Flashback | Dan Simmons
3 posts | 10 read | 15 to read
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.

A dystopian thriller set in a future where the U.S. is near total collapse, and most of the population is addicted to a drug called Flashback.
The tone of this story was heavy. It took a bit to get through. It was well written. The murder investigation conducted by the MC, Nick Bottom-ex detective and flashback addict-kept me going to the end.

Dan Simmons is another great horror writer, and this book is right up my alley. This is set in a distant future where America is in thrall to a drug called flashback, and it seems eerily possible so i wanna read this!! #horror #horrorfiction #booknerd #horrorstory #read #booklover #bookaddict #read #retro #litsyreads #booknerd #love #books
