Annotation In Robert J. Sawyer's novel ROLLBACK, Sarah Halifax, a doctor now in her 80s who many years previously translated a communication with beings from outer space, has the opportunity to live her life again by going through a "rollback." She and her husband both undergo the procedure, but only he emerges 60 years younger, although she is the one needed to interpret a new message from the aliens. ROLLBACK was nominated for both the 2008 Hugo and Nebula awards for best novel.
Editors Note Dr. Sarah Halifax decoded the first-ever radio transmission received from aliens thirty-eight years ago. Now, a second message is received, and Sarah, now eighty-seven, may hold the key to deciphering this one, too?if she lives long enough. A wealthy industrialist offers to pay for Sarah to have a rollback?a hugely expensive experimental rejuvenation procedure. She accepts on condition that Don, her husband of sixty years, gets a rollback, too. The process works for Don, making him physically twenty-five again. But in a tragic twist, the rollback fails for Sarah, leaving her in her eighties. While Don tries to deal with his newfound youth and the suddenly vast age gap between him and his wife, Sarah heroically struggles to figure out what a signal from the stars contains before she dies.
