Robert Baxter once reveled in the intoxicating delights of Atopia - the man-made island where humans lose themselves in a world of boundless virtual realities. Now, Bob has returned to immerse himself in this mind-altering, consciousness-sharing refuge from the eroding Earth.
But something is very wrong. Bob feels a tidal wave of doom cresting above the pleasure dome that is Atopia. As alternate universes perish, the salvation of all he loves - and all that exists - rests with Bob alone. To save the future, he must journey to the farthest edge of the past, where existence itself began and Atopia's deepest secrets may lie. Yet even the knowledge Bob ultimately gains may not be a match for an enemy as powerful as a god, and as all-consuming as death...
This final conclusion of the Atopia series sees Robert Baxter existing and crossing between multiverses while trying to stop an evil that is destroying entire universes. The scope here is obviously quite large, covering universes and time. Bob works to solve the mystery of "the destroyer" and save the Atopia he once knew. There is a lot of time and universe jumping, lots of philosophical wanderings, and many questions about good vs. evil, humanity vs artificial, etc. The story was quite entertaining and the plot kept on a good pace. On the negative side, often times things were a bit confusing and not well explained, and the author decided to take a very anti-Christian stance throughout the book which probably wasn't necessary. For these reasons, I give it a 3.5. For the audiobook, the narrator did a super job without any missteps.
This series is amazing! Some people complained it got too philosophical but I think it's fantastic! And Luke Daniels' performance is exceptional as always!! Love love love!
This book perfectly sums up the trilogy of The Utopia Chronicles! I enjoyed every second of it. I recommend it for anyone and everyone.
Very different from the first two books in the series. It does an excellent job of towing everything together. It was confusing but stick it out and get to the end. Definitely worth the read.
I enjoyed the first 2 books for n this series quite a bit, but the last one becomes almost an exercise in philosophy. Not enough plot to really keep me interested.
shyte story overall. I will be returning this series. not worth all the trouble I had getting the second book to play. and the 3rd is so boring I could not stay focused.
This was not as action packed or as suspenseful as the two previous books. It took sometime to really follow this last story. Once the story gets going it turns into a philosophical masterpiece that invites us all to love and accept all of who we are.
