I heard about this book from Leo LaPorte on his podcasts. It seemed interesting so I gave it a go. Damn good book, Leo was right! Even though this book is supposed to be fiction, it seems like it could happen in today's highly computerized world. I 'read' the book over two days while driving cross country. I was so impressed with it I am downloading the sequel, Freedom (TM). Leo, are you listening? This is written in the style of Dan Brown on a good day. Totally riveting.
This is Daniel Suarez' 4th book. I am at Chapter 15 of 22. For some reason I have an easier time believing in a lone Time Lord from Gallifrey traveling the universe in a TARDIS than I do with the plot line of Influx.
Written with typical Suarez style and grace. I might revise this once I finish the last 2 hours and 24 minutes. In the meantime I call this a noble effort and a rather long execution, not the equal to the first 3 books.
Mr Gurner and Daniel Suarez need to be joined at the hip for all future efforts. One needs the other.
It's different and the plot is more fantasy than science fiction, IMHO. Worth listening to, yes. A plausible plot and story, not yet.
Mr Suarez is 3 for 4. I look forward to #5.
I prefer audio books to printed media.
Lame. There is presented a contrast to the before time travel era and post time travel. While I respect the author's desire to shock and contrast the differences, I found it implausible. The correction of the situation felt like a better way to end the story without needing the first post time travel story. Still an interesting way to tell the story of 'don't mess with time'.
All scenes with Sadie in Dallas.
Yes if it was humanly possible!
This is my first Stephen King book. It is also the first book I have read before Leo LaPorte has recommended it on TWiT. This strikes me as a bit more complicated of a book than first impressions give and will require a second reading. My initial impression is that the secondary story lines are padded out a bit too much and the ending is a tad lacking in proper story telling. Overall this novel reminds me of Groundhog Day mixed with Back To The Future. The subject of time travel is not new. To combine it with the murder of JFK is, no pun intended, a novel idea. The 30 hours of reading time went by fast thanks to the narration of Craig Wasson. I will be looking for more titles that he has narrated. If this were a college term paper I would view it as a
