Publisher Description

Robert J. Sawyer's award-winning science fiction has garnered both popular and critical acclaim. The New York Times Book Review called Frameshift "filled to bursting with ideas, characters and incidents". His novels are fixtures on the Hugo and Nebula ballots. Sawyer now brings us Flashforward, the story of a world-shattering discovery. In pursuit of an elusive nuclear particle, an experiment goes incredibly awry, and, for a few moments, the consciousness of the entire human race is thrown ahead by about twenty years. As the implications truly hit home, the pressure to repeat the experiment builds. Everyone wants a glimpse of their future, a chance to flashforward and see their successes ... or learn how to avoid their failures. Winner of the Aurora Award and the basis for the hit ABC television series.

Great book!

This novel is a compelling statement on free will. Is it just an illusion? Do we, humans, really have the ability to make a choice? To choose the left over the right path when we come to a fork in the road? Or is every decision we make already made? In Sawyer's novel a glimpse into the future has the characters struggling to determine if in fact they can change the future, and he does so in such a way that you are along for the ride the entire time! Do check out this book, it is a quick read and very thought provoking!

Great book and TV show!

This is an inventive and riveting book which inspired a TV show on ABC. Read and watch them both as they are the Sam events from different perspectives.
