Firstly, I have to say... WOW.
I *loved* this book! I found it a little difficult to get into at first, but after the first few chapters I was hooked, and upset my girlfriend by spending the following three nights giving all my attention to this book and not to her! I was fascinated by the whole thing. I think I identified with Ariel as I'm an arts graduate who is also interested in quantuum physics, but doesn't have the scientific background to underpin it. I have to say I found the epilogue a bit underwhleming, but it didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the novel.

Re: The bookray
I'm ready to post this out now, but Sardonyx is going on holiday and has requested that I hold on to it until early August. As there is no one else on the list I will keep it with me (and re-read it) unless LilyKlip has someone else for me to pass it on to first :)


[PS: I want to say "I love books like this," but the only other Pop Quantuum Physics novel I've read (or ever heard of) is "Moebius Dick" by Andrew Crumey. If anyone can recommend another novel along these lines please PM me and let me know!]

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The detail was great and involved a lot of abstract thinking on my part. I am looking forward to reading my books by this author.

Waiting for an address to pass this book on.
