I really wanted to like the book and I'm interested in where this author goes from here - I just didn't feel as though he had given himself enough scope to properly play out the problem and all the permutations of the primary issue. Final opinion: coulda been great, feels like the author settled for okay.
But the quantum mechanics angles (and research) are wonderful and pretty well explained to the layman, as well as the writing being, of course, very competent and professional. The man is, after all, a star already.
One reviewer mentioned that it reads like it was made for the movies (where it went) and I tend to think this is true. If it had lent itself a bit more to literary fiction than movie fare it would have been a powerful book.
It feels like a book written to become a movie. The beginning left you wondering, hoping for something original and exciting but by the end you're left with the same package you've received a million times but with a different wrapping.
One thing I will say is that you figure out the basic premise of the book pretty early on. I wasn't blown away by the concept, but in execution and particulars it was fairly original. However, about 78% of the way into the book (exactly, according to my kindle reader app) my mind was completely and utterly blown. To those that read the book, it was the first online chat room episode. I never saw it coming, and where he went with this concept through the end of the book just knocked me back on my heels. It made me think, and feel, how I would react in his shoes and have some of the same thoughts he did (what is reality and individuality anyway?). This book left me somewhat shaken and most definitely emotionally moved. I guess you can't ask for more of a benefit from a book you read for pure enjoyment, so mission was accomplished.
While I initially thought I overpaid for the book, especially since it didn't seem that long, the last 22% of the book made it worth every penny to me. Bravo Mr. Crouch, this was a stellar achievement.
This is a love story and a tale of the road not taken. Jason Dessen could have been an award winning scientist but when Daniela became pregnant he decided he wanted to be a husband and a father. He loves his wife and child and has no idea that someone else wants his life.
This is a great book. I don't want to give anything away so nothing more about the plot. I had no idea what quantum mechanics is when I started reading. The reader doesn't need to know anything about it either. The basic premise is shown in an easily understandable way and is very much a part of how the story progresses. Trust Blake Crouch to deliver a book that you won't want to put down until you read the last page.
