Publisher's Summary

In an increasingly wired and computer-friendly world, massive multiplayer online games have become the ultimate form of entertainment. And the most popular gaming universe of all is Omnitopia, created by genius programmer Dev Logan. For millions of people around the world, Omnitopia is an obsession, a passionate pastime, almost a way of life. But there's a secret to Omnitopia, one that Dev would give his life to protect: the game isn't just a program or a piece of code. It's become sentient - alive. And it's Dev's job to keep it that way.

Outstanding! reminds me alot of .hack//sign

Would you listen to Omnitopia Dawn again? Why?

I will most definitely be listening to this story again, there were more then one plot going on throughout the story not as many as some books but still enough to want to hear it again with some of the spoilers in mind to get a better feel for the storyline as a whole.


What did you like best about this story?

it reminded me a lot of .hack//sign which was a childhood favorite anime of mine, but more then that it represents a future that I might just live long enough to see (assuming tech goes that way of course) in a believable setting.


Which scene was your favorite?

my favorite scene was near the end of the book when Rick's wife was really starting to catch the bug for online gaming and looked to add a scent to a cartoon like flower. to me it showed that through games (or books) people of all walks of life can find a release from day to day stress without trying to hide from their individual realities.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

it was really a bit to long to want to listen straight though, I preferred to stop every once and a while to let something I just listened to sink in or even re-listen to something that might not have made since the first time around (I listen at work and get distracted from the important things like reading)

I hope I live to experience this first hand.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It was entertaining and a bit funny. Although the pace was slow, the premise a little less than original ("Sword Art Online" ".hack//SignSign") and the ending like a freight train coming tword you; It was still good.


What did you like best about this story?

Gryphon poop. Also the inate coolness of creating an entire game world like the one Rick (was that his name?) made.


Any additional comments?

Hope the author writes the next one. Then gets it published. Then publishes an audio version. Then audible.com gets it. And sells it really cheap. That's all.
