Slowly, as recovery efforts continue, people realize that during the Flashforward (as it comes to be called) they experienced a vision of the future. The range of visions is astounding--those who would be asleep in the future saw psychedelic dream landscapes, while others saw nothing at all (presumably they'd be dead). But those who saw everyday life 20 years hence have to come to grips with evidence of dreams forsaken (or realized). Soon, the physicists who caused the Flashforward are struggling to help the world decide whether the future is changeable--and whether the experiment is worth repeating. Robert J. Sawyer has captured a truly compelling idea with Flashforward, and he fully explores what such an event might mean to humanity. Fans will find this to be his best work to date, although the ending seems rushed after a detailed buildup. --Therese Littleton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
A very interesting book, well written.
I felt the author spent too much time explaining scientific theories, technology, etc. and not enough time advancing the plot or making it interesting.
I am not saying this so that you can avoid the possibility of learning something you shouldn't know about what's coming up in the series.
This book is fantastic! I loved how it delved into the realm of particle physics. The author manages to explain these concepts in a way that doesn't leave you feeling confused.Published 1 month ago by Melinda S Osborne

The moral to the story is: If you've written a great, thought-provoking science fiction novel, don't let a TV producer get its hands on it. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Barbara Frederick
Good one. I saw TV series before. I want to know how it ends. The original novel is truely scientific, rather than exciting,roller coasting. It reminds me of H.G. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Kaneo Okutsu
Good story line with interesting twists. Although, the author seems to have a little problem writing so many people and history for each.Published 5 months ago by Omar Millard
