Exoarchaeologist Evan McElroy has made a discovery about a long-extinct alien race. But his sponsors realize they can make huge gains if the new findings are kept completely secret. Step one of their plan is to kill the entire research team - starting with Evan.
As Evan flees for his life, his trajectory awakens a long-buried struggle. The Infoterrorists, who believe all ideas are screaming to be free, have waited years for the right moment to take on the seven great families that control all of civilization. This could be their opportunity. Or it could be time for millions to die.

The equivalent of an enjoyable scifi popcorn flick
I'd definitely read another book by either the author or narrator. The author had believable characters and a moved the story along at a nice clip. The narrator did well. He kept it varied without venturing into voices that get irritating.
I have not listened to one of his books before.
The narrator's tone matched the tone of the book well. He could convey a decent set of characters without resorting to screechy voices or etc.
It could go either way. You could trim a few things and have something better than 'Jupiter Ascending', but maybe not as good as '5th element' or leave everything and do it as a 6 part BBC series. Ending lends itself to TV show more, I suppose.
I'd just be interested to hear more about lead to the middle section in the tunnels. It turned survivalist for a few chapters when the rest of the book was so scifi. And can we please get a different unit of distance than 'Parsec', so unoriginal, not meta as others would have you believe.
Left me wanting more
One of my favorite parts of SciFi is how the authors can project the possible evolution of mankind. In The Great Symmetry, the author projects a time when seven large companies rule/governor the various worlds to which humankind has moved
The sections that detailed the trip though the cave were very good
Although Mitchell Lucas has a fine voice and clear pronunciation, sentences and paragraphs run together without pause, reducing understanding
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher
