Publisher's Summary

In the near future, to escape the crush and clutter of a packed and polluted Earth, the world’s elite flock to Atopia, an enormous corporate-owned artificial island in the Pacific Ocean. It is there that Dr. Patricia Killiam rushes to perfect the ultimate in virtual reality: a program to save the ravaged Earth from mankind’s insatiable appetite for natural resources.

I tried... but cannot do it anymore

Several narrators just doesn't work unless they always narrate the same character. In this book they don't and it is hard to follow who is whom.

I found this story really frustrating and with two more books in the series, I just can't do it anymore.

Interesting take on a possible future

I really enjoyed this book, future based stories are one of my favourite genres. The mini stories are strong and tie in well together to make sense at the end of the collection. To avoid spoilers I won't go into detail but the stories centre around a new technology which can be used in many different ways, this collection of stories is about many characters that take advantage of this technology and the consequences surrounding it.

The audio book is narrated very well and flows from reader to reader, it is easy to listen too and keep track of who is reading which character.

All in all a good book, I look forward to listening to other books by Matthew Mather.
