knock against the narrator's talent. It is just hard to do. The main character voice quality easily made up for the female shortcomings.

Sex scenes--> Brief and did not get into a ton of detail. I thought it hit the right balance and did not overdo anything. They did not seem forced or detract from the story.

The story--> I thought the story was good. The main character is not the typical naive idiot stumbling around trying to figure everything out and make any normal male facepalm. Instead, the main character comes off as more believable, especially as ex-military. I was in the army infantry, and I know people with similar personalities so it was easy to identify.

Why I gave the book 5 stars--> Is this one of the best books I've read or listen to? No. However, it is solid and engaging. When books have parts that annoy me, I'll increase the speed. I think I only used the speed up once and it was for less than a minute. I think it is worth the credit just to hear the main characters sarcastic comments.

Written by a 12 year old

This was a bad book. Simplistic and way too childish for an adult book. Main character is a joke with no development and ex machina abounds.

Future Bored

The premise and set-up are classic sci-fi: contemporary everyman volunteers for a sketchy scientific venture involving cryogenic stasis. Ge then wakes up in the future and has to use what skills he developed in the past and whatever luck he has to survive, shenanigans ensue that carry him through the plot.

Concept is great, characters are interesting and show signs of being well crafted. Jack’s meta-awareness is refreshing, and the sisters Mira and Belle, the two women that pull him from the aforementioned cryogenic stasis, show signs of being rugged survivors with just the right coating of jadedness to get by in a waster’s life without being straw nihilists.

And here’s the BUTT.

I’m not familiar with Alexander Cendese’s work, but from the uncomfortable five chapter slog I endured I don’t think I want to be. I enjoyed his range in dialogue but his narration is flat and rushed, impatient and disinterested, it could be the result of the direction but it pulled me way away from the experience.

Fun, Hard Luck Hankish style.

Where to start? Think broke guy ending up in a time capsule that doesn't get popped open for two millennia and you've got a good grip on this one. The world has gone to shit. Destroyed by a designer virus, several thousand years sees humanity hanging on by its nails and sheer determination in a world reduced to a slivered shadow of its former self.

Enter Jack. Spend a few months in a tube contributing to science, they said. Worth $500k they said. Except the scientists didn't live long enough to uncork him. Buried under the sands of time, he awakes to a world gone mad. Thanks to the experiment, he's just the man to see it back on track.

The tone reminds me a bit of Hard Luck Hank. Light science long on action, we're taken along a trail filled with monsters, genetic aberrations, psychos, and good people just trying to survive. Score one for the little guy, this story hits all the right spots. This was an audio 'read' for me. The narrator brings a worthy performance that adds nicely to the tale. Waiting for book two.

It's a good listen to pass the time.

Not a great story, but a good time waster. Nothing too descriptive for the sex scenes.

Convenient and forgettable Mary Sue MC

The entire story is convenient AF, nothing feels earned, the love interests arnt developed, the premise is wishy washy, as it never fully commits to what it says and some of the ramifications of being a person from the past are ignored entirely except for the good parts.

And when uou finally introduce some somewhat interesting villians you kill them off the bat out of fear that it might detract from how 'awesome' the mc is...

id recommend you skip this one if you want to save some time.
