Publisher's Summary

"[A] cleverly executed [blend] of science fiction, suspense and horror. ... a certified dark journey into madness." (David Gammon, Horror News)
A convicted felon is given a choice following his sentencing: serve a 25-year conventional prison sentence...or spend 365 days in a new, experimental corrections program. He opts for the experimental program, only to realize he has made a horrible mistake.
A dark tale of science spun dangerously out of control, Exoskeleton will leave even the most jaded of listeners quaking in their boots.

Exoskeleton - now I get it

Very compelling, with scenes of cringe-inducing torture. I found myself saying "oh...oh..oh no...oh no..." a lot! This isn't about gratuitous violence - the torture scenes serve to make you understand how truly awful and hopeless the character's situation is, and also to bring about the interesting twist that I didn't see coming. The ending was somewhat abrupt, but I didn't feel like there were loose ends. Definitely recommended.

An Excellent Novel

Where does Exoskeleton: A Novel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Definitely one of the better ones I've read recently. Great writing style, compelling story and original plot elements that keep you guessing. The story keeps it's secrets until the climax, and while it has good detail and thought provoking sections, it never lets them get too technical or too esoteric.

What did you like best about this story?

The narrative structure is definitely the strongest part. He cuts around to various characters and scenes, stays with them long enough to convey the meaning of the scene and moves on to the next. The resulting narrative flow is excellent, it never drags and results in a real page turner. He avoids the pitfalls of this type of writing by focusing on a core cast of characters and never padding it out with throw away characters.

Any additional comments?

This book clearly leaves some questions unanswered and there are definitely hooks for a follow-up if the author plans to write one. So if you are the type of person who wants every last detail explained, you may be disappointed.

Messed up! but amazing.

I loved this it is the first one I have listened to that was not epic fantasy or zombie.

It had me gripped from the start and gave me a few nightmares. I finished it in 2 days. Loved it
