This is the story of Pierre Tradivel, a scientist, and his complex battle against deadly illness, and ex-Nazi war criminal still hiding in the U.S., a crooked insurance company, and a plot to make Pierre and his wife the victims of a bizarre genetic experiment. Frameshift is hard science fiction at its best, full of complications and neat surprises.

Was a little slow getting started, but awesome once the characters and plot were set. Loved all the Canadian content which is part of the Sawyer joy! Who would think that DNA, Jewish death camps, Neatderthals and child rearing are related.

Oh, Florida! To some people it's a paradise. To others it's a punch line. As Oh, Florida! shows, it's both of these, and, more important, it's a Petri dish, producing trends that end up influencing the rest of the country. Without Florida there would be no NASCAR, no Bettie Page pinups, no Glenn Beck radio rants, no USA Today, no "Stand Your Ground" - you get the idea.

I was looking for some insight to Florida, so I could plan my upcoming trip there. This book was interesting, but not really fulfilling.

I bought this book since it was a classic, that was the original the Shangri-La concept. Unfortunately since it was more war time oriented, I lost interest, and kept skipping ahead chapter by chapter. I thought the narrator was ok, contrary to some other reviews.

Experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying the previously undetected psychopaths lurking everywhere in society. But while being cross-examined about his breakthrough in court, Jim is shocked to discover that he has lost his memories of six months of his life from 20 years previously - a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts.

Very well thought through, entertaining story on how quantum physics can save the world! I love science based fiction, and have only a superficial understanding of quantum physics. Now I have to figure out how much of this story is science and how much is fiction.
