    In a word: Whoa! Edge-of-your-seat crime fiction that bends both time and mind. Think True Detective meets 12 Monkeys. Throw in the end of the world and you can begin to imagine where this gut-twisting tale will take you. This is cross-genre fiction at its best. ...

    If there is one book that I feel inadequate to review, it's The Gone World, because it's so mind-blowing fascinating and sometimes a bit too much for my little brain to take it, but at least I think I grasped most of what was going on in the book. Still, it's hard to review that left y...

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/02/01/... The Gone World follows protagonist Shannon Moss, who belongs to a top-secret division within the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. On paper, her job is to investigate any criminal activities involving m...

    I wanted to read this because of the story that Neill Blomkamp is adapting it into a film, as well as the fact that Sweterlitsch has served as co-writer on a number of Blomkamp?s Oats Studios projects. I mention this first because The Gone World, being pretty high-concept sci-fi, is ...

    Deep Space. Deep time. In the future there isn't much in the universe outside of the reach of humanity.....even time. Shannon Moss is part of a secret branch of the NCIS that travels in time, investigating possible futures and the Terminus....an event in the future that might cause the...

    The Gone World is a breathtaking journey of literary imagination. Beautifully written, deeply layered, and most importantly mind-boggling. It?s a procedural detective story about a NCIS investigator Shannon Moss looking into a brutal bloody murder of a family in a house where her bes...

    3.5-4 stars I struggled reading this book and am struggling writing the review. I loved the concept of the story but didn?t totally love the execution. I am always intrigued with time travel, and I felt that the portion of the book dealing with that was fabulous. Sweterlitsch clea...

    At some indeterminate point in Earth's future, two suns will appear in the sky. One of them is a white hole which will cause the Terminus, at which point all human life on Earth will cease (or at least cease to be relevant). Special Agent Shannon Moss is with the Naval Criminal Investi...

    ?Merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.? I often struggle to emotionally connect with characters if they are placed in an over worn plot in a common genre. This book transcends genre and I have never read anything remotely similar to this - despite the fact that I?ve read 140 ...

    3.5* Moss works for a special division of NCIS. She has this weird ability to jump about time, to solve a murder mystery. At the back of her mind is the thought of the world ending. This end of the world concept is called The Terminus. When she returns back from the future she realise...

    Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from Edelweiss for review consideration. The Gone World was hard to write up a review for. On one hand, it was absolutely breathtaking in it?s scope and imagination. On the other, I never had the desire to read the book for more than fift...

    The Gone World is a unique blend of science fiction and crime thriller unlike anything I've ever read. I loved this book. It was complicated, mind-blowing, fascinating and just so damn fun. Not to mention a little scary, but in the best way. This book is heavy on the science and physic...

    **5 Goodreads Stars** "And many sailors who have seen Deep Space return hollowed, overwhelmed by the immensity of the cosmos. The totality of human endeavor is nothing when set against the stars." "There is no design. The universe isn't kind or cruel. The universe is vast and ...

    This is one of the best books I've read and I highly recommend it. You can check out my review here ---> https://wp.me/p5t5Tf-1n9 ...

    Pour yourself a stout and tell everyone to go away because this is a must read for sci fi geeks in 2018. The beginning of this book totally drew me in with something bizarre happening in the future. Then the next chapter presents a murder mystery that takes place in the eighties wh...

    An excellent mindboggling and jawdropping time-travelling thriller. Rich in conundrums and paradoxes, with some really intriguing concepts regarding the nature of reality and existence. Also an enjoyable apocalyptic element along with some moments of horror and wonder. Bits flew over m...

    WTF? I have no idea what went on in this book - and I am willing to consider that it's a bit over my head but really... there is murder mystery wrapped in a time-travel paradox wrapped in a pending apocalypse all a jumble. I kept reading hoping for it to make some sense but alas I e...

    Fascinating premise and a strong plot but it's endlessly confusing. So many alternate timelines end up muddling the plot. It was an experience. ...

    Part of me wants to rate this a 3, but on the other hand this an amazing mind blowing time traveling crime story. ...

