Publisher's Summary

Searching for a new home....

The Galahad, a faster-than-light spacecraft, carries 50 scientists and engineers on a mission to prepare Kepler 452b, Earth's nearest habitable neighbor at 1400 light years away. With Earth no longer habitable and the Mars colony slowly failing, they are humanity's best hope.

After 10 years in a failed cryogenic bed - body asleep, mind awake - William Chanokh's torture comes to an end as the fog clears, the hatch opens, and his friend and fellow hacker, Tom, greets him...by stabbing a screwdriver into his heart. This is the first time William dies.

It is not the last.

When he wakes from death, William discovers that all but one crew member - Capria Dixon - is either dead at Tom's hands, or has escaped to the surface of Kepler 452b. This dire situation is made worse when Tom attacks again - and is killed. Driven mad by a rare reaction to extended cryo-sleep, Tom hacked the Galahad's navigation system and locked the ship on a faster-than-light journey through the universe, destination: nowhere. Ever.

Mysteriously immortal, William is taken on a journey with no end, where he encounters solitary desperation, strange and violent lifeforms, a forbidden love, and the nature of reality itself.

...he discovers the infinite.

Jeremy Robinson, the master of fast-paced and highly original stories seamlessly blending elements of horror, science fiction, and thrillers, tackles his most ambitious subject matter to date: reality itself. An amalgam of the works of J.J. Abrams and Ridley Scott, Infinite is a bold science fiction novel exploring the vastness of space and a man's desire to exist, find love, and alter the course of his life.

Excellent Excellent Excellent

I don't understand the negative reviews. This book is epic. A thrilling cerebral hidden love story. Very thought provoking and leaves you wanting more. I was thinking about it days after I finished. Fine writing.

One of the best SciFi stories ever written!!

As a lifelong SciFi fan whose favorite authors include the likes of Issac Asimov, Larry Niven and Dennis E. Taylor, I simply cannot express how wonderful this story is. Beautifully written, expertly narrated and inescapable in it's breadth and scope. A true masterpiece!

Not what I was expecting

I bought this on sale not expecting it to be too great... but was pleasantly surprised.

The story isn’t too dense, just a nice easy listen but without being stupid like some lighter sci-fi feels (IMO at least)... yet once you’re done reading it provokes some thought.

My only dislike was the main characters’s immortality. This never really sat right for me, but sometimes you just have to go with it.

If you’re in the mood for something a bit light then this is a good listen. For me this was a nice break between reading/listening to far more dense sci-if novels but was still satisfying.

Enjoyable

A great twist take on timeless questions. This gave me multiple ideas of where to start numerous other stories. Imaginative, believable, worth the time.

Brilliant.

A wonderful story of existentialism coasting on a mix of comedy, sci-fi and and the fall of humanity.

Interesting plot twists.

I almost gave up on this after a few chapters. But I read the reviews and went back in. Turned out to be a really good novel with lots of plot twists.

This was exciting and thought provoking. Get it. Immerse yourself. It's a beautiful story. I'll be thinking about this one for awhile.

Waste of time and money. Utterly mediocre

What disappointed you about Infinite?

The premise of this book is hackneyed and trite. It tries to tackle some "big ideas" but doesn't do them justice. It lurches from scene to scene and the "surprise ending" can be spotted a mile away. There is so much better science fiction out there that there's no need to waste your time on this. It's not interesting or well written.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Maybe something by John Scalzi. Better science fiction, better ideas, better humor.

What three words best describe R.C. Bray’s performance?

Adequate. Professional. Workmanlike.

Any additional comments?

Just bad. I rarely feel compelled to write reviews, but the fact that this has so many good reviews is a real head scratcher. It's the only reason I bought it and I feel ripped off. Honestly it seems pretty fishy.

OMG! Awesome Story

This book is amazing. I honestly think this has bumped my #1 book to #3. I've found my new #1 favorite book. If you like mind bending, action, love stories that play out over time. You'll love this book. Everything was outstanding IMO. The pace, the story telling, the performance. This is a must read.

