If you're not a Sanderson fan already, frankly, I'd start out with the Mistborn novels or The Emperor's Soul, though, and not Snapshot. This story is much different from Sanderson's usual fare. While this has a Bladerunner/Minority Report aftertaste for me, it's not quite up to his usual standards. Or maybe it was just too short. 4.5 stars.
I thought I knew what was happening and what the reveal would be but again I missed it and was totally wrong. This reminds me of an episode out of the Twilight Zone or Tales from the Crypt that leaves you a little off center and pondering the reveal at the end.
The premise is interesting. A few cops work in a recreation of a day. Everything is recreated the people, their interactions with others, the vehicles, everything down to the coffee and burritos. Crime scenes are monitored and witnessed to help cops in the Real World find the evidence needed to convict criminals. This is a day in the life of two of those cops and what they find out is amazing.
The end threw me for a loop and I again bow down to the masterful imagination and writing brilliance that is Brandon Sanderson.
Audio Note: This was a quick listen and like all of Sanderson's books the Audio was fantastic.
The two cops were quite believable which is critical for the reader to buy into the world the story takes place in. Nothing is real, it's a snapshot of a single day in the city, recreated so two cops can go back in time to find clues to solve crimes back in IRL - In Real Life. The problem is, their very presence changes what happened during the day they have been sent to investigate.
There are plenty of twists and the story moves quickly as do the changes in the people occupying the story. Great read for an evening or if your a passenger on a drive lasting several hours.
