Descripción del producto
With such compelling and provocative novels as Red Planet Blues, FlashForward, and The WWW Trilogy, Robert J. Sawyer has proven himself to be "a writer of boundless confidence and bold scientific extrapolation" (The New York Times). Now, the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author explores the thin line between good and evil that every human being is capable of crossing....
Experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying the previously undetected psychopaths lurking everywhere in society. But while being cross-examined about his breakthrough in court, Jim is shocked to discover that he has lost his memories of six months of his life from 20 years previously - a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts.
Jim is reunited with Kayla Huron, his forgotten girlfriend from his lost period and now a quantum physicist who has made a stunning discovery about the nature of human consciousness. As a rising tide of violence and hate sweeps across the globe, the psychologist and the physicist combine forces in a race against time to see if they can do the impossible - change human nature - before the entire world descends into darkness.

I made a real point to avoid reviews or anything even remotely about this book before I read it.
It's set in the near future, bouncing back to newly-discovered memories of the main character, Jim Marchuk. The story follows Marchuk as he makes discoveries about both people in general (why are some people psychopaths? Why do others seem to simply follow the crowd?) and about himself specifically. I'm not a good reviewer, so I can only tell you that the book held my interest completely, all the way through, and left me lying awake after finishing it, wondering where I would fit in, in this world of quantum states of consciousness. Am I what I would like to think?
One reviewer noted that politics had intruded into the story, and he found that distasteful, but in this story, politics are virtually required... the world can be greatly impacted by the actions of a very few, and how that could change for the better or worse was an integral part of the story.
My best indicator of whether a book gets five stars is whether I will read it again. This one will be on my required repeat reading list, for various reasons. Plus for the first time, Sawyer added a bibliography. Based on the questions that arise in this book, some of those things will be added to my reading list as well.
Well done, Mr. Sawyer! Well done!
still. it made me think. and great sci-fi fantasy does just that. it forces you to face what you might not want to confront and make a decision. so yeah, more than worth the read. if you haven't read his work, hurry up and read all of it!
If you've ever been concerned that the rich and powerful, who control much of what happens to the rest of us, seem to exhibit many of the traits of psychopaths, this is the book for you. Psychologists and quantum physicists team up to address this problem in a unique way on a global scale.
