Zeller uses just enough detail to peak my inner nerd but not drown me in useless information. This story consists of strong balances throughout which is how it should be when the focus is a good ol' battle between good and evil. The characters seem to manifest into your reality as you read it and the author puts you deep inside their heads at the same time.
The writing style is strikingly cinematic and any film-maker reading "Quantum Acres" couldn't help but think it would make an exciting movie in a consistently popular genre (think "Close Encounters," "Quantum Leap" and "X-Files" for starters).
I would recommend this book to fans of any reading genre as it may surprise you and broaden your horizons for future readings, such as "Quantum Acres: Flashback."
Told in a clever flashback style (one of two, possibly three meanings hidden in the title), this is certainly quality storytelling: tense when it needs to be, laugh-out-loud funny in spots and always well told. Exciting parallel storylines come together nicely. The characters, while not exceedingly original, come off as flesh-and-blood people with actual thoughts and emotions. And as was the case with the original ("Quantum Acres," 2008), there are enough twists and surprises to keep readers guessing.
Fun and exciting, "Quantum Acres: Flashback" is a solid second act filled with appealing visual imagery. Pop some corn, turn on some John Williams music and settle in. Just make sure you keep the lights on!
The author wears his learning lightly. This is fiction to believe in as the characters come to immediate life. The science and the plot are rock solid and rocking, making this novel a cut above the rest.
Think the "X Files" or "Strange Encounters of the Third Kind" or "The Others" or "We Have Always Lived in the Castle." But once into "Quantum Acres" you'll be thinking only about the work at hand. Be prepared for surprises, and the pleasure of getting lost in a terrific story.
I highly recommend Quantum Acres.

Very well done, shades of Dean Koontz with a hint of Heinlein.
