Book Description


See all titles by Dan Simmons.

The United States is near total collapse. But 87% of the population doesn't care: they're addicted to flashback, a drug that allows its users to re-experience the best moments of their lives. After ex-detective Nick Bottom's wife died in a car accident, he went under the flash to be with her; he's lost his job, his teenage son, and his livelihood as a result.

Nick may be a lost soul but he's still a good cop, so he is hired to investigate the murder of a top governmental advisor's son. This flashback-addict becomes the one man who may be able to change the course of an entire nation turning away from the future to live in the past.

A provocative novel set in a future that seems scarily possible, FLASHBACK proves why Dan Simmons is one of our most exciting and versatile writers.

3 of 5 Sci-Fi or Political Essay? November 4, 2012
Reviewer: Bill S from Bakersfield, CA United States  
This sounded like an interesting sci-fi idea.  Much of the country is addicted to a drug that allows them to  flash back to the best parts of their lives.  This plays only a minor role in the story.

Flashback is a dystopian novel that looks at the US following its collapse beginning with Obama being elected in 2008.  We find the US overrun by the Japanese (not the Chinese) and an Islamic Caliphate.

The downfall began with the bankruptcy of the United States.  Soon after Israel is destroyed by a nuclear attack (all told in the present, looking back).  Then, the US is invaded, Sharia Law is implemented, a giant mosque is built at ground zero...and the list goes on.  Basically if Glenn Beck at  some point scared a Tea Party member with it, it is included in this book.

I have no problem with political thrillers or even books with a clear agenda, the problem with this one is the agenda is clear enough, only you have to read the book (or this review) to know what that agenda is.
