Publisher's summary

Stanley Gabrels has been online for most of his life, living in a makeshift paradise hovering above those left behind for the sake of progress, shoulder to shoulder with thousands of others like him, working nonstop, guided in everyday life by the world's most advanced artificial intelligence.

As passionate as he is for the latest technology and augmentation, he also longs to escape from the constant barrage of information that is stripping away his humanity. When offered to crack a code that could make him a fortune, he becomes involved in a deadly game of cat and mouse that will forever change him and the world as he knows it.

Entertaining, Complex Sci-fi

This is the first book that I have read/listened to written by Eric Danhoff. He has quite the imagination and did an effective job presenting this complex futuristic world governed by technology. The characters were nicely developed and the plot moved along at a steady pace. This story was well written and told with a perspective that made me question the possibilities. Sean Duregger's narration complimented the story and added to my listening pleasure. I was provided a free review copy of this audio book and am voluntarily leaving this review.

Solid, and complex, SF

While I enjoyed the book overall, I did have trouble following it at times. Sometimes that’s on me, and sometimes that’s on how the book comes across in audio. In this case I think it was a bit of both. The concepts presented were interesting, and I enjoyed many of the characters and settings. The narration was good, many of the voices were very distinct, which helped with a cast as big as this. If you enjoy a dystopian future with a cyber-punk flavor, this may well be the book for you.

Dark SciFi

The concept was great. Overall I enjoyed it. The book felt slow in places and rushed towards the end. It was a pretty dark story but not without hope. The narration was solid and seemed to fit well with the characters.

Extremely Intriguing Sci/Fi

The story opens well with much detail throughout. This is not a “lightweight” narrative, but requires much attention in order to truly appreciate it. The Narrator used excellent vocal pressure in a most professional manner.
I would recommend this audiobook for ages 17 and older due to tense situations, violence, language, and some sex scenes.
I was given this audiobook for free and I freely give it my rating and opinion

Good story, poor translation to audio

I think I was confused more often than not while listening to this audio book.
Sounded like a good story that I really felt drawn to but was often too confused to follow along.
This may have been due to a reasonably common issue I have had with the audio book world.
This audio book is a another example of the difference between reading a book, even a kindle book, and listening to that same book when narrated.

When reading a book, there are visual clues as to how we read and interpret the text. Common things like periods, sentence structure, and paragraphs will change how a subject is communicated.

When listening to an audio book, we depend on the narrator to provide us those clues as we listen to the story. Any decent narrator is reasonably proficient with these devices. This is not my issue and I don't believe that my issue is truly the narrators fault. Or the authors fault either.

In many stories there are chapter breaks. Some stories have time breaks within chapters and some stories even have complete subject/context changes inside of a chapter. An example would be that a chapter starts out following one person while that person is doing something. A time break means that we are still following the same character, but, that character is now somewhere else doing something else. A noticeable amount of time has passed. On the written page there is often a large break in the text to show this time jump. Later on in the chapter, we may switch to a different character. This is similar to a time jump but also includes a character change as part of the jump. It is also signaled in a similar way on the written page.

The problem that I am having, and happens often in this book, is that there is no cue to the listener that such an event has occurred. When listening to a story, the only clues to even a paragraph change is is the subject of the paragraph and you have to listen for that . But a paragraph change really does not matter when listening unless a major change has occurred. Like a time jump. Two characters in the middle of a conversation... one falls silent... the other, after a pause, asks whats the matter? This is common with narrators. A simple pause in speaking deals with this pause in the dialog. But what if the next words in the conversation are weeks later? The same two people are speaking. The same questions are being asked. A similar conversation is taking place. But the time has jumped. When listening to the narration there is no difference between this time jump pause and the simple pause in the dialog of the prior conversation. Until the story literally tells us that time has passed we have no idea and this can often cause issues tracking with the story. I often hear no pause at all for chapter breaks, time jumps, character changes, or anything else you can imagine that is commonly shown on the written page that does not translate to the narrated page.

Some stories actually state the chapter breaks. I like this practice because when I hear this I can start looking for what has changed for the new chapter. I understand that it can be jolting in some stories but it is a needed tool for the listener to follow the story as the reader would.

I am thinking we need some tool for these other breaks as well.
I simply must say that there is a problem when the listener can not tell the difference between a period and a time jump let alone a character change or even a chapter break.

I must say that I thought the narrator did a good job with this story. I don't think a different narrator would have read this any differently. Although, if a narrator was aware of these issues they could likely create some ways to make the listener aware of such changes as mentioned above.

Hard to follow

I enjoy cyber-punk so I was hoping to really enjoy this based on the description, however the story feels overly complex and is frankly hard to follow. You can get there but it takes an effort.

Narration is good, putting feeling and emotion into the story and a good fit for the feel of the story as a whole.

I received a copy of this book at my request in exchange for a fair review.

Not for me

I couldn't get past the narrator to enjoy the story. His style seemed to set me on edge. I'm going to read the story on KU.
