Crazy has no memory and feels no fear. Dangerous and unpredictable, he's locked away in SafeHaven, a psychiatric hospital, where he spends the long days watching Wheel of Fortune and wondering what the outside world smells like. When a mysterious visitor arrives and offers him a way out Crazy doesn't hesitate to accept.
But outside the hospital Crazy is faced with a world on the brink of nuclear annihilation, and finds himself relocated to Neuro Inc., a secretive corporation with strange government ties. When he discovers evidence of human experimentation he escapes with a syringe, the contents of which are unknown to him but precious to Neuro. Cornered and with a complete disregard for the results, Crazy makes himself indispensable by injecting the substance into his leg.
As the substance enters his bloodstream, though, his eyes are opened to a world beyond human experience, where fear is a tool and the shadows hide the source of mankind's nightmares. Struggling to understand his new abilities, Crazy allies himself with the company he fled and begins peeling back the layers of his past, the brewing war between worlds, how he can stop it - and what he did to start it.
With Mirrorworld, Robinson, whose trademarked pacing and inventive plots have been highly praised by bestselling authors like Jonathan Maberry, Scott Sigler, and James Rollins, treats listeners to a wildly imaginative, frenetically paced thriller exploring the origins of fear.

Although the cover of the book and brief synopsis didn't really sell me on the idea of getting this, I thought I would listen to this because I enjoy listening to this particular narrator. Pleasantly surprised at the way this story unfolded. Quite a unique idea for book, but well written and good plot line. 5/5
Submarine commander, astronaut and surgeon.....on a weekend. In the week I take it easy, when my regular job, kids and dogs allow :)
Of course, every book deserves your full attention, even if the experience wasn't great.
The world that we all live, love and work in......I got on with that side of things in the story. The cataclysmic end that the world was heading towards was truly frightening, but in teh reason for it was a bit silly.
Powerful, believable, engaging
Yes, but only the once
Its probably my fault but I've listened to quite a few of these alternate world stories in the past year, and if I find the story implausible I lose interest. I know what your'e saying, try something else. OK I will!!!!
Exciting, Imaginative innovative concepts
The detailed reveal of the principal characters transformation
A few heart stopping moments.
Worth a listen more than once.
A terrific piece of story telling. Every chapter kept me enthralled and the twist was excellent. The narrator was excellent, I will definitely be looking for more titles read by him.
The author has kept expected hi standard. Well read. Good listening. So much so that while listening on ear phones in supermarket walked off with someone else's trolley twice !!!!!!
Another amazing book by Jeremy Robinson. I like how Crazy reacts to things. The twists and turns are just right.
"Fun and Refreshing Ride"
Yes, this book is extremely well written. The pace is perfect, the science (and magic) is thoroughly explained so it is believable, and the characters are outstanding.
The main character Crazy (with a capital "C"). While abundantly entertaining throughout the whole book, this character in the first few chapters is the definition of fun. My initial interpretation of Crazy was a combination of Jason Bourne and Deadpool. Robinson's early narrative with Crazy is masterfully packed full of humor and wit, I was literally laughing out loud.Not to say the Character wanes off during the rest of the novel, but once he comes to terms with his reality, he is never the same. Understanding his personal loss, and the dire situation of the world, he (righteously so) takes on a much more somber personality. There are still some great humorous gems found later on in the book, but nothing compared to the reader's first experience with the completely unaware, uninhibited Crazy.
He wasn't asked to do anything crazy in terms of voice acting, but the biggest compliment I can give to any voice actor is that he never diverted my attention from the writing.Very solid narrator.
The story behind the "Evidence" necklace is very touching.
Outstanding book, I am an avid reader of Robinson's "Chess Team" novels (would also highly recommend) and this was an extremely fun and refreshing change of pace while I wait for the next Sigler adventure.
"Crazy good (with a capital C)"
Another winning combination of R.C. Bray's narration and Jeremy Robinson solid story weaving, I swear something just sparks when these guys work together, worth the investment of a credit or buying you won't be disappointed.
"Entertaining and gripping story"
Yes, particularly to someone who likes action books/films. Reminded me a little bit of a marvel comic film. It was fast-paced and exciting.
Reminded me a lot of the marvel comic universe.
R.C. Bray really brings the story to life. He's a fantastic reader.
The second half was a little cliche but still exciting and I felt moved by the struggle of the characters.
"I love everything this author does"
The characterization is awesome.
Information about the main character's past was moving.
I have the audiobook (audible) version of the book and I love it. Not only is it read by an awesome narrator that Jeremy Robinson has utilized for other great books, but it also was just a thrilling story. Concepts of deception, amnesia, the question of forgiveness, revenge and the pursuit of what justice means to us all are wrapped up in a story where a man must find out who he was, who he is, and what he intends to do about what he learns about the details of his life. Of life all around him."Crazy" was a great anti-hero type. He follows his gut even if he's not quite sure of the circumstances going on around him. He's thrown into things he just doesn't understand, but at the heart of the matter- is a past that he can't seem escape from no matter how hard he may (or may not) try.I love a lot of Robinson's characters from his other stories- in truth there aren't many I don't want to see move onto more and bigger stories because they command the space that they're in, but I'm really intrigued by this guy. The man able to push the boundaries because of a birth deformity that allows him to view the world with an emotional condom of sorts.If you've never read Jeremy Robinson before I would recommend something like "Secondworld" or "Island 731" first, since this book (Mirrorworld)- while I love it- might throw a new reader, who might be not prepared for the anti-hero/world painted here and may need to familiarize themselves with the way Jeremy colors his brushes, off - but I'd recommend not leaving this story far behind or alone for too long. It's most definitely worthy your time.
I've read several other books by Jeremy Robinson and this one is by far my favorite! I love the characters. I hope he does a sequel to this or even turns it into a series.
"Robinson and Bray have yet another hit!"
Didn't read the print version. Why do they ask this here?
Many moments. The first journey into mirrorworld...the ultimate battle...the kidnapping scene from the mental institution...all are memorable and will be for some time.
The scenes inside the icecreambulance was funny, entertaining ( although granted violent ) and intense, as well as memorable.
I sure tried, but it is a bit long to do that .
This is an outstanding partnership between RCBray and Mr. Robinson. Unique, intense ( gory and violent at times ) and yet moments of deep humor and thoughtfulness. I was immediately engaged with this offering right from the get go. RCBray brings "Crazy" ( with a capital C ! ) to life in many ways. I will not soon forget him!
"OK, if all you're interested in is "shoot 'em ups""
Somewhat interesting story line, with some interesting plot twists. Unf, much of the book was nothing but shoot-em-up. After a while I found it so boring I quit. I really wanted to finish the book to find out how the story line turned out, but kept falling asleep in the middle of the gun fights.
Should be 1/2 its length. Tell the story, stop filling hours and hours with shoot-ups
Narrator did a good job. I'd listen to him again.
Please don't bother ...
I'm returning this book.
"Great Narration, Great Story!"
What a great ride this story was! I was intrigued by Crazy, the main character, from the start. The multiple dimensions of his world were fascinating and it was fun to go along with him on his journey. The monsters were amazing and creative, as well as absolutely creepy and scary. This story moved quickly and I could not put it down!
Excellent performance by narrators. Very gory good dialogue. Story typical but with multidimensional twist. Enjoyed it.
"*a whole new world*"
im not sure if theres any sequel book planned but it would be welcomed! Interdimensional warfare is a new and fresh idea to explore on-well done, and ill refer this book to everyone I know!
