I'm not going to go into details of the plot because other reviews have done so. I will say many aspects are plausible and possible which makes the story more realistic. And even if the story feels a bit "sci-fi", there is too much credibility in the story to simply lump the book into that category.
The characters are well crafted and I had an immediate connection with all of them (well, the good ones, anyway). Even though there are several main characters, I had no trouble keeping track of all of them thanks to Brian Andrews' wonderful writing.
The gripping twists and turns in the story kept me listening far past when I should have gone to sleep. And the ending- WOW WOW WOW!!!. When I finished listening, I looked out the hotel window and said (actually out loud!), with my mouth hanging open: "Holy S*%t- What a ride!!".
Do yourself a big favor and READ/LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!!!!! You will not be disappointed.
Brian does a masterful job taking high concept scientific theory and breaking them down in a way that is both understandable and quite fascinating. His characters are compelling and their struggles universal. The novel is well paced and each chapter leaves you wanting to know how the characters will resolve the next conflict which happens to be only a page or two away.
And the ending? WOW. I’ll admit I didn’t see THAT coming. Without giving it away I’ll say you might need to go back and re-read the last two chapters. Things aren’t always as they seem and humanity’s greatest enemy walks amongst us in plain sight.
Computer technology has proved a Reset is in order from time to time, pick up a copy of Brian’s book and see what a real Reset truly entails.
I liked the story, but it was Ray Porter's narration that really made this book!! As always, he did a superb performance!
The ending was one of those big twists that I didn't see coming and really stayed with me. I could have absolutely done without the preachy Afterword though. Just tell the story and hope you get the point across from the story. The message was there for me, but the soapbox kind of turned me off.

Plenty of twists with the characters and plot and the ending is worth waiting for.
