Product description

Review

'Robert J. Sawyer has proven himself to be a writer of boundless confidence and bold scientific extrapolation.' -- New York Times

'A new Robert J. Sawyer book is always cause for celebration.' -- Analog Magazine
--This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Review

"A fast-paced sci-fi thriller."--The Washington Post

"Mind-blowing...What Sawyer does, possibly better than anyone else, is take a new scientific theory and extrapolate its real-world effects to their logical extremes. Then he tosses some Canadian,
Star Trek-quoting academics at it to see what happens."--The Daytona Beach News-Journal

"A fast-moving, mind-stretching exploration of the nature of personality and consciousness; it balances esoteric speculation with action and character...and the political/media references keep the story uncomfortably close to present-day fears."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"It's been way, way too long since Robert J. Sawyer unleashed one of his thought-provoking high-concept books on us. And this time, he's asking deep questions about the nature of consciousness."--io9

"Absolutely fascinating, thought provoking, and a ripping good read to boot...A great blend of the scientific with the fantastic, with a philosophically and scientifically compelling hook, I put Quantum Night up among my favorite of Sawyer's work, and one of the better sci-fi novels I've read. Great stuff."--Strange Currencies

"What a great, provocative read! From quantum physics to the philosophy of mind, Sawyer's latest novel will leave you pondering deep questions long after you turn the final page."--Dan Falk, author of The Science of Shakespeare

--This text refers to the mass_market edition.
