Publisher's Summary

These days, even the humans are built by robots.
Charlie7 is the progenitor of a mechanical race he built from the ashes of a dead world - Earth. He is a robot of leisure and idle political meddling - a retirement well-earned. Or he was, until a human girl named Eve was dropped in his lap.
Geneticists have restored Earth's biome and have begun repopulation. But primate cloning is in its infancy; human cloning is banned.
Far from a failed genetics experiment, Eve is brilliant, curious, and heartbreakingly naïve about her species' history. But Eve's creator wants her back and has a gruesome fate planned for her. There is only one robot qualified to protect her. For the first time in 1000 years, Charlie7 has a human race to protect.
Extinction Reversed is the first book in the Robot Geneticists series. For fans of old-school science fiction where robots are people and any problem can be solved (or created) with enough scientists. If you've ever wondered what the world would be like if scientists who'd read I, Robot created a race of robots, or if you ever wondered what might be more dangerous to clone than dinosaurs, this is the series for you.

Great story but maddening narrator

I almost gave up listening several times because the narrator takes an extended pause after every sentence. That hesitation makes you think it's a transition to new chapter....EVERY sentence!
BUT I'm so glad I got through first few chapters because I discovered an interesting twist on the end of humanity & how "humans" could survive premise. The progressing plot helped me to get pass strange timing of narrator.
I'd definitely give this author another try (hopefully with another narrator) & look forward to the next chapter in this series. HOPING this narrator will rethink extended pauses!!

Creative story with a Blade Runner Motif.

Would you listen to Extinction Reversed again? Why?

Yes it is a creative mix of many past writers who illustrate a future earth without humans and the evolution of Androids and how they attempt to emulate their creators.

What other book might you compare Extinction Reversed to and why?

Blade Runner.

What about Paul Michael Garcia’s performance did you like?

He did a reasonable job with the material.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Robots the next level of humans.

Any additional comments?

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Hated this

Hated the obvious story and the writing style capped off by an uninteresting and frustrating narration. Avoid

Disappointing

I really wanted to like this book but ultimately found it impossible to sustain disbelief. And I am saying this as someone who love the Galaxy Outlaws Black Ocean Moebius series with its oddball crew of wizards, primates and giant sentient security feline.

The premise is good, A thousand years after humanity was wiped out by an alien invasion, robots are rebuilding the world in preparation for humanity's return from extinction. Rogue robot geneticists are secretly experimenting with growing humans in the lab; the majority of which are dismal failures destined to live out their short painful lives on Easter Island, known colloquially as the Scrapyard. But then a healthy intelligent girl known as Eve14 emerges.

A major problem with this book is that the supposed robots seem to operate with the same emotions, petty jealousies, rivalries and unreliability of the humans they were first based on while Eve14 displays the rigid and literal mindset one would expect from a robot.

It is unclear why, given she was raised in isolation by a robot known as the Creator, she so readily accepts and trusts otherrobots she has just met, particularly given their desire to remove her from the only person she ever knew.

We also meet another proto-human known as Plato who is hellbent on 'rescuing' Eve14 from her creator, who she also quickly accepts, trusts and follows. It is impossible to understand how another successfully grown human, one with super-human physique hellbent on delivering vigilante justice to unethical robo geneticists, could have lived for years under the radar.

As the book went on, the writing seemed to become more and more cliche-ridden. I finally gave up halfway through, unable to care about the ultimate fate of any of the characters or even humanity.
