I liked it

This author does cyberpunk really well, and I went into this one with high expectations. She did not disappoint. It's short, but it's good. I only gave the narrator a 4-star, probably because I'm being unfair. He was really good, but anything set in South Africa, in my opinion, should have character accents consistent with that! He was quite American with all of his accents. Like I said, probably being unfair. :)

A Power Packed Short Story!!

This story is full of so many twists and turns that you do not see the ending coming!! I was a bit hesitant to request this book due to a review that mentioned a sex scene that they felt was out of place and mutilated children. I was glad that I took a chance to decide on my own! Yes, there is a sex scene but very graphic and no mutilated children! I'm not sure why they said that but I found the sex scene was tastefully done (and I read a lot of erotica where they aren't) and, again I say, no mutilated children! The narration was well done although I was surprised to hear a male voice narrate a mainly female point of view story but Michael T Bradley did an excellent job. My only complaint was that he sounded a bit flat in the very beginning but after about ten minutes or so the narration picked up and really brought the story to life. A great way to spend an hour and a half and I will be recommending this book to my friends. I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Some memories can’t be forgotten...

What a thriller! JT Lawrence gives us a look at a very believable, futuristic world. I love immersing myself in her stories. Michael T. Bradley did a great job with the narration. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Nice quick read

You think you know what will happen or what is coming. Part of the story seems like something you’ve heard or seen before.....but this is still an original short story. Nice quick read. Narration was excellent. I was voluntarily provided this review copy at no charge by the author, publisher and or narrator.

WOW!!!!!

My only regret with this book is that it wasn't longer. This was such a good story!! The slow reveal and the what and why-for's was awesome. I won't give anything away but that ending was AWESOME. The narration was stellar and helped to make this such an intriguing listen!

Compact and surprising

Without giving any of the plot away, you may think you know where the story is going, but it's pretty unpredictable. Set in a mostly-plausible near future with believable characters, the writing is descriptive without being too wordy. There's not a ton of character development, but it didn't bother me much here. I also enjoyed the narrator who did an above-average noirish read. Definitely give it a shot. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I love this book

The premise of this book brings a touch of horror, who want's to think about having their memory tampered with? I've listened to and enjoyed several cyberpunk books, so I had high expectations and this book delivered. Great characters and a gripping story, I was left wanting to press play again and experience it all over again. Michael did a great job with the character voices and with building tension in all the right places. I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Unexpected twists!!!

I loved this audiobook! I wasn’t expecting much from such a short story, but I’m glad I finally listened to this after having it sit in my library for months! I sped up the narration to 1.5x. I felt like the narrator spoke too slow, but his voice is pleasant and still easy on the ears, even at 1.5x. I don’t want to give anything away in my review, so I’ll just say that this is the first audiobook I’ve listened to that was completely unpredictable, from start to finish. Oh, also there’s a sex scene, but it’s nothing overly descriptive or vulgar in my opinion, just FYI! I’ll definitely be listening to more audiobooks by this author!

And again !

And she does it again, a true masterpiece. Wow I hate you JT Lawrence, your stories grab me and won’t let me go right from the beginning which is a must in a short story no way to fix if it’s not done right and you mastered it, figured out the system perfectly. Yes I lied I don’t hate you, the opposite is the truth ! What a beautiful story. Michael T. Bradley have also done a perfect job narrating. Full heartedly recommended to all ! In exchange for an honest review I’ve received this audiobook.

Short but punchy

This story caught my interest from the start and kept it all the way to the end. The plot trundled along with a mystery - scifi style, and the characters seemed believable. The narrator did a good job and the production was ok. If you're looking for a quick futuristic listen, then this audiobook may suit you. I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

The Memory Hacker

This was a good story on memory and family and what you or anybody could be called on to put themselves through for them. But! It’s not a happy family story. It is a story that I absolutely engrossed .

Underwhelming

I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This book really appealed to me, but it tried to cram so much into such a short amount of time that it feels underwhelming because nothing is properly fleshed out and the book ended up feeling shallow.

An enjoyable listen

This was an interesting listen. I found the plot engaging. I would of freaked out in Talia's situation. I am not sure what I would have done. It was interesting watching it all unfold. I would recommend this novella to anyone who enjoys Cyberpunk books.

JT Lawrence does it again

I have enjoyed all the listens I have heard from this author, and this book also delivers. A short listen, along the lines of Eternal Sunshine with likeable characters, well explained plot and as always, a wee twist.

true to form

I was given this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review Once again JTL did not disappoint. Short and sweet, I thought I’d worked out the twist only for it to twist again. I really enjoy this world / time and its stories.

For fans of early PKD.

I'm a big fan of early PKD. Askew worlds, were both technology and reality are off-balance for the protagonist who accidentally looks into the shadows and here the Memory Hacker manages to capture the essence of the early works of PKD extremely well.

Review

What a sad story... Just imagine not remembering you children. I don’t think I would survive such horror, but that’s what happens in this futuristic story. I loved the short story in Sticky Fingers 2 and was glad we got a glimpse into Rex’s life and why he had erased his wife’s memories. I’m hoping that the story continues so we can see what will become of the children.
