Product description

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""
