Professional reviews

"Carey's mystery is the painfully slow, meandering story of a cyber attack on the Australian and American prison systems. Narrator Colin McPhillamy may be trying to compensate for a weakly constructed plot, but in doing so, his narration takes on a light and whimsical tone inappropriate to the content. While Carey does use humor in journalist Felix Moore's attempt at chronicling the life of the hacker, it's a dark and dry wit. McPhillamy makes Moore sound clownish. To his credit, he makes a grand effort trying to keep this dragging audiobook lively, but listeners looking for a captivating cyber thriller will be better off forgetting about AMNESIA.
