Summary

On the eve of a secret military operation, an assassin's bullet strikes President Seth Jerrison. He is rushed to the hospital, where surgeons struggle to save his life. At the same hospital, researcher Dr. Ranjip Singh is experimenting with a device that can erase traumatic memories.
Then a terrorist bomb detonates. In the operating room, the president suffers cardiac arrest. He has a near-death experience - but the memories that flash through Jerrison's mind are not his memories.
It quickly becomes clear that the electromagnetic pulse generated by the bomb amplified and scrambled Dr. Singh's equipment, allowing a random group of people to access one another's minds.
And now one of those people has access to the president's memories - including classified information regarding the upcoming military mission, which, if revealed, could cost countless lives. But the task of determining who has switched memories with whom is a daunting one - particularly when some of the people involved have reason to lie....

Very hard going

I really like Robert J Sawyer and thought that The Terminal Experiment was inspired. I was looking forward to listening to Triggers but by the 4th hour of the story was wishing for it to end. I thought the narrator was very good. Robert Sawyer tells us at the beginning of the book that he is changing his writing style to favour the TV genre that brought us the TV series "Flash Foward" I wish he hadn't! To me it felt like the story was being made up as he went along and there were many threads that had no relevence to the plot or in fact the story. The whole book was rather far fetched and quite claustrophobic (especially the hours spent in the hospital.) My favourite part of this story was when the credits started at the end. I had to listen to it all though so I suppose that does say something.

Fun Read

This a fun book that has some interesting concepts and is well written. The narrator was pleasant to listen to and I found myself listening to the whole book in one sitting.

loved This Book

I loved the action in this book There was a feeling of 24 in the beginning of this book.
i loved the idea of being connected to someone's knowledge and thoughts.

I have read several of Robert J. Sawyer's books, and what i can say that all his books have an ending that shows how the world is changed in a lot of ways.

highly recommended
