    It’s been a few years since I read Infinite, the first book in the ‘Infinite’ series by Jeremy Robinson. The first few pages of Infinite2 took me right back there. William Chanokh seems to be right back there, too. Trapped in an infinite universe, living countless lives. Will isn’t sure what’s real and what’s not. Heck, I wasn’t even sure some of the time, which is the evil genius of this book. To catch you up, in Infinite, Will is part of a mission to the distant planet, Kepler 452b. Earth is no It’s been a few years since I read Infinite, the first book in the ‘Infinite’ series by Jeremy Robinson. The first few pages of Infinite2 took me right back there. William Chanokh seems to be right back there, too. Trapped in an infinite universe, living countless lives. Will isn’t sure what’s real and what’s not. Heck, I wasn’t even sure some of the time, which is the evil genius of this book. To catch you up, in Infinite, Will is part of a mission to the distant planet, Kepler 452b. Earth is no longer viable and the Galahad and her crew are the last best hope for humanity. The crew is supposed to be in stasis, but there’s a lot of malfunctioning going on. Will spends ten years living a nightmare. His body is asleep; his mind is not. I can do a sixteen-hour flight to Australia with just my thoughts for company. I can close my eyes and daydream for about half of it. I usually spend the rest of the time finding people to talk to. Yes, I am that person. The one lingering by the rear of the plane, stretching, bouncing on my toes, getting ready to trap weary travelers in conversation. Ten years, though. If we had a Tom on the plane, I would be the crew member everyone voted to sacrifice first. Who’s Tom? The guy killing everyone on the <1>Galahad. I guess he wasn’t into long flights with only his thoughts for company, neither. He actually has another agenda, but you’ll need to read the book to learn what it is. What I will tell you is that Will only escapes because he’s immortal. Even more intrigued? Read Infinite, it’s a wild ride. I loved the constant stretch of reality and the inventiveness of Will. I was both excited and a little anxious about a sequel. Before I get into what Infinite2 is about, let me just put this out there--it’s an amazing book. In the world of sequels, it measures up in two important ways: It’s not an unnecessary extension of the first story and it’s not the same story told again. There are definite similarities, though, which at the beginning serve well to remind the reader of what’s gone before. The book starts with Will in the Great Escape, an infinite alternate reality created by himself and Gal, the sophisticated AI who becomes Will’s lover and partner in the first book. It’s not unexpected that we’d find him there. What doesn’t fit is the voice calling him back. At first, the Great Escape feels so real, the voice and clues that connect from reality to reality don’t fit. Eventually, Will becomes aware that his life is a series of stories where he has chosen a character to play and that reality exists somewhere outside these stories. Then he wakes or thinks he does. Then, he realises he’s trapped and that the AI he’s trapped with, his constant companion and lives-long love, Gal, is his jailor. What happened? What went wrong? The only way to find out is to wake up and so begins a series of what we could call nightmares as the Gal thrusts Will into ever more terrifying alternate realities where the only way out is death. Will might be immortal in both real life and his alternate lives, but dying that many times, over and over and over again, takes its toll. Add that the AI he loves is not herself and the Great Escape is now a great big trap. When Will does finally wake, he’s not sure what’s real and what’s not and that’s partly due to the fact he’s lost a lot of himself along the way. A part of it could be the countless deaths but, to fully immerse himself, he locked most of his memories away. Now he needs to reclaim them, which won’t be as easy as plugging in and resetting the program. Virtual reality has become a trap and guess what? Real reality (I can’t believe I just typed that) is something of a trap, too. Infinite2 is another wild ride, but beneath the almost endless cycle of lives and realities, the stories Will, Gal, various iterations of Gal and the only other human crew member, Capria, run through is a deeper story asking the same question over and over: What is real? This is a question I’ve asked myself. You probably have, too. Tell me you haven’t lain awake at night wondering whether it’s all a dream? Many of us have questioned the meaning of life and the purpose of reality. In any given lifespan, we often have the time to live multiple stories. To reinvent ourselves, over and over. Life is confusing. How do we keep it all straight? We have to peel the layers back and examine the core of ourselves. That’s what Will has to do here. He has to not only remember who he is and what he wants, but he has to feel it. To want it, all over again. One of the aspects of Jeremy Robinson’s books I always enjoy is the relationships he writes and the amount of emotion he layers into them, whether it’s friendship, romance or even something antagonistic. His characters are always well-rounded in that they think and feel. They act and react. They read like real people. Will feels even more so and the reason for that would be in the author’s note at the end of the book which, to me, was another highlight. As a writer, myself, I’m always interested in what inspires the stories of others and after reading about where Infinite2 came from, I was even better able to appreciate the blend of virtual and real. Infinite2 is an entertaining read. Deeply thoughtful, but not so esoteric as to be unreachable. It’s a story of adventure, survival, the question of reality and what it is to be human. I highly recommended it. Reviewed for SFcrowsnest.