FAUX BOOK!

Let’s see: “life is a simulation “ ?!?
This book is a simulation of crap, only real...
A new low for SF. Too many cliches to mention.
But my favorite “life is more real in a simulation “. Are you serious?

a rather complex science fiction story

“Infinite” is a well-crafted, complex, romantic, science fiction story that is so much more than what it seems at first glance.   It is written by Jeremy Robinson, who at the time of this review has nearly fifty books available on Audible.  The audiobook edition is exceptionally well narrated by none other than R. C. Bray.  Mr. Bray is ranked as one of the best narrators and he has a few quite popular titles under his belt; including “The Martian” by Andy Wier.  I mention this because the book, for me, felt, like a bit like “The Martian”, along with parts from the movie “Inception” and sprinkle in a few ideas from the movie “The 13th Floor”.  If you enjoy science fiction books that have a fair amount of action, mystery, artificial intelligence, along with time and space dilemmas, I recommend you pick up this book and give it a listen.

I will admit that the book was a bit confusing at the start.  You are dropped into a rather complicated and confusing scene with no real background allowing you to digest it.  A few chapters into the book, it opens up like a budding flower and you are able to see all the beauty of the story holds within.  There were a few additional bumps along the way where I thought I had missed something, but the author was able to get me back on track rather quickly.  Often this seemed like a writing technique the author implemented on purpose giving the listener a more unsettled feeling.  As stated earlier, the book had a feel of “The Martian” on a spaceship instead of taking place on Mars.  That simplifies the story and background, but knowing this you will have a better idea of what you are in for when you listen.  Like with that story, there were plenty of times the main character narrowly escapes death, has to perform undesirable tasks, and often just wants to survive this long and lonely trip in one piece.

What I liked was the author’s ability to blend many different genres without focusing too much on one.  Don’t get me wrong, this is a piece of science fiction, however, is also includes aspects of mystery, intrigue, romance, and endurance.  At times the book feels weighty and even a bit gloomy based on its backstory details, but the author is able to throw in pieces of humor so the story does not feel too overwhelming.  There was a fair amount of physics and space/time travel discussion I the book, but one does not need to be a rocket scientist to understand it; but if you are, you may enjoy it even more.  The author provides you with all the necessary concepts along the way so anyone understand it.  Things like the difference in time for someone on earth compared to time observed by a person in a ship traveling faster than the speed of light (FTL).  I felt the research as solid, believable and informative.  I enjoyed how the story unfolded and provided hints or clues on why such a tragedy occurred during the opening scene.

The narration of the book by R. C. Bray was what I would have expected from a veteran in his trade.  The book was professionally voiced across the many different characters and I do not remember any audio artifacts while listening; swallowing, page turns, etc.  The audio volume was consistent throughout the book.  I have never been disappointed by any narration done by Mr. Bray.

For parents and young readers, this book does at times have a fair amount of vulgar language.  There are also some quite graphic and violent scenes which may not be appropriate for younger readers.  The book has some storyline focused on romance; but nothing I can recall that was overly explicit or sexual.  There are a few scenes containing anti-religious pokes, but again, I do not feel the author was using this to get across some hidden agenda.

To summarize, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a rather complex science fiction story involving artificial intelligence and time/space.  However, being in space is only one small part of the overarching message that I think others will enjoy.  There is quite a bit that will appeal to lovers of SciFi, but I would recommend it also to those who aren’t into science fiction but enjoy being challenged by a well-written story.  If you feel lost at the start, that is not a bad thing.  Stick with the book and buckle up as you will enjoy the flight.

Boring and predictable. I had the plot figured out immediately. I just couldn’t manage to suspend my disbelief long enough to get into this book.

Loved it

Excellent book that leaves you on the floor at the end. Space travel, AI, romance and tragedy all wrapped up in one space ship.
