Publisher's Summary

From James Dashner, the author of the New York Times best-selling Maze Runner series, comes an edge-of-your seat adventure. The Eye of Minds is the first book in The Mortality Doctrine, a series set in a world of hyperadvanced technology, cyberterrorists, and gaming beyond your wildest dreams...and your worst nightmares.
To catch a hacker, you need a hacker. For Michael and the other gamers, the VirtNet can make your wildest fantasies become real. And the more hacking skills you have, the more fun. Who wants to play by the rules anyway? But some rules were made for a reason.
One gamer has been taking people hostage inside the VirtNet with horrific consequences. The government needs Michael to track down the rogue gamer, but the risk is enormous, and the line between game and reality could be blurred forever....

"In typical Dashner style, this is quick and involving, with the main frustration being the wait time until the next book." (Booklist)
"Dashner does not disappoint." (Stephen King, The School Librarian)

Eye of minds.

The story synopsis has already been covered in the Audible introduction so I won't elaborate.
The idea behind this story is a very interesting one and the writing simple and easy to follow, with the text well read by the narrator. It is exciting in parts but, after a while, seemed to be lacking in imagination with the trials on the main protagonist's journey becoming limited to simplistic slog-it-out scenes or fairy tale settings which felt too unsophisticated for the overall concept. It would have been an excellent short story but failed to convince as a full length book. It would also probably do better as a film where visuals would flesh out the characters as well as providing a depth of strangeness and confusion.
However, I listened to the not too surprising conclusion. It became my book to fall asleep to at the end of the day.

Any additional comments?

The plot and story were predictable and boring. I tried really hard to listen to this but just couldn't bring myself to.
