I was drawn to the synopsis and at the same time unsure with some negative reviews about one dimensional characters but I don't regret purchasing this book and read it in one weekend. It is a sci-fi book so the plot is bound to be improbable but at the same time fascinating and I actually liked the ending, it made sense. And this is what escapism books are about, an escape from reality for a bit

It is science fiction, romance, mystery, and thriller all rolled up into a great story.

Imagine a disease so virulent that it eradicates human life from Earth. Imagine it to be an unanticipated result of medical research carried out by a consortium of super-geniuses. Now, imagine that you are one of those super-geniuses, and you, along with other closely associated super-geniuses, have been brought to a specific location in space-time and given the chance to change history. Further, imagine that changing history to save human life on Earth is not the only agenda; you and each of your super-genius associates have personal, less-altruistic, agendas as well. Finally, imagine that you are only aware of the events occurring in the present; the space-time you currently occupy. When Nick, a victim of the crash of flight of Flight 305 in an unknown location in England, assumes de facto a group of survivors, Harper, a journalist, is among them. When Harper becomes trapped in the wreckage, Nick becomes aware of a bond, perhaps even a sense of déjà vu between them. His awareness of that bond comes crashing into his consciousness in a confrontation with Sabrina, the closest thing they have to a medical doctor over administrated antibiotics to an injured Harper. Soon, Nick becomes aware that Sabrina and Yul, a mysterious Asian man whose laptop is always nearby know each other and share a secret; one he suspects will affect them all…while Grayson, acting the ass, subtly threatens Nick and Harper alike. Soon they will all discover there is much more to their plane crash than meets the eye and that as the other survivors of the crash die around them each of them will have a unique role to play in the drama that is unfolding. Departure contains a well-developed cast of characters all of which are important to the story and all of which are confused between destiny, responsibility, emotions and individual sense of right and wrong. Departure is a war of values between characters. Well written and edited, Departure is an imaginative sci-fi action adventure that will satisfy any sci-fi or action thriller fan; adrenaline with a message.

Very captivating. Good reminder for the world today. Sometime it is better to just slow down, turn off the internet, and enjoy a great book!

Seemed very possible

I liked it until about halfway through, where I started getting lost and unable to follow it well, so I quit it.

“I wonder what the world would be like if we could all glimpse our future before every major decision.” -Nick Stone Aboard Flight 305, JFK to Heathrow, sit Harper Lane and Nick Stone–complete strangers in first class. Somewhere over England the plane loses communication and crashes in a field, the middle of the plane torn in two. Once on the ground Nick immediately takes charge. As the survivors quickly discover phone service is non-existent and after days without rescue, Nick realizes something is terribly wrong. Throughout struggling for survival and unexpected enemies, the passengers of Flight 305 find themselves in a war-torn, disease ridden future, with little to no human race left. Joining together with fellow passengers, Yul Tan, computer and technological genius, and Sabrina, German laboratory doctor, Nick and Harper set out to find answers. The group soon discovers the “why” and attempts to determine the recurring them of saving themselves or the future of mankind. A.G. Riddle created a present-day world that transitioned seamlessly to 150 years in the future. Overall, //Departure// is a fast paced thriller with a steady story line and characters that are so diverse, but their fates forever entwined. According to A.G. Riddle’s website, //Departure// is to be turned into a feature film by 20th Century Fox. **** 4 Stars Departure by A.G.

An amazingly inventive book, ‘Departure’ takes the reader on an amazing sci-fi adventure. With amazing future technologies, a plot that kept me engaged and interested along with enough intrigue to keep you guessing what will happen next it’s a book that hard to put down. The character are engaging and likable, and I was able to connect with them easily which made me invested in their survival. The book is well written, painting a vivid picture in my mind’s eye. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

This was not a great book. Some of the ideas were interesting but most was way to scattered.
