Description

Dazzling, paranoid literary sci-fi for fans of Blake Crouch and Philip K. Dick: Vin, a down-on-his-luck young tech entrepreneur forced out of the software company he started, takes a job house-sitting an ultra-modern Seattle mansion whose owner has gone missing. There he discovers a secret basement lab with an array of computers and three large, smooth caskets. Inside one he finds a woman in a state of suspended animation. There is also a dog-eared notebook filled with circuit diagrams, beautiful and intricate drawings of body parts, and pages of code. When Vin decides to climb into one of the caskets to see what happens, his reality begins to unravel, and he finds himself on a terrifying journey that asks fundamental questions about reality, free will, and the meaning of a human life.

Professional reviews

"Narrator T. Ryder Smith captures Vin's submissiveness and self-loathing with a listless tone throughout this story of a man who is moving through alternate universes. Once Vin discovers the technology that allows him to transition from self to self, Smith varies his pace to reflect Vin's increasing agitation as he hunts for a balanced, fulfilling life. With secrets doled out carefully and intriguing secondary characters reappearing in slightly altered roles, this highly conceptual audiobook will give listeners much to ponder as they follow Vin's metaphysical journey. Each time Vin changes lives, listeners will hope, as he does, that perhaps this new life might be the perfect one. But as the cost of each attempt becomes clear, Vin's tone reflecta his continued depression and burgeoning horror. J.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