And I preface each review this way so it doesn't sound like I'm a hater or a complainer. Anyways, I, like the vast majority or Robinson's fans (known as "The Tribe") was super excited when it was announced that Infinite was going to be getting a sequel. It's no secret that Infinite was/is Robinson's best selling novel of all time, and easily one of my favorites in all of his standalone work. You can read plenty of reviews that state the same thing, but basically, at the time, it was his most heartfelt, deep, and well written of his novels and I loved every minute of it Infinite2 however, doesn't feel even close to the same author or story. Unlike the first Infinite, this second iteration is confusing and lacks the heart we saw originally. While Infinite was a story about a man learning about reality and what it means to be human, 2 is more of a typical techno-thriller where it's man vs. sentient AI. Personally, in doing this, I feel like Robinson cheated readers of the emotion we felt for Will the first time around. It's also super confusing. Obviously Robinson has never been a straightfoward storyteller and generally I enjoy how he melds multiple genres and doesn't stick to convention when penning a novel. Here, though, it just makes for a muddled mess. I think I get what he was going for, though merging multiple realities and trying to explain how that was even possible didn't really sit well with me. Throwing in a bunch of techno-babble and jumping from scene to scene, instead of using the same kind of depth and feeling from other works left this entire novel feeling more like a cash grab than anything else. And no, I seriously doubt that was Robinson's intention...just saying that the entire novel didn't have the originality I thought should have carried over from the first one. And that is the other issue I had with Infinite2. Robinson's books always used to feel new and exciting and full of cool concepts that he could somehow make a reality. He found ways to keep readers engaged and feel for his characters and make us want to root for them. I didn't feel like that once while reading 2. And I fear that this has been a bit of a trend with Robinson's new novels. Gone are the deep characters with real flaws. Gone are the compelling storylines. Instead it's more violence and bloodshed and an exceptional increase in the use of "fuck". None of these things are bad in and of themselves, (hell, look at King and how he has changed his style the last decade or so), but with Robinson, its a change I don't particularly care for. I saw this trend start back with The Others (yet another Robinson novel that had promise but had the same issues as we see here), and it's continued throughout many of his new books. I still want to enjoy Robinson's work (and teases of this future stuff show some promise), but I feel i've been reading an entirely different author lately than the same one who wrote SecondWorld and the entire Nemesis books. I get that authors change and want to try new forms of writing. And I'm all for it. It's just that this time, I don't think it's working for Robinson.

    I really wish I could rate it 4.5 stars I wanted to rate this a 5 but that would make my 5 star rating of the first “Infinite” novel less meaningful. I read 30-50 books a year, mostly sci-fi. I don’t say this casually when I write that the first “Infinite” is my favorite book I’ve ever read. It strikes such an amazing chord with me. So I really don’t feel it fair to say that this book is 5 stars with that information as a qualifier.

