Publisher's Summary

When New Reality, a fully immersive, five-dimensional entertainment experience, was introduced to the world, everyone logged on.
Everyone except Jake and Tom.
It doesn't take long for the world to crumble into ruin, leaving Jake and Tom wandering through leveled cities occupied by New Reality dreamers. In order to find one gamer among many, they must risk everything - going up against Rixon, the corporation behind New Reality.
Facing starvation, the New Reality headsets offer sustenance from a synthesized sludge pumped directly into the gamer's body. With a headset, they'll get fed and their only limitations are their own imaginations. They can have paradise, comfort, and peace. They have the power to realize their deepest desires.
But for Tom, it'll mean sacrificing his son to the false reality masterminded by Rixon. For Jake, it'll mean sacrificing his dream of living a true existence, no matter how stark.
Wrestling with the decision, they soon find out they aren't the only ones living in the ruins. Someone…something else, has taken an interest in the pair.
Turning from scavengers to prey, they have to make a decision. Family or self? Faith or fear? Truth or New Reality?

Can you trust reality!!

Interesting book, with a good performance from Matt Armstrong. Didn't really explain how they survived for 4 years before the story began, they did not seem to close for people surviving that long, although the ending did cover some of it and did have a twist to it.

Brilliant, a great book & a new must read series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Full of twists and turns. Matrix like but in all the good ways and certainly not a copy. The characters are good and I love the whole premise of the world(s) in which they live.


What was one of the most memorable moments of New Reality: Truth?

I'm left with plenty of questions and answers. The book is really good and it's got me hooked so I can get my answers in the following book as well as this one. I loved the way the gamers are portrayed. No living in ease, it's s real take I what happens when you plug into something.


What does Matt Armstrong bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Brilliant pacing. It really brought the book to life. Also a good voice and good characterisation of the story. Very good.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I did it in 2 sittings.
