Chip's 'not-that-bright' persona is very well portrayed. He often breaks into some death-defying scene with a wry comment..something about Pete's boxer shorts, or a reminiscence about eating doritos with his girlfriend. He uses the F-word about twice per sentence. His conversations with his friend Pete are irreverent, wry and hilarious.
They find out that they can communicate with Tesla through his journal, although they don't actually meet him until about 5/6 of the way through the book. The interplay between the brilliant, dignified old inventor and the foulmouthed Chip is just as entertaining as you might imagine. "Please do not call me a 'dude'," says Tesla, 'I have never vacationed or labored at a ranch..." In fact I wish this book would have given Tesla a larger role and more to say. Because of course, he is the character everyone is interested in.
The book reads quickly and is an entertaining light read, although after awhile I gave up trying to understand what was going on with the Universe-destroying baddie. It was like reading a comic book..."zzzzapp!!! Pow!!!" Chip doesn't claim to be a genius, and this book doesn't claim to be Great Literature. It will not grip your emotions or leave you with memorable insights. Just read it and have fun.
Bought on Audible (long commute = hundreds of books) where the Author read his own work and was perfectly entertaining.
Buy this book! Read it, listen to it - or do both with Whisper Sync like I do!
Funny, interesting, unexpected and a wild ride. Chip and Pete are perfect partners and their travels through the multiverse will keep you rooting for every "next door". Oh - and then there's Tesla!
Except for the inevitable happy ending (this is a comedy, after all), you never expect the twists & turns this gem will throw at you. A pleasure to read!
It doesn't hurt that Nicola Tesla is one of my all-time favorite historical people.
Please write more!
I picked this books up on a whim, because I'm a huge fan of Nikola Tesla's work, and have admired his genius for as long as I can remember.
Even though this story is delivered as a comedy, it's hard not to fall in love with Chip and Pete, the two main characters, or with Julie, who for all we know could be a fiction that keeps Chip sane through everything.
Okay, maybe sane is stretching things a little, but that's what makes this books so special. It takes a very simple premise and runs with what serves as a great read, a tribute to Tesla, and event even episodic stories that so many people have grown up on. Each chapter reads like an episode in an ongoing adventure, while still serving to bring things to a conclusion that could not have come about any other way.