So I really don’t feel it fair to say that this book is 5 stars with that information as a qualifier. However Jeremy states in the author’s note that he wasn’t going for a repeat of the first novel and that is completely understandable. I may have enjoyed the book a little more if I knew that going into it. I hate even writing this but it just can’t compare to the first novel. BUT, I say that more as a compliment to the fist novel and not an insult to the second. I mean how can you possibly top the first? Overall, it’s well crafted and cerebral. I enjoy Jeremy Robinson’s imagination and application of real world physics. He’s a gifted writer truly. I could go on about his other books too. Without giving away anything of the book I will say this. Don’t expect quite the same emotional intensity that the first novel offered, don’t try to guess what the big reveal may or may not be and just enjoy the ride. It’s got plenty of twists without seeming contrived or forced. If you loved the first book you’ll like this book. I’m just going to appreciate each book differently for different reasons. If you’ve read any of the author’s other novels then you may be in for a real treat. Jeremy if you read this review know this. I will continue to ponder the story in this book for some time. That is possibly my highest praise. Ive caught myself thinking about the first novel randomly in the years since I’ve read it. This end of this book, like your others, leave me feeling the way a truly good story should: sad that there are no more pages to read.

    The Master Outdoes Himself. Jeremy Robinson, the Modern Day Master of Science Fiction, truly outdoes himself here. While the first Infinite was one hell of a trippy, mind bending ride, this one still has elements of that - but also goes back to Robinson's more "bread and butter" approach of balls to the wall action.

Almost a love song to long time fans while still being completely new and approachable to even people who have never read any of his books - even Infinite - this book seemingly has more callbacks and cameos from previous Robinsonverse books than any other, *including* his actual execution of his Avengers Level Event (ALE) in PROJECT LEGION. And without going into any detail - though those who have known me for a decade now will get this reference, but most of those have already read the book in question anyway as well - let's just say that there is ONE BOOK that I ALWAYS reference whenever anyone asks me for the most terrifying book I've ever read, and it happens to be one of Robinson's. AND HE INCLUDES THAT WORLD IN THE MANY CALLBACKS IN THIS BOOK! Honestly, when I first noticed that we were back in that world, my entire body broke out in sweat and I nearly blacked out. That is how terrifying that world is - it *literally* gave me nightmares for *years* just thinking about it. And this sadistic author has the balls to go back there, *knowing* one of his most ardent fans has that level of reaction to that tale. CURSE YOU, JEREMY ROBINSON!!!! ( :D ) Still, absolutely one of the Master's best books to date, and one that even ALE 2 will have a hard time topping... IF it ever actually happens. Very much recommended.

I would recommend this to anyone who read Infinite. Definitely worth finishing out the story. Some specific notes/reviews below. SPOILERS For me the lives he was living inside the Great Escape were fun and interesting, BUT they went on a bit too long for me. Even once the Great Escape and reality merged I just felt like some of it plodded along. I got tired of battle after battle and action scene after action scene. I did a bit of skimming during these parts. The ending was great. I loved the problem solving and where the characters ended up. I like when things get wrapped up in a neat little bow and I really feel like this happened in this book. I also really appreciated the JR literary references throughout. Very meta and always made me smile!

I had to relisten several times when this book’s characters were inserted into the story. I kept thinking I’d missed something. You don’t need to read all of his books but it will make this book easier to understand. There seems to be nods to other authors as well. Gal goes nuts in the VR world as something in reality is glitching and soon reality & simulation collide. RC Bray is narrator perfection!! His bloopers at the end of the books are hilarious!! Loved it!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2+ PS - I received a free Audible copy of this book in exchange for this honest review. I’ve now purchased the lovely hardcover.

    Just as good as I had hoped it would be! Infinite, the first book, has been in my top five favorite books since I read it. This book, much like all of Robinson's works, has kept up the high quality storylines that I have come to expect. It felt so great to catch back up with Gal, Will, and Cherrybomb.

