This is by far my favorite Piers Anthony Series. It has one of the best plots involving science fiction and fantasy of any author in either genre. The dialog sometimes is a little stilted but it's a fun adventure and is great for those who aren't die-hard fantasy fans. The overall plot involving a world with two different "frames"--one of science and one of fantasy--is wonderfully done and easily justifies the three books. The last book in the series, Juxtaposition, is a roller coaster ride of increasing stakes as the hero overcomes his enemies and saves both worlds. This series is really meant for adults and older teens as it includes nudity and nongraphic sexuality. There is no "bad language" but the themes are very much adult-oriented. I wish someone would buy the movie rights to this series as it would make an awesome set of movies to rival the best fantasy/sci fi out there.
I didn't like the narrator very much at first but he kind of grew on me. By the third book I actually enjoyed listening to him. He has a rather "bland" voice but is able to differentiate some of the characters so you can tell who is who. If you like reading and have the time I recommend reading this series first. But if you don't, definitely get the audio book and give the first book a little bit of time. It starts slow but picks up pretty fast and then never stops until the end!
In short, if you like Piers Anthony, you will LOVE this series. It's his best by far. And if you've never read Piers Anthony before, read this series first! It's far superior to his other works.

What made the experience of listening to Split Infinity the most enjoyable?
I remember reading this as a teenager. I bought a bunch of Piers Anthony books in audio format and most of his storys have not held up particularly well as an adult. This one actually was as good as I remembered.
What did you like best about this story?
The concept is original and the most compelling part of the story.
Which character – as performed by Traber Burns – was your favorite?
None really, Piers Anthony characters are pretty flimsy at best. The stories are more world or scenario driven.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
This is a great concept and a good book. Be forewarned that the quality of the writing in this series falls off in the remaining books. Personally, I found the third book a waste of time, except to get closure with the series. Any of the books after that were just the author milking the cow for extra cash.

What an imagination has P. A. So well written and performed, with the rest for me to look forward to.
this book was full of humour suspense and a perfect listen for people who love modern fantasy
