Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you found your perfect life?

When lonely physicist Chloe Carsen discovers a parallel world, she becomes addicted to her life there with a perfect family and a perfect career. She doesn't even care that her physical body in the real world is wasting away. But, then, in the alternative world, her ideal life begins to fall apart. Her anti-gravity experiment unleashes a government manhunt for her and her family; they'll do anything to get their hands on her tech. The lives of Chloe's alternative-world husband and sons are endangered.

Chloe is torn away from them as her real-world brother finds her on the verge of death and destroys her equipment. Heartbroken and torn between two worlds, Chloe pushes her scientific expertise to the limit to find a way to reconcile her two lives. Can the husband and sons be saved? Can she build a life for herself in the real world?

    Quiet man who enjoy Audible Audio-books as a way to escape from the world each day. They provide an excellent soundtrack for my daily walks.

    "Reality Alternative Great Concept but Bogs Down."

    Reality Alternatives looked to be a really promising concept. A VR headset sending the user into a virtual world but ends up sending them to a parallel world. Chloe Carsen is a lonely physicist and discovers the parallel world. She quickly gets addicted to her life in the other reality. There she has a perfect family and a perfect career. Or so it seems. The listener gets to hear what her life would look like if she had made different choices. The story got hard for me to take while Chloe was in the parallel world and the choices and decisions she made. Really it was just a problem for me with the character and plot development. Overall it was a decent story that does eventually pay off in the end. As a guy who loves SciFi, Dystopian Fiction, and so forth this was a mixed bag for me. I gave it a try as It was something really interesting and I really liked the narrator. I recommend it but be ready to be annoyed by the main Characters choices.

    This is the first time I have ever heard a performance from Susan J Iannucci. Ms. Iannucci delivers a great performance. There are a wide variety of character and she was able to give each a unique voice and manner. Ms Iannucci did a great job and I would like to hear more of her work based on this performance.
