Publisher's Summary

A theme park attracting 65,000 visitors daily, Utopia is a world on the cutting edge of technology, complete with robots and futuristic holograms. But when ominous mishaps begin to disrupt the once-flawless technology, Dr. Andrew Warne, the brilliant computer engineer who designed much of the park's robotics, is summoned to set things right. On the day he arrives, Utopia is rocked by something far more sinister. A group of criminals has infiltrated Utopia's computerized infrastructure and gotten control of all its attractions and systems. Their threat: that if their demands aren't met, every man, woman, and child will become a target. Now Warne must try to save the lives of thousands of innocent people, and among those unsuspecting crowds is his only daughter.

Utopia (unabridged)

The roller coaster on the cover of this book says it all. I got this unabridged audio from the original publisher and thought it was worth every $ I spent. I've shared it with a few friends and it's always slow coming back because they just have to let their husband or wife listen to it also. I've been a fan of the Preston & Child books for years and I think Lincoln Child might even be better as a solo writer. I won't waste space with a synopsis of the book as Audible has done that already on the abridged listing.
You get involved with the main characters quickly, and the robotic and computer systems running this theme park are intriguing even for my non technical friends. This is much more of a thriller than a mystery or a horror story. I figured out the "who done it?" part early on, but I don't think the author was trying for another Agatha Christie novel, the roller coaster ride is what this book's about. I've read a couple reviews saying the ending was stretched out. I must admit it did seem that way but I thought it was because I couldn't wait to know how it turned out. This book will never be on Oprah's list. It doesn't try to be the next great American novel, but it's a great way to spend a long commute.
As always Scott Brick is a top-notch narrator who doesn't disappoint. Get the unabridged edition, you're going to want to spend awhile at this Park. When you get this book be ready to sit back strap in and just have fun.

Will make you forget you are driving

I am not a huge fan of thrillers, but decided this one had enough technology added in to keep me interested, and I am glad I got it. Great commute listening! I found myself constantly engaged, so much so that I had to be careful I wasn't just poking along on the highway. Some parts are a bit over-drawn out, and I had the bad egg figured out right from the start, but the descriptions of the park, wow...would love to go to an amusement park like that, without John Doe. The readers is fantastic. He does accents well and even does the female characters justice. First male reader I've heard who does do a consistently good job with female characters. Sometimes he forgets the accents while reading, but not enough to distract from the overall quality.
