bookshelves: time-travel

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 human relationships are affected than technobabbling about how the time machine works. In this case, time travel was more of a mechanic to tell a story, or really two stories, one about what happens to James’ family as a result of this, and another about James’ search for the antidote and the various organizations involved in keeping it away from him.