I absolutely love simulation theory and all of the concepts that entails. I love the idea of the donut universe as that is a topic I am fascinated with. I always find myself enthralled with new depictions of reality, the human condition, and how we interpret each of these ideas. Looking at our universe as just one in a series of parallel universes is absolutely astonishing to think about and visualize. I wasn't sure how the series was going to be expanded as I was left quite pleased with how the first book came to its conclusion. This one was just as awesome and left me craving to continue listening, despite having to wake up early this morning for an appointment. My time spent listening was well worth it. Mr. Robinson's author's note at the end of this book answered the exact question I was seeking an answer to, "How?" Mr. Robinson, thank you for keeping me just as hooked as you did in book one. I love the science behind this story and I am proud to call myself a member of the JR Tribe. This book can be summarized with a single word from book one, "Engage"

Just a fantastic job and you can really tell that he loves what he does. Little inflections here, speeding up and slowing down there it’s just all really adds to the experience.

    This book is FOR YOU!!! Every single Jeremey Robinson book takes you on an adventure. It also portrays the human condition and the connections we all need to survive this crazy thing we call life. This book has all of that. I am making a commitment to reading this book once a year now, until I die. Yes, it's that good. The tie ins to his other novels were breathtaking, and as I turned each page I was so excited for the next reveal. Pass this book on to everyone you know, they will thank you. This book is FOR YOU!!!

    Infinite 2 by Jeremy Robinson made me feel like I was attending a family reunion with all of my favorite relatives present. The storyline was so entertaining with the numerous references to previous Robinson books. Yet it was also intense, as there were times that I absolutely felt the stress of the constantly changing situations that Will found himself in. I loved Infinite and this was an excellent follow-up. Now it's time to start the audiobook! Infinite 2 by Jeremy Robinson made me feel like I was attending a family reunion with all of my favorite relatives present.

    Here's a novel that didn't really need a sequel and yet here it is. Infinite2 just doesn't carry itself in the same level of weightiness preferring to delve deep in Robinsonian lore, referencing most of Robinson's work, heavily playing into his more recent work, NPCs. I appreciate that it doesn't try to recreate the first novel but just lacks the weightiness of the original. Here's a novel that didn't really need a sequel and yet here it is.

    It was fine. I didn't really remember what happened in the first book and it didn't seem to matter. I prefer books that don't constantly mind bend reality via VR. The Matrix-ing of the sci fi plotlines bores me, as do constant 80s references. Those two formulae seem overdone. But people like that formula so who am I to judge? My preference is: Want to write an 80s story, write an 80s story! It was fine. I didn't really remember what happened in the first book and it didn't seem to matter.

    I was disappointed in Ready Player 2, because it really felt like I was reading the same book twice. That wasn't the case at with Infinite2. Creative, engaging, suspenseful, and funny all while making you question reality as we know it. Well done, Jeremy Robinson! (Make sure you read the author's note at the end).

    Infinite Silliness I love the sci-aspect of Infinite. Definitely one of my favorite books. Infinite 2 starts strong, then takes a turn for the implausible (very un-sci-fi), and then proceeds into the realm of unexplained, absolute ridiculousness. I’ll have to disagree that a sequel need not follow the tone and arch of the original. This was a let down for me.

    My own Great Escape Jeremy never disappoints! His books are my own Great Escape. Infinite 2 is a wild and crazy ride. And a surprisingly touching love story. I definitely recommend!

    Read this! After reading the first Infinite of course. It's not what you'd expect in a sequel, but that's what makes it so awesome. Read this! After reading the first Infinite of course. It's not what you'd expect in a sequel, but that's what makes it so awesome.

    Decent but fell short of my expectations given how great the first book was. Felt a bit repetitive at points.

    While I obviously liked the first book enough to give this one a try I just can’t recommend this one. It just didn’t really add anything and honestly felt like 75% unnecessary filler.

    Jeremy Robinson delivers again. Solid follow up to the original. Goes off the rails a bit too much to my liking but overall very enjoyable.
