Searching for a new home....
The Galahad, a faster-than-light spacecraft, carries 50 scientists and engineers on a mission to prepare Kepler 452b, Earth's nearest habitable neighbor at 1400 light years away. With Earth no longer habitable and the Mars colony slowly failing, they are humanity's best hope.
After 10 years in a failed cryogenic bed - body asleep, mind awake - William Chanokh's torture comes to an end as the fog clears, the hatch opens, and his friend and fellow hacker, Tom, greets him...by stabbing a screwdriver into his heart. This is the first time William dies.
It is not the last.
When he wakes from death, William discovers that all but one crew member - Capria Dixon - is either dead at Tom's hands, or has escaped to the surface of Kepler 452b. This dire situation is made worse when Tom attacks again - and is killed. Driven mad by a rare reaction to extended cryo-sleep, Tom hacked the Galahad's navigation system and locked the ship on a faster-than-light journey through the universe, destination: nowhere. Ever.
Mysteriously immortal, William is taken on a journey with no end, where he encounters solitary desperation, strange and violent lifeforms, a forbidden love, and the nature of reality itself.
...he discovers the infinite.
Jeremy Robinson, the master of fast-paced and highly original stories seamlessly blending elements of horror, science fiction, and thrillers, tackles his most ambitious subject matter to date: reality itself. An amalgam of the works of J.J. Abrams and Ridley Scott, Infinite is a bold science fiction novel exploring the vastness of space and a man's desire to exist, find love, and alter the course of his life.
I just listened to this book in one sitting. As I finish it feels like I’m coming out of a trance back to reality. This book had me completely engrossed from start to finish, which is pretty rare for me these days. I’d highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys science fiction, horror, and thrillers and the books description details. I did find it to be predictable at times but that didn’t stop me from enjoying it.

The premise of the book was intriguing, but truth be told having RC Bray as the narrator convinced me to purchase this book instantly. I am very glad I did. The author has created an action packed story that had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I highly recommend this book. No spoilers here... but when it ended I wish I had a sequel to jump straight into. I haven't read any other reviews of this book. As I mentioned I bought it because of the narrator. For me this is an excellent story well worth the time and credit. There will always be someone who poo poo's a story for some reason. If there is one for this story they should be ignored. If you are still unconvinced... get it just to listen to RC Bray.

This book came to my attention through the narrator’s Facebook page, R.C. Bray. Needless to say, I had to listen to it for the sheer fact that he was selected as the book’s narrator.
This book left me with several moments of questioning my own reality, reflecting on my own thoughts surrounding the very nature of our existence, and wondering about how we define our own reality. What started out as a space-based post-apocalyptic story quickly delved into areas that have fascinated me for quite some time, immortality and simulation theory. Mr. Robinson wrote a book that dragged me in and kept me hooked throughout the duration of the story.
I was immediately drawn to Will and his plights as he struggled with what to do given his new-found situation. I mean, what does a person do when they find out they are unable to die through traditional means? We quickly watched Will develop throughout the story, along with GAL, as Doubty McKnowitall/FB was thrust into some very unique situations.
I will say that I had the ending figured out about an hour prior to it arriving, but that still did not detract from any of the story/encounters. The plot was very well developed and the characters were relatable. I even found myself emotional at various points such as when the situation with Will’s brother (Steven) came up along with Will’s revelation later in the story.
The real impact of the story hit me around chapter 35 and highlights the nature of the title for my review. Again, the primary theory discussed in this book is one that has fascinated me all of my life.
R.C. Bray, per the norm, did a wonderful job with the narration. I could not imagine a better selection for this story.
This is an easy 5/5 book and one I am trying to get my wife to listen to. Give this one a listen, you will not be disappointed.

Of course everything R C Bray performs ("narrates" is the wrong word at Bray's level) is great. My only real complaint is the title. It reveals too much. In the words of the book'sain character, "It's too easy". The title is almost like "The Return of the King". (Gee I wonder what happens in that book). What's bad about all this is that unfortunately this entire review is a spoiler. Either way though I thoroughly enjoyed it. The whole time I'm not trying to figure out how it would end but rather where it began.

This is a well written and thought out story, a very good mixture of action and suspense. A little cumbersome in the beginning but it was necessary to set the stage. Well read by my favourite narrator.

Trapped on a space ship to nowhere due to a kooky passenger having a bit of bad end of the world experience, our plucky hero searches the universe to learn about the meaning of life..
Long descriptive chapters but did not feel of substance to provoke story or imagery. Watch the related movies to get the feel for the atmosphere.
Brays perormance, and typically im a supporter, this time could have been more emotional; a scene where murder was on someone's mind was more a reading of a police report. Late chapters seemed to improve and of course when he gets to swear.
Had to listen to the final chapters at 2x to get through it.

I've been a sci-fi fan for a very long time. By far, this is one of the best books I've ever read or listened to.
R.C. Bray brings a whole new world of original premise and story to life. He is, without question, one of the best in this business.
My bet is that you will enjoy this book immensely.

The story is engaging and unique - initially more so than as the plot continued - but ultimately it is very sophomoric and was definitely not (for me) the special experience some reviewers portrayed.
RC Bray is a major reason for the good reviews. The dude is just a master at this genre.
Sadly, I was disappointed.

I am not sure what I expected. It was different than my usual military sci-fi or space-opera type of science fiction entertainment. It is also much different than my forays into mysteries and romances I take to temporarily leave the sci-fi world. Science and religion have been trying to explain infinity and will continue to do so until our deaths (physically or spiritually). Jeremy Robinson gives us several trips down several possible paths using science fiction as the vehicle. It is a fun trip and I would highly recommend it.

Another fantastic book by Jeremy Robinson. The story had lots of twists I couldn’t stop listening, beautifully narrated by R.C. Bray.
Despite a somewhat predictable ending, it didn't lessen the genuine pain and loss it made me feel.
A fantastic concept, and very well executed. R.C. Bray is as always incredible and brings life to likeable and funny characters. Excellent.
I was genuinely quite excited to read this as the opening premise of a disaster befalling a generation ship leaving a sole survivor sounds really interesting. Boy was I disappointed.
The first bad sign is that the back-story doesn't make any logical sense, and as more is revealed the less sense it makes. Then the author takes you through a plot with several large 'twists' but these are executed clumsily with no foreshadowing or dramatic buildup, so while they are a surprise they also lack any impact. The fact that these twists are often completely unbelievable doesn't help.
The main character is ok, he feels like a cross between the protagonists of Ready Player One and We are Legion (We are Bob), but he does do some pretty inexplicable things that aren't well explained and there is some really ham-fisted character building later on.
As science-fiction it's pretty terrible. I can live with magical technology but the universe is not internally consistent the and the author has a tendency to just invent and introduce some new piece of magic just when he needs it so it's full of 'deus ex machina'.
Overall the book feels like a low-budget Hollywood action film. There isn't any substance here and even the action manages to be dull.
R. C. Bray is great as always.

Mr Robinson has an amazing ability to draw me into the worlds he creates .
And the cool thing is that I can see the twist coming but somehow he convinced me that I am imagining it!! So he still manages to surprise me .
Great book -well worth downloading.
PS . RC Bray is my favourite narrator on Audible
He breathes life into everything he narrates -fantastic work
