Publisher's Summary

A theme park attracting 65,000 visitors daily, Utopia is a world on the cutting edge of technology, complete with robots and futuristic holograms. But when ominous mishaps begin to disrupt the once-flawless technology, Dr. Andrew Warne, the brilliant computer engineer who designed much of the park's robotics, is summoned to set things right. On the day he arrives, Utopia is rocked by something far more sinister. A group of criminals has infiltrated Utopia's computerized infrastructure and gotten control of all its attractions and systems. Their threat: that if their demands aren't met, every man, woman, and child will become a target. Now Warne must try to save the lives of thousands of innocent people, and among those unsuspecting crowds is his only daughter.

Utopia (unabridged)

I really enjoyed this book. I like reading thrilling books but several lead to the supernatural, which I don't care much for. If you have liked amusement parks as a kid or if you are still a kid at heart you will love this thriller. Not only does it make you feel like you are really there it makes you wish there really was a park like this one until things go bad. At first I thought it was going to be like the old movie "West World" but it is even better. You have to get the unabridged version! I haven't heard the abridged version but it is well worth the hours to listen to the book. I wished it would never end. So take a seat, hold on, as you venture into a new world at "Utopia"!

SLOW!!!!!

Slow to start, slow in the middle, and slow to the end. I kept thinking at some point this has to get less dry, and uninteresting. Quite frankly, it NEVER captured my full attention once. I kept finding I had to rewind because, I'd be listening cleaning the kitchen as usual, and not listening to a word the narrator was saying, because I just didn't care. I wanted to like the book, the premise had such promise, I even finished it, I wanted to like it so bad. But I didn't, I was boring, dry, and with so many "EVENTS" it was quite frankly uneventful. HOW?!

Lincoln child does it again

I love this book it was my lunch time book, my break book, my commute book, my anytime I had a minute to read book. I could not stop listening. It's well worth the credit and even if you don't have a credit it's worth $$$. Don't hesitate Scott brick is the best narrator he always does such a fabulous job and Lincoln child is brilliant. It's so descriptive that even if it's not your style of story you will get so hooked.
