Summary

On the brink of a disaster that could end all human life on Earth, tech genius Robert Eisenbraun joins a team of scientists in Antarctica on a mission to Jupiter's moon Europa to mine a rare ore that can provide for Earth's long-term energy needs. But as he and the rest of the team train under the ice shelf in preparation for the long journey, trouble erupts. Before they embark, Eisenbraun finds himself the odd man out, and is put into cold sleep against his will.
When he wakes, Eisenbraun finds the ship deserted and no longer functional. He escapes to the surface of an Earth terribly changed. The plan has gone horribly wrong, but as he adapts to a hostile environment, he realizes that there is still a way to accomplish what the mission had set out to achieve. But he also discovers that he faces a new adversary of the most unlikely sort. Now his own survival, and that of the woman whose love has sustained him in his darkest hours, depends on the defeat of a technological colossus partly of his own making.
Confronting a foe that knows him almost as well as he knows himself, Eisenbraun faces the prospect of depending on resources he has reason to believe will be available on one particular night of a full moon - a night foretold by a mysterious, unseen ally to be a pivotal moment for the fate of the planet. The game has changed, and Earth's future depends on him and him alone.
The Omega Project is yet another edge-of-your-seat thriller by best-selling author Steve Alten and is sure to leave listeners looking for more.

creative and actuon packed


Dramatic description with a creative and tense plot. I would have given 5 stars if the ending wasn't a bit weak.

Brilliant story and incredible narration

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

Which character – as performed by Michael David Axtell – was your favourite?

THIS PLACE EATS SCHOOL GIRLS LIKE YOU

FOR BREAKFAST
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.

Axtell
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.

Flailed Towards The Finish

Overall an enjoyable story and a great performance.

Story became erratic towards the end as it tried to story multiple possible endings. It felt like the finale was rushed and a little unfinished.

Still well worth three time.
