The information on communication and body language that he offers at the beginning was very interesting and I like the way it is all explained to us, inclu ...more
I am not sure how to discuss this book without giving away plot points....This is probably the saddest book I have read in years. This book rips your heart out, stomps on it....presents it back to you stitches up your chest and just as it begins to beat rips it out again.
Some books are fun, Some books are over the top, Some are mysterious, Some are boring....This book although I would categorize in the highest of sci-fi thriller...at its heart it is about an everyman dealing w ...more
For me, it's a novel about the human side of time travel. Not the "feeling dizzy" stuff from H.G. Wells' The Time Machine, but that of zooming forwards in time and missing time spent growing up with your family. The emotional stuff. The stu ...more
The year is 2021, while investigating something for his company Martin James is injected with drugs that slows his body down so much that his seconds are months to us and every time he goes back under it is years before he awakens again. The people who did this to him have the cure but they can't be found.
This is not your time machine time travel. Imagine waking up t ...more
When I started this book I didn’t know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised.
Martin James is a very intelligent and intuitive man trying to figure out who is stealing supplies from his company. During his interviews of the suspects things go terribly awry. One of the suspects takes pity on him and begins to inject him with a drug but is thwarted in his efforts to complete the dosage. This begins Martin on a ...more
If you think traditional family values can save the world even unto the far future, this book is for you. (Lord knows they've been doing a bang up job so far.) But even if you are a cynic, the originality of the storyline will keep you immersed, despite the occasional liberal fist shake to the gods.
My biggest problem with the work is that the nature of the hero's ...more
There were a few times in the book where I felt the proofread had gone a little astray but that's only a small moot point though.
Great novel, well done.
I didn't expect much.
I was pleasantly surprised. I tore through this book in less than 24 hours and am so sad its over!

I'll start this review off by saying that I received this paperback book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. I couldn't be happier. The book sucked me in and had me traveling right along with the character. The book starts out with our main character, Martin, undergoing an investigation at the pharmaceutical company he works for, and he is conducting interviews of possible suspects in the investigation. Truthfully, this intro stumped me and I wasn't sur ...more
Martin James works in Security for a very big pharmaceutical company. He has a natural talent for the job and usually has everything under control, but everything falls apart when he interviews several employees who seem to be working on something illegal. The wrong question at the wrong time causes Martin to be kidnapped by this band and injected an unknown substance, which Martin will soon discover, makes him slow down until the ...more
I'm sorry if I made you Google that word, I myself stumbled across it no more than a couple of minutes ago. ;)
I received this book as a 'Goodreads - First Reads' and this was the first time I won a giveaway (I was darn excited).
My first impression of this book was that it's going to be just like other mainstream books in the market but I was wrong. This book is phenomenal. Once you start readi ...more
In W. Laurence’s new novel Syncing Forward, the protagonist Martin James is investigating possible theft and espionage when he’s injected with a drug that slows his body down so much he finds himself unstuck in time. He’s able to realign with everyone else for short bursts of time. What seems like a day for James is months for everyone else, which naturally strains his personal and family relationships, as well as his search for a cure. I enjoy well written timetravel, when it’s more about how h ...more
My only criticism is that it seemed to drag a bit through the middle...possibly because it covered such a ...more
Early man walked away
As modern man took control
Their minds weren't all the same
To conquer was his big goal
So he built his great empire
And he slaughtered his own kind
He died a confused man
Killed himself with his own mind

Lawrence has written a book that truly deserves the sometimes-overused term, "thought provoking". Believable human characterization wrapping a view of the near-future.
As a bonus to those of us who miss the days when books were actually proofread, Syncing Forward is published with excellent grammar and spelling. Highly recommended!
