This is a heavy tech book, especially in the first hour. The book includes biological machines, Nazis, trans humans, genetic human experiments, solar power, two apocalypses, vanilla sway, moon mining, moon colony, Europa, killer asteroid, A.I., Antarctica and more. I really loved the first half of the book. The second half was good, but veered into psychology and the meaning of life. For the entire second half, you don't know if the main character is actually experiencing what we read or if he is just having a cryo-genic induced dream.
The main character is a boy genius and his girlfriend walked off the canvass of a Luis Royo painting (nothing wrong with that). I am not a fan of dream stuff and that with the several last minute rescues, after deciding several times to kill himself, got tiring. Some may have a problem with the politics. Religion gets blamed for all wars.
The narrator is something special. Between the writing and his narrating, I felt in the book and forgot I was listening. I don't know of a better compliment for a narrator.

Wow, not in a good or bad sense, partly also glad that the book is over. I would best classify it as a mesh of various movies. Certainly changing direction numerous times always keeping you guessing as to where the story is headed. Some good, some bad and others just way out there.
I had the hardest time with the designated time frame that was unveiled and I also felt there was too much description of the environment. At one point about three chapters worth of description.
Anyways, certainly to each there own, I wouldn't listen to it again.

Dramatic description with a creative and tense plot. I would have given 5 stars if the ending wasn't a bit weak.
What made the experience of listening to The Omega Project the most enjoyable?
Michael David Axtell made this audio book ADDICTIVE, he really is that good. I am now on a mission to find other books that he has worked on. You can truly become lost in the experience
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Omega Project?
I do not want to spoil anything for potential listeners/readers but there were at least 3 parts of the book where I was literally screaming at my speakers with goose pimples
