Visiting Grandpa's Brain Reviews
*Audio Review I don't even know how many audios I've reviewed by Jason Werbeloff, but I won't stop till he stops sending them to me! Narrated by Mark Ryan Rees, Visiting Grandpa's Brain is a story on how your brain can be turned into a search engine. But not just any engine- Zoogle!In this story, a young woman's grandpa was one of the first to donate his brain for the universal search engine. But, after the apocalypse, the Vatican took over, even the internet industry. And they've placed Jesus in front of everything- forcing their religious belief's on the world- and the donated brains of Zoogle. So Grandpa decides to do something about it! This one wasn't as big as the other stories by Werbeloff, but I liked it. First off, that the world was run by Jesus- the internet! Calling your system Jesus is weird, but I understood for the story. And the way the solution was taken to fix the problem- crazy! Just how far would you go to make your dead grandpa happy? It's a short listen, less than 20-minutes. If you'd like, go right ahead and do it now! I won't mind. On to the next book! ?*For the full review: http://tinyurl.com/halrgquJason Werbeloff**Audiobook from author, Jason Werbeloff & SoundCloud.com, for an honest review.
Great short story set in the future about the continuing major influence of organised religion and the power of the internet. I liked this, it made me think of China and the control they have over search engines and the internet just now.Grandpa volunteered to be a part of Zoogle thinking that he was going to be helping mankind, not signing up to be a Vatican pawn. I loved the fact that Grandpa spoke through Keanu Reeves' lips as it brought up the Matrix films with the real world being cleverly concealed behind the false. The public couldn't see the real as they were being led into how to live via false media. Nothing changes really!Jason Werbeloff is a fascinating writer with an intelligent and slightly skew-whiff mindset. You never know what's coming next.Witty, fun, well-written, and just a wee bit terrifying!
This is a great little short story, that manages to skewer religion, and technology at the same time. Grandpa has donated his brain to Zoogle (yeah made me smile), to be part of a massive Vatican mainframe. But things aren't quite what he thinks they are going to be. Talking to his grand-daughter through Keanu Reeves while she's watching the matrix, a plan is hatched. This is a wonderful little short, filled with humour, and a deft touch. I've always preferred the rapier to the bludgeon
Sloppy and confusingThe story moves to fast to the climax. There really is no insight to the world or why any of what's happening has a reason. You get most of what's happening at the end with no explanation leaving you wonder why isn't he telling us more. The backdrop is more interesting then the actual story which since we don't have any info about seems out of place. If we don't know about the world in a story like this we can't discern a real meaning or connection
I liked this story right up until the end. I was looking forward to how it was going to finish, because Mr. Werbeloff hasn't disappointed me yet, but it just fizzed. I would have liked to see it expanded on a wee bit more. While I probably wouldn't recommend this story, I would definitely recommend this author and all his other tales.
Once again, Jason Werbeloff has come up with an original, interesting story. I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.
