Summary: Would you ever travel forward in time if you knew it was a one-way trip?  Mr. Martin James has no such desire, but after being infected with a mysterious drug against his will, Martin hurtles through the years.  This cruel twist of fate forces him to watch his children grow up and his wife grow old in a matter of days.  Only an elusive group of scientists have the ability to stop his nightmarish journey; the very people who injected him in the first place.  And while Martin James hopes to find a cure before everyone he loses is gone, others are uncertain if his journey can be stopped at all.
            W Lawrence weaves a future history 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.

There is so much I want to say on this book, but every time I begin, I find I am giving away too much information.  This is an incredible story that immediately pulls you in with an adventure from start to finish.  The way this guy writes is amazing and I can't wait to read more from him.   Once I picked this book up, I just could not put it down.

The information on communication and body language that he offers at the beginning was very interesting and I like the way it is all explained to us, including the situation.  He does it all so fluently that it just flows perfectly into one amazing story.  Definitely one of my favorites this year - and one I recommend to anyone who enjoys dystopian, science fiction and time travel.
