Publisher's Summary

Not far in the future, the seas have risen, and the central latitudes are emptying. But it's still a good time to be rich in San Francisco, where weapons drones patrol the skies to keep out the multitudinous poor.

Irina isn't rich, not quite, but she does have an artificial memory that gives her perfect recall and lets her act as a medium between her various employers and their AIs, which are complex to the point of opacity. It's a good gig, paying enough for the annual visits to the Mayo Clinic that keep her from aging.

Kern has no such access; he's one of the many refugees in the sprawling drone-built favelas on the city's periphery, where he lives like a monk, training relentlessly in martial arts, scraping by as a thief and an enforcer. Thales is from a different world entirely - the mathematically inclined scion of a Brazilian political clan, he's fled to LA after the attack that left him crippled and his father dead.

A ragged stranger accosts Thales and demands to know how much he can remember. Kern flees for his life after robbing the wrong mark. Irina finds a secret in the reflection of a laptop's screen in her employer's eyeglasses. None is safe as they're pushed together by subtle forces that stay just out of sight.

Vivid, tumultuous, and propulsive, Void Star is Zachary Mason's mind-bending follow-up to his critically acclaimed novel The Lost Books of the Odyssey.

    I use audiobooks as means of an escape from reality. Nice to just relax with a book. Ienjoy a very eclectic array of genres...anywhere from chick lit romance to mystery to science ft. Just a common mother of three.

    Story
    "I really tried. "

    This book is so obscure! I kept listening, got very interested, then completely lost! so the cycle starts over. I really wanted to like it. One of the charecters seems so disjointed from the story. if you can call it a story. I like stories that switch pov's but this was horrible. as soon as you get attached to one it switches, and you lose interest, then you forget what in the world is going on because time place is so obscure. I am not sure if this review makes sense, but if you understand read the book, if it was all over the place and you dont understand then pass. The story had potential. Very poor delivery.

    Story
    "so much potential"

    seemed to just drag on and on the story is actually really good but its split between three points of view that switched way to soon between them to fast and the narrators who I like seemed to talk like .. i dont know every sentence was a statement. Some one else might have a different opinion will buy authours​ next book even though this one was lacking. Definetly good enough to deserve a second chance.
