Flip by Christopher J. Fox [4/10]

A credible attempt at classic near-term sci-fi, “Flip” posits an alternative quantum world into which a neuroscientist is “flipped” by malevolent forces, after which her husband, her daughter, a medic, and Buddhist monks desperately battle to keep her safe. The premise is sound, the action flows, the characters are enriched by capable dialogue, but something is missing in this book. And I think the missing element is a closer focus on the various characters – all come across as cyphers for the admittedly engaging plot. All in all, this is an enjoyable read that feels distinctly empty by book’s end.
