Afterparty

Afterparty - Daryl Gregory My full Afterparty audiobook review can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

Afterparty is set in a believable and recognizable possible future world were anyone can print drugs from their PC. But the really good drugs can still create empires. A group of scientists get together to create a remarkable new drug, with unforeseen side effects. What if after overdosing on this new drug, you now have your personal God living in your head with you, except you think it is real? We are then taken on a psychedelic and psychotic road trip across the continent, full of flashbacks and and things I just wasn't sure about.

So that is the very basic storyline here but there is so much more that is difficult to put into words. There were time I thought I went back in time while staying in the future, yet feel odd no matter where I was. Gregory has created a true mindf**k. The scariest part was that I could relate to several of the schizophrenic characters, maybe that is saying too much about me and my past?

There were time that I had no idea what was happening, thinking that some one in the office spiked the coffee. There were time were I had to stop listening to get solid footing in reality. There were times I was on the edge of my seat with my heart pounding. You need to listen to Afterparty if you want a truly original science fiction thrill ride.
