5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a "must read!" 27 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
In my job I have the chance to read quite a few books, and I have to decide which ones I think will do well and which ones won't. I hadn't even heard of this author until a month ago when I started getting flooded with calls for The Accelerators. I placed the order and out of curiosity got one for myself too.
To put it simply, you won't read a better book than this one--ever. After reading it, I'm convinced that no summary or one-line phrase can boil this story down to its core. You just have to read it. It's a fantastic combination of adventure and science fiction unlike anything you have ever seen!
I've read it several times now, and it has quickly become my favorite book of all time--and I've read a lot of them! All I can say is to read this book! You won't be able to put it down even when you're done--you'll just flip back and read it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal Story! 29 Jun 2000
By David - Published on Amazon.com
This story breaks the science fiction mold, and takes you to a place you've never been before. If you read a lot of sci-fi, like I do, then this book is what you've been waiting for!
It's hard to know what to say without risking giving something away in the story. But most sci-fi books spend a lot of time building, then climax, and then try to tie up a bunch of loose ends in the end. Not The Accelerators! This story just grabs you in the first few pages--you can instantly feel that you're reading something different, something new, something unlike any other book you've read. And the story goes full-throttle all the way to the last page! You won't want to set it down!
It is really two stories, separated by thousands and thousands of years. But the stories intertwine and grow together until they become the same story. I don't want to say much more than that, for fear of giving something away. Let me just say this, though--this will be your favorite book! It has already made the rounds at my work, and it's all we talk about anymore!
If you read very much, then you've already realized that the really good, truly original stories are few and far between. This is one that you can just keep reading over and over, because it will be a long time before another one comes along that is this good! If it goes to movie, I'll be there every weekend, and then buy the video! If it goes to television, I'll be sitting there watching every episode! But, and this would be even better, I hope that the author considers doing at least one sequel!
I just can't say enough about this book! If I had to come up with one thing that could have been done better, it would be that I thought the picture on the cover was a little strange--I eventually understood its significance, but it took a while. Other than that, this is the perfect book, perfectly written. I wouldn't change a thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book will blow your mind! 31 Dec 1999
By Julie Stepper - Published on Amazon.com
The Accelerators grabs you in the very first chapter, and doesn't let go even after you've finished it. It's unlike any book I've read before, and as soon as I read it I had to buy it for almost all of my friends. It was amazing the way the story included so many actual historical events, making you think about reality and the entire history of the world in a whole new light. I've never read a book this good before! Thinking about it makes me want to go read it again!
5.0 out of 5 stars An accelerated review 2 Jan 2008
By Joe - Published on Amazon.com
I read an advanced copy a few years ago. My cousin wrote this book, and now, I'm surprised that I'm buying it from Amazon. I found the story to be very engaging from page 1. Its along the same line as highlander, but much more interesting and exiting.
5.0 out of 5 stars A New Kind of Sci-Fi 27 Sep 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book has a different feel than anything I've read before. It is everything that The Matrix was hoping to be, and more. You simply need to read it...
