Through a mandatory assessment for work, he became eligible to participate in scientific experimentation that would ultimately alter his past and enhance his memories, as well as his perception. He began living the life that he never thought would have existed; prestige, money and power. However, Timothy’s new lifestyle would not be without repercussions.
This story was out of this world, literally. To be honest, scientific novels have not been on my list of go-to-reads. However, this book was amazing! I couldn’t put my kindle down once I started to read this story. I really enjoyed the author’s creativity along with his wordsmanship. Together these two elements painted a vivid picture of details that I was able to imagine while reading. It was interesting to read about retro-causality and how it shaped the future in this novel. There have been theories regarding technology such as man is going to outdo himself and technology will be the downfall of mankind. Scientists have performed breakthrough creations such as artificial intelligence, which is the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. This novel puts a twist on this theory. Rhetorically speaking, will this become the future? It’s enough to make readers put on their thinking caps
