In The Future is Yours, two Stanford misfits bond in college and subsequently discover a revolutionary process. Using quantum computing and a boat-load of start-up capital, they have a way to access future data from computers located in the present.
Think of how disruptive this would be on society. No more betting on sports or stock markets. In a way, no more free will. How can you change your future if it is already right there on your computer? Soon you, as a reader, begin to wonder if someone has already discovered this technology but kept it for their own use. Elon Musk comes to mind but what about Jeff Bezos and even Warren Buffet? Okay, before I continue down the QCAnon rabbit hole, I have to admit I adored this book. It made me think while I was reading it but also for days afterward. It also has just enough science so I didn’t feel I was back in college. Overall, The Future is Yours is a riveting and thought-provoking science fiction read. Don’t miss it! 5 stars and a big favorite! Plus it got picked up as a series by HBO Max. I can’t wait!
Side note: I personally love epistolary novels. I feel like I’m investigating “the case” myself rather than reading the result of someone else’s investigation. So high points for using this style in a science fiction novel!
Thanks to Del Rey Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
