Crazy has no memory and feels no fear. Dangerous and unpredictable, he's locked away in SafeHaven, a psychiatric hospital, where he spends the long days watching Wheel of Fortune and wondering what the outside world smells like. When a mysterious visitor arrives and offers him a way out Crazy doesn't hesitate to accept.
But outside the hospital Crazy is faced with a world on the brink of nuclear annihilation, and finds himself relocated to Neuro Inc., a secretive corporation with strange government ties. When he discovers evidence of human experimentation he escapes with a syringe, the contents of which are unknown to him but precious to Neuro. Cornered and with a complete disregard for the results, Crazy makes himself indispensable by injecting the substance into his leg.
As the substance enters his bloodstream, though, his eyes are opened to a world beyond human experience, where fear is a tool and the shadows hide the source of mankind's nightmares. Struggling to understand his new abilities, Crazy allies himself with the company he fled and begins peeling back the layers of his past, the brewing war between worlds, how he can stop it - and what he did to start it.
With Mirrorworld, Robinson, whose trademarked pacing and inventive plots have been highly praised by bestselling authors like Jonathan Maberry, Scott Sigler, and James Rollins, treats listeners to a wildly imaginative, frenetically paced thriller exploring the origins of fear.

Fun and Refreshing Ride
Yes, this book is extremely well written. The pace is perfect, the science (and magic) is thoroughly explained so it is believable, and the characters are outstanding.
The main character Crazy (with a capital "C"). While abundantly entertaining throughout the whole book, this character in the first few chapters is the definition of fun. My initial interpretation of Crazy was a combination of Jason Bourne and Deadpool. Robinson's early narrative with Crazy is masterfully packed full of humor and wit, I was literally laughing out loud.Not to say the Character wanes off during the rest of the novel, but once he comes to terms with his reality, he is never the same. Understanding his personal loss, and the dire situation of the world, he (righteously so) takes on a much more somber personality. There are still some great humorous gems found later on in the book, but nothing compared to the reader's first experience with the completely unaware, uninhibited Crazy.
He wasn't asked to do anything crazy in terms of voice acting, but the biggest compliment I can give to any voice actor is that he never diverted my attention from the writing.Very solid narrator.
The story behind the "Evidence" necklace is very touching.
Outstanding book, I am an avid reader of Robinson's "Chess Team" novels (would also highly recommend) and this was an extremely fun and refreshing change of pace while I wait for the next Sigler adventure.
Crazy good (with a capital C)
