Flashforwardby Robert J. Sawyer
Synopses & Reviews
The basis for the hit ABC TV series and the Aurora Award-winning novel that started it all!
Two minutes and seventeen seconds that changed the world
Suddenly, without warning, all seven billion people on Earth black out for more than two minutes. Millions die as planes fall from the sky, people tumble down staircases, and cars plow into each other.
But that’s the least of the survivors’ challenges. During the blackout, everyone experienced a glimpse of what his or her future holds—and the interlocking mosaic of these visions threatens to unravel the present.
An experiment into an elusive nuclear particle veers off course and for a few moments, the consciousness of the entire human race is thrown forward about twenty years, giving everyone a glimpse of their own future.
Robert J. Sawyers 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 ballot
