Snapshot is a Science Fiction detective story following Anthony Davis, a cop assigned to Snapshot Duty. In this vivid world that author Brandon Sanderson has built, society can create a snapshot of a specific day in time. The experiences people have, the paths they follow--all of them are real again for a one day in the snapshot. All for the purposes of investigation by the court. Davis's job as a cop on Snapshot Duty is straight forward. Sometimes he is tasked with finding where a criminal dumped a weapon. Sometimes he is tasked with documenting domestic disputes. Simple. Mundane. One day, in between two snapshot assignments, Davis decides to investigate the memory of a call that was mysteriously never logged at the precinct, and he makes a horrifying discovery.As in all many stories, Snapshot follows a wonderfully flawed character as he attempts to solve a horrific crime. Sanderson proves that no matter the genre, he is one of the most skilled storytellers in the business.… (meer)

Quick, interesting tale. Glad to see that it wasn't VR, as I'd originally expected from the synopsis. ( )

A decent short story but one I never got particularly in to, potentially due to a weird reading pace. I feel like it lacks some of Brandon Sanderson's hallmark elements but I'm actually glad to read something that's a bit of a change of pace. ( )

“Mustard?” Chaz replied. “Who puts mustard on a burrito?”

Sanderson recently posted the first two chapters of Snapshot online (1 / 2). CLIFFHANGER! Bought the whole thing. (It's $3...)

Basically, in the future it's possible to bring up a 'Snapshot'--a virtual copy of the world as it was some number of days ago--and insert a pair of cops into it, who can then live out the day and find out what really happened. It's a really cool idea. Once again, I would love to see the idea fleshed out even more, but even Sanderson's prolific writing can only handle so many series.

Plotswise, the big twist is mostly expected, given the main subject matter and genre, but it's still well done. And there are shades to it that I mostly definitely didn't see coming. Well done there. There are a few points where something that the narrator knows is obviously left out so the reader doesn't learn it early, but it's not often enough to annoy.

Characterwise, there are really only the two main characters and a few smaller parts. I really both of them, especially watching how they both deal with the nature of a 'fake' world. The idea of someone thinking they are in a Snapshot in the real world is vaguely terrifying.

Overall, worth the read. It's ~100 pages and $3 after all.

Side note: The ability to take things out of the Snapshot by way of eating them? Lots of bizarre possibilities there... ( )

This felt like Matrix starring Will Smith and a weird mustard loving sidekick. I didn't really feel connected to any of the characters, but then again I'm just really not the shortstory kinda person ( )
