Frameshift by Robert J. Sawyer

Rob has an excellent article post over on his blog about the structural analysis of Frameshift but I don't recommend reading it until you've already read the book, since it has some spoilers. Nonetheless, I recommend it for after you read it. Most insightful! Rob mentions that Frameshift had the most complex plotline of anything that he had written to date (1997). I have to agree. It isn't difficult to follow the various plotlines, though because Rob is a very clear writer. This story, like so many of his others which I've read, is tough to put down once you get started. The characters and dialog are as usual very well done and some recurring themes from other works crop up here. If you are interested in a list of some of Rob's recurring themes, take a look over here.
