Publisher's Summary

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.

Great Story

Any additional comments?

Great story about alternate realities and dimensions. Really enjoyed this book. Jeremy Robinson is a great story teller, and RC Bray is a good narrator

I wish RC Bray would narrate my thoughts.

Great narration by RC Bray as ussual, the story started out quite interesting but slowly descended into cliche, saying that, I still enjoyed it and it is worth a read/listen.

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.

I love everything this author does

What does R.C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The characterization is awesome.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Information about the main character's past was moving.

Any additional comments?

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.

Fun and Refreshing Ride

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What about R.C. Bray’s performance did you like?

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.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The story behind the "Evidence" necklace is very touching.

Any additional comments?

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.

Started out amazing and ended with a dull thud!

Had I written this review at the half way point of the book, it would have gotten all 5 stars. But, unfortunately, the book fell apart in the last third. What started out as fresh and innovative and a really original scifi/thriller genre book, ended as boring and repetitive thriller garbage. I really couldn't wait for it to end. It's frustrating, because this book could have been one of my all time favorites. Instead, it'll be forgotten with a sea of other books.

The narration was excellent throughout the book. I'll try another Robinson book just based on the first 2/3rds of this one, but I really can't recommend this one to anyone.

Crazy Scary Story -- RC Bray is brilliant

I bought this book because R.C. Bray is an amazing narrator! As a bonus I was delighted to discover that Jeremy Robinson has written a good science fiction tale with lots of convincing-sounding science and technobabble.The story line is basically "Jason Borne saves the world from "fearsome" aliens hidden in an interdimensional reality". Lots of obligatory machismo, high-tech weaons, blood and gore, mixed with monsters and a sprinkling of romance. Could make a good Sci-Fi Channel movie.

Robinson and Bray have yet another hit!

Would you consider the audio edition of Mirrorworld to be better than the print version?

Didn't read the print version. Why do they ask this here?

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mirrorworld?

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.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scenes inside the icecreambulance was funny, entertaining ( although granted violent ) and intense, as well as memorable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I sure tried, but it is a bit long to do that .

Any additional comments?

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!

Highly recommended!

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.

Entertaining and gripping story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

What other book might you compare Mirrorworld to and why?

Reminded me a lot of the marvel comic universe.

What does R.C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

R.C. Bray really brings the story to life. He's a fantastic reader.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The second half was a little cliche but still exciting and I felt moved by the struggle of the characters.

Big Bad revealed too soon...

I really enjoyed the first third of this book. The concept was intriguing and caught my attention. I feel that once the Big Bad was revealed, it kind of went downhill and all the mystery was gone. RC Bray was spot on as usual, just the story was .. meh.

Brilliant Sci Fi

I always praise RC Bray and his narration in every review and this one it is no different. The way he reads books brings them alive. This book is well written and has good dialogue. The story starts off in such a way that the sci fi it becomes feels worlds apart. But soon after you feel there is. something supernatural to this story and it kicks in.. I liked the way the author tries to link real world historical events to science fiction element of the book...kind of makes you think he may be right!
good sci fi/fantasy with brilliant narration.

Thought provoking

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

Rc Bray saved this story

Without one of the best narrators RC Bray, this story would have got 2 stars.
He brought the characters to life in his expert way.

Dimensional Worlds, I fell in between the two

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Of course, every book deserves your full attention, even if the experience wasn't great.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

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.

What three words best describe R.C. Bray’s voice?

Powerful, believable, engaging

Was Mirrorworld worth the listening time?

Yes, but only the once

Any additional comments?

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!!!!

Truely Drivel, so bad even RC Bray can't save it.

RC Bray as always gives his best but this is nonsense and BAD on so many levels it would be impossible to know where to start I did finish it but with a feeling of awe at how many flaws this story had. Don't know the author and on this offering I'll not be buying any other of his works.

Good, ending was slightly disappointing

Good narrator. Good story. A bit too drawn out in action scenes towards the end and some changes to some characters get a bit.....TOO SILLY... near the end. As it goes on the characters get less deep too as some tragic past events come to light but hardly seem to affect the hero and other characters.

First half was extremely enjoyable, I gave it 4 rather than 3 stars for that reason. The general idea is kind of crazy but it's fiction and that's fine, but when it descends into endless action towards the end it gets a bit dull... I listened to this about a month ago and to be honest I can hardly remember the details of the very end, I finished it because I'd started and at the very end I found it hard to pay attention.

If you like your heroes to be HEROES and like reading/listening to very very very very long fight scenes then you probably won't agree with me about the ending.

I enjoyed it enough to try another by this author 'SecondWorld' but that turned out to be even more endless, silly, cheesy action stuff, so overall I suppose his work is not to my taste.

Fun action sci-fantasy!

This was a decent action thriller with some sci-fantasy aspects. It could have been a really good story as the writing was engaging and the characters and story were both intriguing enough at times but I felt like it was held back at times by an over reliance on lengthy mindless action scenes.

The main character was a ton of fun and definitely had a few cool quirks that made him quite fascinating and memorable.

I enjoyed this but did feel like it could have been even better if a few of those mindless monster squashing scenes did not drag on quite so long! It really hurt the middle phase of the story.

I felt like R.C.Bray did a decent job with the audio.
