Publisher's Summary

Travel to the future - it will cost you only everyone you love.
Attacked and injected with a drug that slows his metabolism to a fraction of normal, Martin James becomes an unwilling time traveler who hurtles through the years. His children grow up, his wife grows older, and his only hope is finding the people who injected him in the first place - not an easy task when one day for Martin lasts four years. And while Martin James strives to find a cure before everyone he loves is gone, others are uncertain if his journey can be stopped at all.
W. Lawrence weaves a dystopian future filled with the best and worst of humanity, highlights the blessings and curses of technology, and pushes the limits of faith and hopelessness. Above all, Syncing Forward is a tale of one man's love for his family and their devotion to saving him from being lost forever.

The publisher's summary should've tipped me off...

What can I say? This book was extremely well-written, thought-provoking, and RELENTLESSLY depressing. I can hardly fault the author for weaving a tale that so effectively tugged at the heart strings, but had I realized the emotional weight of this book before purchasing, I would've passed on it. That being said, if you enjoy (or can get past) a heavy sprinkling of gloom in your reading, everything else about the book is fantastic! A terrifying and absolutely plausible glimpse into our near future.

Time you synced your credits on this one!

What did you love best about Syncing Forward?

The entire concept, the paradoxes that existed, the situation the principle character found himself in, are all original and thoughtful.


What did you like best about this story?

The progress of the characters as time moves forward. Fascinating study in aging, family relationships, and a whole litany of other challenges. Totally original.


Have you listened to any of Will Damron’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I honestly can't recall any particular ones, but he nails this one. Outstanding work!


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Is Time Real?


Any additional comments?

I obtained this book in exchange for a fair and independent review from Audioblast. I was planning on downloading it directly from Audible anyway, so perfect timing!
This is such an original offering that admittedly starts slowly but builds towards a powerful conclusion, with many concepts exposed throughout.

Absolutely worth the credit and highly recommended.
