waiting for the sequel
This was a thrilling read. There was never a dull moment. From beginning to end I was excited to keep reading, to discover the secrets of quantum, and to see where the plot would take the characters. You must pay attention to the time line to feel the tension, which I struggled with at times because the story bounces all over the world, but you really want the main characters to succeed. Funnily enough, they have such an intriguing problem you can't really be sure what success would look like. I absolutely loved that ambiguity.
Read the story now
Style wise, this book is heavy on dialogue. Considering the subject matter, however, it makes sense and doesn't detract from the story. There are some technical problems with the writing that, once fixed, will definitely give the dialogue a smoother flow. Also, from my perspective, there was no need for so many romantic entanglements. But that is just a personal preference.
The author clearly says he is writing a trilogy -- I am eagerly awaiting the next piece of the puzzle.
