It's family night at the Dessen household, but at the insistence of his wife Jason Dessen leaves to go to a local bar for a drink where his friend is celebrating. On his way back Jason is threatened by a masked abductor and forced to drive to a remote location where he is then knocked unconscious. He wakes up to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits - strangers that know him and are extremely happy to see him. Jason begins to understand that this life he has woken up to is not the one he's been living in for the last fifteen years. His wife is not his wife, his son was never born, and Jason himself is not the ordinary college physics professor he used to be. Instead he is an incredible genius who has achieved something unbelievable. But he wants his old life back and he'll do whatever it takes to go back to that.
I can probably count on one hand how many sci-fi books I've read. This one sounded too good to not check out. And I'm happy to say I was not disappointed! This book was interesting and complex. The characters, the situations, the writing - everything felt so real that it was like I was actually a part of Jason's worlds.
