Great sci-fi book with an ok narrator

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a very cool sci-fi story with a great plot and interesting characters. The narrator was ok, if a bit quiet and nasally at times. All in all, the story was interesting enough to keep my attention the entire book.

Mr. Jones and me look into the future

OMG! WTF! Ok, so this is not so much a reaction to the book as it is a commentary on the author’s seemingly love affair with those three-letter exclamations. Spanning multiple characters across the length of the book, OMG and WTF were sprinkled in everywhere. I’m not sure why the author felt like using it so much, but after a while their overuse started to be little pinpricks, pulling me out of the story.

Also, there were a few “Really? Come on!” moments in the book. The main character, Kent, never leaves his apartment. I’m not sure why this bothered me but it did. The love interest of the Kent’s prior clone, Becca, falls in love with Kent almost immediately, and a group of clones decide to have an incestual orgy for no reason other than the males in the group realize their junk is oversized.

Ok rant-mode over. Like the author, I’m a software developer, and a big cyberpunk fan. I geeked out on the technical aspects included generously in the story, including AI, androids, and advanced tech. The plot was engaging. I liked the overarching threat to the world integrated into the plot, and wanted to stick around and find out what happened in the end.

Lastly, Mr. Jones gave really detailed descriptions of the food eaten, and they made my mouth water. Mission accomplished, Mr. Jones, if that’s what was your intended result.

Emily Lawrence did a commendable job reading the story. She had a lot of challenges, including scenes with MANY characters talking, so the range of voices she had to perform was maxed out and she pulled it off brilliantly. I liked how she performed the AI and android voices. At times, her voice did get a little nasally, but overall I enjoyed her performance.

The title of this review is a line from the author's namesake song by the Counting Crows. I felt it was obligatory to include. You are welcome.

This audio book was gifted to me by the author in exchange for an unbiased review.
