Infinite Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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.

I will think about the protagonist in this book throughout the rest of my life and I don't know how I could not love this book anymore. Good on you Jeremy.
Compared to the majority of Robinson’s catalog, this novel is a large departure – both in style and content. “Infinite” is the 38th novel I’ve read from Robinson, so I feel pretty qualified in making an honest assessment of the book. Robinson typically is an action / adventure guy. His novels are usually filled with exciting chases and battles, mutated monsters, and edge of your seat action. There are exceptions of course, but for the majority, this is his typical formula. And he’s good at it. Robinson has delivered, time and time again, books that provide big enjoyment worthy of becoming summer blockbuster movies. If there was an area where his catalog was lacking it was probably in the deeper more thoughtful and introspective novels. He helps fill that void with “Infinite”. In this one Robinson shows a deftness in the way he handles both William’s own thoughts and feelings, as well as his relationship with Gal and Capria.
To be honest, I was unsure of my feelings on this one for much of the book. It’s starts slowly (particularly for a Robinson novel) and then seems to split off in several different directions as the story continues. Three quarters of the way through the book, I was feeling like Robinson had tried to include too many plot lines into one book because certain aspects of the story seemed forced. But then, I finished the book. And Robinson reminded me why he’s the author and I’m just a reader. The twist towards the end of the story was so good and it was there all the time and I didn’t pick up on it. He not only uses the twist to surprise, but to also tie in all of the other elements of the story that seemed a little out of place before. Suddenly everything in the book made perfect sense. It was very much like an “Ender’s Game” moment as you realize that all of the clues where right there and you were so caught up in the story that you missed them.
This is not just a great science fiction story, I could make the argument that it is one of Robinson’s best novels to date.
