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.

    "Terrible sci-fi"

    I was genuinely quite excited to read this as the opening premise of a disaster befalling a generation ship leaving a sole survivor sounds really interesting. Boy was I disappointed.

    The first bad sign is that the back-story doesn't make any logical sense, and as more is revealed the less sense it makes. Then the author takes you through a plot with several large 'twists' but these are executed clumsily with no foreshadowing or dramatic buildup, so while they are a surprise they also lack any impact. The fact that these twists are often completely unbelievable doesn't help.

    The main character is ok, he feels like a cross between the protagonists of Ready Player One and We are Legion (We are Bob), but he does do some pretty inexplicable things that aren't well explained and there is some really ham-fisted character building later on.

    As science-fiction it's pretty terrible. I can live with magical technology but the universe is not internally consistent the and the author has a tendency to just invent and introduce some new piece of magic just when he needs it so it's full of 'deus ex machina'.

    Overall the book feels like a low-budget Hollywood action film. There isn't any substance here and even the action manages to be dull.

    R. C. Bray is great as always.

    "Heartwrenching, and Mind-boggling"

    Despite a somewhat predictable ending, it didn't lessen the genuine pain and loss it made me feel.

    A fantastic concept, and very well executed. R.C. Bray is as always incredible and brings life to likeable and funny characters. Excellent.

    "Suprised this book isn’t more popular! "

    I just listened to this book in one sitting. As I finish it feels like I’m coming out of a trance back to reality. This book had me completely engrossed from start to finish, which is pretty rare for me these days. I’d highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys science fiction, horror, and thrillers and the books description details. I did find it to be predictable at times but that didn’t stop me from enjoying it.

    "An existential bombshell!"

    - Josh here

    This book came to my attention through the narrator’s Facebook page, R.C. Bray. Needless to say, I had to listen to it for the sheer fact that he was selected as the book’s narrator.

    This book left me with several moments of questioning my own reality, reflecting on my own thoughts surrounding the very nature of our existence, and wondering about how we define our own reality. What started out as a space-based post-apocalyptic story quickly delved into areas that have fascinated me for quite some time, immortality and simulation theory. Mr. Robinson wrote a book that dragged me in and kept me hooked throughout the duration of the story.

    I was immediately drawn to Will and his plights as he struggled with what to do given his new-found situation. I mean, what does a person do when they find out they are unable to die through traditional means? We quickly watched Will develop throughout the story, along with GAL, as Doubty McKnowitall/FB was thrust into some very unique situations.

    I will say that I had the ending figured out about an hour prior to it arriving, but that still did not detract from any of the story/encounters. The plot was very well developed and the characters were relatable. I even found myself emotional at various points such as when the situation with Will’s brother (Steven) came up along with Will’s revelation later in the story.

    The real impact of the story hit me around chapter 35 and highlights the nature of the title for my review. Again, the primary theory discussed in this book is one that has fascinated me all of my life.

    R.C. Bray, per the norm, did a wonderful job with the narration. I could not imagine a better selection for this story.

    This is an easy 5/5 book and one I am trying to get my wife to listen to. Give this one a listen, you will not be disappointed.

    ...engage!

    "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.

    What a powerful work and combination by Bray ( who is clearly at the top of his game now, and it shows in this offering ) and Robinson. A magnificent , sprawling and thoughtful offering.
    An ideal book for SciFi fans, and anyone who enjoys complex, yet approachable speculative fiction. HIGHLY recommended!

    "Wild ride start to finish!"

    The premise of the book was intriguing, but truth be told having RC Bray as the narrator convinced me to purchase this book instantly. I am very glad I did. The author has created an action packed story that had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I highly recommend this book. No spoilers here... but when it ended I wish I had a sequel to jump straight into. I haven't read any other reviews of this book. As I mentioned I bought it because of the narrator. For me this is an excellent story well worth the time and credit. There will always be someone who poo poo's a story for some reason. If there is one for this story they should be ignored. If you are still unconvinced... get it just to listen to RC Bray.

    This is a well written and thought out story, a very good mixture of action and suspense. A little cumbersome in the beginning but it was necessary to set the stage. Well read by my favourite narrator.

    I've been a sci-fi fan for a very long time. By far, this is one of the best books I've ever read or listened to.

    R.C. Bray brings a whole new world of original premise and story to life. He is, without question, one of the best in this business.

    My bet is that you will enjoy this book immensely.

    "I really liked this book. If you like “the matrix” or “off to be the wizard”, or “we are legion (we are Bob)” check this one out"

    Not perfect but pretty dang good. I was hooked and binge listened until it was over. Lol. I like stories that touch on how people act when they’re stranded by themselves and often wonder how I’d react in similar situations. This book took a unique path, as our protagonist had some unique circumstances and I think I might have taken a similar path in the same situation. Hard to say, but it was quite entertaining to read about Will’s adventure. The guy reading it did a fantastic job.