    Tom Sweterlitsch takes three well worn sub-genres, the procedural murder mystery, time travel adventure and apocalyptic fiction and twists them into a miasma of something truly original. Sweterlitsch has created a tale full of dark imagery. He creates settings like a visual artist, hau...

    Anyone who loved watching the X-Files, Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, or time travel shows will love this book! We follow Shannon Moss, a detective with more weight on her shoulders than Atlas carrying the world. She works for the NCIS, but she has the ability to hop into a governm...

    I wanted so badly to love this novel. It had such a fantastic story line and I'm a sucker for strong female characters. However, this novel and I just didn't work well. I found it a bit slow at times, which stopped me from really getting into the story. I also found that the way it was...

    https://lynns-books.com/2018/02/15/th... Hailed as Inception meets True Detective Tom Sweterlitsch?s Gone World is a dark and fairly brutal thriller with a modern day setting where sci fi has made the impossible possible. This is a clever read indeed and one that definitely needs...

    I'm in a bit of a predicament here: I have to take this book back to the library today, because it's already three days overdue. This means I have to review it now. However, I'm pretty much speechless gob-smacked, and won't be able to write an intelligent critique for...at least a week...

    Good book, good story, totally ok, didn't love it. An interesting take on the typical time travel idea and, without getting to heavily into spoiler territory, it managed to make time travel seem like a semi realistic proposition with plausible effects. Personally though, I found th...

    Time-travel detective plot with something of a horror kick to it. The blurb of "Inception + True Detective" isn't that far off. I really dug it; it's a deeply dark book that takes it's sci-fi bent seriously. It's also a total page turner. It's very light in terms of complexity; you're ...

    If there is one book that I feel inadequate to review, it's The Gone World, because it's so mind-blowing fascinating and sometimes a bit too much for my little brain to take it, but at least I think I grasped most of what was going on in the book. Still, it's hard to review that left y...

    I wanted to read this because of the story that Neill Blomkamp is adapting it into a film, as well as the fact that Sweterlitsch has served as co-writer on a number of Blomkamp?s Oats Studios projects. I mention this first because The Gone World, being pretty high-concept sci-fi, is ...

    Deep Space. Deep time. In the future there isn't much in the universe outside of the reach of humanity.....even time. Shannon Moss is part of a secret branch of the NCIS that travels in time, investigating possible futures and the Terminus....an event in the future that might cause the...

    The Gone World is a breathtaking journey of literary imagination. Beautifully written, deeply layered, and most importantly mind-boggling. It?s a procedural detective story about a NCIS investigator Shannon Moss looking into a brutal bloody murder of a family in a house where her bes...

    3.5-4 stars I struggled reading this book and am struggling writing the review. I loved the concept of the story but didn?t totally love the execution. I am always intrigued with time travel, and I felt that the portion of the book dealing with that was fabulous. Sweterlitsch clea...

    At some indeterminate point in Earth's future, two suns will appear in the sky. One of them is a white hole which will cause the Terminus, at which point all human life on Earth will cease (or at least cease to be relevant). Special Agent Shannon Moss is with the Naval Criminal Investi...

    3.5* Moss works for a special division of NCIS. She has this weird ability to jump about time, to solve a murder mystery. At the back of her mind is the thought of the world ending. This end of the world concept is called The Terminus. When she returns back from the future she realise...

    The Gone World is a unique blend of science fiction and crime thriller unlike anything I've ever read. I loved this book. It was complicated, mind-blowing, fascinating and just so damn fun. Not to mention a little scary, but in the best way. This book is heavy on the science and physic...

    3.5* Moss works for a special division of NCIS. She has this weird ability to jump about time, to solve a murder mystery. At the back of her mind is the thought of the world ending. This end of the world concept is called The Terminus. When she returns back from the future she realise...

    The Gone World is a unique blend of science fiction and crime thriller unlike anything I've ever read. I loved this book. It was complicated, mind-blowing, fascinating and just so damn fun. Not to mention a little scary, but in the best way. This book is heavy on the science and physic...

    In a word: Whoa! Edge-of-your-seat crime fiction that bends both time and mind. Think True Detective meets 12 Monkeys. Throw in the end of the world and you can begin to imagine where this gut-twisting tale will take you. This is cross-genre fiction at its best. ...

