Imagine a world in which every human being falls asleep at exactly the same moment—and awakens with detailed knowledge of what happens twenty years in the future. In visionary science-fiction writer Sawyer's latest thriller, this unsettling event occurs when a secret experiment goes awry and forever alters the world as we know it. Sadly, narrator Mark Deakins brings little theatricality to the production and plays every character with the same disinterested tone. The result is a performance that fails to capture the drama of the story that it relates. Deakins sounds far too restrained for such an imaginative tale.
