Publisher's Summary

"You owe it to yourself to experience this audio odyssey birthed in the fertile mind of Stan Lee as he propels the listener into a digital sidereal of past, present and future.” (Roy Thomas)

A brand-new audio event set in the Audible and New York Times best-selling Alliances universe of legendary creator Stan Lee, performed by fan favorite Wil Wheaton.

Biohacker Olivia Park is obsessed with an emerging mystery within Oz, the online portal created by alien technology. What she finds is a primitive xenobot, Eno, who takes her on a mind-bending trip through time that begins as the Berlin Wall is falling, and takes her back to the origins of the modern internet and the fall of a digital Atlantis created by her father, Wesley Park, and entrepreneur William Ackerson.

A New Reality expands Stan Lee’s final science fiction universe in new and unexpected ways, exploring the early global computing boom of the 1990s through the eyes of two well-meaning visionaries whose innovations introduce the world to the promise, power, and perils of connectivity - and whose original sins could destroy it all.

Good story Line

A little hard to get the characters lined up at first but they bring it together for a nice beginning or prequel for things to come

Quick to develop. Simple yet thoughtful

What is it to know our parents. To frame our reality and our personality around what we think we know about them.

Loved it!

The story is captivating, and the narrator's performance is great. The only thing might be that the story is to short. It does leave wanting to know what happens next. I am looking forward to the sequel.

Last half was ok

First half to 2/3 of the book very boring. Last portion got more interesting. So bumped up to 3 stars. Would I listen again... Absolutely not. Very glad it was a freebie for me. Waste of time? Not exactly.

Also, the narrator was able to communicate the emotion of an activity but could never make me actually feel it like some of the top narrators can. Not sure what it was or how to better explain it.
