Publisher's Summary

Travel to the future - it will only cost you 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.

Good concept but unremittingly bleak

I was interested in the ideas and characters in this book but found that I was worn down by the constant barrage of bad news and misfortune for the characters. There was never any hope or redemption. Hard to listen to.

Refreshingly Original

What did you like most about Syncing Forward?

The originality of the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The protagonist's eldest daughter. She is a very believable yet complex character.

What does Will Damron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I don't usually like narration that has a slow tempo but Damron's slowish style was never sluggish. It seemed perfectly paced and in a strange way was a perfect match for the fast paced environment of the book. He did an excellent job and though I have a few favourite narrators on Audible I really don't think anyone would have done a better job. Damion was a perfect choice for this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely. I actually listened to it in 2 sittings.

Any additional comments?

I may be wrong but after reading and listening to many hundreds of books (probably closer to thousands) over the years I've never came across one quite like this. It retains its originality throughout while still using the tried-and-tested formulas for character building, interpersonal relationships and drama that you'd expect from a good book. The book was brilliantly written and excellently narrated. It has made me want to hear more from both the author and the narrator. Well done Audible for bringing this book to your listeners.
