Publisher's Summary

On the brink of a disaster that could end all human life on Earth, tech genius Robert Eisenbraun joins a team of scientists in Antarctica on a mission to Jupiter's moon Europa to mine a rare ore that can provide for Earth's long-term energy needs. But as he and the rest of the team train under the ice shelf in preparation for the long journey, trouble erupts. Before they embark, Eisenbraun finds himself the odd man out, and is put into cold sleep against his will.

When he wakes, Eisenbraun finds the ship deserted and no longer functional. He escapes to the surface of an Earth terribly changed. The plan has gone horribly wrong, but as he adapts to a hostile environment, he realizes that there is still a way to accomplish what the mission had set out to achieve. But he also discovers that he faces a new adversary of the most unlikely sort. Now his own survival, and that of the woman whose love has sustained him in his darkest hours, depends on the defeat of a technological colossus partly of his own making.

Confronting a foe that knows him almost as well as he knows himself, Eisenbraun faces the prospect of depending on resources he has reason to believe will be available on one particular night of a full moon - a night foretold by a mysterious, unseen ally to be a pivotal moment for the fate of the planet. The game has changed, and Earth's future depends on him and him alone.

The Omega Project is yet another edge-of-your-seat thriller by best-selling author Steve Alten and is sure to leave listeners looking for more.

    "creative and actuon packed"


    Dramatic description with a creative and tense plot. I would have given 5 stars if the ending wasn't a bit weak.

    "Brilliant story and incredible narration"
    What made the experience of listening to The Omega Project the most enjoyable?

    Michael David Axtell made this audio book ADDICTIVE, he really is that good. I am now on a mission to find other books that he has worked on. You can truly become lost in the experience


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Omega Project?

    I do not want to spoil anything for potential listeners/readers but there were at least 3 parts of the book where I was literally screaming at my speakers with goose pimples


    Which character – as performed by Michael David Axtell – was your favourite?

    The thoughts of the main character

    Story
    "THIS PLACE EATS SCHOOL GIRLS LIKE YOU"

    FOR BREAKFAST
    This is a heavy tech book, especially in the first hour. The book includes biological machines, Nazis, trans humans, genetic human experiments, solar power, two apocalypses, vanilla sway, moon mining, moon colony, Europa, killer asteroid, A.I., Antarctica and more. I really loved the first half of the book. The second half was good, but veered into psychology and the meaning of life. For the entire second half, you don't know if the main character is actually experiencing what we read or if he is just having a cryo-genic induced dream.

    The main character is a boy genius and his girlfriend walked off the canvass of a Luis Royo painting (nothing wrong with that). I am not a fan of dream stuff and that with the several last minute rescues, after deciding several times to kill himself, got tiring. Some may have a problem with the politics. Religion gets blamed for all wars.

    The narrator is something special. Between the writing and his narrating, I felt in the book and forgot I was listening. I don't know of a better compliment for a narrator.

    Story
    "Inception meets The Matrix and Island of Dr Moreau"

    Wow, not in a good or bad sense, partly also glad that the book is over. I would best classify it as a mesh of various movies. Certainly changing direction numerous times always keeping you guessing as to where the story is headed. Some good, some bad and others just way out there.

    I had the hardest time with the designated time frame that was unveiled and I also felt there was too much description of the environment. At one point about three chapters worth of description.

    Anyways, certainly to each there own, I wouldn't listen to it again.

    Story
    "Flailed Towards The Finish"

    Overall an enjoyable story and a great performance.

    Story became erratic towards the end as it tried to story multiple possible endings. It felt like the finale was rushed and a little unfinished.

    Still well worth three time.

    "Global Warming Warning!"

    This could have been a great story, but like the "Vostok" book, it was confusing. It preaches global warming disasters..Its end of the world situations are unbelievable as well. No science for the fiction...

    Story
    "A lot if good ideas that never quite come together"

    The author had a lot of intriguing ideas, but it felt like he couldn't quite settle into the story. The beginning and end of the book were chaotic, jumping from plot point to plot point. I found myself not caring about the outcome. The middle of the story was cohesive, but I didn't really find it as interesting as some of the other threads introduced by the author. As a result, I found myself disappointed in the book. Additionally, a lot of set-up and exposition didn't really pay off. Finally, the women in the story felt like accessories, only important because of how they affected the main character. We never got much insight into their motives, and it felt like they were inconsistent. Overall, the book wasn't bad, it just felt like it contained a lot of wasted potential. The performance was good, and it isn't the performer's fault, but his voice was a bit too soothing and I found it hard to concentrate at times.

    Story
    "Disappointed."

    The idea of the story seemed interesting, but it never seemed to gather momentum. The first half of the book felt erratic and seemed to never get a foothold anywhere. The story just kept leaping from one thing to another with no real flow. Once in the new world, it finally settled down but it became somewhat cheesy at that point. Wasn't a fan.

    "A deep thinker!"

    The story was one that you could emurse into . Great character development and you really want the two main characters to work it out . The landscapes where fleshed out and the hero was just a flawed human wanting to survive.... great book worth the credit!
