Flashforward - Robert J. Sawyer

Just...bad. Mediocre writing, huge cop-out finish, and HOLY OVEREXPLAINING BATMAN. I'm a pretty intelligent person, really. I can follow a pretty detailed explanation of whatever general physics you throw at me. Why neutrinos from the sun reacted with a particle collision to create a time-warp? Yeah, throw it at me. But I don't need it to take up FIVE PAGES. I'll hang with you for the refresher course on valence electrons and nuclear energy. But after a certain point, I just don't care anymore, friend. It's not THAT relevant to the story, and I don't need to understand it to get what's happening to our characters. When I need to know the history of all teh phyziks ever according to a fiction author, I'll take a course, mmm-kay?
