Amazon has Lock In: A Novel of the Near Future [amazon.com] by John Scalzi for $2.99

I listened to Amber Besson's narration back in 2016 and it was decent.The novel is written from a perspective that could be male or female. Wil Wheaton did it from the male perspective (he does most of Scalzi's narration). If you are going to add Narration, you should decide which you want and get the matching audiobook from Audible, rather than adding it to the order. I'm not sure which one it picks.

Lock-In is a Sci-Fi police procedural with a unique premise. Basically a virus goes through the world and a small percentage of people are suffer from "Lock In" where their mind is fully functional, but their body cannot move. This brings about a variety of new industries to deal with the fallout.

Check it out for $2.99, the lowest price it has ever been. I've seen it periodically for this price.

FWIW
I went directly to the Wil Wheaton narrated option at Audible, and clicking the link to "buy kindle edition and get audible narration at a reduced price" brought me to your link.

Good book, really enjoyed it. I'd also spring for the narration with Wil Wheaton.

Not Scalzi's best, but a good read nonetheless. Gotta love Scalzi.

Tempting...I'm really only interested in the audiobook. Its comes to $10.48 with this deal. The audiobook alone is $13.96, but I have a few credits left. At only 10 hours, the last 2 hours of which is a separate but related novella, I can't decide if this is worth a credit or $10.48.

I never spend a credit on anything under $20. I just bought the Kindle version. If the audiobook goes on sale later then owning the Kindle will make it even cheaper.

Really unimpressed by this novel. At the end I felt like nothing really happened. And some of the technology in it is way too far fetched in a world that's supposed to be grounded in reality. edit: but Wil Wheaton was amazing as always