    Tom Sweterlitsch takes three well worn sub-genres, the procedural murder mystery, time travel adventure and apocalyptic fiction and twists them into a miasma of something truly original. Sweterlitsch has created a tale full of dark imagery. He creates settings like a visual artist, hau...

    Anyone who loved watching the X-Files, Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, or time travel shows will love this book! We follow Shannon Moss, a detective with more weight on her shoulders than Atlas carrying the world. She works for the NCIS, but she has the ability to hop into a governm...

    I wanted so badly to love this novel. It had such a fantastic story line and I'm a sucker for strong female characters. However, this novel and I just didn't work well. I found it a bit slow at times, which stopped me from really getting into the story. I also found that the way it was...

    Some novels take their time to build; some start with a sprint and keep going from there. The Gone World by Tom Sweterlitsch falls in the second category. The prologue packs a ton of ideas and hooked me immediately. It set a very high standard that the rest of the book surpassed. Mr. S...

    I'm in a bit of a predicament here: I have to take this book back to the library today, because it's already three days overdue. This means I have to review it now. However, I'm pretty much speechless gob-smacked, and won't be able to write an intelligent critique for...at least a week...

    I wanted to read this because of the story that Neill Blomkamp is adapting it into a film, as well as the fact that Sweterlitsch has served as co-writer on a number of Blomkamp?s Oats Studios projects. I mention this first because The Gone World, being pretty high-concept sci-fi, is ...

    Deep Space. Deep time. In the future there isn't much in the universe outside of the reach of humanity.....even time. Shannon Moss is part of a secret branch of the NCIS that travels in time, investigating possible futures and the Terminus....an event in the future that might cause the...

    The Gone World is a breathtaking journey of literary imagination. Beautifully written, deeply layered, and most importantly mind-boggling. It?s a procedural detective story about a NCIS investigator Shannon Moss looking into a brutal bloody murder of a family in a house where her bes...

    3.5-4 stars I struggled reading this book and am struggling writing the review. I loved the concept of the story but didn?t totally love the execution. I am always intrigued with time travel, and I felt that the portion of the book dealing with that was fabulous. Sweterlitsch clea...

    3.5* Moss works for a special division of NCIS. She has this weird ability to jump about time, to solve a murder mystery. At the back of her mind is the thought of the world ending. This end of the world concept is called The Terminus. When she returns back from the future she realise...

    Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from Edelweiss for review consideration. The Gone World was hard to write up a review for. On one hand, it was absolutely breathtaking in it?s scope and imagination. On the other, I never had the desire to read the book for more than fift...

    The Gone World is a unique blend of science fiction and crime thriller unlike anything I've ever read. I loved this book. It was complicated, mind-blowing, fascinating and just so damn fun. Not to mention a little scary, but in the best way. This book is heavy on the science and physic...

    WTF? I have no idea what went on in this book - and I am willing to consider that it's a bit over my head but really... there is murder mystery wrapped in a time-travel paradox wrapped in a pending apocalypse all a jumble. I kept reading hoping for it to make some sense but alas I e...

    Fascinating premise and a strong plot but it's endlessly confusing. So many alternate timelines end up muddling the plot. It was an experience. ...

    Inception on selle kõrval nagu Winnie Puhh. Raamat võtab su arusaamisvõime ja reaalsustaju nagu märja nartsu, väänab sellest viimsegi piisa ning virutab lõpuks lärtsuga vastu kahhelpõrandat. Hellusega. Soovitatav. Väga. ...

    Anyone who loved watching the X-Files, Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, or time travel shows will love this book! We follow Shannon Moss, a detective with more weight on her shoulders than Atlas carrying the world. She works for the NCIS, but she has the ability to hop into a governm...

    I wanted so badly to love this novel. It had such a fantastic story line and I'm a sucker for strong female characters. However, this novel and I just didn't work well. I found it a bit slow at times, which stopped me from really getting into the story. I also found that the way it was...

    I'm in a bit of a predicament here: I have to take this book back to the library today, because it's already three days overdue. This means I have to review it now. However, I'm pretty much speechless gob-smacked, and won't be able to write an intelligent critique for...at least a week...
