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.

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.

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.

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 wish her shorts were longer!

As always JT Lawrence has done it again. I absolutely love her style and her twists and turns. Enter a normal dystopian day with a normal dystopian character. She heads to the doctor for a checkup and learns that she had once been pregnant, but that is impossible because she has no memory of children, it must be a glitch. She begins to investigate and uncovers quite an unbelievable conspiracy that will change her life forever. I can't say much more without spoilers, but it is a great listen. I was unsure about the narrator at first but it ended up working out fine. I wish we could get some more shorts with these characters, I would love to see what happens next!

Remembering a life that never existed

This is the tenth book I’ve read/listened to by this author and I have loved everything until now. This book has quite a twist to it, but not wholly unexpected.
Talia’s understanding of her life and world falls apart as she learns she has given birth before. As she attempts to unravel the truth she learns there is more to the mystery than just an unremembered pregnancy.

This is the first book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Michael T Bradley) and I would listen to another. He did a fine job reading this book. His female characters were good.

There are no explicit sex scenes, or excessive violence. There is a little swearing.

The Memory Hacker

I really enjoy JT Lawrence. I have read a lot by her and almost everything has been superb. This is no exception. This story was short but sweet and right in line with the futuristic semi-dystopian world she has created. I am a big fan. The story was read well and the creative way the story unfolded was great.

This story was given to me for free at my request for my voluntary and unbiased review.

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.

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 !

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.

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.

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 .

Could this really happen?

I really had to ask myself the question 'could this really happen' and the answer is yes. In this day of technological advancement, I think it really could. The story moves fast, no room for boredom here, as Talia discovers she has not only previously given birth, but also nursed a baby at her breast. She goes on a mission to find her children. The story takes place a good twenty years from now, advancement in medical care has routine physical's being performed by a machine, with room for mistakes--or is it even possible for the machine to make one. Talia has to figure that out. There's betrayal, love, hope, loss, and sacrifice. The book is well-written with an interesting plot and strong characters. The narrator has a strong, professional voice. It's a great book that anyone who likes Sci-fi stories or fast-paced adventure will enjoy. **I was provided a free copy of this audio book for review purposes, which in no way swayed my opinion.**
